What is a Liquid Rhinoplasty?
A liquid rhinoplasty, also called a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, uses minimally invasive techniques to subtly improve the shape and size of the nose. While traditional rhinoplasty is the gold standard for nose surgery, liquid rhinoplasty may be a better fit for individuals who want minor improvements that can be achieved without surgery. Members of The Rhinoplasty Society are experienced in the art and science of rhinoplasty and are familiar with many techniques to help patients achieve their desired results.
Benefits of Liquid Rhinoplasty
While traditional rhinoplasty is the best option to achieve the most long-lasting results, there are many benefits to considering nonsurgical rhinoplasty options. A liquid rhinoplasty provides subtle improvements to the shape and structure of the nose. This can include improving bridge and nose tip definition, filling in scars or depressions, and more. A board-certified surgeon may recommend liquid rhinoplasty to people who want subtle improvements without the expense and recovery that comes with surgical rhinoplasty.
When considering liquid rhinoplasty, it's important to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic or reconstructive surgeon who adheres to all safety regulations for surgical and nonsurgical procedures alike and understands the complex anatomy of the nose.
Candidates for Liquid Rhinoplasty
Liquid rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers or fat transfers to augment nose definition and improve its shape. It's important to note that the purpose of fillers is to add volume, so a liquid rhinoplasty is not ideal for those who want a smaller nose. Potential candidates for a liquid rhinoplasty are those who:
- Want minor changes
- Want to improve the definition of the nasal tip or bridge
- Have minor deformities or asymmetry
- Want to fill depressions or scars
Nonsurgical Nose Enhancements
Many people who consider rhinoplasty want to make subtle, natural changes to their noses. Rather than undergoing surgery and receiving an implant or cartilage graft, liquid rhinoplasty allows patients to enjoy the benefits of rhinoplasty without the downtime or costs associated with traditional surgery. The Rhinoplasty Society is a non-profit professional organization of surgeons who are highly trained and can help you make the best decision for anything related to rhinoplasty.
