possible complications of non surgical nose job in a weak nose could any complications

Question: Hi, wanted to ask a question about the possible complications of non surgical nose job.In a weak nose, could any complications or permanent nasal disfigurement occur from needle trauma to the soft tissue in the tip and mid vault area,particularly in atypical case where fillers have been injected from inside the nose.Thank you.

Answer: It is highly unlikely that a filler would damage a reportedly weak nose.

It is important that the physician injecting you use a very careful method of drawing back on the hub during injection to minimize that risk.

i want to get a nose job done

Question: i want to get a nose job done and wanted to know 2 things 1. how much does a nose job cost ? 2. how much time does a nose job operation takes ?

Answer: this is quite variable and can cost a few thousand dollars to 20,000. the reason for the variable price is it is based on the experience of the surgeon, cost of related anesthesia and facility, as well as the type and difficulty of the nose. time is also extremely variable from an hour and a half to 5 hours or more depending on who is doing the surgery, the technique chosen, and the type of problem encountered. for example, a revision rhinoplasty procedure may take more hours to complete.

My friend just got her nose done

Question: Should I have a rhinoplasty?

Answer: That question is a bit open ended. Obviously, rhinoplasty is not something you just dive into. You should base your decision upon long-term thinking and desire rather than a short-term whimsical idea. If you have functional breathing problems or other issues, you might get part of the procedure covered by insurance. The best thing to do is to discuss this desire with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who is skilled at helping you achieve your cosmetic desires but also by either improving or maintaining your nasal airway. Since facial plastic surgeons have as much knowledge inside as outside the nose, they are well skilled to help you achieve all of your nasal goals.

Is it possible to have two operations at the same time?

Question:Can I have a facelift and rhinoplasty at the same time?

Answer: In short yes. It depends on the health of the patient to have a longer procedure performed and if the surgeon is qualified to do both procedures and is willing to spend that time doing both procedures. Some surgeons may elect to split the procedure into two separate procedures; whereas some may desire to do both at the same time.
