From bumps and humps to a tip that’s too bulbous or wide, the variety of problems that can affect the nose are endless. Injectables and fillers can be used to smooth out minor nasal flaws while a nose job (rhinoplasty) is still the method of choice for longterm improvement and making a major aesthetic change.
By placing hyaluronic acid into the nose (an off-label use), small depressions as well as humps and bumps can be made to look as though they no longer exist. The fillers “build” up the nose to improve the way it looks but not how it functions. Performed in just minutes, the procedure is relatively painless and the results can last upward of one year. Even though the results of an injectable nose job are not permanent, they can be seen immediately.
If you’re dealing with larger nasal irregularities, rhinoplasty is your best option to produce the results you’re looking for. Nasal surgery is the only permanent way to correct any nasal flaws that may be bothering you. Your plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon can perform either an open or closed nose job to modify the bone, cartilage or both to best address your needs, which an injectable nose job cannot. By correcting the nose physically, the profile of the face will improve and surrounding features may “pop” more, too.
