What Is A Nonsurgical Nose Job?
Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure that provides subtle enhancements to a patient’s nose. Often, this procedure is performed as a surgery.

"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Dr. Eagan is very talented and knowledgeable. After two pregnancies that left me with irreversible damage to my stomach, I had a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair. My results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Eagan patiently addressed all of my questions. She gave me options for my specific situation and was not pushy about adding any additional unnecessary procedures. I was given all of the information I needed prior to surgery and for after-care. She was readily available in the days following the surgery for any concerns and gave me the right combination of medication to keep me out of pain. I followed all of her directions and feel like I had a quick and successful recovery. I couldn’t be happier with my incision. It is really straight, thin, symmetrical, no dog ears, and well placed. Having my muscle separation repaired restored my ability to properly workout, dance, and do all of the things I was lacking the confidence to do. I’m so happy to have my life and body back.LikeShare"- V.R. / Yelp / May 01, 2023

How Is A Nonsurgical Nose Job Performed?
Often, patients do not realize that injectable dermal fillers, like Restylane, can prevent the need for surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Eagan, she will listen to your concerns, evaluate your nose, and determine if this procedure is right for you. Before creating your personalized treatment plan, she assesses certain factors, such as the height, projection, and curvature of your nose. After evaluating your nose and marking the injection spots, we can start your Restylane injections. Using a thin dermal needle, the Restylane formula is administered into the external part of your nose. Typically, Restylane injections last for about two years.
What to Expect from Nonsurgical Nose Job
Right after your treatment, you will experience some minor side effects, like redness, soreness, and swelling. These symptoms are very common and should subside in a couple of days. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, patients can resume their normal routine following the treatment. Our group will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your nose and reduce any discomfort. To maintain your liquid rhinoplasty results, you will need to schedule follow-up appointments at New Orleans Plastic Surgery every two years.
What Is The Cost of Liquid Rhinoplasty?

When performed by an experienced provider like Dr. Eagan and her team at New Orleans Plastic Surgery, liquid rhinoplasty is very safe and effective with dramatic results and very little risk of complications.
How long does a liquid rhinoplasty take?
A liquid rhinoplasty procedure doesn't take long at all, often being completed in about 30 minutes.
Is liquid rhinoplasty painful?
No, it isn't. Before your procedure begins, Dr. Eagan will numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable, so most patients don't feel any discomfort at all. The needles used for the injection are much smaller and finer than the needles used for vaccine injections.
How long does a liquid rhinoplasty last?
Liquid rhinoplasty can produce dramatic aesthetic results that typically last up to two years.
Can liquid rhinoplasty address asymmetry in the nose?
Yes, liquid rhinoplasty can be used to correct minor asymmetries in the nose. By carefully placing dermal fillers, the team at New Orleans Plastic Surgery can make subtle adjustments to create a more symmetrical appearance. This technique is ideal for those who have slight irregularities they wish to correct without undergoing surgery.
What should I avoid after a liquid rhinoplasty procedure?
After a liquid rhinoplasty, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities and exercises for a few days to minimize swelling and bruising. Also, patients should avoid wearing glasses that rest on the nose bridge for a short period after the procedure to prevent altering the results. Direct sun exposure and extreme temperatures should be avoided as well, as they can increase swelling and affect the healing process.
Are the results of liquid rhinoplasty reversible?
One of the advantages of liquid rhinoplasty is that the results are typically reversible. This is because most fillers used, such as Restylane, can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This option provides a level of flexibility and reassurance for patients, as they know that if they are not satisfied with the outcome, it can be adjusted or reversed by Dr. Eagan.
