Liquid Rhinoplasty

Liquid Rhinoplasty

Your nose is the centre of your face and one of the most important facial characteristics we have. It plays a huge part in determining the overall appearance and aesthetic balance of your face. A rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose) is an effective surgical procedure for enhancing or altering the appearance of your nose. A liquid rhinoplasty is a non-surgical correction, which is perfect for patients who do not want invasive surgery and the associated wait time.

What is a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

Liquid rhinoplasty is a completely non-surgical nose job. There is no cutting, no recovery time and it is a short duration procedure. Rather than undergoing surgery we simply use a dermal filler to reshape the nose via injections.

Benefits of Liquid Rhinoplasty

  • The procedure takes less than 30 minutes (usually only about 10 minutes)
  • The nose can be reshaped and enhanced in multiple different ways
  • Depressions in the walls of the nose can be made to appear flat
  • Botulinum toxin can be used to give the nose a more upward point
  • Results are temporary and can be altered or reversed as desired 
  • The liquid rhinoplasty procedure is relatively painless as topical numbing cream is used prior to injection
  • Mild to moderate swelling for one day
  • physical exercise can start the day after the procedure
  • The procedure is significantly less costly than rhinoplasty surgery
  • Results can last for up to one year

What can be fixed with a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

  • A mildly crooked nose can be improved
  • Visible imperfections from previous surgery can be easily corrected 
  • Imperfections to your nose bridge or tip
  • Visible, asymmetric tip cartilage
  • A pinched tip
  • High nostrils can be lowered
  • A wide bridge can be narrowed if not too high

How does it work?

Filler is injected to reshape different parts of the nose and camouflage imperfections. With a liquid rhinoplasty, we can “add” to the nose but not take volume away. While we don’t make the size of your nose smaller, in some cases we can alter its shape to appear smaller.

Depending on the filler used and patient characteristics, filler can last from 9 months to 2 years.

Is it painful?

Any pain experienced is minimal and we provide numbing cream to reduce this.

How long does it take? Is there downtime?

Depending on the complexity of the correction, the treatment can take between 5 and 30 minutes.

Patients may experience some swelling, redness at the injection site and some bruising following the injection. In most cases, patients are able to wear makeup soon after the treatment. You can resume your daily activities as scheduled after you leave the clinic.

When can you see results?

The results are immediate. You can see the changes as we perform the procedure making it highly visual, satisfying and rewarding.

While in most cases, only one treatment session is needed to achieve the desired outcome, some patients may require 1-2 treatments to achieve their intended results.
