Silikon is an excellent filler for non-surgical rhinoplasty

In the hands of a well-trained, board-certified dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon, liquid injectable silicone is the ideal filler for non-surgical correction of nasal defects.  We achieve great results for our patients and have not had any complications.  We inject it into defects on all parts of the nose.  The key to a great result is being very conservative and injecting very small amounts.  Not only is silicone permanent (saving patients time and money), but it is very precise and gives natural-appearing results.  Understandably for a patient who is nervous or tentative, it may make sense to use a non-permanent filler for the first treatment.

Don't use permanent fillers

It is best not to ever use permanent fillers anywhere as they can cause almost unfixable problems anytime for the rest of your life such as infection.  It is almost impossible to remove them when problems arise.
