This study was intended to assess the utility of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in patients who do not wish surgery in addition to the patients with minor post-surgery asymmetries. This was a prospective study which included post-surgery patients for minor nasal asymmetries, patients unwilling for surgery and those waiting for revision surgery. It is of great use in candidates who do not wish surgery but had the desire for different nasal appearance especially for important life events like marriage etc. This study included 20 patients with follow up period of 18 months. The results were compared on Nasal Imperfection Scale and Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation along with pre and post injection photographs. Nasal Imperfection Scale difference of 5 and Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation Scale differential of 50 is considered to be significant, which was observed in all individual cases. The growing need of medical rhinoplasty by the patient as well as surgeons has led to the introduction of fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are safe, easy and effective dermal fillers for patients undergoing all the expected indications of medical rhinoplasty. There is also growing number of candidates who wish for a 'nose job' for desired changes without coming under surgeon's scalpel. Our clinical experience with 20 patients has been described with satisfactory results.
