If your nose appears as large due to a large nasal hump, then Radiesse can help alleviate this large hump by being placed in the glabella/radix area which will camouflage the nasal hump. A consultation or photos would be helpful.

Radiesse, Helpful for a Large Nose?

Hi Sandy,

Only if the Radiesse comes with a nasal chisel and hammer and a rhinoplasty surgeon who knows how to use them.

Radiesse has been used in the "non-surgical rhinoplasty" popularized by Alexander Rivkin, MD. It is used to add volume to camoflauge the hump deformity. It will not make a large nose smaller.

Good luck and be well.
