nose reduction using injections

Postby Darkskin1 » Tue Mar 10, 2009 3:00 am

Is it possible to reduce the size of the fleshy part of the nose using injections like steroid and enzymes - or is the only way to correct noses, fillers?

hi
i have had some success reducing the fleshy part of the nose with steroids. it takes several sessions and the results are subtle, but it seems like it can be done. i think the results are permanent, but i'm not 100% positive.
i've done probably 40 or 50 people so far and I have not seen any side effects or problems.
hope that helps

injections damage scar tissue

Postby Thatluckydog » Fri May 08, 2009 6:45 am

I had a non surgical with radiesse done and the tip had too much put in and then the steroid shots were put afterwards to reduce the radiesse and now my tissue in my nose tip has drooped and shifted and has dents and looks like the cartilage is protruding out. Sometimes it shifts around and I dont know what to do please help. It has thinned out my tissue in my nose and looks wierd and the tip is droopy and pushed down. My nose looks wider and flatter because the tissue on the bridge has deflated because of the steroid shot.

hi,
i'm sorry you're going through this.
if you can, send me profile and front on pictures and i can tell you with more accuracy what can be done. you can send to arivkin@westsideaesthetics.com.
you may need to have filler put in there, but less than you had before.
tough to tell for sure without pictures.
