When considering an injectable nose job, it’s important to remember that injectables can’t fix all nasal issues, so there will always be a need for surgery in order to achieve a permanent solution. Accordingly, doctors are still searching for the injectable holy grail: a safe, permanent filler.
Currently, researchers are working with finely ground cartilage, the firm but flexible connective tissue found throughout the body (including the nose and ears), as an injectable material.
Unlike fat, which can absorb unpredictably when injected into the nose, a patient’s own cartilage has potential because there’s no risk of rejection. Additionally, it won’t absorb as much as other fillers, so it can produce permanent results.
Even if injectable cartilage is deemed safe and effective, don’t seek out the procedure just yet. This innovation is years away from your doctor’s office.
