As patients continue to seek non-invasive treatments across the cosmetic spectrum, “liquid rhinoplasty” is emerging as the non-surgical alternative to the traditional nose job. Using dermal fillers to change the appearance of the nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty is gaining in popularity due to its relatively low cost, convenience, and short recovery time.

There has previously been debate regarding the safety and effectiveness of this procedure – especially in the absence of large-scale studies reporting on the patient outcomes. To address this gap, the March issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), features a new study that includes an analysis of 5,000 non-surgical rhinoplasties performed between 2015 and 2019 – the largest published experience of non-surgical rhinoplasty to date.
