I'm a 14 female, and I'm planning to get a non-surgical nose job with radiesse. Can I do non-surgical fillers on the tip of my nose to make it pointier? If I augment my nose bridge with radiesse, it seems then that my brows ridges and forehead will look flat. Is there any non-surgical way to augment my brow ridges & forehead as well?

- You ask great questions and here are some answers
- If you are thinking of ever getting a rhinoplasty surgery, I would avoid Radiesse since it causes the tissues to be a little more sticky in surgery, and the leftover product will incorporate within the tissues, Restylane or Perlane would suit you better
- You can make the nose more pointy and augment the bridge
- We usually do not have issues with the brow ridges or forehead, and to be sure, we would need to see you in person

The limitations of non-surgical rhinoplasty
Thank you for your question. It is very hard to answer this question without some photographs. However, I usually do not recommend any nasal surgery before the age of 15-16 for females and 16-17 for males. Your nose will likely continue to grow until that time and there is the possibility that interventions (surgical or non-surgical) might distort the normal growth of your nose.
Facial harmony and nasal proportions are a very important concern in rhinoplasty. I would recommend you seek consultation with a local rhinoplasty expert in a year or two. You should mention you are interested in a non-surgical approach, but he or she will be able to explain the best methods to help you get the nose you desire.
