A non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a liquid rhinoplasty, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses injectable fillers to reshape and contour the nose without the need for surgery. The procedure involves injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane or Juvederm, into specific areas of the nose to improve its appearance. The filler is carefully injected and molded by the practitioner to achieve the desired results, such as correcting asymmetry, smoothing out bumps or humps, or enhancing the overall shape of the nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a popular option for individuals looking to enhance the appearance of their nose without undergoing surgery or taking time off from work or daily activities.
An ideal candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty is someone who is looking to improve the appearance of their nose without undergoing surgery. Good candidates include individuals with minor cosmetic concerns, such as a small bump or slight asymmetry, or those who are seeking to improve the overall shape and contour of their nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty may also be a good option for those who have had a previous rhinoplasty surgery and are seeking to correct minor imperfections or asymmetry.
It is important to note that non-surgical rhinoplasty is not a suitable option for individuals with significant structural issues, such as a deviated septum or severely crooked nose. In such cases, surgical rhinoplasty may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Additionally, individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of allergic reactions to injectable fillers should avoid non-surgical rhinoplasty.
For a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure, the practitioner will clean the injection sites and apply a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, a local anesthetic may also be used. Using a fine needle, the practitioner will inject small amounts of filler into specific areas of the nose to achieve the desired results. The filler is carefully molded and shaped to create a natural-looking contour and enhance the overall shape of the nose. Once the injection is complete, the practitioner will evaluate the results and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a symmetrical and natural-looking appearance.
The entire procedure can typically be completed in as little as 15-30 minutes, and patients can enjoy immediate results that can last up to 12-18 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual's unique physiology.
The recovery process for non-surgical rhinoplasty is typically minimal compared to traditional surgical rhinoplasty. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, although it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise or activities that could cause significant movement or pressure to the nose for at least 24-48 hours.
Some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites immediately after the procedure. These side effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few days. Patients can use ice packs to help reduce swelling and pain, and should avoid touching or massaging the treated area.
It is important to avoid wearing glasses or sunglasses that rest on the nose for at least two weeks after the procedure to avoid disrupting the filler and causing asymmetry. Patients should also avoid excessive sun exposure and apply sunscreen to the treated area to help protect the skin and maintain the results.

Doctor Ward has been fantastic to work with. He was so professional and empathetic to my situation. I’ve had this surgery done before. And the first one was a long and painful healing process. This time around was so much quicker and easier than the first. Plus their whole team is so nice and friendly. You’ll never be dissatisfied with the best and he certainly is the best!...
Dr. Ward and everyone in his staff are extremely helpful. They are very helpful and understanding and work beyond expectations to achieve desired results! Love my visits here and am loving the results. Thankful that I chose someone who cares so much.
Great surgeon! I cannot say enough about my wonderful experience with Dr. Ward and his staff. Dr Ward is so knowledgeable. His expertise with my rhinoplasty revision is the unquestionable reason I made the trip from Boise. I am one month out from my surgery and I look and feel so great. I am so happy with my results! He and his staff are so kind and made me feel so comfortable. The facilities are so beautiful and you feel right at home. I would definitely recommend. I am grateful to have had such a nice experience. I am a forever client....
I’m so glad that I put my trust in Dr. Ward. His skill and sense of aesthetic are impeccable and the surgery has changed my life for the better! In addition, his staff is also incredible and hand-picked. They helped ease my nervousness and told me what to expect pre and post-op.
No need for a visit to the operating room and it is reversible if you don’t like it.
