Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty | Cost & Recovery

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a quick and cost-effective procedure; it does not involve any surgical cutting, but there are risks involved.  The results of a non surgical nose job are also not permanent. In addition, it may not be a viable option for everyone. People expecting major changes to their nose or wanting to achieve a smaller nose may not get the results from this procedure. If you are thinking about improving your nose it is better to find out about Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty, What to Expect, Cost, and Recovery in Dubai.

What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is more commonly known as a “liquid nose job” or a “15-minute nose job”. It is a cosmetic procedure that involves derma fillers and is usually performed by a plastic surgeon. It can modify the shape of your nose for anywhere from 6 months to one year.

Topical anesthesia in the form of a numbing cream or ointment is applied to the skin. The injected liquid settles into the skin and holds its shape, altering the shape of your nose. The whole procedure can take from 15 to 45 minutes.

This procedure may be the best option for you if you want to even out minor bumps or imperfections on your nose, lift the nose, add volume, or lift the tip of your nose. Minor imperfections and bumps can be camouflaged. However, if you want a reduced nose or you are looking to smooth out a more protruding bump, this may not be the option.

What to Expect During and After Treatment?

The nose is quite sensitive and is filled with many small vessels which are also close to the eyes. For this reason, liquid rhinoplasty is a little more intricate than other injectable fillers. If an unlicensed and untrained plastic surgeon performs the procedure, it might result in complications.

The surgeon may inject the liquid into different areas around your nose depending on the changes you are expecting. The injection site may be above or below the hump/ bump to improve the angle of the nose, around the tip, or above the cartilage of the nose. A slight pinching or pressure sensation may be experienced during the procedure.

Recovery:

Immediately after the procedure nose may appear slightly larger and some patients may not feel any difference in the shape of their nose. After the procedure, you may see swelling and redness or feel some pain where the injection pierced the skin.  The redness decreases in two to three hours.
