Q: I have never been happy with my nose. I think it’s too big, round and undefined. I am still a teenager. Is there any way that I can change my shape without surgery, or will it change as I grow older? How long should I wait? And if I get surgery, what kind of rhinoplasty and what will it cost?
A: Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is an excellent option for dorsal augmentation in a temporary fashion. Also in patients with medium to thin skin, it is possible to have a moderate degree of refinement created in the tip of the nose. However, for patients with very thick skin, the result will be very limited as the filler will not be thick enough to show definition through the skin.
