How Long Does Liquid Rhinoplasty Last?
A person’s nose is one of the most visible and defining facial features. If you dislike some part of your nose or which it looked a different way, you may have thought about getting a nose job. However, not everyone is ready for a surgical rhinoplasty procedure, or they don’t yet want to commit to a permanent change.
A liquid rhinoplasty is a game-changer for aesthetic treatments for the nose that causes no trauma to the bone or cartilage. Instead, liquid rhinoplasty shapes and sculpts the nose with dermal fillers, providing significant results that typically last 9 to 18 months, which depends on the type of fillers used and the number of injections. With multiple injections, the results of a liquid rhinoplasty can last for up to two years.
What does a liquid rhinoplasty correct?
Liquid rhinoplasty corrects a wide range of cosmetic concerns with the nose. While larger cosmetic issues require a surgical procedure to correct them, quite a number of concerns can be beautifully and effectively addressed with liquid rhinoplasty–resulting in no incisions, trauma, or significant recovery time at all. These include the following cosmetic issues with the nose:
- Hump or flatness of the nasal bridge
- Nasal dents, grooves, or depressions
- Lack of nasal definition
- Issues with the nasal tip
- Issues with past rhinoplasty such as surface irregularity or asymmetry
Which dermal fillers are used during a liquid rhinoplasty?
With a surgical nose job (typically called a rhinoplasty), your results are permanent, but the procedure includes shaving or cutting the bone and cartilage and extensive downtime.
A liquid rhinoplasty is an injectable nose sculpting treatment that uses hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm. These fillers are used to create a refined, attractive nose without incisions, stitches, or long recovery time. With Restylane and Juvederm, Dr. Corrado can fill in depressions, smooth sharper angles, help sculpt the nasal tip, and smooth bumps or humps.
Dr. Corrado uses Restylane and Juvederm fillers to create instant results that appear natural and nuanced. An added benefit of using Restylane and Juvederm is that their effects are reversible, making it possible for patients to experiment with temporary changes.
