Though it has many names, a rhinoplasty performed through injection and not surgery is very effective when used to either build up a deficiency or hide an eminence (such as a bump), or camouflage nasal asymmetry. If you are considering surgical rhinoplasty, a liquid nose job can be a test drive for your new nose.
Since nasal surgery, specifically corrective nasal surgery, provides no guarantees and in unskilled hands can even worsen a condition, a reversible non surgical rhinoplasty can be a great way to gain the temporary but long-lasting benefits of a nose revision.
The upside is a quick recovery with little or no bruising, predictable benefits, patient input during the procedure, no anesthesia required, and reversibility.
The downside is rare events of vascular compression occlusion which can endanger the skin of the nose and embolism which can damage nose skin or other tissue nearby such as the eyes. Obviously, complications are extremely rare, even more so when performed by the master of aesthetics here at Ordon & Chopra Plastic Surgery.
Fillers that are hyaluronic acid (HA) based can be reversed by injecting with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. So, if you are unhappy with your results or filler finds its way to a place it does not belong or is causing blood flow problems, it can be easily and rapidly dissolved. This is a huge advantage over non-dissolvable fillers.
Our expert injectors can avoid issues in the first place and are much more likely to quickly recognize when the filler is causing a problem and should be dissolved. Also, an expert anticipates things going sideways and has an office stocked with materials, medications, and supplies to address any urgent issues immediately.
The nose is divided into thirds:
Injections in the midline of the nose are the safest, as the blood vessels are smallest there and collateral (backup) circulation is very near-by. Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is most often performed by injecting small amounts of filler to improve the profile. Sometimes the filler needs to be in the “transition zone” between the upper and middle thirds or the middle third and the upper part of the radix (the part of your nose that is between the eyes) to hide a nasal hump. Fillers can also raise the tip of the nose to make it appear less droopy.
The aesthetic masters at Ordon & Chopra create relationships with their patients that last for years. Inching up on perfection with every treatment. It's best to start out with low volume, temporary, and easily dissolvable materials such as Restylane-L or Juvederm Ultra Plus. A little can be added every 3-6 months and at that point, there are some decisions to make.
Another filler, Radiesse provides a much longer (often permanent) correction but is not dissolvable. When an HA and Radiesse are injected mixed, the hybrid injection is partially dissolvable. So our Beverly Hills Liquid Rhinoplasty patients may continue the use of temporary solutions or go for something more permanent at that time.
The best nasal injectors have spent many, many hours working on the nose. Doing nasal surgery further builds a complete understanding of the anatomy and the relationships between the areas of the nose. Such knowledge is vital to achieving the results offered by our specialists at Ordon & Chopra Plastic Surgery.
Furthermore, this procedure requires the seriousness of surgery because rare complications have been seen. It is not ideal for a non-surgical clinician with no nasal surgeon back-up to be doing this in a medical spa. A thorough medical history, patient education, review of dozens of before and after cases, and in-depth consultation is essential. It helps bring in sync what is safe to do with the patients’ expectations.
