A Liquid Rhinoplasty, or Non-surgical Rhinoplasty, is the injection of dermal fillers (Hyaluronic Acid) into the nose to alter its shape. It’s a great option for patients that have deformities of their nose, such as a dorsal hump or asymmetry . It can also be convenient for those clients with a rhinoplasty and have minor irregularities postoperatively.
As far as downtime, people who swear by liquid rhinoplasty love that there’s practically no recovery time. You can be back to work and your normal activities the very same day. Most filler ingredients will dissolve into your skin layer within 6 months. Some filler ingredients will last up to 3 years.
After liquid rhinoplasty, you may see pain, swelling, and redness where your injection was inserted. Within an hour or two, the injection should start to settle. The redness should start to subside, and you’ll be able to better see your desired results.
Bring an ice pack to use after your appointment. Ask your doctor if it’s OK to use it to minimize redness and inflammation.
Results should be fully visible within a week or two. Redness or bruising should completely subside by then.
