Who makes a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, used to be the only way you could reshape your nose. While this common surgical procedure does have many different benefits, not every patient wants to permanently change the shape of their nose.
Luckily, surgeons have found other ways to make noses straighter and smaller. Through new medical technology, it’s possible to improve your nose contour with non-surgical rhinoplasty.
This type of treatment is simple, effective, and great for anyone that wants to avoid major invasive surgery. Liquid rhinoplasty is a painless and quick process. Your doctor simply injects your nose with dermal filler to create a better shape or smooth out other irregularities.
You might be wondering who makes a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty, though. We’ll answer this question so you can decide whether this is the right cosmetic option for you.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
As long as you are in good health and have the desire to alter the shape of your nose, you should be an ideal candidate for liquid rhinoplasty. Of course, not every patient will be suited for this procedure, especially if you want to make bigger changes.
Liquid rhinoplasty does create amazing results, but there is a limit to what you can do without directly changing the structures of the nose through surgical techniques. So, in this section of the post, we’ll discuss what makes someone ideal for non-surgical rhinoplasty.
People best suited for a liquid rhinoplasty include:
1. Patients Who Want to Avoid Major Surgery
If you want to avoid major surgery, you are the right candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Surgical rhinoplasty does create drastic results that can completely change the shape of your nose for the better.
But, as we mentioned before, some patients aren’t interested in undergoing invasive procedures. Not only are you altering a major part of your face, but there are a few downsides to traditional rhinoplasty.
Primarily, you must plan around surgery and make time for a lengthy recovery process. There can also be a lot of pain, major swelling, and even potential scarring.
With the right surgeon, rhinoplasty can be a great option. Still, if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of an invasive operation, then you might be a better candidate for a more simple liquid rhinoplasty procedure.
Instead of creating an incision, doctors gently inject dermal fillers directly into the nose. A trained medical professional can treat simple aesthetic problems with a few injections.
This includes bumps, unevenness, dents, and other smaller issues. By increasing the volume of the nose, the fillers smooth and correct your nose bridge, tip, and nostrils.
As a result, patients will have a more symmetrical nose that suits their face and beauty standards. Best of all, the process is short and painless. Within a quick 15 to 30 minutes, patients can get this procedure and leave.
You can even go back to school or work after getting a liquid rhinoplasty. With a major surgery, this simply isn’t possible.
2. Patients Without Certain Allergies
A lot of patients will be well suited to a non-surgical nose job. This procedure causes fewer medical complications and is less risky overall.
But there are still some minor risks involved. In particular, some individuals could have an allergic reaction to the dermal fillers used in non-surgical rhinoplasty.
This is why it’s so important to have a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon beforehand. You can go over your options in detail and discuss whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.
When you talk to Dr. Edney, he will go over the ingredients used in the dermal fillers. A majority of people won’t be allergic to popular dermal fillers. But it’s better to be on the safe side and meet with your doctor before getting anything done.
3. Patients Who Want to Make Minor Alterations to Their Nose
Good candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty should have realistic expectations. While liquid rhinoplasty does change the shape of your nose, it doesn’t create the same effect as permanent surgery.
Dermal fillers can’t fix noses that have been severely damaged by blunt force trauma. In addition, if your nose is extremely crooked or misshapen, surgery might be a better choice.
Patients with a deviated septum and breathing problems won’t see benefits from non-surgical rhinoplasty either. Again, those who want to correct minor humps, bumps, drooping, or unevenness will be the best candidates for this less invasive treatment.
Overall, the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are less obvious and may appear more natural. So, this can also be ideal for people that don’t want others to know they’ve had a cosmetic treatment.
4. Patients Who Want to Cut Down on Recovery Time
Since liquid rhinoplasty is a non-invasive procedure, the recovery time will be reduced. Other than some minor swelling and redness, there aren’t many side effects.
Because of this, most people can go right back to work and their other responsibilities after their procedure. You still have to be careful and avoid heavy workouts and strenuous activities the first couple of days, but for most patients, the recovery time is quick and painless.
In other words, those who don’t want to wait weeks to finish recovering will be great candidates for liquid rhinoplasty.
5. Patients Who Are Looking For More Immediate Results
With a traditional nose job, patients have to wait for their nose to fully heal before they see results. This can take weeks or even months depending on how fast your body heals.
With non-surgical rhinoplasty, you don’t have to wait nearly as long. In fact, you can begin seeing the results of your treatment after the filler is injected.
You’ll have to wait for your dermal fillers to fully settle into the nose, but this doesn’t take nearly as long as surgery. Patients typically see results within one to two weeks at most.
Liquid rhinoplasty doesn’t guarantee permanent changes to the shape of your nose. However, your nose will stay enhanced for up to twelve months. Additional treatments can also help you upkeep your results!
