Liquid Rhinoplasty in East Greenwich, RI

We all know that the nose is the central part of the face and small changes to it can make huge differences in your appearance. A rhinoplasty, or nasal reshaping surgery, is among the top five most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States year after year. It is not surprising then, that the demand for liquid rhinoplasty has also boomed in recent years.

While a rhinoplasty is really the gold standard when it comes to nasal reshaping and provides long-lasting results, it may not be for everyone. Oftentimes, the cost and the downtime can be deterrents for patients, not to mention just the fear and anxiety that comes along with any surgery and, especially surgery of the face. But rest assured, if you are unhappy with the shape of your nose, and you fit in the category above, we've got another option that might work perfectly for you!

Nonsurgical approach to rhinoplasty

A liquid rhinoplasty, or nonsurgical rhinoplasty, is the injection of dermal fillers into the nose to alter its shape. It's a great option for patients that have isolated deformities of their nose, such as a dorsal hump or minor asymmetries.

It can also be a great option for those patients that have had a rhinoplasty in the past and have minor irregularities postoperatively. These patients, however, require more expertise and care in their injections as the blood supply has already been altered following surgery and the risks of complications can be higher.

A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is also a great option for those that want instant results, may not be able to afford a surgical rhinoplasty, and cannot take a significant time off of work.

Finally, patients may also undergo a liquid rhinoplasty to "test out" whether they want to take the plunge and get more definite surgery. The results are temporary and you can essentially take your rhinoplasty out for a "test-drive."

Using dermal fillers for rhinoplasty

It is also important to remember that during this procedure, we are injecting filler, so we are adding volume. This technique by default will augment the nose, so it not a good option for those patients that already have large noses and need a reduction. While there are different tricks we can use to create the illusion of a smaller nose, the nose will be bigger objectively, regardless.

The most vital thing to remember is that there are risks associated with this procedure. The nose has a complicated blood supply that essentially creates an arcade of small arteries and veins that connect ultimately with the eyes. Not to scare anyone, but if injected by someone that does not have a thorough understanding of this anatomy, not only can this result in complications of vascular compromise, skin necrosis and infections, but blindness can also develop.

With a detailed knowledge of the anatomy and safety maneuvers, liquid rhinoplasty is a safe procedure. If you have toyed with the idea of this, consult with our board-certified plastic surgeon to see if you are a good candidate.

Liquid Rhinoplasty vs Traditional Surgery

Both liquid rhinoplasty and traditional rhinoplasty share the goal of improving the appearance of the nose. However, the two procedures achieve this goal in different ways. Traditional rhinoplasty involves surgical intervention to alter the structure of the nose. It can be performed using an open or closed surgical technique, depending on the desired results. While surgical rhinoplasty remains a valuable option for some patients, liquid rhinoplasty offers a non-invasive alternative with several key advantages:

Results without surgery: Liquid rhinoplasty involves the use of dermal fillers to reshape and contour the nose, avoiding the need for incisions and anesthesia associated with traditional surgery.

Minimal downtime: Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which may require significant downtime for recovery, liquid rhinoplasty typically allows patients to resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.

Reversible results: Dermal fillers used in liquid rhinoplasty are temporary, providing patients with the flexibility to adjust and refine their results over time.

Types of Dermal Filler Used

At CentreFARS, we utilize safe and effective dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid-based products to sculpt and refine the nasal profile. These fillers offer natural-looking results that can address concerns such as:

Dorsal hump reduction: Smoothing out bumps on the bridge of the nose.

Nasal bridge augmentation: Adding volume to create a more defined bridge.

Tip refinement: Enhancing the shape and projection of the nasal tip.

Dr. Doyle customizes each treatment to address the unique anatomical features and aesthetic goals of our patients, ensuring personalized and natural-looking results.

Combining Liquid Rhinoplasty with Other Treatments

Dr. Doyle understands that patients who are interested in liquid rhinoplasty may also have other cosmetic concerns or goals. Dr. Doyle works with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan to help them reach their ultimate aesthetic goals. In many cases, patients may benefit from combining liquid rhinoplasty with complementary treatments to achieve comprehensive facial harmony. At CentreFARS, we offer a range of non-surgical procedures, including:

Dermal fillers: Fillers can be used on various area. Many patients opt to enhance cheek volume and jawline definition for a balanced facial profile.

Botox and Dysport: Wrinkles and fine lines can detract from your appearance; however, these bothersome signs of aging can be quickly improved with treatments such as Botox and Dysport, which are excellent choices for rejuvenating the overall appearance.

Fat transfer to face: Facial fat transfer may be beneficial to patients who are interested in achieving natural looking volume and lasting results while eliminating unwanted fat from various areas around the body. 

Lip flip: Through the strategic injection of a small amount of a neuromodulator along the upper lip border and Cupid’s bow, it is possible to create a subtle enhancement to the lips. 

By combining these treatments, Dr. Doyle tailors a holistic approach to facial enhancement that complements the results of liquid rhinoplasty, providing patients with a comprehensive outcome.

How Long Does a Liquid Rhinoplasty Take?

Liquid rhinoplasties can be performed in 60 minutes or less. Dr. Doyle’s expertise in liquid rhinoplasties allows her to inject dermal fillers to augment the shape of your nose without disrupting your entire day. In addition to being performed on your lunch hour, another top benefit of a liquid rhinoplasty is that there is little to no downtime after the procedure. Aside from avoiding strenuous exercise immediately afterward, you can resume all of your normal activities.

Can a Liquid Rhinoplasty Affect Your Sleep?

No, having a liquid rhinoplasty will not affect your sleep. The dermal fillers are injected into the superficial layers of skin, not inside your nasal cavity, so there should not be residual irritation or swelling. If you do develop problems breathing through your nose, reach out to Dr. Doyle for further evaluation.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The results from a liquid rhinoplasty can last between six months to a year. It depends on which type of filler was to augment your nose and whether you choose to have maintenance appointments as well. Dr. Doyle will discuss all of your options as well as how to extend the results of your liquid rhinoplasty in consultation.

Recovery After Liquid Rhinoplasty

Most patients can resume normal activity immediately after the procedure. However, it is not uncommon to have slight swelling and redness of the nose. This, combined with possible bruising, will subside quickly.
