Postoperative Fillers Reduce Revision Rates in Rhinoplasty

Dermal Fillers After Rhinoplasty

A recent paper by La Belle Forme owner and Medical Director Taimur Shoaib and others aimed to review the successful use of dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid) fillers post-rhinoplasty. Minor imperfections following rhinoplasty are high and can cause distress and anxiety to a patient who has been concerned about the appearance of their nose for many years and is understandably hoping to have the best result possible.

Whilst surgical corrections can be made, a number of patients would not benefit from another surgery.  For these patients, dermal fillers may be the ideal solution.

Out of 800 patients who had undergone a rhinoplasty 85 of those had a follow-up treatment using dermal fillers

Patients may have believed that fillers would be a short-term fix, similar to a non-surgical nose job and that the corrections to their nose would soon abate requiring further fillers to be used. However, as the paper outlines, dermal fillers after rhinoplasty can be long-lasting, perhaps even permanent.
