What is a Liquid Rhinoplasty, or Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

A liquid rhinoplasty, or non-surgical rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that uses injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite, to alter and shape your nose without surgery. The fillers are injected under the skin in strategic areas to smooth out bumps, lift the tip, add volume, or correct asymmetry. The results are temporary, lasting from 6 months to 3 years, depending on the type of filler used and your metabolism.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is also referred to as a liquid nose job, 15-minute nose job, or filler nose job. Dr. Pinky Devi Ayyappan, a qualified and experienced cosmetic and plastic surgeon in Bangalore, performs the procedure at Pinakpple Aesthetics. She will assess your nose and facial features and create a personalized treatment plan for you. The procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes and is performed in the using local anaesthesia. There won't be any downtime, so you can resume your activities without interruptions.

How Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Work?

A non-surgical rhinoplasty works by adding volume and contour to the nose with the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to plump up and smooth out wrinkles, folds, and hollows. They can also be used to enhance and sculpt facial features, such as the lips, cheeks, chin, and nose.

At Pinkapple Aesthetics, we recommend only premium hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma for this procedure. You should not feel any pain during this procedure. However, you might feel a slight pinching sensation when the needle goes in or pushing and pulling, but this is nothing to worry about. The procedure can take anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the complexity of the treatment area

What is Recovery Like After a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Recovery after a non-surgical rhinoplasty is usually quick and easy. You may experience some mild swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites, but these should subside within a few days. You can apply ice packs, arnica cream, or bromelain supplements to speed up the healing process. You can also take over-the-counter painkillers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, to relieve any discomfort.

You can resume your normal activities right after the procedure, but you should avoid the following for at least 24 hours:
  • Touching, rubbing, or applying pressure to your nose
  • Wearing glasses or sunglasses that rest on your nose
  • Exercising or engaging in strenuous activities that increase blood pressure
  • Taking blood-thinning medications or supplements, such as aspirin, warfarin, or fish oil
  • Drinking alcohol or smoking, which can impair healing and cause inflammation
  • Exposing your nose to extreme heat or cold, such as saunas, steam rooms, or sunbeds

You should also avoid any facial treatments, such as facials, peels, or microdermabrasion, for at least two weeks after the procedure. You should also use sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure, as this can affect the longevity of the filler and cause discoloration.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

If you want a smaller nose, to remove a large bump, to make wide nostrils narrower, or to minimize a bulbous nose tip, you are likely not a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty. These goals are highly achievable with a surgical procedure, but likely cannot be performed to your satisfaction without surgery.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, or a liquid nose job, is an excellent option for people who want to add contour to create the illusion of better shaped nose. It is a non-invasive procedure with no need for sedation, and minimal - if any - downtime. The only way to truly know if you are a good candidate for a non-surgical nose job is to meet with Dr. Pinky Devi Ayyappan. She will spend time with you and give you a detailed, clear assessment of your goals and the best way to achieve them.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Cost in Bangalore

The good news is that a non-surgical procedure such as rhinoplasty is a lot cheaper than a surgical rhinoplasty. It is, however, a temporary procedure that you need to repeat to maintain the results. You can expect to pay between 35,000 for non-surgical rhinoplasty in Bangalore. This cost reflects the complexity of this “liquid nose job” procedure. Only a few practitioners are qualified and experienced enough to perform safely and effectively. The cost usually reflects:

  • The qualifications and experiences of the practitioner
  • The reputation of the clinic
  • Quality of the products used and personalisation of the treatment
  • Dedicated aftercare
