Liquid Rhinoplasty

For patients simply seeking to refine the nose’s appearance, a non-surgical rhinoplasty with dermal fillers may be beneficial.

A liquid rhinoplasty uses injectable fillers like Radiesse® or Juvederm® to strategically add volume to the nose. This may help define and enhance the nasal bridge or the nose tip or smooth out a bump. Many patients complain of poor definition in the bridge area. When viewed in profile, there is poor projection, and from a frontal view, the bridge can seem very wide, making the nose appear flat. In these cases, Dr. Rapaport may recommend liquid rhinoplasty to add volume and definition to the bridge.

Dr. Rapaport invests significant time into the consultation process, as good results are based on clear, detailed communication between doctor and patient. You will first meet with the team in our NYC offices to explore your options and decide if you are a candidate for a liquid rhinoplasty. Once the doctors answer all your questions, they will present you with a customized treatment plan, explaining every step of the way.

Dr. Rapaport will review your medical history, previous rhinoplasties, if any, and any medications you might be taking. He will also do a physical exam, checking for any structural anomalies in the nose. After this evaluation, he will be able to determine your candidacy for the procedure. He will also present you with our vast library of before and after photographs of former patients to show what kind of results you can expect.

Most patients are eligible for a liquid rhinoplasty since dermal fillers are a safe, simple option for almost anyone. Ideal candidates should be overall healthy and have realistic expectations. Patients seeking more dramatic, permanent results may be better suited for surgical rhinoplasty.

In experienced hands, non-surgical rhinoplasty can achieve remarkable results. Dr. Rapaport, a cosmetic surgeon specializing in facial aesthetics, has extensive experience in sculpting and contouring the nose using injectables. His work always aims to create balance and harmony with the other facial features, drawing the gaze to the smile and the eyes rather than the nose itself. Results are sophisticated, natural, and elegant, placing the practice in the top ranks of Manhattan plastic surgeons.

While a surgical rhinoplasty reshapes the bone and cartilage to enhance the nose or restore function, a non-surgical rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers to improve shape and projection. Dr. Rapaport may use one or more types of dermal fillers for this procedure, such as Radiesse®, Restylane®, or Juvederm®. Each of these injectables has its own unique properties that can be strategically applied for the best effect.

Dermal filler injections for liquid rhinoplasty generally take about 20 minutes. Your NYC team will most likely apply topical numbing ointments before injection to diminish discomfort. Once these have taken effect, Dr. Rapaport will make multiple small injections to add subtle volume in strategic areas. We can offer sedation options for patients who are particularly nervous about needles.

This straightforward technique has become the procedure of choice for many patients seeking nasal enhancement. Rather than undergoing a formal surgery with inherent risks, including infection or imperfections requiring revision, liquid rhinoplasty allows you to enhance your appearance with a quick lunch break procedure and no downtime. The results can be easily adjusted and touched up as needed to maintain the look, and hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm® can also be reversed if the patient changes their mind.

Liquid rhinoplasty doesn’t require any downtime and has minimal side effects. Most clients find they can return to normal activities immediately after a non-surgical rhinoplasty. There may be some minor side effects, such as bruising or soreness, but these usually quickly subside and respond well to ice packs. Dr. Rapaport’s precision and expertise also minimize the risk of bruising. 

Our team will give you more detailed recovery instructions in your comprehensive aftercare plan, including when to wear makeup and sunglasses, how much sunblock to apply, and how to sleep properly to ensure your results are well-maintained. You should avoid applying pressure to the injection area for a few days.

The results of a non-surgical nose job are subtle, but they can dramatically improve facial harmony and overall appearance. Dermal fillers create instant volume, so results are immediate. You’ll see the outcome of your liquid rhinoplasty within a week as any minor swelling and bruising fade.

The longevity of these results will depend on which dermal fillers are used. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® last up to 18 months, while Radiesse® lasts approximately one year. Most patients are satisfied with their results for a year or more before requiring another treatment. You can have a liquid rhinoplasty every year or two as needed to maintain your improved look.
