This patient was an excellent candidate for a nonsurgical rhinoplasty. The nasal area between the eyes is called the radix. In this patient, the radix was deep, creating the illusion of a nasal bump and a large nose in profile. From the frontal view, a deep radix will make the nose appear short. With the addition of the filler Restylane to the radix, it brought her entire nose into balance with the remainder for facial features. It minimizes the nasal bump, made her nose appear smaller from profile, and elongated her nose from the frontal view. This was all accomplished during a 15-minute nonsurgical rhinoplasty.
