What Is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

During a liquid rhinoplasty (non-surgical rhinoplasty), subtle changes are made to the nose through the use of dermal fillers, such as Restylane. Neuromodulators such as BOTOX may also be used to refine the nasal tip. As a main benefit, a liquid rhinoplasty comes with no anesthesia, incisions, scarring, or recovery time. However, it may not be adequate for addressing more in-depth structural concerns that involve the reshaping of bone and cartilage.

What Are the Advantages of a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

  • Safe, effective, non-invasive
  • No discomfort or downtime
  • Can create subtle, natural-looking changes
  • Very effective in minimizing dorsal hump
  • Treatment can be highly customized
  • Boosts self-confidence

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Good candidates for a liquid rhinoplasty are healthy non-smokers with realistic expectations for their results. They may wish to correct a dorsal hump or dorsal concavity (scooped nose), an overly wide or poorly projected nasal tip, or nasal asymmetry. In general, non-surgical rhinoplasty will not be a solution in cases where the nose is over-projected, large and needs a size reduction.

How Is a Liquid Rhinoplasty Performed?

A liquid rhinoplasty will involve the use of facial fillers to contour irregularities in the nose. Neuromodulators may also be used strategically in some cases.

Fillers

Fillers can be used to control volume in the nasal contours. Many fillers today, including Restylane and Juvederm, are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in the human body. HA-based injectables bind with water molecules to gently plump depleted or recessed areas. Changes with Restylane and Juvederm can last from 9-12 months.

Neuromodulators

Neurotoxins, such as BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, can be injected at the base of the nose to temporarily incapacitate the muscle controlling the nasal-drooping mechanism (depressor septi). Bunny lines around the nose can also be minimized through the use of neuromodulators. Results typically last 3-5 months.

How Can I Prepare for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Before your liquid rhinoplasty, you may be advised to avoid certain blood-thinning medications and supplements, as these can increase the risk of bruising after your injections. Included are NSAIDS, Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Ginkgo, Garlic, Ginger, and Black Cohosh.

What Can I Expect on the Day of the Procedure?

A liquid rhinoplasty is a short, simple treatment that can be performed over one’s lunch break. The patient is fully awake and can go home right away after their injections. A topical anesthetic can be used to numb the skin, enhancing comfort. In addition, many fillers are formulated with lidocaine to ensure a stress-free experience.

What Can I Expect After Liquid Rhinoplasty?

After non-surgical rhinoplasty, patients may experience minor redness, bruising, or swelling that lasts from a few hours to a few weeks. Discomfort is minimal, but patients can opt to use an ice pack on the skin in order to alleviate any tenderness. Side effects are not typically noticeable enough that they would prevent the patient from immediately returning to work, school, or shopping.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Changes after a liquid rhinoplasty are not permanent, but they can last up to several years in some cases. Often a patient can use non-surgical rhinoplasty to “try on” nasal changes before committing to a surgical procedure with permanent results.

What are the risks?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is considered more complex than other procedures using dermal fillers and should therefore only be performed under the guidance of a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Parakh. Risks may include fever, blurred vision, swelling, redness, and others.

What type of fillers are used in a liquid rhinoplasty?

The most popular fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in the human body. These HA-based fillers include Juvederm and Restylane products, known for their efficacy and natural-looking results.
