I had a surgical rhinoplasty when I was 17 to get rid of a bump on the bridge of my nose. As you can see from my before picture, my nose still was nowhere near perfect because I had an additional bump the surgeon didn't touch and my nose has never been straight. Anyway, I thought the non surgical rhinoplasty might be a good idea to get a sense of what my nose might look like straightened so that later on I might get the surgery again. The doctor who did the non surgical procedure was very nice. He used about 3/4 of a syringe of Juvederm but when I looked in the mirror after the procedure I cried. My nose looked huge and beak-like (I have an aquiline nose as it is, which I hate). After the swelling went down, I calmed down and the doctor pointed out that the nose was much straighter but it still isn't as straight as I would like. He didn't want to touch the tip because he was afraid I might think it was too big and he advised returning in two weeks for a follow up. I'm curious to hear any doctor's thoughts who do the procedure about what the doctor can do to give me a straighter nose. From some angles the nose looks straight but from others it looks bigger than it did before, which is what really bugs me. I kind of feel like my nose looked better before! I was under the impression that this procedure gives the illusion of a smaller nose even though filler is being added but that's not the case with me, in my opinion.

Very nice and patient doctor. His bedside manner was great--i'm just not sure how experienced in this particular procedure he is.
