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. However, rarely a needle injection can be injected into a blood vessel in which case you could have a major problem but this is exceedingly rare. 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.
