Can I Get my Nose Reshaped Without Surgery?
Doctor Answers 7
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty, using fillers, depends on what is wrong with the shape of your nose.
Hi Madam Jolly;
For some people, particularly those with only a low bridge, using a facial filler, rather than surgery, is an excellent option. Remember that, typically, the filler products work best when there is "too little." If your nose is big already, then putting a filler in is only going to worsen the problem. Let's also consider that some people have asymmetries, where one side is a little lower than the other. That would be another indication for the use of a nonsurgical reshaping technique.
The real issue is what is wrong with your nose, and what could be helped by filling, which is an additive process rather than rhinoplasty surgery, which, typically is a reduction process. What I mean by that is most people having rhinoplasty have things wrong with their nose that can be corrected by "taking off" tissues. That would include:
- Removing the bump
- Narrowing the nose
- Refining the tip
- Lifting the nose from the lip
None of the above can be matched by a nonsurgical injection rhinoplasty.
I suggest that you consult with a rhinoplasty surgeon who is known for his expertise in nasal surgery and whose practice is mostly nasal surgery. Ideally, that practitioner will be fellowship trained in addition to having completed residency and being board certified. If you are considering a nonsurgical, or filler, rhinoplasty, then, of course, you want to consult with someone who has experience using the various filler products.

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty is a Misnomer
I have used hyaluronic acid products, Radiesse and ArteFill for non-surgical rhinoplasty. I usually start patients with a temporary filler to ensure that they love the result, then when they do and they need more, I use ArteFill which is the most enduring filler. Make sure you find a qualified physician who has before and after photos to show you before doing anything!

Non surgical rhinoplasty can work.
Everything depends on your exact anatomy. Radiesse injected deeply is safe and lasts a long time.
Reshape nose without surgery
The answer is YES, certain features of the nose CAN be improved without surgery. Injectables, in general, are soft and non structural. They can be used to fill concavities and soften rough contours. Fillers, however, are no substitute for rhinoplasty, which in many cases is life changing, and can make an unattractive face beautiful. Depending on what you look like, what you want, and who does your surgery, rhinoplasty may be the best investment you ever make.
