Temporary Injectable Fillers for the Nose

I just completed an interview today with an independent journalist here in San Diego who was researching the topic of injectable filler use for the nose. This idea has actually been around for many years but has been gaining increasing media attention. It has been called among other things the non-surgical nose job as well as injection rhinoplasty and lunchtime rhinoplasty. These names and labels all refer to the technique of injecting a dermal filler (like Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm) into the nose to reshape and contour. It is not a bad option in those patients who want to bridge the gap and buy time before they ultimately undergo an actual rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty. We have had many rhinoplasty patients over the years here in San Diego opt for this procedure and then end up having their rhinoplasty performed after the filler has gone way (6-9 months typically for the temporary fillers mentioned).
