Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty San Diego
There is an alternative to undergoing a traditional rhinoplasty using injections instead of a scalpel. A non-surgical rhinoplasty or liquid nose job is a quick office procedure for patients who are not interested in the surgical option for changing the appearance of their nose.
What is a Liquid Nose Job?
The non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the use of a dermal filler such as Juvederm or Juvederm Voluma. These fillers can be used to build up a flat nasal bridge, make a slightly crooked nose appear straighter, reduce the perception of a dorsal hump, or create better symmetry in a nose with minor contour irregularities. Because filler injections augment areas of the nose, it cannot be used or expected to narrow the nose or create more definition or refinement in the tip of the nose. If this is your goal, then a traditional surgical rhinoplasty should be considered and discussed with Dr. Park.
There are several advantages of the non-surgical rhinoplasty. It does not require a trip to the operating room. The injections are performed in as little as 15 minutes. You will see your results instantly. There is no down time, and little to no bruising. The results can last 6-12 months depending on the type of filler that you choose. Newer fillers on the market may last 2 years or more. Because the results are temporary, you can decide to continue the injections to maintain your new look, pursue a permanent solution through a surgical rhinoplasty, or restore your original appearance by allowing the fillers to resorb over time.
