Hi, I had a Rhinoplasty done approx 11 years ago due to a car accident. In the last 12 months I have noticed my nostrils seem to have collapsed alot more (they were always slightly collapsed after the surgery). But its now at the point where I cannot breath through my nose at night. I was already considering non surgical rhinoplasty to smooth out some other lumps and bumps on the nose, but was wondering if the fillers could help with the collapsed nostrils issue as well, from a breathing perspective?
Many thanks for your time,


It is unlikely that fillers would help in any way with the functioning of the nose or helping you to breathe. Fillers to the nose can only help to smooth out deviations in the nose from an aesthetic perspective.
