What to Expect During the Procedure
Your doctor will use a numbing lidocaine injection prior to the treatment so you will most likely not have pain, although there could be some sensation or mild discomfort. But you will be able to talk with your doctor during the treatment and if at any point, it gets too uncomfortable, there are other pain relievers you can discuss. There are few risks with liquid rhinoplasty, but rest assured, your provider at L&P Aesthetics will discuss all the risks prior to treatment. Some temporary side effects may include bruising, swelling, and irritation near the injection site, but these conditions can usually be covered up with make-up.
For people of every age, gender, and ethnicity, our facial plastic surgeons can use dermal fillers for a customized, liquid rhinoplasty so the appearance of your nose is improved while still maintaining your individuality.
How Long Will The Results of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last?
Typically a liquid rhinoplasty will last between 4-6 months, but it is important that you come back at least every six months for touch-ups to your nose.

What Can a Liquid Rhinoplasty Achieve?
Using dermal fillers during a liquid rhinoplasty, your surgeon can make minor adjustments to your nose so that it is symmetric and the elegantly contoured centerpiece of your face. Some of these adjustments include:
- Camouflaging the nasal hump by adding fillers above and below
- Adding length to a curved nose so that it appears more symmetrical and balanced
- Adjusting the nose so it is more defined and slimmer
- Smoothing irregular contours
- Augmenting the bridge to improve projection or definition
- Refining the nasal tip so it is not bulbous, undefined, droopy or asymmetrical
- Reducing large nostrils adding definition to the bridge or tip of the nose.

Liquid Rhinoplasty FAQs
Not only is a liquid rhinoplasty reversible (if addressed within 24 hours of the injection), but dermal fillers are versatile and effective making it a great treatment for anyone who wants to see what a minor change in the shape of their nose would change their appearance. Here are some of the benefits of the treatment:
- Not permanent: Because the fillers eventually get reabsorbed by your body, you can feel confident that the result will not last forever
- Cost: In the short-term, liquid rhinoplasty costs significantly less than traditional rhinoplasty
- Results: You’ll see results almost immediately and won’t need the downtime associated with surgery.
While a liquid rhinoplasty with dermal fillers can be very effective and is a great option for some people, it is important to understand the differences between the nonsurgical and surgical treatments.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is not permanent and can only make modest improvements to your nose. Typically, liquid rhinoplasty is a good option for people with saddle depression or slight variations on the bridge of the nose.
At L&P Aesthetics, our providers often see patients who have already had a traditional rhinoplasty but past are left with asymmetries. These irregularities can be adjusted with dermal fillers and will prevent the patient from having to undergo another surgery.
However, if you desire a permanent result, want to make dramatic changes to your nose and are comfortable with surgery, then a surgical rhinoplasty with the Bay Area’s best rhinoplasty surgeons, Drs. Lieberman, Parikh, and Curti, is probably the best route. See the before and after images of some of their actual rhinoplasty patients.
