I’m African American and I’ve had a Rhinoplasty. I choose not to get a nose implant. I have to get Radiesse filler in the bridge to build it up, but it causes my profile to look long and flat. Can Radiesse build a tip or is there any other none surgical way to build the tip of the nose?

A: nasal tip filler

There are not many good long term options for defining the nasal tip, especially in patients with thick skin, such as African-Americans. Radiesse may temporarily give a reasonable contour but this is subject to movement and degradation over time. A revision surgery requiring likely a cartilage graft from you nose or ear, will likely give you the best long-lasting contour.

I suggest seeing a specialist in your area who performs revision rhinoplasties, such as Dr. Gunter.

Best wishes,
