LIQUID RHINOPLASTY (NON-SURGICAL NASAL RESHAPING)
The central position of the nose means that even subtle changes can have a dramatic effect on your facial aesthetics. Many patients desire to improve the shape, symmetry, and proportions of their nose but do not have the time for the post-operative recovery period necessitated by a traditional rhinoplasty (surgical nasal reshaping). Fortunately, the field of non-invasive aesthetic medicine has advanced significantly, and the non-surgical procedure known as a “liquid rhinoplasty” allows patients to achieve significant nasal improvements without any scalpels, anesthesia, or downtime!
Also referred to as an injection rhinoplasty or “10 minute nose job”, liquid nose correction is a non-invasive technique that employs the use of injectable dermal fillers to enhance the nasal contours, restoring volume to depleted areas to improve the symmetry not just of the nose, but of the entire face. A liquid rhinoplasty is not an ideal choice for patients seeking to correct malformations of nasal bones, or for patients who suffer from breathing problems linked to obstructed nasal airways (i.e. deviated septum); however, there are a number of cosmetic nasal issues that can be corrected with a few carefully placed dermal filler injections, such as:
- Nasal asymmetry
- Downward pointing nose and/or drooping nasal tip
- Bumps and humps on the nasal bridge
- Broad/overly wide nasal bridge
If you have been considering undergoing traditional rhinoplasty surgery, but felt a bit anxious about undergoing this type of invasive procedure, liquid rhinoplasty can also provide a low-risk, temporary “preview” of what your potential rhinoplasty surgery results will look like, which can help to assuage your fears and allow you to feel confident and relaxed should to choose to move forward with your nasal reshaping surgery.
If your liquid rhinoplasty is performed by a practitioner without the necessary surgical and non-surgical nasal reshaping expertise, you will not be able to achieve the lasting, subtle, beautiful enhancements you are looking for. At the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, with offices in Beverly Hills, Valencia, and Santa Clarita, California, world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. D. David Saadat is one of an elite subset of plastic surgeons to hold not one, but three board certifications in:
- Sleep Medicine
- Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
- Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgery),
Dr. Saadat will take the time to perform a detailed patient consultation, listening carefully to what you hope to achieve from your liquid rhinoplasty procedure. He will integrate this information into your custom-tailored treatment plan, which will be carefully designed to ensure that your aesthetic concerns are resolved and your natural facial beauty is accentuated.
LIQUID NOSE CORRECTION PROCEDURE
Dr. Saadat is a true nasal reshaping expert, and he performs each procedure with the ultimate goal of ensuring that any modifications to the nasal structure will blend harmoniously and naturally with the rest of the facial features, improving the symmetrical balance and proportions of the face. Your liquid rhinoplasty procedure will be performed in the comfort of our office and will take only 10-15 minutes.
Prior to your non-surgical nasal reshaping service, Dr. Saadat will apply a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. He will then inject a meticulously customized combination of advanced dermal fillers to fill in depressions, smooth out bumps, contour sharp angles, and (if necessary) modify the angle of your nasal tip. No sedation will be required for this service, and you will be able to return to your busy schedule immediately after your treatment.
Although there are a variety of dermal fillers to choose from, in Dr. Saadat’s vast experience performing this technique, he has found that Radiesse® is the injectable filler that is best suited to achieve optimal nasal reshaping results, due to its unique chemical makeup and filler properties:
- Radiesse® is comprised of a biocompatible and completely biodegradable protein compound found naturally in the body—this means that the filler will not be rejected by the body and does not require pre-treatment allergy or immune system testing
- The long-terms effects of Radiesse® far surpass other fillers when injected into the nose vs. other areas of the face
- Formulated to boost collagen production, Radiesse® has been proven to produce youthfully smooth, rejuvenated skin on and adjacent to the nasal structure
Although Radiesse® is typically Dr. Saadat’s top filler choice when performing liquid rhinoplasties, if he feels that patients may benefit from alternative dermal fillers (i.e. Restylane®, Perlane®, Sculptra®, and Juvederm XC®), he may elect to utilize one or more of these fillers to supplement or replace Radiesse® when appropriate.
Your liquid rhinoplasty results can last between six months to several years, depending upon the exact combination of fillers utilized, and how quickly your body metabolizes the injectables. Potential post-treatment side effects are rare, very mild, and affect only a small percentage of patients, but may include temporary swelling or bruising at the injection sites.
Many of Dr. Saadat’s liquid rhinoplasty patients successfully achieve their nasal reshaping goals and continue to maintain their results with periodic, follow-up maintenance filler treatments, while others elect to undergo a long-term nasal reshaping solution with a surgical rhinoplasty procedure performed by Dr. Saadat—the true rhinoplasty expert of Beverly Hills.
