Do you think Fillers are better in enhancing the nose than rhinoplasty?

I had filler in my nose to get rid of my bump. I was super sceptical it wouldn’t work at all, but I was surprised. I was completely happy with my result. I will eventually still have a rhinoplasty but this is great to do the job in the mean time.

Thanks for the info! I also learned that it makes for a good option for those who wish to see what they would look like if they will undergo surgery. Learned a lot here too.

But thank you for sharing that experience. I am now keen on trying that one out first. Just to see how I would look like should I opt for the permanent solution.

I’ve also had filler in my nose and it wasn’t a dramatic change. In my case Rhinoplasty would be the better option except that my anatomy makes it extremely difficult 

Hi! In what way did your facial anatomy make it hard for you to get a rhinoplasty? Sorry, I'm just curious because I am also wary that I might be exposed to those problems as well. I want to be as prepared as I can seeing all these scary outcomes being reported in the news nowadays. I just want to enhance it, and not get the wrong attention because of it looking so "made up".

I think I would be too scared to get rhinoplasty as much as I would love to. There are too many people who are unhappy with their results. It's such a complex surgery and you can't hide your face if you have any complications. Unlike boobs, which can be hidden if you're unhappy. I think if filler is able to fix your nose, go for it!

Filler to the nose also carries HUGE risks one being blindness.  And we are seeing this more because more people are doing it then ever before.  So whilst and excellent option for many one that is not just an easy fix with no care.

WOW! That is crazy. I had no idea... is there any other areas that have this kind of risk?

Temples, cheek, forehead, nose, frown line and nasolabial folds are the highest risk but all areas should be considered a risk because of individual arterial anastomoses.  Of all areas noses have the highest reported cases of blindness probably because of the proximity of the dorsal nasal artery to the ophthalmic artery and it only takes a small amount of filler to displace and travel to occlude this that causes the vision loss. It’s rare but it’s still a risk that should be discussed especially because its permanent there have been no cases whereby the vision has been returned.

not going to lie - after the stuff ive seen at conferences, this complication scares the crap out of me. I have had filler in my nose though but it is concerning and I would only ever have it done by a highly experienced injector who has experience with it

Reading this is a little upsetting as I have never been warned of any of this when getting fillers. 

Did you have filler in the nose?
The risk of blindness is usually only associated with the areas around the eyes and nose. 

There is always a risk with injectables though and you should be appropriately informed about the risks

I was reading that the risk of blindness can happen even from lip fillers: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/beauty/cosmetic-surgery/australian-society-of-plastic-surgeons-warns-dermal-fillers-can-cause-blindness-following-shocking-new-south-korean-study/news-story/719bc720d263f5162241e979d5877aad

"Prof Ashton said blindness from filler can occur following an injection anywhere on the face, not just around the delicate eye area. Even lip injections, which are hugely popular among young women, can cause blindness."

I’ve had fillers injected in my nose and needing a top up scared AF it may cause blindness rather have vision then aesthetic enhancement.

can someone answer with rhinoplasty surgery is there a risk of blindness? I’ve asked Dr. pincock who did my primary and said has never came across a patient who had vision problems pistop other than swelling around the eyes.

I'm also nervous to get my lips redone. I was also looking at cheeks and nose but won't be anymore. Risking blindness no matter how small the risk is something I don't think I can be comfortable with.

Of course. Your vascular system has multiple pathways and anastomoses. It only takes one piece of filler to displace and through retrograde flow end up at the ophthalmic artery. The likelihood of this from an area such as a lip is highly unlikely however not impossible.

@donatella would be better suited to respond.  

I think the nose carries a higher risk as @donatella mentioned.  With cheeks I’m fine not really scared.  

 

Ive been to several clinics and all  the nurses would  refuse to go anywhere near my nose. They themselves said you better off going to see a doctor as injecting in this area carries a higher risk.  I need fillers between my eyebrow area as there’s a deep crease that should have been taken out when I underwent primary rhinoplasty instead got deeper :( 

 

Cheeks and lips carry a lower risk. Just go to a injector that is experienced.

But as Don said, it's still possible just highly unlikely. Just not sure, for myself, it's worth the risk. I couldn't live with myself if i impaired my vision purely for my own vanity.

I have been to very highly regarded injectors in the past and ended up with poor results. Experience isn't everything. Everyone makes mistakes and every body is different.
