Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a liquid rhinoplasty or a nose job without surgery, has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its non-invasive nature and the ability to achieve quick results with little to no downtime. However, one common question among those considering this cosmetic procedure is how long the results will last.
In this blog article, we will explore the factors that affect the longevity of non-surgical rhinoplasty and what you can do to ensure your results last as long as possible.
How does non-surgical rhinoplasty work?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of dermal fillers to reshape the nose. During the procedure, a qualified healthcare provider injects hyaluronic acid fillers into specific areas of the nose to correct asymmetry, smooth out bumps or depressions, and refine the nasal tip. The fillers work by adding volume and contour to the nose, which can create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which involves surgery and significant downtime, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in as little as 15-30 minutes with no need for general anesthesia. The results are immediate, and patients can return to their normal activities right after the procedure. However, it is essential to note that non-surgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent solution and requires periodic touch-ups to maintain the desired results.
How long does non-surgical rhinoplasty last?
The longevity of non-surgical rhinoplasty depends on several factors, such as:
- Type of filler used
- Amount of filler injected
- Patient’s individual metabolism
Generally, non-surgical rhinoplasty results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, with most patients experiencing results lasting around 1 year. However, the duration of the results may vary from person to person.
It is important to note that non-surgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent solution, and if a patient desires a long-lasting change, they may need to consider surgical rhinoplasty.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty aftercare
To ensure long-lasting results after a non-surgical rhinoplasty, patients can take several steps to care for their nose and maintain the effects of the dermal fillers. First and foremost, it is essential to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the healthcare provider, which may include avoiding strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and certain skincare products for a specific period after the procedure.
Patients should also avoid sleeping on their stomach or side, which can put pressure on the nose and affect the distribution of the fillers. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise can also help to promote the longevity of the fillers. Lastly, periodic touch-up appointments with the healthcare provider can help to ensure that the results are maintained and any necessary adjustments are made.
While non-surgical rhinoplasty is a temporary solution, taking care of the nose after the procedure can help to prolong the effects and achieve the desired results for an extended period.
