Surgical nose job
A surgical rhinoplasty is required to build up the bridge of the nose and lift the droopy tip on a permanent basis. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is only temporary, is not FDA approved for that application, and can have serious complications.
Based on your
photos, the only safe and effective way of refining the tip of your nose is
with surgical rhinoplasty. The width of the tip of your nose is caused by
a combination of the thickness of your skin, and the size and shape of your tip
cartilage. Without improving the shape and size of your underlying tip
cartilage it will be difficult to achieve significant refinement.
Am I a candidate for a nonsurgical nose job?
Dear Janay: Non surgical nose jobs are a way to temporarily change the contour of the nose by adding fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm which are reversible Hyaluronic Acid fillers. They add volume to the nose and can change the profile and even add height to the tip of the nose and columella when used judiciously. They are used to evaluate whether or not a patient would like the changes that a traditional rhinoplasty could obtain, or to correct any contour changes that exist after rhinoplasty or trauma instead of a surgical procedure. The fillers are not FDA approved for this use but can be used with caution. Fillers will resorb with time and will need to be replaced to maintain correction until a formal surgical rhinoplasty can be performed for permanent correction.
