Non Surgical Nose Job Using Artefill?
- Asked by lori flores

Hi. The bridge of my nose between my eyes sinks in. (I believe this is called a "low nasal radix"?) My nose is fairly thin, with a high bridge, and a round tip if it helps to get a better idea of what my nose looks like.
I would like to fill it with a permanent filler and Artefill seems the best to me (due to it's permanence)so my questions are: Will I have to have multiple sittings and injections or is it done in one session? What would the cost be? I live in Texas by the way.
Try a temporary filler first for nose corrections
Temporary fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm @ $550 per syringe or Radiesse @ $630 per syringe should be done first to see if you like the results. Artefill is done in 2 sessions about 3 months apart @ $1200 per syringe and is permanent in most cases. You will need to be skin tested first to see if you are allergic to the collagen that the artefill is mixed with.

Correcting a low radix with Artefill
Fillers can be a nice solution for this specific problem. HOWEVER, I often recommend patients try a temporary filler such as Restylane or Juvederm first to see if they like the result. If they do (and most do), then Artefill is reasonable to consider.
Because of its permanence, though, it's important not to overshoot the mark. Many times this can be fixed in one session, but it's not uncommon to require two sessions a couple months apart. Also, Artefill must not be injected too close to the surface as I've seen done with some fillers. Fillers here should really be placed just on or over the bone and there should be no active acne eruptions near by.
All the best,
Hyaluronic based fillers and Radiesse are safer to start with

Be careful with Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
While some patients do benefit from a non surgical Rhinoplasty, most do not. The ones that do benefit from a non surgical nose job are the ones who need their Radix built up. Permanent fillers should be strictly avoided in the nose! Permanent fillers in the nose can lead to permanent problems such as infections that are hard to cure or scarring and nodules that are hard to remove. If you are going to go the route of a non surgical rhinoplasty then be safe and consider using Restylane.
Do not use Artefill in your nose
Don't waste your time and money thinking of a "non surgical" nose job. If you want any sort of decent improvent you need a surgical correction.
