Liquid Rhinoplasty is the art of correcting certain nasal imperfections. It is a non-surgical procedure consisting of the injection of dermal fillers, and this injection has proven effective in treating many imperfections when you’re looking for an alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. Liquid Rhinoplasty can also be used for minor surgical post-rhinoplasty issues. The injection is usually applied just between the cartilage and the deepest layer of the skin. Liquid Rhinoplasty addresses your dorsal hump issue. A dorsal hump is caused by many factors. It might be genetic or caused by an accident or trauma. Liquid rhinoplasty can also fix a drooping nasal tip, which is a condition in which the tip of your nose is pointed downward instead of pointing forward or slightly upwards.
Liquid Rhinoplasty will shape your nose to give you the profile you’ve wanted and is excellent for reducing the visibility of a nasal hump. Liquid Rhinoplasty can also make the tip of your nose more defined or reduce a droopy nasal tip. It is also a relatively inexpensive, efficient way to reshape your nose without the need for surgery. Importantly, if you get injected with a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, it can be reversed in the rare case you don’t like the results or have any allergic reactions. To do this, the doctor will inject hyaluronidase to dissolve the dermal fillers injected.
If you have small or even moderate nasal irregularities, then you are the perfect liquid rhinoplasty candidate. Someone who must wear glasses regularly is not the perfect candidate, as wearing heavy glasses may cause the filler to move under the skin causing the injection to be displaced. It’s usually not recommended to use your glasses for about one to two weeks after the procedure. Liquid rhinoplasty won’t give you the desired results if you want your nose to look smaller or smooth out a large hump. It is also not recommended to address functional issues, like trouble in breathing, congestion, and other related issues.
You should go through your medical history with Dr. Harris before you start any treatment. You can either sit or lie down for the treatment., Your nose will then be cleaned and an anesthetic cream will be applied on the skin before the filler injection. Small amounts of the filler are carefully injected into specific areas and then the filler is gently smoothed out, not massaged, to prevent pressure and filler misplacement. Liquid Rhinoplasty takes about 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the amount of correction and the filler needed.
After Liquid Rhinoplasty, you should avoid any pressure on the treated area for about one to two weeks after the treatment. Normally, the results last for six months to two years, depending on the person and type of filler used. Our Beverly Hills liquid rhinoplasty patients results start to appear instantly and are fully visible in a week or two. You may need follow-up treatments to maintain your new look.

One possible side effect is filler migration, meaning the filler can migrate to other adjacent areas near the site of injection. Other side effects that can occur are redness, tenderness, and swelling, which typically resolve within one to two week. Rarer issues such as vascular occlusion have also been seen. It is crucial to have your injections performed by an experienced injector like Dr. Harris who has an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and knows exactly how to handle any side effects should they arise.
Liquid rhinoplasty is much less expensive than surgical rhinoplasty. The cost ultimately will depend on the type and amount of the filler used.
Usually, Hyaluronic acid-based filler is applied, and sometimes Botox or Dysport is used in addition to complement the effects of the filler.
The procedure might cause a little discomfort afterward, but this typically resolves quickly within a couple of hours.
