How does rhinoplasty compare to fillers or fat grafting to the nose?
Because of the ability to accurately alter the framework of the nose, rhinoplasty is more precise than fillers or fat grafting to the nose. Fillers are non-permanent solutions to nasal deformities, but can give the individual an idea of what enhancement of part of the nose can look like. Fat grafts are more permanent than fillers. Fillers and fat grafting to the nose, though simpler and faster with much less downtime, have to be injected with much care. Inadvertent injection of material into an important vessel can lead to rare complications such as skin necrosis or, in severe cases, visual problems. A discussion with your plastic surgeon will enable you to make the best informed choice with regards to your goals and requirements
