Should I do injections for a collapsed sidewall before Revision Rhinoplasty?

I have a collapsed sidewall from my primary surgery. I will eventually have a revision, but I am indecisive about what I want for my tip. I may hang for one more year before a revision, but should I get a filler injection on my sidewall now? It looks terrible and I dont want to live another year with this nose.

It's possible to have filler injections for temporary improvements instead of a rhinoplasty.  Although fillers only last a few months up to a year, for someone who is trying to hold off on surgery for a time, they can be a nice trade-off, simple to perform, and relatively inexpensive.  Filler can have side effects, like anything else in medicine, so be sure to discuss the pros and cons with your doctor.
