For those unhappy with the appearance of their nose, rhinoplasty is the go-to solution. Our plastic surgery patients from Washington, DC, and beyond trust us to sculpt and refine this important feature and transform their look. However, even though rhinoplasty can create amazing results, it isn’t the only option available. Nonsurgical treatments such as “liquid rhinoplasty” have quickly become popular trends.
Rhinoplasty and fillers can both be used to adjust the shape and slope of the nose. And in some cases, they can even be used together to complement your final look.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the nose and enhances its appearance. The surgery involves making a small incision either inside the nose or along the strip of skin between the nostrils. This incision allows the doctor to adjust the underlying nasal structures. After the cartilage and bone have been reshaped, the incisions are stitched up.
Many patients enjoy the transformative nature of a nose job and how it can address many issues at once. The size, shape, and angle of the nose can all be altered during surgery. The procedure is best for making major changes that can’t be fixed with nonsurgical methods. The results are long-lasting and can be enjoyed for many years to come.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Choosing to undergo plastic surgery is a major decision. Some patients prefer other less-invasive rhinoplasty options that can achieve the same results. While no nonsurgical procedure can create the exact same look as a traditional rhinoplasty, dermal fillers can be an option for those who want to “test run” a new look.
Liquid rhinoplasty uses small injections of dermal fillers at precise locations across the nose to transform its appearance. A skilled plastic surgeon can use the fillers to adjust nose shape or camouflage unflattering issues. Many men and women enjoy this approach as there is no required downtime, results are nearly instant, and there’s no need to go “under the knife.” Fillers used in the treatment are also dissolvable, so the procedure is reversible if necessary.
Using Rhinoplasty & Dermal Fillers Together
If you’re interested in changing the appearance of your nose, it’s useful to consider all your options. Rhinoplasty remains the best choice for those who want to make major changes to bone and cartilage structure. If you want to tweak minor issues or try out a different look, dermal fillers can give you a temporary improvement. When you feel ready to commit to a permanent solution, you can choose rhinoplasty with confidence.
