Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-Surgical Nose Job in Farmington & Hartford, CT

In many cases, surgical rhinoplasty is the gold-standard for aesthetic nasal correction, but for one reason or another, there are times when surgery isn’t possible or preferred by patients. In these cases, a non-surgical rhinoplasty using injectable dermal fillers can change the shape of the nose and is also referred to as liquid rhinoplasty.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job), is rapidly growing in popularity, but if you’re considering the treatment, make sure you do your homework first. Although the treatment itself takes only a few minutes, it is delicate and complex. A skilled injector with a deep understanding of nasal anatomy is essential for beautiful aesthetic results and a safe procedure.

Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery offers liquid rhinoplasty in Farmington and Hartford County, CT. All injectable treatments at our offices are performed by our surgeons, never non-physician staff. Call us to learn more!

Non-Surgical Nose Job at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery

Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses injectable dermal fillers to add volume and change the shape of the nose. This procedure can fill depressions on the bridge of the nose and can harmonize the size and shape of the nasal tip and bridge. Our goal with this procedure is to refine the nose’s appearance and bring the facial features into balance.

The non-surgical nose job itself looks much like any injectable filler treatment. We start with a consultation where our board-certified surgeons discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure. We review medical history to make sure that the treatment is a safe choice. If you decide to go forward with the procedure, we’ll create a treatment plan together, choosing fillers and planning out injection locations.

When it is time for the treatment to begin, we apply a topical numbing cream to the nose. Then a series of small injections are made into the nose until the desired shape is achieved. After treatment, patients can return to work, school, or other activities without downtime.

At Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, all our injectable treatments, including non-surgical rhinoplasty, are performed by our highly trained and experienced doctors.

After years of dealing with congestion I finally made an appointment with Dr. Seeley in May. He was kind, friendly and knowledgeable from the minute I met him. In September Dr. Seeley and his team preformed the balloon sinuplasty procedure on me, which has been successful! Even though I struggled a bit with the procedure, they were so gentle and kind throughout. Follow ups have been great and quick and the whole team is friendly and nice. I actually enjoy coming in to my appointments! Thank you Dr. Seeley and team!!

My experience going to see Dr. Brook Seeley and getting a procedure was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had! From his staff at the desk, to Kim the coordinator, all the way up to Dr. Seelwy himself, I had a great experience even though I was so nervous and not knowing what to expect. He was so beyond professional, kind, friendly, and took all the time in the world to explain everything step by step, answering each and every one of my questions, and not pushing me to get the procedure or any of that fluff that other doctors do. It was an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Seeley.

Choosing Between Surgical Rhinoplasty and a Liquid Nose Job

Fillers do have their limitations, and a non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot rival the results of a surgical procedure. Dermal fillers cannot remove tissue from the nose or reduce its size. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is solely an aesthetic procedure and does not address breathing difficulties, septal deviation, or airway blockages. Dermal fillers are also metabolized by the body over time, so the results from the procedure will only last temporarily.

Although the results are limited in scope, for the right patient, this procedure can be transformative. It helps patients delay surgery or test-drive a new look before committing to surgery.

Is a Liquid Rhinoplasty Right for You?

With a non-surgical procedure, it is easy to forget about potential risks. We want our patients to make informed decisions about procedures, with the necessary knowledge about potential risks and benefits. Before performing any non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment, we carefully discuss the details of this procedure.

If filler obstructs one of the many blood vessels in the nose, serious complications can arise including tissue death. These risks are significantly reduced when performed by an experienced, qualified provider. The injector must take care to place filler injections, so they will not obstruct critical blood supply channels.

Your choice of provider is essential for a safe and effective non-surgical nose job. At Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, our team of doctors performs all injectable treatments themselves.

Risks and Side Effects

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, while less invasive than surgical options, carries its own set of potential risks and side effects. Common side effects include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness at the injection sites

These typically resolve within a few days to a week. More serious risks, though rare, can include infection, allergic reactions to the filler material, and, in very rare cases, vascular complications such as skin necrosis or blindness if the filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel.

It’s crucial to have this procedure performed by a skilled and experienced practitioner to minimize these risks hence why our board-certified plastic surgeons perform the procedure.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty is someone looking to make minor adjustments to the appearance of their nose without the downtime, risks, and permanence of surgical rhinoplasty. This might include individuals seeking to:

  • Smooth out small bumps on the nose.
  • Correct minor asymmetry.
  • Refine the nasal tip.
  • Add volume to specific areas of the nose.

Candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure, and understand that the results are temporary, typically lasting from 6 to 18 months.

Frequently Asked Questions About Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Come in for a consultation and get answers to all your questions about liquid rhinoplasty. We’re sharing answers to common questions about the procedure below:

The results are temporary. They typically last a year or more, depending on the fillers used and the body’s response to treatment. Patients who love their look after treatment can maintain it with regular dermal filler injections. Many patients eventually choose surgical rhinoplasty for a permanent result.

Non-surgical nose job is well-tolerated. To increase comfort, we use a numbing cream on the nose before the injections. Many of the dermal fillers we use contain lidocaine, a topical anesthetic. Any tenderness from the treatment should resolve quickly, often in just a day or two.

The duration of the results can vary depending on the type of filler used but generally lasts from 6 to 18 months. After this period, the filler is naturally absorbed by the body, and the nose returns to its original shape unless further treatments are administered.

Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. Topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area to reduce any pain, and many dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, to further minimize discomfort.

No, the procedure is purely cosmetic and does not address any functional issues within the nose, such as breathing difficulties or internal structural problems. Patients with functional concerns may need to consider surgical options.

One of the benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty is the minimal downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s recommended to avoid strenuous activities for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.
