3 Solid Reasons to Consider Liquid Rhinoplasty Over Traditional Surgery
- Posted on: Sep 12 2014
Nose-reshaping surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, was one of the most frequently performed surgical cosmetic procedures in 2013. Despite its increasing popularity, men and women who visit us here at the Northcoast Laser Cosmetics for a rhinoplasty consultation are still adamant about the entire procedure. This has mainly to do with rhinoplasty being frequently regarded as the most difficult surgical cosmetic procedure.
Good thing there’s an alternative for individuals who wish to improve the appearance of their nasal profile and contours but are still uncertain about going under the knife. Here at our Mentor laser cosmetic practice, the demand for liquid or non-surgical rhinoplasty has grown for the past year.
By and large, patients choose to have dermal fillers to dramatically improve the appearance of their nose rather than traditional rhinoplasty for the following reasons:
Downtime after liquid rhinoplasty is minimal to non-existent.
Liquid rhinoplasty involves an injection of dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Radiesse. The entire procedure itself lasts for 15 to 30 minutes and the only downtime involved is the appearance of minimal bruising which can be concealed with make-up. In most cases, one can return back to work the next day with non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Liquid rhinoplasty is way more affordable than traditional rhinoplasty.
It is important to note though that the results of liquid rhinoplasty are temporary and the long-term costs of having repeated filler injections may actually be greater in total than traditional surgery.
The results can be easily reversed if you’re not satisfied with it.
Patients who choose hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, and Perlane®. for their non-surgical nose reshaping procedure and are dissatisfied with the results can opt to have it reversed through the injection of an enzyme referred to as hyaluronidase.
