Abstract

he nose, centrally located on the face, plays a crucial role in facial aesthetics. Any imbalance in its length, width, tip position, or a gross deformity, such as dorsal hump and deviation, can significantly affect the overall facial harmony, which is thus a major concern for patients. When it comes to minor deformities, they have been treated with hyaluronic acid, toxin injection, and thread insertion since 2005. This study has originally been carried out to review the published medical literature on the non-surgical techniques for Medical Nose Reshaping (MNR): a PubMed search was carried out in December 2020 using the search terms: “Nose [and] filler”, “Nose [and] botulinum toxin” and “Nose [and] thread”. A large number of studies were identified and reviewed, and it was found that rhinoplasty remains the gold standard to correct nose defects; nevertheless, MNR is gaining popularity due to its minimal invasiveness, short downtime, and the market availability of different injectables, toxins, and threads. This study aims to provide an evidence-based approach to guide the use of non-surgical techniques for MNR by reviewing published medical literature and drawing on the authors’ experience.
