Asymmetry of nose after rhinoplasty
Some patients don't want to undergo an invasive procedure, and sometimes a minimally invasive injection can be done to camoflauge the asymmetry. A soft tissue filler can be used to fill in the other side. The hyaluronic based products are usually best, such as Juvederm which can last about 1 year, and Voluma which may last up to 2 years. The benefit of these products is that they can be done as an office procedure easily, but the downside is that they are not permanent and that they will make your nose overall wider.
Sometime patients like the results of the soft tissue filler and want a more permanent solution and fat transfer can be used. This technique removes fat from another part of your body by liposuction and it can be carefully processed and then re-injected in the same way that a filler would be injected. The downside to this technique is that it has to be done in a operating room and the results can be a little unpredictable and therefore may need to be repeated. The benefit is that once the fat takes - it is permanent.
