A liquid rhinoplasty or “liquid nose job” can enhance the nose’s appearance without the need for surgery.
This is a nonsurgical, micro-invasive procedure that’s nearly painless and uses a hyaluronic acid filler to temporarily transform the nose shape and contour. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform, and the results last about one year. At Refine Plastic Surgery in Nashville, liquid rhinoplasty is a technique recommended by Dr. Lucas Bryant for patients who want to see what they would look like with a different nose. This procedure gives patients the opportunity to determine if permanent correction through rhinoplasty surgery might be needed later in life.
Juvederm and Restylane are composed of a unique hyaluronic acid gel that is specifically formulated for strength and durability. It is carefully injected into the nose above the cartilage and bones.
With an artistic eye, Dr. Bryant then shapes and molds the Juvederm nose filler to create the patient’s desired shape. The nose filler is malleable, so it sculpts with ease for a short period after injection. Hyaluronic acid fillers have a low risk of allergy since the skin already contains native hyaluronic acid. The selected Juvederm or Restylane filler product has a natural look and feel.
The most important part of the consultation is learning which cosmetic concerns the patient wishes to address. A liquid nose job may be suitable for patients that wish to correct the following cosmetic nose concerns:
It is important to understand that there are some things a liquid nose job can’t do. While it is excellent for improving shape, symmetry, a drooping nasal tip, or a slightly crooked nose, it cannot make a large nose smaller. Since it only adds volume to the nasal area, the procedure is not able to shave away bone or nose cartilage. Rhinoplasty surgery would be needed to accomplish this. However, a liquid nose job can make a large nose appear smaller by tricking the eye into seeing a more proportional, attractive nose. Enhancing parts of the nose you like while detracting from parts of the nose you do not like is the key to nonsurgical nose augmentation.
Once a treatment plan is made, a topical numbing cream is placed for several minutes. Dr. Bryant uses a high-quality topical anesthetic to ensure the patient feels little to no pain during the nose filler injection.
This is followed by a series of small, precisely placed injections of a hyaluronic acid-based filler into the nasal area. Right before your eyes, a new nose takes shape. Dr. Bryant sculpts the filler in accordance with your cosmetic preferences. Patients love seeing the instant liquid nose job results. After treatment, you can enjoy the results for up to one year.
During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be formed, determining the final method of nasal reshaping with your goals in mind. Dr. Bryant offers photo morphing during his rhinoplasty consults to ensure that you both are on the same page.

After your procedure, Dr. Bryant will review your liquid nose job aftercare instructions.
There is no liquid nose job downtime or recovery period, making it an attractive alternative to nose job surgery, which can have a downtime of 7 to 10 days. When you leave the appointment, you can go about your normal daily activity immediately post-treatment. The nose may feel slightly tender following the injection. Mild swelling may also occur. The topical anesthetic reduces discomfort for approximately one hour following the procedure. While it is unlikely that a patient experiences pain following the procedure, Tylenol may be taken if needed.
It’s difficult to provide accurate pricing without seeing your nose in person.
Each patient requires a different amount of Juvederm nose filler to obtain the results they are seeking. As every nose is different, it is in your best interest to see Dr. Bryant for a private nose consultation. He examines the nose in order to make a determination about liquid nose job pricing. Refine Surgery strives to offer fair and reasonable pricing that is commensurate with Dr. Bryant’s experience and the cost of each Juvederm vial as determined by the manufacturer. In general, patients can expect to pay between $1000-1500, variable based on the extent of correction that is needed.
You may resume most daily activities immediately following treatment. However, physical exertion should be limited for the first 24 hours. Patients must also not engage in any activity that may cause damage or injury to the nose.
Please avoid wearing eyeglasses for the first 1 to 2 days after the procedure, or as advised by your nose job specialist. Since the nose filler is moldable for a short time after the procedure, it’s important not to apply pressure to the nose. Do not pinch or push down on the nose during this time. It is also a good idea to sleep on your back for the first night or two, or as advised by your physician.
