Nose Filling

Nose Filling Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Nose filling  or  nasal tip filling ; It helps to correct the appearance of the nose or increase the height of the nose with the filler. Non- surgical  rhinoplasty is an alternative to  surgical rhinoplasty , but it is not a permanent procedure. Many  choose to try non-surgical rhinoplasty  with nasal filling before having  a surgical rhinoplasty  .

What is non-surgical rhinoplasty with nasal filler?

It is traditionally   done surgically with rhinoplasty . It remains the gold standard for nose reshaping, but   for those who don't want a permanent change or want to try a temporary procedure  before rhinoplasty ,  injectable nose augmentation with dermal fillers may be appropriate.

The bumps or ridges cannot be removed with dermal fillers. Rather, the cavities can be filled to correct the nose. For example, if there is a prominent dorsal hump (a bump on the nose or a hooked nose), then the area above and below the hump can be filled in to straighten the nose. Another use of nose fillers is to straighten a nose when it deviates to one side. This can be achieved by injecting the concave side of the nose.

Nose tip  height is generally requested by patients. This can be achieved by injecting filler at the base of the columella (the underside of the nose that separates the nostrils) as well as the tip of the nose, thus making the tip appear raised.

 Another use of dermal fillers in the nose  is to increase nose height in those with less pronounced nasal bridges or flatter noses.

What are the types of dermal fillers that can be used in the nose?

Hyaluronic acid fillers ,  which are the most common type of   dermal fillers used in general  , are the most commonly used fillers in the nose. They are temporary, but can last for several years. They are also reversible by injection of hyaluronidase enzyme, which dissolves hyaluronic acid fillers. Aesthetics  of the  fillingthis can be used in an emergency where the filler is accidentally injected into an artery (see risks above). Many patients find the effect of dispersion of the nasal filler 1 year ago. With studies using MRI scans, we believe this is not due to loss or metabolism of the filler, but rather due to filler migration. In the case of the nose, this may be due to moving away from the bridge of the nose.

Permanent fillers  can also be used in the nose. The advantage of using permanent nasal fillers  is that the treatment is one-off and the risk of repeated injections is avoided. The downside is that it cannot be easily corrected when the layout should be sub-optimal. Also, permanent fillers have a greater risk of problems such as granuloma (reactions with the body) causing lumps or hardness of the filler.
