Do you have a saddle nose deformity but are worried about surgery? Non-surgical treatment options like dermal fillers are available for saddle nose repair to enhance your appearance. Here is what you need to know about dermal fillers for saddle nose repair.
Saddle Nose Bridge and Tip Enhancement with Dermal Fillers
With a saddle nose deformity, the bridge and tip can sink downward due to excessive cartilage removal. Saddle nose repair can be achieved through dermal fillers to elevate the nose bridge. When injected into the nose tip, it can offer greater definition for a more symmetrical nasal appearance. Results can be noticeable immediately after the procedure.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last for Saddle Nose Repair?
There are various types of dermal fillers available for saddle nose repair. Many fillers can last approximately 9-12 months or longer. Additional injections may be needed to maintain results.
Recovery for Dermal Fillers After Saddle Nose Repair
Most daily activities can be resumed immediately after dermal fillers are used for saddle nose repair. Alcohol should be avoided for at least the first week of recovery. Drinking alcohol can worsen swelling and bruising by increasing blood flow to the face. Dermal fillers need about two to three weeks to fully stabilize the shape and size of the nose. Exercise and facial massage can move the fillers and distort your results.
