Expert Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty (Liquid Rhinoplasty) in Orange County
The nose is an important feature that provides balance, softness, and attractiveness to the face. Imperfections of the nose have a tendency to attract attention to the nose and take away from the overall harmony of the face. For this reason, many patients seek out a rhinoplasty procedure.
However,some patients may not be ready for a definitive rhinoplasty surgery. Whether it is recovery time, cost, health issues, or any number of reasons, not all patients are able to undergo a rhinoplasty surgery.
Overview of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
A non-surgical rhinoplasty can be an appealing alternative for many patients who suffer from cosmetic irregularities of the nose. Unlike a traditional rhinoplasty, which permanently changes the underlying structure of the nose, a nonsurgical rhinoplasty uses temporary facial fillers to precisely sculpt the nose for the desired changes.
In the carefully selected patient Dr. Jacob Boeckmann can correct a number of issues including:
- Sculpt a more refined tip
- Increase the height of the bridge (dorsum)
- Straighten the bridge (crooked nose)
- Correct a dorsal hump (bump) with the addition of volume
- Improve prior rhinoplasty flaws
- Fill depressions on the surface
What is the procedure like?
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed in-office with relatively no downtime. A numbing cream is applied to the nose for approximately 20 minutes before the procedure. The skin of the nose is then cleaned and the filler is injected into the areas needing addressing. Discomfort is minimal during the treatment. There is always a small risk of bruising, swelling, and temporary redness following the procedure. However, most patients are able to return back to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Dr. Boeckmann uses hyaluronic acid fillers (e.g. Juvederm, Restylane) to perform non-surgical rhinoplasty. Each of these fillers mimics your body’s collagen and creates a natural look. On average, dermal fillers last between 9 months and 1 year and are slowly broken down by the body through natural biochemical processes. As the filler is broken down the nose slowly returns back to its original size and shape.
