Who would you trust to do a Liquid Nose Job (AKA Non-surgical rhinoplasty) on you?
Is a non-surgical nose job safe?
We are bombarded these days with beauty-enhancing filler treatments, but are they safe? A non-surgical rhinoplasty or ‘liquid nose job’ is potentially one of the most risky treatments you can undergo so making sure the person doing it has the knowledge and skills to keep you safe is essential.
What can go wrong with a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Well…..unfortunately some pretty serious stuff. The product used is usually hyaluronic acid filler, a clear gel which can be formulated into different viscosities or ‘thickness’ from a runny gel to a fairly firm consistency. The gel can be incorrectly injected into a blood vessel, or be deposited close to the vessel effectively blocking it so blood no longer flows to the tissues. This is particularly catastrophic in the bridge of the nose area because of the blood supply to the retina of the eye. Stopping blood flow here will cause blindness, and it may be permanent. The other risky problem with a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be death of the skin of the nose – either at the glabella (bridge of nose) or at the nasal alae (sides of the nostrils). In the worst cases this may need skin grafting but either way, you could be left with permanent facial scarring and disfigurement. A non-surgical nose job should only be done by a medical expert!
What’s amazing about a liquid nose job?
Amazingly life transforming – that’s what a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be to some people. If you have gone through life being embarrassed or self-conscious about your nose because it has a hook, a bump or a hollow, if it looks too big for your face, if it has tip that you don’t like – then a liquid nose job can be life-changing. Can improve your self confidence and give a boost to your self-esteem.
A great treatment but don’t treat a liquid rhinoplasty lightly!
The complications of a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be catastrophic. The positive outcomes in terms of mental health, self-esteem, self-confidence and appearance after a liquid rhinoplasty can be life improving. So I can’t put enough emphasis on getting it done by a medical doctor. Other ‘professionals’ just don’t have the skills or knowledge to do it competently in the first place, and they really don’t know how to correct problems and treat emergencies that can ensue from a botched liquid rhinoplasty. A doctor will know and respect anatomy – key to getting a good and safe result for you. It’s YOUR face, it’s YOUR appearance – don’t entrust your future looks to just anyone brandishing a syringe!
Why does a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty out-perform surgical rhinoplasty?
Because it has almost no down-time, usually no bruising or swelling, can be done in a lunchtime, costs a fraction of the price, no general anaesthetic needed and the cosmetic results can be life changing. I don’t want to take anything away from surgery when its needed (for example a deviated nasal septum), but why have major renovation when you can often get a better cosmetic result and fewer complications with a liquid rhinoplasty? Come for a consultation or send me a picture and we can have a discussion about what is possible for you with a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
What can I do with a liquid rhinoplasty for you?
I am an expert in anatomy, injections, and injection techniques so you are in safe hands. Most nose bumps can be transformed as can broken noses, nose dents and deviations. I can make your nose appear smaller and can adjust the tip. The key to most non-surgical rhinoplasties is being able to augment the radix and contour the supra-tip.
