Using hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane, or even thicker and longer-lasting injectables, such as Perlane or Radiesse, your plastic surgeon or dermatologist will inject the areas that you’re wishing to correct to camouflage any concerns. “There are a number of fillers used, but this technique can only correct minor problems,” says Los Angeles plastic surgeon Geoffery R. Keyes, MD. The filler acts as a spackle of sorts to soften the appearance of any dents, bumps and humps. In less than 30 minutes, the results are seen (there may be some swelling, redness or bruising, which will subside over a few days). Keep in mind that your nose will physically be larger-although it may not look any bigger-than it was pre-injection since the filler eliminates unwanted bumps by adding volume.
An injectable nose job is not for everyone, especially those with major nasal deformities or those wanting a smaller nose. However, it is good for those who want to test-drive potential rhinoplasty results or those who have minor indentations, bumps, hollows, low bridges or asymmetry. It also works well to build up a flat bridge or to upturn a droopy tip. “Injectables can help to temporarily fix some problems as well as post-surgery irregularities that do not necessitate additional surgeries, says West Palm Beach, FL, facial plastic surgeon Michael L. Schwartz, MD.
