With these features, the nose can be “shaped” by injections until the desired result is achieved. And thirdly, nasal filling is much more economical compared to surgical techniques.
How long does the effect of the nose filling last?
The filling disappears in a few months and the nose takes its original shape. Time period depends on person and result can last for approximately six months to a year.
What are the disadvantages of the Liquid Rhinoplasty?
There are two main disadvantages. First, the result is not permanent. The effect times are different depending on the type of filling materials. The result can take up to one to two years, depending on the material and injection technique. Second, the main limitation of the technique is that only volume can be added. If there is a nose reduction, an advanced size hump and excessive curvature, filling injection alone will not be sufficient. Therefore, nasal filling may not be suitable for every situation, because some defects of the nose cannot be corrected with this method. But if the patient available for filler to fix little problems, it is great option.
