How does the non-surgical rhinoplasty work?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, or “liquid” rhinoplasty, is a quick procedure that involves the use of dermal fillers to subtly change the shape of the nose. An expert plastic surgeon uses a fine needle to inject the filler strategically into the nose, depending on the goals discussed during the patient’s consultation.

The injection process usually takes just 15 or so minutes, although the patient might need to come a little early if they wish to have topical numbing cream applied. Once the procedure is complete, patients can get back to their normal activities almost immediately. This makes the non-surgical rhinoplasty perfect for busy, on-the-go people.

Patients are usually advised to refrain from exercising, wearing makeup, and touching their faces for the first 48 hours. Glasses should not be worn for 1-2 weeks to reduce the chance of developing indentations. Other than that, most activities are fine to resume right away!

Why is it called a “liquid” rhinoplasty?

This nickname for a non-surgical rhinoplasty comes from the fact that dermal fillers are used to create changes in the nose. These fillers are typically made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Although they are usually more gel-like than liquid, this nickname is used to describe the difference between a surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
