How Is It Any Different From the Traditional Rhinoplasty?
The old way of rhinoplasty required anesthesia and some serious recovery time. Now filler and/or Botox can get the job done. It comes with no downtime but perhaps a small bruise that will clear up as quickly as any other contusion.
Moreover, the filler being used (typically hyaluronic acid filler) is not permanent. So if the procedure doesn’t meet expectations, injections of what’s called hyaluronidase can undo it all.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Allow New York City’s Dr. Dara Liotta take it away. “The filler is used to camouflage issues such as a crooked nose,” Dr. Liotta explained. “Or a bump on the. Nose, or to give the illusion that the nose is straighter.”
What Else Does the Liquid Rhinoplasty Provide?
Along with a straighter bridge of the nose, the filler is evening out the volume of the nose. So more balanced, the nose comes out looking far more smaller and refined.
Dr. Liotta described the results as an extensive “contouring makeup on your nose.”
Anything It Doesn’t Work On?
Liquid rhinoplasty is unable to narrow the nasal tip or make the width of the nose base any smaller.
Are the results sustainable?
Continent on the target area and brand of filler, results can remain apparent for as long as two whole years, more regularly lasting a little over nine months.
Is it risky?
The procedure cannot accurately described as risky. There is a particularly rare complication called vascular compromise that is technically at risk of happening.
But Dr. Liotta could not emphasize enough how “extremely rare” it was.
Every office is different. But somewhere between $1,000 and $1,500 is in the right ballpark.
