In the past, surgery was the only option for women and men who wanted to smooth nasal bumps, eliminate a dorsal hump, or modify the shape of their nose.

However, these days, patients are able to instantly conceal imperfections and refine nasal appearance with a non-surgical rhinoplasty in Washington DC.

While this in-office procedure offers a number of benefits, it’s also important for patients to be aware of its limitations in order to make a well-informed decision.

Continue reading to learn all about a Washington DC non-surgical rhinoplasty, including the treatment pros and cons.

What is a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?

A non-surgical rhinoplasty is an injectable treatment that uses dermal fillers to temporarily build-up the nose and correct imperfections.

It’s an excellent option for women and men who are not ready to commit to a surgical rhinoplasty or those with minor nasal issues who wish to avoid an invasive procedure and recovery.

What Are the Pros of a Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty?

There are a number of reasons that patients in Washington DC elect to undergo a non-surgical rhinoplasty. To start, the treatment is noninvasive and requires zero downtime. In fact, the procedure is performed in the comfort of our office and usually takes 30 minutes.

During a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, the nose is numbed with a topical anesthetic and a hyaluronic acid filler, such as Restylane or Juvederm, is injected and then massaged to correct nasal irregularities.

What’s more, a liquid nose job can address a wide range of concerns including a dorsal hump, bumps, divots, and minor asymmetries. It can also narrow nasal appearance and rotate the nasal tip for a more proportionate and refined look.

Results are immediate and can last nine-to-12 months.

What Are the Cons of a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?

Despite these advantages, patients should also consider the limitations of a non-surgical rhinoplasty, such as the treatment’s temporary nature.

Additionally, a liquid rhinoplasty is not designed to correct a large hump, a nasal tip with too much projection, a severely crooked nose, or significant nasal deformities.

It’s also unable to reduce the size of the nose or change its overall structure.
