What is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also called liquid rhinoplasty, is a procedure to reshape the nose using dermal fillers. Using these fillers, Dr. Arroyo is able to smooth out sharp angles, change the angle of the tip, or restore symmetry to the nose.

Traditional Rhinoplasty vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Traditional rhinoplasty and non-surgical rhinoplasty both address cosmetic issues with the nose, but they are very different procedures with different outcomes. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be used to address minor imperfections, including bumps or creating a more prominent nasal tip. For example, if you have a bump, the surgeon may use fillers to even out your nose. Keep in mind that this procedure is not for those who require substantial cosmetic changes but instead are looking for subtle enhancements. Traditional rhinoplasty is used for more drastic changes, including resizing or shaping the nose. This form of rhinoplasty also leads to a longer recovery time. 

Your Procedure

The process begins during your consultation with Dr. Arroyo, in which he will examine your nose, listen to your concerns, and let you know which rhinoplasty option is best suited for your needs.

Before the injection process begins, a topical anesthetic may be administered to keep you comfortable. The injection time is typically between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the desired outcome. 

After Your Procedure

Following your treatment, you can resume normal activities. The key benefit of this procedure is that it allows you to make changes to the nose and facial anatomy without the downtime of surgery. You may experience some minor bruising and swelling in the area, as well as some redness. This should mostly subside in a few hours, after which you’ll be able to see your results. Full results may take up to two weeks once all bruising and swelling have subsided. It is essential to note non-surgical treatments only offer temporary relief and not a permanent solution, with results lasting around six months.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty:

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an ideal choice for patients who want to smooth out bumps, create a more prominent tip, add some volume or lift the tip of their nose. It can also help those who wish to conceal bumps on the bridge of their nose. Some of the critical procedure benefits include:

  • Fast recovery - patients can return to normal activities right away
  • Costs are much lower than traditional rhinoplasty
  • No general anesthesia - you may be given a topical anesthetic
  • Non-permanent results - if you don’t love it

Is the Procedure Safe? 

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe procedure when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Arroyo. When selecting a medical provider to perform this treatment, it is vital to choose one who is knowledgeable in facial anatomy.

This will help ensure a safe procedure where the desired results are achieved. While the side effects are minimal, they are essential to note.

They may include bruising, swelling, or redness, which should subside within several days. If you have any questions or concerns after your procedure, you can always contact Dr. Arroyo’s office.
