Abstract

Purpose of review

The use of injectable fillers for nonsurgical rhinoplasty has increased tremendously over the past decade. This review describes the most commonly used fillers and their indications in the context of recent reports of both their successes and failures.

Recent findings

Hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite are the two most commonly used fillers for injection. Recent studies have found that most injectable fillers are met with success and patient satisfaction, but vascular complications are still a serious problem of which physicians should be wary.

Summary

Injectable fillers should continue to be considered for patients on a case-by-case basis, but physicians should be knowledgeable of the various filler types, their indications, and injection technique to prevent serious complications.
