Liquid rhinoplasty is a non invasive procedure that is done to improve the appearance of the nose without surgery and less downtime. Dr. Bustillo’s extensive experience with surgical rhinoplasty allows him to preform this procedure and achieve excellent results.
Dr. Bustillo will examine you in consultation and will determine if you are a good candidate. The ideal candidate’s nose is one with a mild to moderately sized nasal hump. A moderately droopy tip can also be treated. Noses with very large humps or very droopy tips are best treated with surgery. The filler is injected on to the bridge of the nose, mostly on the area above the hump so that the bridge will appear straighter on profile. The tip is then injected to support and raise it.
The procedure takes about 15 minutes to perform and is done in the office. Topical numbing cream is applied to the nose for about 10 minutes. The nose is then cleaned and the injections are applied. The result is immediate and it is rare to have any bruising. Ice compresses are applied after the procedure. The results usually last about 12-16 months.
