What is a non surgical nose job and how does it differ from a traditional nose job?
Traditionally, a rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. It requires anesthesia and considerable healing time because of bruising and swelling, but the results are permanent. On the other hand, a liquid nose job (or non-surgical rhinoplasty) uses small needles to inject filler and to change the shape of the nose without any invasive surgery. As a result, the effects are temporary. It uses inject-able filler to lift depressed areas of the nose. As it is an augmentation procedure, it cannot reduce the size of the nose. Hyaluronic acid is used in this treatment, which is already in our bodies, making it perfectly safe.
How long does non-surgical rhinoplasty last?
Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, the results from this nonsurgical procedure are temporary, and last only as long as the fillers do, which can be anywhere from six to 12 months. The resolution of filler is gradual, It is something that dissipates over time. Some people notice the changes sooner, and for others, it takes longer.
What are non-surgical rhinoplasty side effects?
- Redness (usually disappears after a few days)
- Swelling and bruising sometimes occur – this slowly subsides over time.
- Nasal skin damage is a possibility but a great injector can assist.
- A lumpy or asymmetrical appearance or unsatisfactory outcome.
How much does a non surgical nose job cost?
There’s a wide price range for nonsurgical nose jobs. The price you pay will depend on how much filler you get, your provider’s office location, and their level of experience.
