Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty- The How, What, And Why About This Liquid Nose Job Everybody Is Talking About
Often referred to as “nonsurgical rhinoplasty” or “nonsurgical nose job” this less invasive procedure is gaining wide popularity for yielding fantastic results at a significantly reduced cost compared to a full rhinoplasty procedure. While Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty isn’t permanent, there are certain fillers that are permanent. If you’re wondering if a nonsurgical nose job is the solution you’ve been seeking, we’ve laid out some helpful information to aid in your decision making.
How Does It Work?
I’m sure you’re wondering how exactly this works. So, to put it simply, surgeons use tiny needles to inject filler. It probably sounds wild- using filler we commonly associate with plumping skin and adding volume. Don’t most people seek smaller noses? Correct. And this nonsurgical, filler based solution achieves just that.
There are a few different brands available that all achieve pretty much the same results. Ranging from hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restyling and Juvederm to calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) these fillers effectively shape and contour the structure of the nose to create a more aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical look. Patients undergoing treatment are fully awake and are provided with a mirror to watch every stage of their procedure and offer feedback throughout the process. This particular procedure yields results that last from 1-2 years depending on the patient with minor touch-ups suggested after two years.
What Is The Recovery Time?
Recovery from nonsurgical rhinoplasty is pretty quick and painless. Patients are fully awake during the procedure, so they will experience no negative effects of general anesthesia or sedation. Once the procedure is complete, patients can return to work or their normal routine the same day. It’s pretty much as simple and straightforward as that. A lot of patients are wary of undertaking a full rhinoplasty procedure because of the cost, lengthy recovery time, and healing associated with such a complex surgery. Filler nose jobs are much more convenient, relaxed and much less aggressive in comparison. This treatment has just about every beauty publication buzzing with positive reviews, testimonials and enthusiastic disbelief!
What is the Cost?
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is about 80% less costly than a surgical procedure. An average surgical nose job in the U.S. today is roughly $5,000-$20,000, compared to a filler rhinoplasty procedure, which can be as little as $1,200 a session. This reduced cost makes rhinoplasty feasible and widely available to anyone interested.
Is it safe?
A common question on the minds of many is, of course, is it safe? What are the risks and dangers of nasal injections? A valid concern, yet nothing to be scared about. If you’re in the hands of a great doctor that is licensed, has a solid background in surgical rhinoplasty and a deep understanding of nasal anatomy, there is likely nothing to fear.
Complications have the potential to occur when illegitimate practitioners inject filler into dangerous spots around the sides of the nose, where the core nasal arteries lay beneath the skin’s surface. These arteries are the main passageways carrying blood to the eye region and surrounding skin tissue. If injected poorly, there is a risk that these passageways could be blocked by the filler and stop blood flow to the necessary areas. Again, if you’re discerning when selecting your doctor, you have nothing to fear. Compared with most other plastic surgeries and injection procedures, this nonsurgical rhinoplasty is one of the safest and least invasive procedures available.
