Both women and men want to look their best today without resorting to invasive surgery. That is why rhinoplasty candidates in the New Year are opting for temporary injectable rhinoplasty treatments. This innovative method of improving the looks of the nose is the ideal way to avoid surgery and look your best at the same time.
What is Liquid Rhinoplasty? How Does It Work?
Liquid rhinoplasty is a non-surgical process that is designed to alter the shape of the nose by using injectable fillers. The procedure can enhance the nose’s size, shape, and, in some cases, the positioning of the nasal tip. It can also be used to hide a bump or straighten the nose.
Liquid rhinoplasty is not specifically suited for everyone as it is only indicated to fill in depressions or hollows in the nasal cavity. Also, the procedure does not make the nose smaller or remove bumps. Therefore, you need to set up a consultation to see if this particular procedure is designed for you.
What Kind of Fillers are Used?
Typically, fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse, are used for liquid rhinoplasty. Usually, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane are the injectables preferred for the process. The reason HA fillers are frequently utilized is because –
- They are easier to shape and mold;
- They can be entirely removed within a period of 24 hours if the client changes his mind; and
- They will not prevent or interfere with a future rhinoplasty surgery.
Some of the Pros and Cons: What Liquid Rhinoplasty Will Not Do
Liquid rhinoplasty is considered advantageous over surgical rhinoplasty as the process requires little, if any, downtime. Therefore, people can resume daily activities soon after a treatment session. The procedure has proven to be helpful in correcting any minor depressions and patients can see immediate results. Also, liquid rhinoplasty is considered very safe. However, as mentioned, if you want to make your nose look smaller, liquid rhinoplasty is not a process that will work for you.
How Long Does the Procedure Last?
The length of time that a liquid rhinoplasty will last depends on where a filler is injected. It is also dependent on the patient. Some people’s systems break down products at a faster rate while other body systems hold onto the fillers longer. Therefore, at this time, no guarantee for duration can be made.
Discomfort, if any, is Kept to a Minimum
Liquid rhinoplasty is usually not uncomfortable or does not hurt as a topical numbing agent is applied to the injection site before administration. Also, each filler contains lidocaine, which is a numbing medicine. The numbness typically lasts around an hour.
Therefore, if you are interested in improving the looks of your nose for the New Year, you will want to consider the advantages of liquid rhinoplasty. Not only can injectables be used for smoothing wrinkles, they can enhance the look of your nose as well. Set up a consultation before you decide on the treatments.
