What is a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

A liquid rhinoplasty, also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty or the ” 5-minute nose job ” is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of dermal fillers to reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which is an invasive, surgical procedure, liquid rhinoplasty offers a non-permanent solution with minimal downtime. It is an ideal option for individuals seeking subtle changes to their nose, such as smoothing out bumps, correcting asymmetry, or improving the nose’s overall proportions.  The procedure is not intended to reduce the size of the nose, which is in stark contrast to most surgical rhinoplasties.

Benefits of Liquid Rhinoplasty

    Liquid Rhinoplasty FAQs

    Is liquid rhinoplasty painful?

    Liquid rhinoplasty is extremely well-tolerated by most individuals, with a pain score running around 1-3 / 10.
