I have set up an appointment with a plastic surgeron for a rhinoplasty consultation. I want him to reduce the caudal over-growth of my nasal septum and narrow the width of my nose. However, I feel like, once the caudal portion of my nasal septum will be reduced, the tip of my nose will point up too high. Since the corners of my lips are a little bit too low, I was wondering if dermal fillers injected into my cheeks, near the nose, could raise the outer corners of my nostrils and of my lips.
Is It Possible to Slighlty Raise the Outer Corners of my Nostrils and of my Lips by Injecting Fillers into my Cheeks?

- It depends on your exam, you can experiment with lifting parts of the cheek or lip to see where filler would work
- You may just want filler in the lower lip to raise the corners as well
- Occasionally I do fat transfers during rhinoplasty to fill in areas for a better balance of the face, in a nice looking, permanent way
