Silikon-1000, an off-label permanent filler, may be used by experienced physicians for nasal tip widening after previous surgery

I read your query and reviewed your photos which are limited for evaluation:

Well-performed Silikon-1000 injections may lead to correction of nasal bossae by adding volume back to your tip. The expertise of your surgeon is imperative for achieving a desired result.

Since you have thin skin, you may be best leaving further surgery for a last-resort.

Hope this is helpful for you.

Addressing contour irregularities with nonsurgical rhinoplasty

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is well-suited at treating small contour defects like the one you are describing.  There are some risks associated with injections into the tip, and it's important to choose an experienced physician.  Hyaluronic acid fillers are a good option because they are reversible.

Non surgical rhinoplasty after rhinoplasty

Dear djnosey,

  • A filler will help hide the bossa on the left
  • The surgeon should be very conservative in this, you may want to try something temporary before going to a permanent filler

Fillers in the nasal tip

Fillers placed in the nasal tip are a bad idea.  They are not FDA approved for that use and can cause necrosis of the tip skin.  Bossa have to be surgically corrected
