Can I get filler such as Juvederm Ultra Plus in my nasal tip, even though I have had rhinoplasty and have a silicone implant?

I heard that one should never get fillers if one has a silicon implant due to risk of infection. However, others tell me it is ok. Which is it? Is it safe?

Juvederm in the Nasal Tip

I would not suggest you attempt to have this type of risky procedure performed as the possible side effects outweigh the chance of a cosmetic improvement. Best, Dr. green

Juvederm in Nasal Tip Post Rhinoplasty with Silicone Implant

Dear girlfromla, I personally would not take the risk of performing Juvederm Injections in a patient with a silicone implant. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.

I think that "better safe than sorry" applies here.  I might possibly consider it if the silicone implant is a distance away from your tip, but if not I'd personally think the risks are too high.  Of course discuss this with your surgeon for the best advice and good luck.
