Many people don’t like certain aspects of their nose — their bridge is uneven or there is a hollow on the side — but they aren’t excited about the prospect of having surgery to change it. For those patients, liquid rhinoplasty with Dr. Khatri could be a great alternative.
What is liquid rhinoplasty?
Liquid rhinoplasty, also known as a “nonsurgical nose job”, uses dermal fillers and occasionally BotoxⓇ to change the appearance of the nose. The process is very simple. Dr. Khatri uses his extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to place the filler in the areas necessary to even out or balance out certain areas of the nose.
Who is a good candidate for a liquid rhinoplasty?
Anyone who has irregularities along the bridge of the nose, hide a dorsal hump and alter the tip of the nose. If you’re interested in actual nose surgery, this can also be a good way to “demo” a new nose.

What are the benefits of liquid rhinoplasty?

How is liquid rhinoplasty done?
In these procedures, the patient’s entire nose area is first numbed. Dr. Khatri injects the dermal filler in small amounts to the areas needing change. He adds volume in small amounts to ensure both safety (in that the filler doesn’t affect blood vessels) and that he achieves the right aesthetic balance. In most cases, liquid rhinoplasty takes about 30 minutes. The results are visible immediately. Dr. Khatri will inject filler, show the patient in the mirror, and adjust with patient input.
Is there any downtime after liquid rhinoplasty?
There is some minor swelling and sometimes minimal bruising, however, there is no downtime. As soon as Dr. Khatri is finished you can go out and show the world your new nose!
What will my results be like?

How long do the results of liquid rhinoplasty last?
The volume added with these dermal fillers usually lasts about one year.
