Change the Look of Your Nose Without Surgery

Are you curious about rhinoplasty but unsure if you’re ready for the commitment and recovery of the traditional nose job? You’re not alone. Fortunately, there’s a non-surgical, temporary method to alter the appearance of your nose with dermal fillers called liquid rhinoplasty.

At Skin Shop medSpa in Houston, Texas, it’s our highest priority that our patients feel confident, excited, and comfortable about their treatments. That’s why we recommend liquid rhinoplasty for people not ready for a surgical nose job.

How does liquid rhinoplasty work?

Non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty involves using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring moisturizing factor in our skin that can be used topically and in dermal fillers to increase hydration levels in every layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains water, plumping the skin and adding volume to desired facial areas.

During a liquid nose job, we’ll carefully inject dermal fillers using a small needle into specific areas of your nose to address concerns like bumps, asymmetry, or drooping. The results are more subtle and natural looking compared to a surgical rhinoplasty. 

While we are adding material to the nose instead of taking it away like surgeons often do during traditional rhinoplasty, we can also analyze your facial angles and proportions to make your nose appear smaller too.

Advantages of liquid rhinoplasty

There are a few key advantages of liquid rhinoplasty over surgical rhinoplasty. The first is the price. In fact, you’ll save money by opting for liquid rhinoplasty over surgery. 

Liquid rhinoplasty is also an excellent option for people who don’t want to commit to a full and permanent rhinoplasty. When using hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers, liquid rhinoplasty lasts up to 6-12 months, allowing you to test a new look before making irreversible changes.

The visual change takes effect immediately, unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which can take up to a year to reflect the final results once the swelling resolves. This long wait can be frustrating as one waits to see if they’ll be satisfied with the significant change they’ve undergone.

What to expect from the procedure

The procedure is quick, usually taking 15-30 minutes, and involves minimal discomfort. You'll see immediate results, and little to no downtime is required. 

If you are looking for more long-term results, you will have to undergo regular liquid rhinoplasties every year or so. However, liquid rhinoplasty is a great way to figure out your preferences, be that recurring liquid rhinoplasty, eventual surgical rhinoplasty, or embracing the nose you were born with.

Whatever you decide, our team at Skin Shop medSpa is here to support you. To learn more about if a liquid nose job might be a good fit for you, contact us here to schedule a consultation at our Houston, Texas, office.
