One of the hottest topics in rhinoplasty is the injectable rhinoplasty, also known as nonsurgical rhinoplasty; liquid rhinoplasty; and filler rhinoplasty.
Benefits of Injectable Rhinoplasty
Liquid rhinoplasty has taken off in popularity for a few reasons. Some of the benefits of this procedure include:
- Affordability: Injectable rhinoplasty is done with fillers, so it tends to be cheaper than rhinoplasty.
- Little Downtime: Unlike traditional rhinoplasty with its long recovery period, injectiable rhinoplasty involves little downtime with no time off work required.
- Versatility: Patients with small deformities and irregularities, dorsal humps, and tip changes caused by aging, can all benefit from camouflage and volume with hyaluronic acid fillers.
Risks with Injectable Rhinoplasty
Unfortunately, as with anything, when something is new and everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, there are some mistakes such as fillers being injected too superficially, and fillers like calcium and vicryl being used. This has led to some terrible outcomes, with complete death of the nasal tip skin, irregularities and granulomas.
Thankfully now, more is known about this form of nasal shaping, so results are more predictable and safer. If you’re interested in seeing the kinds of changes you might achieve with a rhinoplasty, without the same price tag or downtime, consider trying out the result without committing to it permanently with a liquid rhinoplasty.
