.. was happy for 3 years. when swelling went down completely, cartlige in the tip became too visible.can see its actual shape.saw 2 other surgeons.they refused to do revision cause it might look worse after(my skin is very thin).advice was : juvederm,to smooth the tip,make it roundish..want to hear other opinions from more experienced surgeons..and will using a filler correct exposed nostrils? (surgery is not the answer cause won't be able to breathe after thanks p.s don't mind to top up filler

Hello. Dermal fillers are a great way to softly define and correct irregularities in the nose. The safest product to inject is a hyaluronic acid filler that can be reversed. Longer lasting dermal fillers can be injected once you are happy with results. You would have a nice result with dermal fillers.
Thank you for the question and photos. Dermal fillers can be used to reshape and refine the nose even after a rhinoplasty procedure. Small irregularities can be masked by a thin layer of filler that helps support the skin up off of the cartilage framework. Both Juviderm and Voluma can be used. I do recommend starting with a hyaluronic filler that is short term just in case you don't like the result. Voluma is a good long term solution as is fat transfer. Fat transfer is natural and it can be used to thicken the soft tissue under the skin.All the best,Dr. Remus Repta
