Droopy nose can be fixed by surgery with defining the tip and elevating it. You can try fillers to temporarily lift up the tip but it will not last long. RegardsDr J
Rhinoplasty for the droopy nasal tip
A closed rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish lifting the droopy tip, reducing the hanging columella, refining the tip, and shaving down the dorsal hump, with all of the incisions placed on the inside of the nose. It's also important to release the depressor septa ligament which pulls the tip down when smiling. For more information and many examples of droopy nose repair in our practice, please see the link and the video below
Would I need surgery or the injection type of a nose job to fix an uneven droopy nose
In my opinion I do not think a filler to your nose will pick the tip up. I think it is better to have the surgery to correct what bothers you
If you want your nose to lift, then you are probably better off getting a rhinoplasty. Good luck with your decision to move forward.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a tip refining rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can
accomplish this by trimming, suturing, and reshaping the cartilage in your
lower nose. Cartilage grafts may also be used to help improve tip refinement.
You may also benefit from a cephalic rotation of your tip to turn up your tip
slightly. The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation
with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in
Best wishes and good luck.

Surgical rhinoplasty verse non-surgical rhinoplasty
There are different indications for surgery and non-surgical rhinoplasty. In my practice surgery is way more often needed than injections. Non-surgical rhinoplasty works well for some types of nasal bumps and some types of crooked noses. It can make a droopy nose less so but usually surgery can do a better job. From your picture, it appears your columella needs to be raised and this can really only be done by surgery.
