If you are looking for a less invasive—and less permanent—way to enhance the appearance of your nose, a liquid rhinoplasty may be an ideal treatment to consider. Liquid rhinoplasty is a non-surgical procedure designed to adjust nasal aesthetics with the use of injectable dermal fillers. Also known as a “non-surgical nose job,” liquid rhinoplasty can be a good alternative for individuals who would like to achieve noticeable enhancement of nasal contours but want to avoid invasive surgery and an extended recovery period. Our rhinoplasty surgeon in New Jersey, Christopher Godek, MD, is experienced with many advanced techniques and can develop a customized treatment plan designed to help you successfully achieve your goals.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Liquid rhinoplasty is often a beneficial alternative to surgical rhinoplasty for patients who are looking for a minimally-invasive way to improve aesthetic concerns affecting their nose. This treatment can also be an ideal option for those who wish to achieve more subtle results. A liquid rhinoplasty offers a number of potential benefits, including:
- Reduction in the appearance of humps on the bridge of the nose
- Improvement of balance and symmetry for noses that appear “crooked”
- Enhancement of a nasal bridge that appears “flattened”
- Elevation of the nasal tip
- Volumization of hollow areas
- Enhanced contours of the nostrils
Candidates for liquid rhinoplasty should be aware that, while the results of this procedure can be long-lasting, they are not permanent. It is also important to understand that functional problems such as a deviated septum and certain kinds of aesthetic concerns cannot be effectively addressed with a liquid rhinoplasty. During your initial consultation, Dr. Godek will discuss all aspects of the liquid rhinoplasty procedure and help you determine whether this is the right treatment for your needs.
What Can I Expect During the Liquid Rhinoplasty Procedure?
The liquid rhinoplasty procedure involves the injection of cosmetic dermal fillers in the precise areas of the nose that are targeted for enhancement. Dr. Godek typically performs these procedures using JUVÉDERM® and/or Restylane®, which are two of the most advanced and popular filler products available. A topical numbing agent can be applied to the treatment area to reduce discomfort during the injections.
For most patients, the entire liquid rhinoplasty procedure can be completed in approximately 30 minutes here at our practice.
Is There a Recovery Period After Liquid Rhinoplasty?
One of the most prominent benefits of liquid rhinoplasty is that it does not typically require a period of recovery. Most individuals are able to immediately go back to their normal daily routines; however, Dr. Godek advises patients to refrain from excessive physical exertion for a few hours following treatment. There may be some mild swelling and light bruising in the nasal area after the procedure, but these effects should quickly fade.
How Long Do Liquid Rhinoplasty Results Last?
The results of liquid rhinoplasty are often immediately noticeable. Depending on the specific type of dermal filler utilized in the treatment, outcomes from liquid rhinoplasty can last approximately one year, or even up to two years for many patients. If desired, follow-up injections can help maintain the effects once the initial results begin to dissipate.
