Can fillers correct and fix a crooked nose? (photo)
I have a slightly crooked nose. Can fillers help to correct them? Thanks!
Fillers have traditionally been used as a non surgical option for nose augmentation in what has been commonly referred to as injection rhinoplasty. In recent years the popularity of fillers for this indication has declined due to the reported potential complication of blindness as well as the emergence of the popularity of nose Threadlifts.
A detailed assessment of the nature of the deviated nose is important before deciding if it can be corrected with the use of fillers. If the deformity is fixed and extreme correction would probably be best served through a surgical rhinoplasty.
Assuming that correction is possible with fillers the choice of a correct filler is important as well as the skilll and experience of the doctor. The filler chosen should have a high lifting capacity and not easily subjected to deformation by pressure so that it stays in the correct position. The filler should usually last about 9- 12 months assuming a non permanent filler is used.
It is also important for the doctor to discuss with the patient whether the likelihood of a full correction is possible. In some cases combination with nose threads may lead to a better aesthetic outcome.
Hope this helps.
