Retracted nostrils, fillers or revision rhinoplasty? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
In some patients, micro droplet Silikon-1000 treatments may be considered for permanent nostril lowering after rhinoplasty.
Non-surgical rhinoplastic revisions with liquid injectable silicone may be considered for nostril lowering and for filling irregularities that may result from revision rhinoplasty surgery. Temporary gel fillers have been associated with vascular occlusion and dead skin in a minority of cases. We have not seen any cases of skin necrosis after microdroplet Silikon injections, an off-label filler for permanent results. Hope this helps. Dr Joseph
Facial fillers for revision non-surgical rhinoplasty
Facial fillers might be used for non-surgical rhinoplasty, primary or revision. However, plastic surgeons recommend avoiding placement of fillers into the tip or nostril areas. Fillers are primarily used to build the bridge or camouflage a bump, not to treat retracted nostrils. Speak with your rhinoplasty surgeon regarding any issues you have.
