Liquid Rhinoplasty and Surgical Rhinoplasty: Understanding the Differences
Surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty are both procedures that can improve the shape of the nose, but they have very different approaches. Non-surgical rhinoplasty relies on dermal fillers to address minor cosmetic irregularities.
Dr. Cangello uses different types of fillers to achieve natural-looking results, including Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Restylane® Lyft, and Voluma. The type of filler used depends on a few factors.
During your consultation Dr. Cangello will discuss the characteristics of the fillers that make each one unique and together both of you will make a decision about which one is most suitable for you.
Liquid rhinoplasty can:
- Smooth the appearance of a crooked dorsum (such as an S-curved nose)
- Reduce the appearance of a dorsal hump or dips in the nose (on profile view)
- Lift a drooping nasal tip
- Give the bridge more height (in someone who has a flat nasal bridge)
- Camouflage irregularities of the nose that are either congenital or caused by previous rhinoplasty or other procedures
While surgical rhinoplasty allows Dr. Cangello to permanently alter the bone, cartilage, and tissue of the nose to improve overall nasal function and aesthetics, liquid rhinoplasty can improve patients’ facial appearance when cosmetic imperfections are mild to moderate. During your consultation, Dr. Cangello can help you understand which procedure will create the results you’re looking for.
Surgical rhinoplasty may be recommended for patients who exhibit any of the following:
- Structural irregularities
- A deviated septum
- A nose that is too wide
- Cosmetic issues that require reducing the size of the nose, changing the size of the nostrils, and building up the actual structure of the bridge
- A dorsal hump. While liquid rhinoplasty can help camouflage the appearance of a dorsal hump, surgical rhinoplasty remains the best and most effective option. However, for people who are truly opposed to surgery, liquid rhinoplasty can still be of benefit.
Ideal Candidates for Liquid Rhinoplasty
Liquid rhinoplasty is completely non-surgical, making it a great option for most people who want to improve their appearance by correcting aesthetic imperfections related to the shape of their nose.
Ideal candidates include patients who:
- Want to address a crooked dorsum, humps or dips in the nose, or a flat bridge
- Don’t feel ready for surgical rhinoplasty
- Want an idea of what a surgical procedure might achieve for them
Non-invasive procedures are a perfect choice for patients who are just starting their cosmetic journey and are not yet ready to commit to surgical treatment. A liquid rhinoplasty with routine touch-ups can help prepare patients for what life would be like with permanent, surgical results. Even if you are not ultimately interested in a traditional rhinoplasty, a non-surgical nose job can be ideal for improving your facial appearance and boosting your confidence. Your treatment is low-risk and provides amazing results, with Dr. Cangello’s help.
Results and Recovery
Patients undergoing a non-surgical rhinoplasty can expect to see immediate results. However, since dermal fillers are not permanent, routine maintenance injections are needed to maintain the effects. Most patients choose schedule repeat sessions every six to 12 months, while others decide to proceed with surgical rhinoplasty after seeing what kind of results they can achieve.
This procedure requires virtually no recovery. It’s common for patients to have mild swelling or redness, but these symptoms resolve on their own within 24 to 48 hours.
