Besides skin damage, what structural complications could arise from a non surgical nose job done using improper injection technique?
Accent Laser















In such case can soft tissue reaction cause cartilage malposition or accentuate any internal deformity and as a result a permanent disfigurement?

Besides skin loss, you could have a bad result that could not be corrected by surgery. Dont put fillers in a nose, unless it is a tiny amount done by a board certified plastic surgeon -- (more)

A sincere thanks to all the experts for the input. My results with the fillers were good but it's the way nose has settled back after fillers have dissolved that doesn't look right.Needed to know that ,in general,would it be correct to say that whether injections done inside or outside the nose, the needle trauma should not impact the nasal tissues so much as to alter the cartilage position or any other aspect of the nasal shape? Thank you.

Regarding: "Improper technique"

Well, it's not going to change the structure of the nose bones or the cartilage. It could really screw up other contents of soft tissue envelope of nose if it has to be surgically removed. Why? Because native soft tissue contents often end up having to be removed along with what ever filler is in there they are trying to remove because there is scar tissue and native soft tissue 'stuck' to the scar tissue.

That said, the SHAPE of your nose, as you see it in the mirror could look bad subsequent to having to have the filler surgically removed.
