mrgym, tanny I think you can see some pictures of Kiora's work with dermal fillers to correct noses.

I was just going through their website and saw a new page for nose and chin work. its under the cosmetic injectables heading.

The before and after pictures are quite impressive.

[quote=Heidi42;9867]Wouldn't the fillers just make the nose look BIGGER?


Afterall it is a 'filler'[/quote]



Hi Heidi,

The dermal fillers are amazingly versatile when it comes to correcting or enhancing the nose.

It is my belief that a lot of so-called "large" noses are prominent not because of their size but because of a hump or irregularity that makes them stand out from the rest of the facial features.

These humps can often be beautifully addressed by just some small amounts of filler to straighten the profile. The end result is a nice straight nose that appears smaller despite the added volume. When I show some of my portfolio photos showing nose straightening to patients most think the nose has been made smaller.

There is an element of psychology to it but a straight nose appears to be smaller than a crooked nose.


For people with flat noses, often in asian patients, the opposite is true. They often have very weak nose bridges and this can be enlarged with fillers to give a much stronger nose that better balances the (often high) forehead and other facial features.


Dermal fillers for the nose are surprisingly flexible in the number of problems they can improve. Almost equally importantly because the nose moves very little the longevity in this area tends to be excellent on average 12-18 months.

As long as patients can't wiggle their noses like Samantha from bewitched I often expect to get almost 2 years out of this simlpe 10 minute procedure.

Holy, Thats like 100 posts in 15 minutes doctornev. Are you making up for your month long abscence?


Which filler for you prefer using in the nose. Is something harder like restylane more suitable. Since the bridge of the nose is hard with bone anyway I guess you don't need to use a soft filler. It will probably feel more natural is you use something really hard in the nose anyway.

Default Juvederm for rinoplasty

Does juvederm work as well to correct the nose?


Can anyone here who has had the procedure done comment on how long it lasts? Some websites are claiming 18 months! This is a bit strange because I have always been told fillers last around 8 months.

Is this because juvederm lasts longer?

Juvederm works even better


But then I am horribly biased. Any of the temporary hyaluronic gels work well.

I am a bit shy of using longer acting dermal fillers because they aren't reversible.


Theoretically the tip of the nose is vulnerable to compromises in the blood supply. If you accidentally occlude the major arteries to the tip of the nose with a dermal filler it is nice to have the ability to dissolve the diller and restore blood to the nose tip.

Without this ability I guess you are theoretically looking at the risk of causing permanent ischaemic damage to a rather prominent part of the face.

Hi Guys,

I'm from Melbourne, and I am thinking about getting a nose job as my nose is a bit long. It's not big, there is no hump, it's not wide. It's just a bit too long, so from the side it appears that I have a big nose. Would I need rhinoplasty to 'shorten' my nose, or would restylane correct this problem?

Also, what are the rough prices I would be looking at for rhinoplasty usually?

Sorry, I've only just started looking into it and I have absolutely no clue about any of it, so need help please!

Sonya, as there is a bump, i guess you have to go for Rhino. It depends on doctors to doctors..If someone is a specialist in it, then he/she would have charged a huge amount but good results.. If you can travel to NY then there are many famous rhino surgeon are available..Some surgeons also makes the arrangement for your stay.. You can apply for the free consultation from their websites...Dr Anthony D, [url]www.drjenniferlevine.com[/url], [url]www.drphilipmiler.com[/url] and many more..

I have heard of people using charges to correct the nose. $ 800 to fill vs $ 15,000 for its value in rhinoplasty give him a chance.
