Hello,
 
An examination would be needed prior to determining if you would benefit from a non-surgical
nasal procedure such as injectables to improve any traumatic nasal deformities. 
 
If you are experiencing any functional breathing problems, your passages may be narrowed due 
to the trauma and will not be aided by injectables alone.
 
Small dorsal deformities can be temporarily improved with fillers, but these will need to be repeated 
every few months depending on the filler and individual's metabolism.
 
Warm Regards,

Non-surgical rhinoplasty does not straighten a crooked nose. The non-surgical rhinoplasty uses soft tissue filler to camouflage the irregularities and make the nose look better. The procedure is a temporary correction that lasts about a year.
