Is Radiesses Safe On My Nose? (photos)

Yes and no for Radiesse on the nose.
Yes it can be used on the nose, I personally only perform HA fillers on the nose due to the vascular supply- much like Dr Khan. Most, but not all Specialists would prefer HA fillers over Radiesse as HA fillers like Juvederm can be reversed if it gets into an artery, Radiesse can not. All the best, Dr Davin Lim.
I would not use Radiesse on the nose
The reason for this is that it is not dissolvable like hyaluronic acids - the nose has limited vascularity,especially in prior surgically treated areas.
Radiesse to raise the nasal bridge
Thank you for asking about your Radiesse for your nose.
- Yes, radiesse can be used on the nose -
- I generally recommend Juvederm UP - or other hyaluronic acid filler because they can be dissolved if needed.
- You should also only have nasal injections by a very careful and experienced plastic or facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
- Why is this so important? Injections in this area are hazardous and filler can end up in blood vessels causing serious damage - only an expert please in the nose and around the eyes.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Fillers for nasal shaping
Fillers can be a great option for shaping the nasal bridge. However, these injections should only be carried out by expert injectors. The results can be long lasting and provide some lift to the nasal tip. However, there have been reports of rare cases of vascular occlusion from fillers in the nose. So, make sure to seek out an expert and have a frank discussion of risks and expected results.

Radiesse and the nose
I use Radiesse on the nose for people who are not sure of undergoing more permanent change. It lasts long enough to give an idea of which way to go with nasal improvement: permanent or continue with temporary. Seek the advice of a board certified plastic surgeon
