Rhinoplasty is one of the most requested surgical procedures among Americans, yet not every inquiry is carried out due to fear of the forever unknown. However, there is a new, cutting edge treatment that uses injectable fillers to correct and change the shape, size and position of the nasal tip, straighten the nose and even hide bumps, without going under the knife and being forever unrecognizable? It’s called liquid rhinoplasty and is a non-surgical technique used to temporarily modify the shape of the nose and enhance overall appearance for patients in NYC.
For the right patient, liquid rhinoplasty is a convenient and pain-free alternative to invasive surgical procedures. This innovative strategy offers a solution to any undesirable characteristics of an individual’s nose, but also allows patients to test out surgery with no real commitment. After all, the nose is the focal point of your face.
The benefits of liquid rhinoplasty seem endless:
- There is no recovery time required
- The results are immediate
- Not permanent
Liquid rhinoplasty procedures in NYC utilize hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers, including Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are preferred, as they are the easiest to mold and shape and can be removed within 24 hours if necessary. Since injectable fillers are used, you see the results instantaneously. Additionally, if you are unhappy with the results for whatever reason, the injectable can be dissolved within twenty-four hours. Liquid Rhinoplasty does not preclude one from opting to have a traditional surgical nose job procedure down the road.
Sounds to me like the typical cosmetic maintenance of the future. The longevity of the outcome can range based on the specifics of the customized treatment plan. Everything from the brand of the fillers to the target area being treated can affect how long the results will last.
What Are The Limitations Of Liquid Rhinoplasty?
While Liquid Rhinoplasty offers many benefits, there are some limitations of which you should be aware, including:
- Not Suitable for Nose Reduction
Injectable fillers can only be used to smooth and contour the existing nasal structure. While Liquid Rhinoplasty is great for concealing undesirable depressions or bumps, the nature of the procedure means it is not suitable for the vast majority of candidates who desire a nasal reduction.
- Not Appropriate For Every Nose
Some nasal structure or patient medical histories prohibit the use of injectable fillers to solve appearance issues in the nose. Only an experienced facial plastic surgeon can identify whether Liquid Rhinoplasty is right for you.
- Non-Permanent Results
Unlike a traditional nose job, Liquid Rhinoplasty results don’t last forever. Injectable fillers soften over time, returning your nose to its original shape and condition. If you want more permanent results, you should consider a traditional rhinoplasty procedure.
