Dermal fillers (with juvederm as a possibility but radiesse the probable choice) can correct minor defects after surgery. While dermal fillers are an easier options, patient selection is key.

Juvederm or other hyaluronic acid fillers work well for minor irregularities both before and after rhinoplasty. HA fillers can be expected to last around 6-9 months for this purpose. If longer duration is desired then permanentt microdroplet silicone injections could be considered.

Fillers are best used to refine minor irregularities after rhinoplasty  surgery. The fillers are easier than revision surgery, but the advantages and disadvantages of each should be considered.

Dermal fillers are often used on the nose to correct small defects, be it from birth, trauma or previous rhinoplasty. They are limited in their use but may balance out small irregularities. You want to make sure the injector has experience in this region.

Your nose needs to be completely healed. This means you have to be patient or your surgeon is injecting a moving target

Use of Filler for Rhinoplasty Revision

Filler is best used for small touchups;  in example, a subtle depression related to how the bone healed.  I have also used it for patients with terribly twisted noses where after surgery there is still a slight difference from side to side.  If it is anything more than a slight deformity, it is best to consider revision surgery.
