Any Risks Associated with Cortisone Injection in Nose Tip?

I've had my second revision a couple weeks ago. I got a question about cortisone injection in the nose tip, are there more risks with injecting cortisone in the tip compared with the other parts of the nose? I have thick skin.

Risks of cortisone

injecting into steroids into the thicker skin of the nasal tip is quite safe - as long as dilute steroids are used and spaced apart

Little risks with cortisone injections in nose tip

There are very little risks associated with cortisone placed in just the supratip area of the nose. We have performed thousands of injections for thick-skinned individuals undergoing primary and secondary rhinoplasty and it is a normal part of the healing process with thick skin. Make sure that you use a dilute solution of cortisone such Kenalog 10.

when injected to the nose after rhinoplasty, it need to be very dilute and very small amount. Do not repeat . Cosult your plastic surgeon
