You can treat a drooping nose tip in a number of ways but, broadly speaking, it can be treated with dermal filler, anti-wrinkle injections or surgery.
Anti-wrinkle injections for a drooping nose tip
The photo below shows the muscles of the lower face. Between the base of the nose and the upper lip is a muscle called ‘depressor septi’. This muscle helps to pull the nose tip downwards and in some people can occur when smiling. We can treat this muscle with a small amount of anti-wrinkle units to prevent the nose tip from drooping when smiling and at rest. It is a subtle effect. The effects will last approximately 2 months.
Dermal filler to treat a drooping nose tip
Dermal filler can be placed in the nose and at the base of the nose to prevent the nose from drooping. This is a riskier procedure than anti-wrinkle injections because the blood supply to the nose tip is limited and there is a risk of needing to dissolve the filler after it has been injected. Have a read of our ‘non-surgical rhinoplasty‘ page for more information on nose dermal fillers.
