Not Happy with my Rhinoplasty 5 Months Post Op. Non-surgical Rhinoplasty an Option? (photo)

Hi. I'm looking to get a revision for my nose after I had a rhinoplasty performed in November. I'm not happy with the results. I think it's too short, the tip is upturned and my nostrils are showing significantly. My surgeon also made my nose curvy, not straight which I had preferred. Having said that, I was wondering if a filler could straighten my nose, make it longer and fill my tip to hide my nostrils a bit. Is this possible with fillers? If so, what kind of fillers should I get? Thank you!

Yes it is possible to some extent with Restylane
I see why you are unhappy. You can get some improvements from Restylane in a non surgical revision rhinoplasty fashion but I would avoid thicker material like Radiesse or Artefill or Silicone. Ideally a proper revision is needed but a little bit of Restylane to the bridge and around the nostrils and slightly around the tip may help. This has to be done by an experienced surgeon because complications can occur. Over injection should be avoided. You should have your surgeon do computer imaging so that at least this time you will be on the same page as far as the results. Sounds like you did not do computer imaging last time and that is why the results have been a surprise. I wish you luck.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty to Correct Nose Imperfections
The non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great technique whereby we can correct or improve nasal defects or imperfections (related or unrelated to a prior rhinoplasty) with injectable fillers. It is a fairly simple procedure with minimal pain and minimal downtime other than possible swelling and bruising. In our practice we use liquid injectable silicone as our filler of choice as it is permanent and precise. I think you would be a good candidate based on your pictures and concerns, and I suggest you consult with a board-certified physician to discuss this further.

Non surgical rhinoplasty
A non surgical rhinoplasty is a great options for those patietns that are just not completely satisfied after having underdone a surgical rhinoplasty. Non surgical rhinoplasty allows the surgeon the ability to adjust and perfect the nose. It is straightforward and is accomplished in less than an hour. So yes, you would be a good candidate for this. It is important to use the right filler, based on your skin type and where the filler needs to be placed.
