Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty

Also called the nonsurgical nose job, liquid rhinoplasty, or liquid nose job, this procedure is highly requested by patients who are bothered by their nose appearance but don’t want to deal with the hassle of surgery and the recovery it requires.

What is Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty?

If you want to improve the appearance of your nose but don’t want to go under the knife, nonsurgical rhinoplasty may be your solution. This quick fix uses dermal fillers to tweak your nose shape – perfect if you hope to avoid surgery.

You can achieve your reshaped nose with just one trip to the Simply.Aesthetics office as this is done in a single treatment, and you can enjoy your results for up to six months or even longer. 

What is a PDO Nose Thread Lift?

A PDO nose thread lift is a nonsurgical method to tweak the shape of your nose, often, like liquid rhinoplasty, dubbed the “nonsurgical nose job.” With results that can stick around for up to 2 years, this procedure can smooth out bumps or other irregularities along the bridge, enhance the area of your nose between your eyes, and add a subtle lift to a drooping tip.

During a nose thread lift, we carefully and precisely place threads to lift and reposition the tissues of your nose and straighten, define, and elevate its appearance.

Similarly to nose filler, PDO threads are an ideal solution if you are looking for minor nose improvements without diving into surgery. Not sure if filler or threads are right for you? When you visit us for a nonsurgical rhinoplasty consultation, we’ll guide you through all your options and craft the perfect treatment plan tailored to your preferences and goals.

Liquid Rhinoplasty vs. Surgical Rhinoplasty: What’s the Difference?

The liquid nose job has pros and cons compared to the surgical route. You won’t be able to shrink your nose or lock in those changes for the long haul like you would with surgery, but you can smooth out any bumps or add a little volume for a subtle tweak.

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty may be the answer to your nose concerns if you want to:

  • Add volume to your nose
  • Refine your nasal tip
  • Smooth out any pesky lumps or bumps
  • Conceal a small bump on the bridge of your nose
  • Straighten a crooked nose

If you’re looking to make small adjustments like smoothing out stubborn bumps or improving the shape of your tip, nonsurgical rhinoplasty may be just the treatment for you. On the other hand, traditional rhinoplasty might be more suitable, if you are looking for a major nose transformation that lasts forever.

Advantages of nonsurgical rhinoplasty over surgical rhinoplasty include:

  1. Quick and easy – It’s a speedy procedure, typically lasting less than an hour in the office.
  2. No downtime – Forget about taking 1-2 weeks off from work and 3-4 weeks off from the gym for rhinoplasty recovery. There’s no downtime with the nonsurgical route!
  3. Instant gratification – Results are immediate, so you’ll instantly see the improvements in your nose.
  4. Reversible – Unlike surgery, you can reverse changes with nose fillers if you’re unhappy.
  5. Scar-free – No incisions or scarring means you’re left with a smooth nose with no scars inside or out.
  6. Outpatient procedure – You get to return home the same day as your treatment, making it super convenient.
  7. Quick treatment – In the hands of a skilled injector, the procedure can be done in a flash, sometimes in 15 minutes or less.
  8. No time off – You don’t have to worry about missing work and catching up later. In most cases, you can get back to business the same day.

Cons of opting for nonsurgical rhinoplasty include:

  1. Temporary results – If you’re after a major, permanent change, this might not be a suitable procedure for you.
  2. Risks associated with dermal fillers – As this procedure is done with fillers, it yields a small chance of bleeding or vision damage. At Simply.Aesthetics, we ensure this doesn’t happen by only having highly trained professionals inject your nose.
  3. No insurance coverage – Unfortunately, insurance won’t foot the bill for this cosmetic tweak.
  4. Limited abilities – You can’t make your nose slimmer, fix a deviated septum or hide the appearance of a dorsal hump with this procedure,

Will A Liquid Nose Job Make My Nose Bigger?

A nonsurgical nose job can add volume to your nose, but dermal fillers won’t make your nose appear unnaturally large when done properly. Volume is added carefully and with an artistic eye to create a more balanced appearance with the rest of your facial features. 

Can a Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Make My Nose Slimmer?

Unfortunately, no. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty isn’t capable of reducing the size or narrowing the width of your nose. It can, however, smooth out any bumps and enhance symmetry, giving the illusion of a straighter, more symmetrical appearance.

What Happens During a Treatment?

Before your nonsurgical rhinoplasty treatment, you should schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and concerns with one of the experienced injectors at Simply.Aesthetics. At this consultation, your provider will evaluate your concerns and help you decide if a nonsurgical nose job can realistically help you achieve your goals.

During your nose filler appointment, once you feel comfortable and ready to proceed, we’ll have you lie down with your face tilted upward. We may apply a topical anesthetic to your nose and the surrounding areas to keep you as comfortable as possible during the injections.

Once the numbing cream starts working and you’re happy to start, we’ll carefully inject filler into the areas around or on your nose. You may feel a slight pressure but this is quite normal and should be nothing more than a mild pinching sensation to most.

The whole treatment usually wraps up in 45 minutes or less, making it a quick and easy way to tweak your nose without the planning, pain, or downtime involved with a big surgery.

What Type of Filler is Used?

A nonsurgical nose job is typically done with fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like ingredient that plumps up the skin and reshapes your nose as it settles in. This can fix issues like bumps or lopsidedness. 

Here at Simply.Aesthetics, we can use various fillers to reshape the nose depending on the treatment required, the patient’s goal and to achieve the best results.

Recovery, Risks & Results

After a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, you might notice minor side effects like redness and sensitivity around the treated area. These usually resolve within a day or two.

Healthline says other possible side effects may include swelling, bruising, nausea, or filler migration. None of these are substantial enough to require downtime so you can safely restart your usual routine almost immediately. The reason people love liquid rhinoplasty so much is the fact that it doesn’t intrude on their busy lifestyles.

Nose fillers typically settle within an hour or two of your treatment, and as redness and any other mild side effects resolve, you’ll be able to rock your desired look in less than a week.

We’ll provide you with detailed instructions to take home about how to take care of yourself following your nose injections. Here are our tips to get back to your usual routine as fast as possible following nonsurgical rhinoplasty: 

  • Use ice to minimize any redness or swelling
  • Stay upright for about 3-4 hours
  • Resist the urge to press, rub, or itch the injection spots
  • When it’s time for bed, prop up your head with extra pillows to keep any swelling at bay
  • Take it easy on activities that dramatically increase your heart rate for at least 24 hours after your treatment

As with any procedure, there are risks involved with a liquid nose job. Since your nose is packed with blood vessels and located close to your eyes, this kind of rhinoplasty needs a skilled hand.

Make sure you’re in the hands of a licensed professional, such as the aesthetic injectors here at Simply.Aesthetics, to avoid any complications. According to Cleveland Clinic, nonsurgical rhinoplasty risks can include:

  • Advanced or persistent redness or swelling
  • Blurred vision
  • Fever
  • Vascular complications
  • Tissue necrosis (death of tissues)
  • Impaired or lost vision

The side effects mentioned above are rare, but we always warn patients of these risks so they are fully prepared. Monitor yourself for any signs of trouble, and don’t hesitate to reach out if anything seems off.

How long your liquid rhinoplasty lasts can vary, but typically, you can expect your results to show for about six months. Results can last anywhere from 4 months to 3 years depending on your skin and the type of filler used.

Am I a Candidate?

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is about targeting and reshaping specific areas of your nose – usually the bridge, tip, and sides. 

The nonsurgical nose job is great for:

  • Making the tip of your nose project and stand out more
  • Adding a bit of volume to your nose to smooth out and hide inconsistencies like bumps, lumps, or dips
  • Giving your nose a subtle lift
  • Camouflaging a mild bump on the bridge of your nose to improve your profile 

If you want to make your nose smaller, get rid of bigger bumps, or dramatically change the framework of your nose, liquid rhinoplasty might not be the best fit for you.
