Your nose is the most central and most prominent feature on your face. If you don’t approve of how it looks, your nose can be a major threat to your self-confidence and overall appearance. Fortunately, you may not have to “go under the knife” to get a more attractive nose. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd® proudly offers liquid rhinoplasty to patients in Toledo.
What is Liquid Rhinoplasty?
A liquid rhinoplasty, also known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty or a non-surgical nose job, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using injectable fillers to reshape or enhance the appearance of the nose without surgery. This procedure can be used to correct minor imperfections, such as a small bump or unevenness, by strategically injecting fillers to create a desired shape or contour. It is a non-invasive alternative to traditional surgical rhinoplasty and typically involves minimal downtime.
How Can Fillers and Botox Make Cosmetic Nasal Corrections?
Dermal fillers and Botox can be used in a cosmetic nose procedure to address specific concerns. Here are some of the issues that can be corrected or improved using these injectables:
Nasal asymmetry: Dermal fillers can be strategically injected to correct minor asymmetry, making the nose appear more balanced and symmetrical.
Dorsal hump or bump: Fillers can be used to camouflage or soften the appearance of a dorsal hump or bump on the nose, creating a smoother profile.
Nose contour irregularities: Fillers can help to smooth out any irregularities or indentations along the nasal bridge, resulting in a more even and streamlined contour.
Nasal tip refinement: By injecting fillers, the shape and projection of the nasal tip can be adjusted, making it appear more refined or lifted.
Nasal tip drooping: Botox injections can be used to relax the muscles that pull the nasal tip downward, resulting in a subtle lift and correction of a drooping tip.
Although temporary, fillers and Botox can be an excellent way to “try on” the results of a surgical nose job without the risk of permanent correction.
More About Non-Surgical Nose Jobs
Liquid rhinoplasty has gained popularity in recent years as a non-surgical alternative to traditional surgical rhinoplasty. Despite its known popularity, you may still have questions and concerns about this non-surgical cosmetic procedure for your nose.
Is Liquid Rhinoplasty Safe?
When performed by a skilled and experienced professional, such as Dr. Peter Koltz, liquid rhinoplasty is generally considered safe. Serious complications are rare but, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects that should be discussed with the treating plastic surgeon.
Can I Go Return to Work Immediately After a Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Liquid rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically performed in an office setting. The procedure can often be completed within 15-30 minutes, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately afterward with little to no downtime.
What Can I Expect with Liquid Rhinoplasty Results?
The results of liquid rhinoplasty are not permanent. The duration of the effects can vary depending on the type of filler used, individual metabolism, and other factors. On average, the results of liquid rhinoplasty can last from several months up to a year before touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired appearance.
