Trend Alert: Liquid Rhinoplasty (the non-permanent solution to a nose job)

The Kodak moments of the 1980s have evolved from photographs during holidays, family gatherings, and rare milestones to a selfie-obsessed culture in which every moment is being captured in pictures. Film has been replaced by digital photographs, which we enhance our appearance pixel by pixel. Living in the era of selfies, men and women alike want to look their best twenty-four/seven. Makeup techniques can slightly alter the appearance of our noses. However, the time and effort required doesn’t always achieve the desired effect. Unfortunately, nose jobs were not traditionally an option for most people due to the cost of the surgery. Innovations in medical technology has changed the ease and accessibility of making a change to your facial features.

It is no surprise that cosmetic surgery produces better results than makeup. Likewise, rhinoplasty is a permanent solution. For patients desiring a low-cost, low-commitment change to their appearance, options were limited. Enter the genius solution: a non-permanent nose job. Medical technology has led to advances in plastic surgery to deliver the desired results with a short-term commitment and less financial expense. The liquid nose job is a new solution in cosmetic surgery. After hearing about Dr. Finical’s appearance on Good Day, many patients contacted the Charlotte Plastic Surgery asking, “what is a liquid nose job?”

What is a liquid rhinoplasty?

 

Liquid rhinoplasty, also known as a liquid nose job, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure to change the look of one’s nose. This is a new cosmetic procedure that has been perfected over the past decade. In its growing popularity, many men and women are turning to a source they trust to learn more about this cosmetic procedure. Residents of the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area call on Dr. Finical to separate the myth from the facts about liquid nose jobs.  Dr. Finical of Charlotte Plastic Surgery is a board-certified plastic surgeon. He is a member of The Rhinoplasty Society, an organization consisting of top surgeons throughout the world who specialize in noses, and who has appeared on nationally broadcast news programs as an expert in rhinoplasty and the innovative nose job with fillers. 

As Dr. Finical discussed on FOX46 Good Day Charlotte and WBTV, a liquid nose job is an innovative cosmetic procedure that relies on injectable fillers to alter the shape and appearance of the patient’s nose. The liquid nose job changes the contour of the bridge of the nose. The procedure is a quick, non-invasive procedure that eliminates the need for surgery, sutures or anesthesia. 

The Results: Liquid Nose Job Before and After

 

Before your liquid nose job, you might notice your face doesn’t appear perfectly symmetrical. This tends to be most obvious in photographs, more so than in person or looking in the mirror. Typically, the asymmetrical, unbalanced profile is a result of the placement and shape of the dorsal hump bridge of your nose. Liquid nose jobs rely on fillers to be injected into the bridge of your nose to smooth the look of it. 

 

Are You an Ideal Candidate for a Liquid Nose Lift?

 

Liquid rhinoplasty is ideal for a patient looking for a quick, temporary, change to their appearance. Liquid nose jobs are perfect for a quick refresh for a special event, such as a wedding or reunion, or any time. With results lasting anywhere from 12 to 18 months, these are convenient, in-house procedures that require very little time. Likewise, the temporary rhinoplasty is a very affordable option for most patients as compared to a surgical rhinoplasty.

Liquid nose job is a good procedure to augment a flat nasal bridge. Likewise, a good candidate for a liquid nose job is the patient looking to reduce the appearance of the hump on the bridge of the nose. Liquid rhinoplasty will not reduce the size of the nose; however, it will reduce or eliminate depressions, dents or grooves. Liquid nose fillers may instantly improve symmetry, raise and define a flat bridge. Finally, an ideal candidate for liquid rhinoplasty is the person whose appearance needs a correction to the surface of the nose, bridge, or nasal tip as a result of a previous surgical rhinoplasty.
