I read your concern. My preference and expertise with non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures is with Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results. In my practice, silicone may be injected into your columella and nasal sidewalls to restore symmetry.

Fillers to volumize the nose

Filling agents can successfully add volume to selected areas of the nose  in order to correct nasal asymmetries and depressions.  A word of caution, the nose contains a complex vascular network that connects to other major facial vessels as well as the eyes, and expertise in anatomy and injection techniques is essential to avoid potential serious side effects

Fillers and the nose

Fillers are not the best thing for the nose in general bu tcan br used to fill small depressions or irregularities. I would not specifically use it to fill up the columella or nasal side walls.  You are better off with grafting during a rhinoplasty.

Filler injection complications

By fillers I assume you mean injectable fillers. You can do a lot of things that does not mean you should. It depends on what you are starting with and what goal you want to achieve. If you inject into the sidewalls near the nostrils you have to be very careful because you could end up blocking off arteries in the area resulting in skin death of variable depth. In my mind the possiblity of a disaster outweighs the temporary results of most injectable fillers for this specific type of treatment. If you truly are a narcissist I am not sure I would agree to do anything including dermal filler injections.

Yes, dermal fillers are a great option to add volume, change the shape or appearance of the nose.  Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse are all excellent options.  Whether for the nasal dorsum, tip or sidewalls, these natural fillers can be used to create volume.  They are best used in small amounts by a skilled practitioner.  Good luck!

Fillers to reshape the nose

Fillers are a excellent way to restore volume and recontour the nose.  It works well on the radix, the columella and side walls.  I have used it as well after rhinoplasty.
