How Long Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last

How Long Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last?

The allure of non-surgical rhinoplasty, often referred to as the “liquid nose job,” lies not only in its immediate results but also in its temporary nature. If you’re curious about how long these non-surgical transformations last, you’ve come to the right place. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the intricacies of non-surgical rhinoplasty’s duration, shedding light on what you can expect from this remarkable procedure.

 

A Temporary Transformation

One of the things that our clients like about the ‘liquid nose job’ is that it is temporary, unlike its surgical alternative. Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses carefully and strategically placed dermal fillers to improve nose imperfections, such as bumps, on the nose.

Dermal fillers are made out of a synthetic version of the hyaluronic acid found naturally throughout the body. To call non-surgical rhinoplasty the ‘liquid nose job’ is false because dermal fillers are not actually ‘liquid’. Fillers come in gel form and vary in thickness; different thicknesses are used for different concerns and the depth at which they need to be placed. If dermal fillers were actually ‘liquid’ the product would disperse quite quickly throughout your tissues rather than staying in the place you put it to create the smoothing, or filling, effect required in a non-surgical nose job treatment.

Dermal fillers are commonly used in aesthetic medicine to fill and smooth wrinkles and to rebuild the volume that has been lost in your fat pads; a really common example is the cheeks. Much like naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, the synthetic version designed specifically for medical-aesthetic treatments, is gradually broken down and removed by the body, making non-surgical rhinoplasty results temporary.

 

The Durability Factor

Although non-surgical rhinoplasty is temporary, that does not mean that the results are short-lived. As I mentioned a moment ago, your body will gradually break down the dermal fillers used for your ‘liquid nose job’. How quickly you metabolise the filler is 100% unique to you and there will be multiple factors contributing to the longevity of your liquid nose job results; these include how fast your natural metabolism is, amongst other things that I’ll delve into in more detail later.

In our experience, the average patient will require further treatment about 18 months down the line; some sooner and some will get longer out of their results. This usually varies from 12 to 24 months.

 

Revisiting the Procedure

Sometimes practitioners choose to perform the non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment in phases; it may be done in one session or you may have the complete treatment throughout two different sessions. This is something that will be discussed with you before your treatment.

Additionally, the wonderful thing about dermal fillers is that you can tweak the results; if required, and appropriate, further products can be placed. Equally, dermal fillers can be dissolved. So, unlike surgical nose job results, liquid nose job results can be tweaked.

One thing that you should be fully aware of when it comes to your liquid nose job results is that they require maintenance. If you are not prepared to have ongoing treatments due to the temporary nature of the liquid nose job then you may be more satisfied exploring surgical rhinoplasty. Should you decide that you no longer wish to maintain your non-surgical rhinoplasty results, no problem! Simply don’t have further treatments and your body will gradually remove the dermal filler that’s there.

 

The Appeal of Flexibility

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is temporary; I know, I know I sound like a stuck record but sometimes in our excitement we overlook aspects of a treatment and then further down the line those things we overlook gradually become important to us. Hey, we’re all human.

The fact that the results are temporary often makes the liquid nose job an interesting option for those who are unsure about permanent changes; this is, after all, literally in the middle of your face. It’s natural to feel nervous about making changes to your features. For some people, they’ll never want, or may not be a candidate for, surgical rhinoplasty. For others who ultimately want the permanent solution that surgery can offer, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a good way for them to understand what some of those more permanent changes may look like. Have a look at some of our non-surgical rhinoplasty before and after images to see what can be done.

 

The Natural Process

The reason why the liquid nose job is temporary is because it uses dermal fillers made from a synthetic version of the hyaluronic acid (H.A.) found naturally within our skin and tissues. H.A. is essentially a sugar molecule that provides volume and ensures the tissues are hydrated.

The body has naturally occurring enzymes that break your natural stores of H.A. down. The same happens with the synthetic H.A. used in the liquid nose job- enzyme activity breaks it down over time and the effects gradually diminish.

 

Personal Variations

The breakdown process of hyaluronic acid varies among individuals. We’re talking about the human body here, no two people are the same. This process is influenced by many factors, including metabolism, genetics, and lifestyle. This is why no practitioner can guarantee exactly how long your results will last, although they can give you an approximate of the expected longevity based on experience.

Things that tend to age us naturally, such as smoking and a poor diet, will contribute to the breakdown of dermal fillers. If the skin and supporting tissues are not being supported with a healthy blood flow and a good oxygen supply, nor nutrients that support skin health, then your natural hyaluronic acid AND any synthetic H.A. tend to break down faster.

 

Ensuring Optimal Outcomes

It’s important to find a practitioner who is firstly qualified to perform this advanced filler technique and understand the complexities of facial anatomy and secondly, someone who uses high-quality dermal fillers. These two factors can greatly increase the ability for the practitioner to work on your nose imperfections correctly.

We’d always recommend seeking a practitioner who has medical qualifications for any treatment that requires injections. It sounds quite obvious when you read that in black and white but aesthetic treatments can be a very confusing world, what with people in the UK currently requiring absolutely NO qualifications to buy dermal fillers and inject you with them (and charge you for the pleasure). Sadly, this is by no means rare… oh yes, we’ve heard all sorts of horror stories.

One way to help sort the qualified from the, well, not qualified is by using a directory such as Save Face.

 

Weighing the Pros and Cons

You may be able to get a good flavour of the benefits and the possible risks that come with non-surgical rhinoplasty during your research, however, a consultation will clarify those for you.

Before having a consultation, it may be worth considering exactly what you want to achieve from treatment so that your practitioner can tell you if your expectations are likely to be met with the liquid nose job.

Remember, you’re not going to find the answer to whether or not the liquid nose job is worth it for you on Google; you have your own unique goals, medical background, budget, and preferences and only you can answer that for yourself. It’s all about making informed decisions.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a transformative procedure known for its immediate results and temporary nature. These results can be transformative but the temporary nature of the results allows you to walk away from them, should you wish.

Understanding the duration of these results is essential for those considering this non-invasive option. While results typically last from 12 to 24 months, individual factors play a significant role. The flexibility to maintain, adjust, or revert to the natural appearance makes non-surgical rhinoplasty an attractive choice for those seeking changes without the permanence of surgery. As you embark on this journey, remember to consult with qualified practitioners to ensure optimal outcomes and a fulfilling experience.

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

    I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
