The advantage to perlane is its potentially reversible quality using off label application of hyaluronidase. If you are satisfied with the results of the perlane, off label use of Silikon 1000 could be an option using the microdroplet technique over multiple sessions but would not the first choice and has the potential for multiple irreversible complications. It's utility is in smaller defects of the nose.
