Top Non-Surgical Nose Job Specialist Dr. Sanaz Harirchian

Board-Certified facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Harirchian understands that some patients would like to change the appearance of their nose, but are not interested in surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. Harirchian is pleased to offer liquid rhinoplasty as a non-invasive alternative. Non-surgical rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “liquid nose job,” is ideal for patients looking to improve the appearance of the nose as well as facial balance and harmony. Liquid rhinoplasty is a quick, non-surgical procedure that offers immediate results without significant downtime.

How Does Liquid Rhinoplasty Work?

In a liquid rhinoplasty procedure, dermal fillers are strategically injected to address cosmetic concerns and achieve a balanced look. Dr Harirchian only uses hyaluronic acid filler, such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Vollure®. During your initial consultation, Dr. Harirchian will discuss your concerns to determine the ideal filler to achieve your goals.

Benefits of Liquid Rhinoplasty

Liquid rhinoplasty is a popular procedure with a high patient satisfaction rate.1 Potential benefits of liquid rhinoplasty include:

  • Minimize the appearance of the dorsal hump
  • Diminish dips or divets in the nose (seen on profile view)
  • Fill indentations caused by nasal trauma
  • Straighten the appearance of a crooked nose
  • Add height to the nasal bridge (to address concerns about a flat nose)
  • Lift a drooping nasal tip
  • Add mild tip projection and definition
  • Camouflage nasal irregularities
  • Improve irregularities from a previous rhinoplasty
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Boost confidence and self-esteem

Subtle changes to the nose when planned carefully and executed meticulously can significantly improve facial balance.

Candidates for Liquid Rhinoplasty

During your consultation, Dr. Harirchian will discuss your aesthetic goals and examine your nose in order to determine if liquid rhinoplasty is right for you. Photos will be taken of your nose and morphing software can be utilized to illustrate potential results. The procedure can be performed the same day as the initial consultation. Patients with realistic expectations are often the most pleased with their results.

Ideal candidates for liquid rhinoplasty are:

  • Seeking to correct specific cosmetic concerns such as a nasal hump, crooked dorsum, or a flat bridge
  • In good general health
  • Not interested in surgical rhinoplasty at the current time

Liquid Rhinoplasty Results & Recovery

You can expect to see immediate results after your liquid rhinoplasty procedure. Results will typically last 9 to 18 months. Many patients opt for regular touch-up appointments to maintain their results. Patients who decide they would like permanent results may choose to have a surgical rhinoplasty with Dr. Harirchian.

Patients typically experience mild swelling or redness at the injection site, but these symptoms diminish in the hours immediately following treatment and resolve within 24 to 48 hours.

Dr. Sanaz works magic. I did the liquid rhinoplasty in the office. It was a very short, in office procedure. She is completely professional and made me feel at ease because she was so confident in the procedure. She is very gentle and lets you be involved in every step of the way. Will definitely be back.
