Is the Non-Surgical Liquid Rhinoplasty Safe?
In the world of aesthetic enhancement, and cosmetic medicine, over the years there have been thousands upon thousands of new procedures and treatments having been introduced. While in years past, procedures were a lot less specialized, and it meant that there were far fewer of them out there, in today’s aesthetic world it seems as though every other day there are new and unique procedures coming out, and each of these procedures offers patients the opportunity to work on improving the appearance of more and more specific areas along the body. And while many of these procedures are great, for many, in fact most of us, its best to stick to the basics, and these basics are both surgical and non-surgical. With the advancement of procedures, we have also seen the introduction of a number of safer, and less invasive options for certain classic procedures. One example of this is the noon-surgical liquid rhinoplasty or liquid nose job. The liquid rhinoplasty has taken the aesthetic world by storm of late, and has been seen everywhere, with more and more medical spas and aesthetic medicine doctors offering with each passing day. And while it has certainly increased quite a bit in popularity, one issue is that many patients, even those who have had the procedure done themselves, are rarely as knowledgeable as they should be on it and are going into things fairly blind. One thing that has been going around of late, is the question of whether or not this procedure, and the use of fillers along the nose and nasal passages is safe – especially when compared to the conventional surgical alternative. In this article, we will be exploring this idea and discuss the safety of the liquid nose job.
The Popularity of the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
When it comes to facial plastic surgery, the rhinoplasty has been one of the most popular aesthetic enhancement procedures across the country – amongst both men and women, of all age groups. The fact of the matter is that the non-surgical rhinoplasty or liquid nose job has become quite popular as many men and women aren’t ready to go under the knife, especially not for some type of aesthetic enhancement procedure. The fact is that this allows them to skip out on a long-drawn-out recovery process and means that they don’t have to worry about the side effects and possible risks that are associated with surgical enhancement procedures in general. Plus, if you aren’t happy with your results, you can have them revised without having to go back under the knife and have more surgery – as the results will generally only last approximately 6-12 months depending upon the specifics of the liquid rhinoplasty the individual gets. And while the non-surgical nose job, as seen on social media, appears to be this quick and easy thing – but it’s not a treatment to be taken lightly, and while it might not have the side effects of surgery, the fact is that the non-surgical nose job has its own set of possible side effects.
Possible Risks and Side Effects
It’s important to understand, that while there are fewer side effects with the liquid rhinoplasty, complications can happen, and are actually increasing across the board as these procedures gain popularity, and injectors’ qualifications become more and more questionable. In some cases, we have seen individuals who aren’t at all qualified offer these procedures at their practices. Some might not even be actual medical professionals, but skincare professionals who have not taken or gotten any injector qualifications or certifications at all. Its scary to think, but there is a worldwide epidemic of untrained practitioners injecting without a medical license, board certification, or a fundamental understanding of human nasal anatomy. This is actually what has led to the most issues with such a procedure, and it makes it vital for patients to ensure they only go to a qualified individual for injection treatments. While there are “no known numbers estimating the risks,” we have heard a number of examples of patients who’ve lost the tips or sides of their noses following misplaced needle pokes by other injectors.When people talk about it being risky, they’re referring to the complication of vascular compromise, which occurs when filler impedes the blood flow through a critical end artery, either by directly entering the artery itself and causing a blockage, or by compressing the artery from the outside, pinching it off, and stopping the flow of blood. An end artery, or terminal artery, is the sole supplier of oxygenated blood to a given area. The end arteries around the nose include those that feed each of the eye’s retina – damming these would cause immediate blindness – and those that nourish the skin around the nasal tip and nostrils; a clog in these pipes could deprive the skin of nutrients and oxygen, causing it to decay and die over the course of several days. You’ve got to be careful and ensure that your injector knows what they are doing and knows the anatomy very well. Be weary of deals that are too good to be true, as a professional charges professional prices for their service. Don’t be afraid to read reviews and find another injector if you are not comfortable with them.
