A Nose Job Using Only Fillers || Everything You Need To Know
The filler world is slowly but surely covering all our skin issues, from our thin lips to our aged hands. And the latest filler innovation is the liquid nose job. Yes, you heard it right… You no longer need to go under the knife if you want a slimmer or straighter nose. Now you can reshape your nose non-surgically using only filler. The fact that it requires no anesthesia, no scalpel, and no major recovery period sounds like a dream. Here is all you need to know.
What Is A Liquid Nose Job?
A liquid nose job is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that utilizes injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, to alter the shape of the nose. Unlike surgical nose jobs, a liquid nose job doesn’t involve removing anything from the nasal structure. Instead, the filler is added to create a more balanced facial appearance.
How Is It Done?
The process involves injecting precise quantities of filler into targeted areas of the nose, to smooth out pumps, enhance volume, or change the nose’s contour.
The treatment goes this way: Your board-certified physician will start by applying numbing cream or gel, discuss your desired outcome then start injecting. The whole process won’t take more than 30 minutes.
What To Expect?
As you may already know, most fillers are temporary. With that being said, you can expect the results of a nose job to last anywhere from 6 months to two years. The duration of a liquid rhinoplasty can very much depend on the type of filler, the amount of filler used, and the individual’s metabolism.
Does It Work For Everything?
Here is the thing, liquid rhinoplasty is not a replacement for a surgical nose job in cases where significant changes to the shape, structure, and functionality of the nose are desired. It works great for people with minor imperfections such as a small bump or depression in the bridge of the nose, asymmetry, or a slightly crooked nose. So it is not for individuals who need dramatic changes.
What’s The Point Of Opting for a Temporary Nose Job?
You may wonder. If the results fade away within a maximum of two years, why not choose a permanent nose job instead? We had the same question, and the answer is rather straightforward. If you desire a lasting transformation and are willing to undergo surgery, then the surgical option is certainly the way to go.
However, if you are uncertain about making a permanent change or wish to experiment with a new appearance without committing to surgery, then a liquid rhinoplasty is an ideal choice for you. The fact that it is non-invasive and requires no downtime is really a plus.
Not to mention the significant disparity in price points. A liquid rhinoplasty typically ranges from $1,500 to $3,500, while a surgical nose job can cost up to $15,000.
Is It Safe?
While rare, there are potential risks that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Filler in the nose may cause blood vessel damage, asymmetry, scarring, an allergic reaction, or infection. This is why it is so important to go to a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience in both performing liquid nose jobs and surgical nose jobs.
