How Do I Maintain My Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Results?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a liquid rhinoplasty or liquid nose job, is one of the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery today. People love the immediacy of results, no downtime, and the fact that they do not have to go under the knife. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose and want a non-invasive fix, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the answer you’re looking for.

Many people wonder about what happens during the procedure and how they can maintain the results. Let’s take a look at this innovative procedure and how you can keep the results for as long as possible. Knowing how to care for your nose after non-surgical rhinoplasty is essential.

What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses injectable dermal fillers skillfully placed to achieve a better looking nose. Fillers produce immediate results without the need for incisions or discomfort. Best of all, there is no downtime and no lengthy recovery process.

Dr. Thomas Walker offers non-surgical rhinoplasty to clients that are deemed good candidates for this amazing procedure. Liquid rhinoplasty can help patients achieve a smoother bridge, camouflage irregularities, build up the bridge, give a more narrowed or refined appearance, lift or refine the nasal tip, and/or add volume to the nose.

Recovery Tips to Help Maintain Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Results

You should know that non-surgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent treatment option. Just like other dermal filler interventions, the body eventually dissolves the material. Although this procedure is non-invasive, you can expect minimal discomfort, minor temporary swelling for a couple of days, and possible minor bruising. Topical numbing cream will be used to basically eliminate and discomfort.

The following tips can help you better maintain your rhinoplasty results while enjoying a speedier and more comfortable recovery.

Use Cold Compresses in the Beginning

Just after the procedure, your nose will be mildly swollen. You can use a cold compress for the first 24 hours although in most cases that’s not necessary.

Avoid Blood Thinners Until Healed

You should avoid taking blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen for 5 days before the procedure and shortly after because they can increase the risks of bleeding and bruising. No pain medications should be necessary after the liquid rhinoplasty.

Avoid Pressure to the Nose

Avoid anything touching your nose for the first 24 hours, including your glasses, sunglasses or hands. Applying pressure can possibly cause the dermal fillers to migrate to other areas, disrupting the form achieved through the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.

Additional Tips for Maintaining Your Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Results

To help maintain your liquid rhinoplasty result for up to one year, you’ll want to follow the tips below:

  • Stay upright for three to four hours after treatment.
  • Sleep with your head elevated the first night to reduce swelling.
  • Avoid exercise and exertion for the first 24 hours.
  • Do not touch or massage the treatment area.
  • Limit sun exposure.
