Despite the claims of some web sites, the “liquid Rhinoplasty” is not a new technique. Surgeons have been using various fillers to reshape and contour the nose without surgery for decades. What is new is the quality and durability of some of the new fillers, and their ability to soften hard features, and correct small defects without the need for surgery.
The real skill of the plastic surgeon is knowing how and when to use fillers such as Juvederm to reshape a nose safely. Patients also need to be reminded that the procedure is temporary, and adds some volume to the nose. Foe some patients, it’s exactly the right choice.
