Nasal reconstruction using 20 mg/ml cross-linked hyaluronic acid.

Abstract

According to American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), 200,924 people had rhinoplasties in 2005. Patients typically have surgical rhinoplasty to correct unsightly noses resulting from trauma, surgery, or heredity. Several alternatives presently exist for patients considering surgical rhinoplasty. These include injections of botulinum toxins to correct the shape of the nasal tip and the use of various fillers to correct contour and profile defects. This article presents a simple and effective alternative using hyaluronic acid for some patients requiring nasal recontouring. The procedure offers patients the opportunity to avoid the risks and expense associated with surgical correction.
