Nasal Depressed Scar
It is possible to push out scars in the face and nose with fillers. Its best to be evaluated in person because this can be a tricky area due to blood flow issues.
Best to seek a specialist in your area for evaluation.I hope this was helpful.

Thank you for the picture! To answer your question - yes, it can be filled. The nose is particularly tricky, specially after MOHS surgery as the blood supply is limited. There are combination treatments that tend to work best depending on the size and depth of the defect. As with anything in the nose, going slowly works best with fillers as the scar tissue tends to try and tether the skin down. A lot of these questions can be answered during your consultation with an in-person examination as at that point your doc would be able to tell you what to expect and what combination of treatments would work best. Best of luck! I hope some of this helps.
