What options do I have to fix my nose? Broke at a young age, had ER surgery, still have bump. Juvederm VS rhinoplasty? (Photo)

Surgical or non-surgical rhinoplasty after broken nose?
- Juvederm can be used to conceal the bump - but it will raise the bridge of the nose.
- And you may have other changes in your nose besides the bump -
- I suggest you see a plastic or facial plastic surgeon for a full examination and discussion before deciding.
- Even if they recommend surgery, unless you have significant trouble breathing that needs surgical correction, have them try one Juvederm treatment first so if you need surgery, you know it's the right thing to do.

Great question and thank you for sharing. Dermal fillers are a great way to disguise your dorsal bump temporarily, whereas a true rhinoplasty offers a more permanent solution. Since you have injured the area in the past, a CT scan would be helpful to understand the current state of your nasal bones. In my practice, I also like to use 3-D volumetric photographs to communicate realistic surgical outcomes for my patients. An in person evaluation is necessary in order to choose the best treatment option for you. I recommend consulting with a board-certified specialist who is also experienced with injectables.
