Understanding the Treatment
Non-surgical rhinoplasty (injection rhinoplasty), using tissue fillers and occasionally botulinum toxin therapy, have become a reasonable option for many patients to improve the shape of a small bump, fill a depression, and improve the shape of a crooked nose.
The benefits of this procedure are as follows: they are less expensive; the patient is awake; and the treatment is done in the office. Not to mention, the changes happening to the nose are immediate and the patient can often return back to work after the procedure.
Botulinum toxin is an option for a droopy tip in some cases.
It should be noted that, although injection rhinoplasty is a very good option for many cases, it is still not an alternative for surgery.
The use of tissue fillers to the nose will depend on the type and extent of deformity present, the patient’s expectations, and finally the surgeon’s evaluation.
Injection rhinoplasty may not be suitable for every patient and does entail risks associated with filler therapy. Consult your facial plastic surgeon to determine if this procedure is right for you.
