I am aware that nose injections will make the nose bigger. Am I a Candidate for a Non-surgical Nose Job? (photo)

I have a large nose, with a bump. I am aware that nose injections will make the nose bigger, but I'm wondering if it would smooth out the bump at all, or if traditional rhinoplasty is the only way of helping me.

Dear JKnewyork,

  • Although it is attractive to have a new nose without surgery, I have found that in the patients with your type of nose, they are underwhelmed with the results
  • A surgical rhinoplasty would take care of all of your issues, would be permanent, and ultimately would make you happier than without surgery (which is the goal in the first place)
  • Seek out a rhinoplasty surgeon for an opinion where all of your concerns can be addressed

   The bump could be filled at the top near the radix, but I think you would get a better result from a rhinoplasty.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

fillers for the nose

 We do not recommend fillers placed in the nose  due to complications we have seen from other practices. Adding a filler to this nose will only make it higher, taller, and larger.  A rhinoplasty would involve the de-projection of the nose, removing a hump, reducing the columellar show, and preventing the tip from drooping upon animation. Sometimes tip surgery is also required. Virtual rhinoplasty software is available on our website for you to try out to see what your new nose might look like

Surgery is the answer

Non surgical rhinoplasties are usually only used for MINOR depressions that can be filled with a filler (that will go away over time). Come in and see an expert rhinoplasty surgeon who does most of the surgery in a closed technique to minimize scarring and speed up recovery.
