Swollen Nose After Using Radiesse for Revision Rhinoplasty
The plastic surgeon suggested a "grecian nose" and injected the Radiesse from the top of my bridge down to the tip. That was over 2.5 year ago. Despite the claim that the filler is supposed to dissolve and return the skin to its pre-injected stage, my nose has hardened and remains swollen, and there is a distinct wavy outline along both sides of the bridge of my nose that protrudes.
I have sought out dermatologists, and other plastic surgeons re: what can be done..my nose remains swollen, enlarged, and although the filler is gone, it feels like it has been replaced with scar tissue. I am beside myself. I am fearful of making a horrible look even worse and am reticient to try lasers or steroid treatments. Help! Anyone who can offer me some direction on what to do?
