I had a synthetic implant put in my nose a few years ago but my bridge is still too low and not smooth. What kind of a temporary or permanent filler can I use to raise my bridge now? (I am not ready to have another implant surgery..) Thank you.

Achieving a better result after nasal implant
you should be counseled about adding additonal filler overlying an existing implant and the potential for infection. Discuss this prior to undergoing the procedure. Use of a larger implant is an option you should also consider or transitioning to a cartilage graft.

While a filler can be sued to raise the dorsum a bit, it is not a permanent result like an implants. Perhaps you jsut need a larger implant.
