Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a popular and effective method of improving the appearance of your nose without the need for invasive surgery. This minimally invasive procedure uses injectable fillers to shape and contour the nose for a more aesthetically pleasing look. Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides non-surgical rhinoplasty and other medical spa services to patients in The Woodlands, Spring, Houston, TX, and surrounding communities.
What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a liquid nose job or a nonsurgical nose job, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses filler injections to reshape the nose without the need for surgery. The procedure can be used to correct a variety of aesthetic issues such as a crooked nose, a nose that appears too long or too short, or a nose with a bump or depression. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can also be used to enhance the shape of the nose, including giving the bridge of the nose a more defined look or creating a more symmetrical shape.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed in-office and typically takes less than an hour to complete. The procedure begins with the injector numbing the area with a local anesthetic. Once the area is numb, the provider will inject the filler into the areas of the nose that need to be changed or corrected. The injection sites are then massaged to ensure the filler is evenly distributed and to create a more natural-looking result.
After the procedure is completed, there may be some swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the area. This is normal and should subside within a few days. In some cases, the results may be immediately visible, but in most cases, it can take up to two weeks for the full effects of the procedure to be seen. The injector may recommend taking over-the-counter painkillers to help with any discomfort in the days following the procedure.
How Long Do Results From Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last?
The results of a non-surgical rhinoplasty typically last for about six to twelve months. The duration of the results is largely dependent on the type of filler used and the specific area of the nose being treated.
In some cases, the results may last longer, up to eighteen months or even two years. It’s important to note that the results may not be permanent, and the procedure may need to be repeated in order to maintain the desired results.
The longevity of the results can also depend on your lifestyle and the care you take with your skin. For example, if you smoke or are exposed to excessive sun, the results may not last as long. Additionally, it’s important to follow the injector’s aftercare instructions and to avoid rubbing or pressing on the area for at least two weeks after the procedure.
