Alar reduction after Juvederm injection for nose
In most cases when Juvederm is injected into the nose, it is placed on the top portion and not the alar area. If this was the case with you, it should be fine to have alar reduction surgery 3 weeks after your Juvederm treatment. I would recommend discussing this with your particular surgeon however.
The quick answer is yes...its ok to have alar reduction. The long answer is...it depends on the location of the juvederm that was injected. If the juvederm was injected into the alar region then yes it will affect the outcome. It can still be done but it will change the outcome of how it looks from a cosmetic standpoint. If the juvederm was used in other areas of the nose, then perhaps the alar reduction might improve the overall outcome. Hope this helps.
Juvederm and surgery
It should be fine to proceed with surgery. I would discuss the Juvederm treatment with your surgeon as to how it will affect the look after surgery. It will depend on how much and exactly where the product was placed. The surgery is permanent, but the Juvederm is not.
