Unfortunately pushing a nose that is slightly crooked will not straighten it. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is used in instances where fillers can balance out the appearance of the nose, and are most applicable for patients who have an indentation or minor aesthetic problem with their nose.

If you have a large dorsal hump, significant asymmetry or problems breathing through your nose then a non-surgical treatment will not be suitable.

Dear joez,

It all depends on what the nose looks like.  You can place filler into the nose to balance out the two sides to make it look more symmetric.  If there is an indentation on one side, you can fill it out as well.  One way to know is to look at pictures or the best way is to have a trained professional examine you so we can set up expectations that are realistic.
