Hello! Would Like to Find a More Permanent Route to Fix/soften Crooked Portion/indent Upper Portion of Nose? (photo)

I have crookedness at the top of my nose and I have had restylane injections before & the outcome was wonderful. I was looking for a more permanent solution,because as many probably know, going thru the injections time & time again can be disconcerting and costly. But really, any information that will lead me to a more permanent non-surgical solution will be greatly, greatly appreciated. I am awful at photoshop and so in 2nd pic I tried to squiggle the area I usually get injected with. Thank you.

Permanent solution for crooked/indented nose

The safest and most effective permanent solution would be rhinoplasty with a rhinoplasty specialist.  There is no safe, permanent non-surgical way to address the cosmetic concerns you have.  Permanent fillers have an unacceptably high risk of complications and would not be advisable in this area.

     I think that you could benefit from a rhinoplasty to straighten your nose.  I am not sure I would offer a nonsurgical option to you, because the rhinoplasty has the potential to produce a much more satisfactory result.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Rhinoplasty for crooked nose

 Rhinoplasty for a crooked and fractured nose usually involves osteotomies to realign the nasal bones, a spreader graft placed underneath the upper lateral cartilage on the concave side, and small morselized  cartilage grafts used as a camouflage where there is an indentation.

Silikon-1000 is a permanent off-label filler that may be used by experienced physicians for non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures.

We cannot determine your candidacy for silicone nasal injections based on the limited photo you posted. I would suggest consulting with a physician familiar with microdroplet silicone injections, after your temporary filler has dissipated.

Hope this is helpful for you.
