Non-Surgical Nose Job, commonly referred to as a Liquid Rhinoplasty, is an effective way to enhance the shape of the nose without having a traditional rhinoplasty. This procedure involves use of injectable fillers such as Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft to alter the contours of the nose for a more balanced appearance. While certain conditions are best treated with surgical rhinoplasty, Liquid Rhinoplasty can help improve the shape of the nose using minimally invasive techniques.
LIQUID RHINOPLASTY FOR TEENS:
Non-surgical enhancement of the nose is a great way for someone considering rhinoplasty surgery to try out the look of nasal enhancements before actually having surgery. This is particularly helpful when treating young teens whose facial skeleton is still growing, and it may be too early in development for them to undergo surgical rhinoplasty.
LIQUID RHINOPLASTY FOR ETHNIC NOSE:
The noses of people of different ethnicity often have unique characteristics. Dr. Weiss strives to create balance and harmony with the rest of the face while respecting and preserving the patient’s ethnicity. Being mindful of the various aesthetic needs and preferences of African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and other non-Caucasians, Dr. Weiss is able to achieve optimal liquid rhinoplasty results with fillers such as restylane for patients of various ethnicities.
While individuals vary dramatically, there are particular characteristics that are most common to the different ethnicities and can make nose jobs more challenging. The following characteristics must be taken into account in order to achieve a patient’s goals:
- General shape of the nose
- Thick nasal skin
- Weak tip cartilages
- High or low nasal bridge
- Bridge of the nose
- Wide appearance or broad base
- Raising a drooping tip
NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS
Liquid Rhinoplasty for African Americans is most frequently performed to create the appearance of a stronger nasal bridge. Injectable fillers are also used to create a longer, more narrow appearing nose. Some patients are also treated to elevate the tip of the nose when the a droopy tip is present. The issues that usually affect African American noses are unique to each individual, and Dr. Weiss is able to make the desired changes to enhance appearances without erasing the ethnic identity of the individual.
LIQUID RHINOPLASTY FOR THE EAST ASIAN NOSE:
Injectable fillers are very good at building a bridge and creating a longer appearance to the nose for many patients of Asian descent who desire not to have a surgical nose job. Those who have very low and wide nasal bridges can benefit from the placement of filler over the nasal bones and cartilage to enhance this area. The asian nose is quite different from Western noses, meaning that non-surgical rhinoplasty requires attention to detail and special skill to inject filler and achieve natural appearing results.
CORRECTIVE INJECTIONS AFTER PRIMARY RHINOPLASTY SURGERY:
Injectable fillers are frequently used to complement or enhance the results of surgical procedures. Non-surgical injections are performed to fill and smooth minor imperfections when revision rhinoplasty surgery may be considered, but not ideal.
It is important to trust a Facial Specialist with the expertise and skills needed to perform this intricate procedure. Dr. Weiss performs revision rhinoplasty and non-surgical revision rhinoplasty frequently on patients who are not happy with the results of previous surgery. Liquid rhinoplasty is ideal for patients who have had excessive reduction of the nasal bridge above the tip of the nose, a crooked nose, a bump on the bridge, or bony irregularities present after primary rhinoplasty.
