Can I use a filler in the nose for a post op deformity?
Fillers have been an excellent adjunct to rhinoplasty surgery and are easy to use with a high predictability and minimal recovery. Even though the hyaluronic acid fillers are not considered "permanent" , there can be long lasting effects. Areas with minimal muscle movement seem to hold the correction longer and there appears to be some collagen deposition from the inflammation of the filler material which allows layering over time.
In other words, each time a filler is used in an area, the same volume goes further and lasts longer.
