I think the first thing to mention is that dermal filler in the nose is one of the most complicated and risky areas to treat on the face. The tissue overlying the nose is very thin meaning that blood vessels are close to the surface and close to the area where filler is injected. The tip of the nose is one of the most difficult areas in the nose to treat as the tip is so tense with little space to place the filler.
When we treat cheeks with dermal filler we treat deep down under blood vessels. There is plenty of room for the filler to swell if it needs to without affecting important blood vessels or nerves.
If swelling occurs after dermal filler in the nose there is a chance that the filler could compress an artery or vein which could affect the blood supply to the skin nearby. We would have to dissolve the filler in this case.
Nose dermal filler after rhinoplasty (‘nose job’)
After nose surgery there is scar tissue in the nose which means that there is even less space to place the dermal filler. Risks of compression of a blood vessel are increased.
I feel that if you want to have dermal filler in the tip of the nose, expecially after a rhinoplasty, you should see a plastic surgeon who can treat you if they feel comfortable. If you are in the Melbourne area then Mr Peter Callan comes highly recommended.
I hope that answers your question but please feel free to get in touch if you have anything else you’d like to ask 🙂
