Guys, let’s have an honest and open conversation about nose jobs.
Not the surgical ones that require a trip to hospital, involve lots of bandages and leave you looking like you’ve come from a bar fight.
Specifically, we’re talking about liquid nose jobs.
Yes, the words ‘liquid’ and ‘nose job’ together sound equal parts intriguing and terrifying, but this non-invasive, non-surgical procedure is fast becoming one of the most requested cosmetic treatments in Australia.
There’s a lot to like about the idea of a liquid nose job – quick, pain-free, almost zero recovery time and a less expensive price tag than traditional rhinoplasty.
But there are also a few important factors to consider before paying for needles full of stuff to be poked into your face.
How long will it take? Will there be side effects? Is it safe? And most importantly, how will it look?
We picked Rhinoplasty Sydney’s Dr William Mooney‘s
nose brain to bring you absolutely everything you need to know about liquid nose jobs. No BS or judgement – just the practical, medical and financial information you need to know if you’re considering getting work done on your nose.
Having performed three liquid nose jobs the morning we spoke to him, as well as 15 years’ worth of procedures, we can assure you he knows his stuff.
What is a liquid nose job?
Liquid nose job, non-surgical nose job and injectable nose job are all different names for the same thing – injectable rhinoplasty.
“Injectable rhinoplasty is a technique of using fillers to modify and improve the contour or shape of the nose,” Dr Mooney told Mamamia.
“It’s a treatment for people who want to change the shape of their nose, but don’t want to do the full rhinoplasty. This could be for a number of reasons – medical, financial, time constraints. Basically, it’s a fantastic tool for patients who don’t want surgery but still want to improve the contour of their nose.”
