What happens if I dissolve filler in my nose? Swelling, bruising? Is it still too soon?

A patient asked 3 years ago
I had revision rhinoplasty done 7 months ago. After developing irregularities & not wanting another revision… I had Voluma applied to the irregularities 2 weeks ago. The irregularities are definitely improved, but now the area seems like it was too filled. Although the irregularities are masked… it looks too “full”. I wanted to give it time for swelling to go down so i waited till 2 weeks, but its not going away. I do not want to have all of the product dissolved, but some of it.

Dissolving Extra Filler in Nose

 
Hi and thank you for your question! You have already waited for 2 weeks so there shouldn’t be much swelling left at this time, but you really don’t stand to loose much if you give it a few more days just in case. If the issue persists, dissolving the extra filler with enzyme is an option, and when done carefully, it shouldn’t result in removal of all or too much of the filler. I hope it helps and good luck!
