Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Q: Will Botox help my nose from pointing down when I smile? My nose points down very far when I smile, it looks like a totally different nose. It also slightly dips down when I talk. Will Botox help this and make a noticeable difference? Would a filler to add a lift to my tip also help in my nose staying put when smiling? I’m hoping that my only hope isn’t just rhinoplasty. I’m looking to try non-permanent solutions first Thanks

A: Yes. Yes. And, thanks for sharing your photos!

The muscles in your nose will produce the effects you show concern about. An injectable muscle relaxer such as Botox and others will help rebalance these muscles to give you a trial at a surgical rhinoplasty.
Injectable fillers will also provide up to a year to “see if you like it” augmented rhinoplasty. It can even be dissolved if you don’t like the appearance.
You have very beautiful features and should:
1. Consult with a talented and skilled, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial ENT Surgeon for all your non-surgical, minimally invasive and surgical options.
2. You may find that a surgical rhinoplasty will provide a better appearance than “trying out a non-permanent” solution; as the two, can do different things.
I hope this is helpful! I wish you all the best!
