The Pros & Cons of A Liquid Nose Job

In the quest for a perfect nose, many individuals are now turning to the wonders of non-surgical rhinoplasty, often referred to as the “liquid nose job.” This revolutionary procedure offers immediate results and minimal downtime, making it an attractive option for those seeking to improve the appearance of their nose imperfections without going under the knife. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the fascinating world of liquid nose jobs, answering your burning questions, and shedding light on this transformative procedure.

 

The Non-Surgical Approach

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an alternative to a surgical nose job for many. It can soften and improve bumps on the nose, and asymmetry, give the tip of the nose a lifted appearance, and smooth other imperfections. The liquid nose job will not be able to make your nose smaller or offer the major transformations that the surgical procedure can as we cannot take away any bone or tissues during the non-surgical version.

Our patients opt for the non-surgical approach with us because often they don’t want all that comes with surgery; the general anaesthetic, the incisions, the recovery, and the risks associated with surgery. Often, if a person’s concerns can be addressed with the non-surgical rhinoplasty they tend to prefer to go that route, in our experience.

 

Dermal Fillers in Action

So how do we create these transformative changes without surgery? Very good question!

The liquid nose job is performed only by skilled, experienced, medical practitioners at our Hertfordshire clinic. These practitioners, either a doctor or a nurse, have had training in dermal fillers and additional, advanced training specialising in this highly skilled technique.

During the treatment, quality dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid are strategically placed in the nose to smooth, reshape, and refine it, addressing the concerns discussed during your consultation.

In some cases the treatment may be phased over two sessions however results can be seen immediately.

 

You’re In Safe Hands

This is a highly skilled technique that requires an in-depth understanding of anatomy and physiology. At The Skin to Love Clinic, the liquid nose job is only performed by a medical professional in our CQC registered setting to help reduce some of the risks associated with the procedure due to their advanced knowledge and understanding of the facial structures, technical skills, and ability to quickly and appropriately respond in the rare occurrence of a complication.

 

Addressing Potential Risks

All aesthetic and beauty treatments come with potential complications and side effects. With this particular medical-aesthetic treatment you are reducing your risk if you decide to have treatment with an experienced medical practitioner who operates using high standards of hygiene and infection control.

With any treatment that requires an injection, such as dermal fillers, there is a potential for bruising to occur, this is true for the ‘liquid nose job’ too. You should also be prepared for there to be swelling after the treatment and for a few days after; it’s good to understand that swelling can make the treatment area distorted in that immediate period so we would always suggest planning this treatment, ideally, a month before a special event to give you plenty of time for swelling to settle and, should a bruise occur, time for that to fully fade.

I can’t stress enough how much we recommend that a medical practitioner perform this treatment. As it stands in the UK, you don’t legally require any qualifications to pick up filler and charge someone to inject them with it; unfortunately, this is happening scarily frequently. Save Face was set up to help protect the public from such types.

Medical practitioners who specialise in aesthetic medicine possess in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, including vascular structures, helping them to lower your chances of complications; they can fully understand your medical background allowing them to assess your suitability for the treatment; they’ll also have access to emergency medical facilities and medication so should the unlikely event of a complication arise they can act appropriately, effectively, and fast.

 

The Natural Reversal Process

The liquid nose job is not permanent. Although we find that there is good longevity of dermal fillers placed in this area, you should be prepared to have repeat treatments to maintain your outcomes. This is generally after around 18 months, depending on how quickly the individual metabolises the product.

Many people like the idea that it is not a permanent treatment, particularly if they’ve never had it before. The dermal fillers will gradually be broken down and safely removed from your body and can be dissolved in some cases should this be required after further consultation.

 

The Ideal Candidate for a Liquid Nose Job

Desire for Minor Changes

You must understand that for some people, surgical rhinoplasty will be the only option. Non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the ideal solution if you have minor drooping of the tip of your nose or you’re looking to smooth bumps or dips, improve asymmetry, and refine your nose, however, the liquid nose job is not able to make your nose smaller or offer you major restructuring.

It’s really important to have realistic expectations and be open-minded when having consultations, both surgical and non-surgical, so that ultimately you choose the right option for you (which may well be not to treat your nose at all) and so that, ultimately, you’re satisfied with the results you may achieve.

 

No Major Structural Issues

If you’re looking for or require major structural changes, non-surgical rhinoplasty won’t be for you. This includes addressing breathing problems-you will need surgical intervention.

A consultation is key for you to understand if you are a suitable candidate for a liquid-nose job.

 

Minimal Discomfort

During your treatment you may experience some discomfort, however, the liquid nose job is not a painful procedure that requires you to be put to sleep with general anaesthetic. The dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic to make the treatment area comfortable during the procedure and you’re most likely to feel a scratch of the needle entering and some pressure during the treatment as the dermal fillers are placed strategically in your nose.

As the local anaesthetic wears off, your nose may feel a little tender for a few days, alongside any swelling that may occur but our patients always find this manageable with over-the-counter pain medication if they require it.

The treatment itself is quite short, often around 30 minutes in total. As our nurse says: “It’s taken a lot of training and experience to make it look this easy!”.

 

Post-Treatment Sensations

Explain common post-treatment sensations, such as tenderness and swelling.

Offer tips on managing discomfort, including cold compresses and over-the-counter pain relief.

I’ve mentioned that it’s likely that you’ll experience swelling for a few days post-treatment; always plan for swelling to occur so that you don’t feel pressure for it to have gone before a social situation, particularly if it’s your first-ever treatment as, naturally, you’ll be uncertain what that post-treatment period will be like for you as a unique individual.

You can manage swelling by placing light cold compresses very gently on the area to help reduce any swelling more quickly. Additionally, the life of a bruise may be reduced by applying arnica cream (an herbal remedy) and, as I’ve mentioned, should you require it, over-the-counter pain medicine may be helpful during your recovery if you feel uncomfortable at all.

 

Is a Liquid Nose Job Worth It?

Weighing the Benefits

‘Is the liquid nose job worth it’ is a question that only you can answer. A medical practitioner can discuss the treatment with you and possible side effects/complications but only you will know in your heart if the possible results outweigh the possible side effects of treatment.

A few benefits of the liquid nose job that have stood out for our patients have been that

  • You can walk away from the results-they are not permanent. Read about how long does non-surgical rhinoplasty last in our blog.
  • The results can be dissolved if needed. We’ve not had this situation but it’s nice to know that it’s possible.
  • Results can be ‘tweaked’ during further appointments should you and your practitioner feel it’s right to do so upon review.
  • You don’t have the same risks as a surgical procedure that requires general anaesthetic.
  • It’s a quick procedure with minimal recovery required in comparison to the surgical alternative.

Don’t rush into making a choice; you certainly should never feel pressured by your practitioner to go ahead with treatment and if you do feel that, then it’s your absolute right to say that you need to go away to consider everything.

 

Considering the Drawbacks

The liquid nose job can offer some outstanding, and quite frankly, life-changing results; take a look at some of our non-surgical rhinoplasty before and after photos in our comprehensive guide to this procedure. However, you must understand that non-surgical rhinoplasty does have its limitations, as mentioned above.

Essentially, if you’re looking to address breathing issues, non-surgical rhinoplasty is not going to help you. Equally, if you require major structural changes then surgical rhinoplasty may be the best option for you as we cannot remove skin or bone during the liquid nose job procedure.

If you aren’t willing to maintain the temporary results of your liquid nose job, then you may prefer to consider the surgical alternative which offers permanent changes to your nose.

 

Finding the Right Practitioner Near You

The Importance of Qualifications

I’m probably sounding like a broken record now, but choosing a qualified medical practitioner who is trained, experienced, and insured is really important. This is not to say that complications cannot occur with these individuals, they can, but the risks are often reduced.

Using Professional Registers

You may be able to find a practitioner that you’re happy to have treatment with via a professional register such as Save Face; they’ll be able to recommend medical practitioners who have proven their qualifications, skills, training, insurance, appropriate and safe treatment environment, and that they use legitimate, safe products.

In the world of cosmetic enhancements, the liquid nose job stands as a remarkable option for those seeking subtle yet transformative changes to their nose. Its non-surgical approach, minimal discomfort, and immediate results make it an attractive choice. However, it’s crucial to approach this procedure with realistic expectations and to choose a qualified practitioner for your safety and satisfaction. With the right guidance and practitioner, you can unlock the beauty of a non-surgical nose job and embark on a journey to nose perfection without the need for surgery.

    Yesterday, I underwent a Hydrafacial treatment with Nikki at The Skin To Love Clinic, and it was truly a remarkable experience.Nikki's expertise in tailoring the treatment to my skin's needs was evident from the start. The Hydrafacial process left my skin feeling deeply cleansed, hydrated, and rejuvenated.The addition of the J Lo booster serum took the experience to another level. Its application left my skin feeling incredibly smooth and plump, with a noticeable glow that was noticed by my husband,too!Overall, my Hydrafacial experience with Nikki exceeded my expectations. It's clear that her skill and attention to detail make her an exceptional aesthetician at The Skin To Love Clinic.I will definitely be back for more!

    I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

    10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

    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.

After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.
