Nose Filler horror Stories

Why you should reconsider a liquid rhinoplasty???

Here are some photos of how a non-surgical rhinoplasty can go terribly wrong.

HORROR STORY 1:

So you’ve seen those nurses and doctors injecting copious amounts of filler into the nose and making them look BIG and not noticing the possible blood supply issues you could create. Well, here we are! This lady had treatment to her nose and wanted a lift. The nose later resolved but within 3 months of her treatment, the nose looked like the left and then the right. This is a complication that occurred because someone injected semi-permanent filler in the tip of the nose. There are many small blood vessels in the tip of the nose and it can cause a blockage of the blood supply. The result was the loss of skin tissue. Problem was fixed though over time as the doctor was able to treat the patient with antibiotics, steroids and hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatment.

HORROR STORY 2:

This patient had radiesse injected into the nose. What happened was that some of the filler went into the eyeball blood vessels. Blurred vision was the only real complication apart from the obvious complication of lesions to the skin. The lesions resolved and vision was back to 20/20 in both eyes but it goes to show, injecting filler is no mean feat and has complications. Do not get it done by someone who hasn’t gone through medical school training and hasn’t performed these procedures multiple times. Things can go wrong with any cosmetic doctor, but it depends on how you manage the problem. This patient with antibiotics, steroid injections and oxygen therapy came out well! Go science and Go medicine!

1st and foremost no rhinoplasty is perfect. We need to educate the population that no surgeon can give millimeter perfect results because allot of the rhinoplasty procedure depends on the way your body heals and whether there is scar tissue formation. Similarly with liquid rhinoplasty, allot of patients complain about the filler dissolving too quick or the filler moving, or even worse that the filler did nothing.
