Liquid Rhinoplasty San Diego
I t is now possible to correct some cosmetic irregularities of the nose without surgery. Deemed a Liquid Rhinoplasty because of the use of injectionable dermal filllers, a liquid rhinoplasty can easily be performed in an office visit. A lunchtime nose job is now an option. This non-surgical procedure can transform your look in less than half an hour. These photographs were taken 23 minutes apart, before and after a Liquid Rhinoplasty.
With a lunch time nose job you can opt for temporary or more permanent correction depending upon the product. Hyaluronic acid products that are designed to provide lift (Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Ultra+) are easily reversed with a dissolving agent making it possible to “try on” your new nose shape before going to a more permanent option. These products typically last 9 months. For longer lasting correction, Radiesse is the product of choice at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa.
A Liquid Rhinoplasty can:
- Improve the symmetry of the nose
- Visually narrow a wide dorsum by adding height to the bridge
- Improve the position of the nasal tip
- Straighten the nose
- Hide a bump
The procedure is not for everyone since it can only be used to fill hollows or depressions or add projection to the dorsum of the nose. It cannot make the nose smaller and does not remove bumps.
Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Ultra+, Radiesse and Bellafill can be used for a Liquid Rhinoplasty. Hyaluronic acid products (Restylane and Juvederm) are preferred because they are easiest to mold and shape, can be completely removed within 24 hours by the injection of another medication (if so desired) and they do not interfere or prevent a future surgical rhinoplasty.
Radiesse and Bellafill provide longer lasting correction than the hyaluronic acid fillers. They cannot be dissolved, so skill and experience are important when choosing your Liquid Rhinoplasty injector.
