Tip Removed After Infection from Revision Rhinoplasty Tip Graft- How Long Before a Non Surgical?

Tip removed after infection from revision rhinoplasty tip graft- how long before a non surgical filler? My last surgery was July 5 and I have a dent on the left side and no tip. My doc said 6-8 months before another revision. I'd like to avoid a surgical revision.

A photo would be necessary to judge your candidacy for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty treatment.

The dent on the left side of your nose may be improved with an injectable filler treatment, but in general, nasal injections are not helpful for adding tip projection. Feel free to re ask your question with photos for more specific opinions.

Tip infection and revision

If you had a recent tip revision and subsequent tip graft infection, you probably want things to "cool down" for a few months minimum before undergoing any further procedures.  It really depends upon the quality of the tissues.
