4 Common Misconceptions About Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Last Modified: August 3, 2022

There is a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to non-surgical procedures like liquid rhinoplasty. The majority of the public is often unable to differentiate the myths from the facts about non-surgical nose jobs. In this article, we seek to do precisely that. If you are considering getting a non-surgical nose job, this is a must-read for you. Let’s dive into the four of the most common misconceptions about non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty carries no risk.

Though a non-invasive procedure, liquid rhinoplasty carries a risk of vascular complications, especially when done by an unqualified individual. If the filler is injected incorrectly, it can enter into and obstruct a blood vessel, which can stop blood flow to the overlying skin or cause other more devastating internal complications. The nose has complex and delicate anatomy. 

Though a rare occurrence, adverse reactions to the filler can happen. That’s why you should always work with a qualified doctor. Always ask for a practitioner’s credentials and experience before you consider working with them. As our resident aesthetic practitioner, Dr. Farmah, says, “Non-surgical doesn’t mean no risk.” That’s why he has a well laid out risk mitigation plan that ensures a quick reversal of the procedure by dissolving the fillers in case anything goes wrong.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty results are permanent

In our post: Ultimate Guide to Dermal Fillers Use in Liquid Rhinoplasty, we talked about the pros and cons of dermal fillers used in non-surgical rhinoplasty, specifically hyaluronic acid fillers. Due to the hyaluronic acid gel-like nature, the doctor has total control over the amount to inject. The period may vary from one person to the next, one thing is sure: if you want to keep your results, you will need to get a touch up down the line. 

This can be after nine months or even up to two years, depending on the area of the nose injected and technique used by the practitioner(that’s why it is vital to only work with a qualified doctor). You might have come across some permanent nose fillers but remember our earlier point on the nose having delicate anatomy. Permanent nose fillers pose a high risk of causing irreversible damage to the local end arteries present in the nose. That’s why we advise against having these injected into your nose.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is expensive

One of the main misconceptions about non-surgical rhinoplasty is that it’s expensive. While this may be the case for surgical rhinoplasty, liquid rhinoplasty often costs around a tenth of the price of a surgical nose job. For one, surgical rhinoplasty costs start from an average of £4,500 and increase depending on several factors like the surgeon’s reputation and the complexity of the procedure. This has not factored in additional expenses like aftercare cost or further surgery if needed. On the other hand, a non-surgical rhinoplasty is nowhere near as expensive, with the average price being £400 to £600.

Also, since the procedure can now be done in as little as 30 minutes and the recovery period is absolutely minimal, patients won’t have to face extra medical costs, as well as lose money due to the need to stay out of work because of a surgery. Our non-surgical nose jobs cost £450, and we have teamed up with Payl8r to provide all clients the ability to have their treatments NOW AND PAY LATER!

Liquid rhinoplasty corrects all kinds of nose deformities

In our post: Everything You Need To Know About Dorsal Humps, we talked about why more and more people are turning to non-surgical rhinoplasty. As the center point of our face, the shape of our nose, particularly the bridge, heavily influences our entire face’s appearance. This is why most people concerned about their nasal features come to our clinic— they are looking for a smoother, more aesthetically appealing nose. That said, not all nose deformities can be corrected with non-surgical rhinoplasty. For one, any breathing problem-related issues may require surgery to be rectified. 

This is why it’s important to book a consultation with a qualified cosmetic doctor before concluding which procedure will be best for you. The doctor has the expertise and required knowledge to help you make an informed decision while addressing all your concerns.
