I have corrected this kind of issue with Radiesse injections, but it is not easy. I would wait until at least 6 months have gone by before considering putting any filler in the nose. The reason is that there is still swelling that is resolving several months after the surgery.
The tip of the nose is made up of a pair of arched cartilages (Lower lateral cartilages) which acts as stiffeners. When the tip is too bulbous just enough of the arch is removed from each nostril to refine the tip. If TOO much is removed, on inspiration, the arches are too weak and collapse, pinching the nostril.
The repair consists of increasing the tip stiffness usually by placing cartilage grafts (? ear donor) under the arches to stiffen them. this is best done when the swelling has gone down significantly (6-8 months). I am not a big fan of injecting fillers in the nose.
