The nose is central to the face and it plays a key role in the overall appearance. Even small changes to it contribute to a big difference in the way people look. Cosmetic alterations of the nose are all very popular.
Rhinoplasty is considered the gold standard for nasal reshaping, but the reality is that it may not be ideal for everyone. There is an alternative in the form of liquid nose lifts, which we offer at Shens Medical.
It is a cosmetic procedure that involves a non-surgical approach to nose alteration. It involves the injection of dermal fillers into the nose, which allows for changing its shape. It is particularly useful for patients that have minor asymmetries and isolated deformities of the nose. It provides instant results with little downtime. Some people also like to use liquid nose lifts as a form of test to consider whether they want a more definitive surgery down the road.
There are a few different goals we at Shens Medical can help our clients achieve:
Surgical rhinoplasty requires an operation to reshape the nose. This means the client is put under general anaesthesia as the doctors cut the skin and reshape the bones. There is a greater degree of swelling and bruising after the procedure and a longer recovery time.
Liquid nose lifts are a non-surgical alternative to the main method of rhinoplasty. They involve dermal fillers injected just under the skin on the nose. By placing them strategically, our experts can even out bumps on the nose, balance any asymmetries and give it a different shape. The results are immediate and there is no recovery time. It is a quick procedure that takes place in our office.
It is simpler compared to its surgical counterpart. We ask the client to lie down and tilt their face up. We may apply a numbing cream to the nose area so that they don’t feel any discomfort from the needle. Once the cream is in effect, the doctor injects the filler with a syringe in specific areas of the nose. It takes about 45 minutes to complete the process.
There may be light swelling, pain and redness after the procedure. The fillers will settle in an hour or two and the redness should subside within a day or two. The results become fully visible as early as a week and by that time there should be no discomfort in the area.
What are the pros of liquid nose lifts?
Filler ingredients dissolve into the skin over several months. The result of a liquid nose lift lasts between 6 and 12 months, after which time a new procedure is needed.
A liquid nose lift is a non-surgical alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. It relies on dermal fillers injected into the nose to alter its shape and form. The results of it are almost immediate and there is no need for recovery time. Results last between 6 and 12 months.
