Some perceived irregularities and imperfections of the nose can be addressed by a minimally invasive procedure that avoids the risks associated with traditional, surgical rhinoplasty.
In non-surgical rhinoplasty, or liquid rhinoplasty, dermal fillers are injected into the nose to temporarily alter its shape or even out irregularities. The solution most typically used is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in our bodies.
The treatment is a temporary solution that is best used to address small irregularities, such as bumps on the bridge of the nose, or asymmetrical and crooked noses. The hyaluronic acid fillers can make the nose appear straighter or define its shape, but they cannot address functional issues or make the nose smaller.
The results can be visible within a few days and can last up to a year. Some bruising, swelling and redness may occur, but they typically disappear in a few days.
