Is Radiesse suitable for nose reshaping or is surgery the only option?

Q:

Is Radiesse suitable to straighten and remove a small bump on my nose?

A:

A full consultation is necessary to determine your best options. I often use temporary fillers to reshape the nose and camouflage a small dorsal hump or increase tip projection. I prefer to use softer fillers like Juvederm or Restylane in the nose. I think that Radiesse is a little thick for such a fine area as the nose. The upside is that fillers often last many years in the nose and recovery is much quicker.

A:

Radiesse is used to hide imperfections in the nose commonly after surgery. Occasionally a small amount of scar tissue may develop that will make slight differences in the two sides. It is not able to remove a bump, but try to hide it visually. 

A:

Radiesse For Nasal Reshaping- Radiesse is not a good option in the nose. It’s an excellent long-term biodegradable filler.  Radiesse is not good for augmentation in the nose, as there is very little to no subcutaneous tissue. Use a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm, Restylane or Voluma as they are biodegradable over 6-12 months.
