Liquid Rhinoplasty: A San Diego Nose Surgery Alternative

Share Article

While rhinoplasty continues to be a popular cosmetic procedure, more women and men are searching for non-surgical alternatives. Dr. Amir Moradi now offers liquid rhinoplasty for people who want beautiful results with minimal downtime.

One non-surgical facial treatment that's gaining popularity is the San Diego nose surgery alternative known as "liquid rhinoplasty." Dr. Amir Moradi ( is now offering this innovative treatment at his practice for those wishing to alter or enhance the appearance of their nose.

"Liquid rhinoplasty is a procedure that involves the use of dermal fillers to enhance various aspects of the nose," says Dr. Moradi. "This treatment is ideal for people who want quick results and little downtime. Because the effects can be seen immediately after the procedure, patients leave feeling satisfied."

Liquid rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers to augment or add volume to specific areas of the nose, particularly the bridge and tip. Typical fillers that are used for non-surgical rhinoplasty include JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel and RADIESSE®. These fillers are injected into specific areas, which usually are used to build the nasal bridge or create a more defined tip. Additionally, San Diego BOTOX® treatments may be combined with non-surgical rhinoplasty to provide rejuvenation of the whole face while creating a balance between facial features.

"While some results of non-surgical rhinoplasty may be comparable to nose surgery, in general non-surgical rhinoplasty is better suited for those who need a more minor correction," states Dr. Moradi. "I still continue to see a lot of surgical rhinoplasty patients, though non-surgical treatments are becoming increasingly popular. We offer open and closed rhinoplasty procedures to accommodate a variety of different cases."

According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty was the second most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in 2009, after breast augmentation. While injectable fillers are a temporary solution for nasal asymmetry or imperfection, surgical rhinoplasty is a long-lasting solution. Both open and closed rhinoplasty may help improve the appearance of various aspects of the nose, helping bring together other facial features in harmony.

"Whether through surgical or non-surgical rhinoplasty, my goal is to help patients achieve their desired cosmetic goals in a quick and effective way," says Dr. Moradi. "In addition to facial cosmetic services, the practice offers laser hair removal in San Diego and other skin care services to help keep patients looking and feeling great."

At Moradi MD (, Dr. Amir Moradi offers both full-scale cosmetic surgery procedures and minimally-invasive options such as laser therapy and liquid rhinoplasty. Dr. Moradi received his medical doctorate with honors from the University of California San Diego, underwent extensive training at Duke University Medical Center, and received board certification from both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery).
