Due to the importance of appearance, the aesthetic corrections of the nose have been of interest since antiquity. In the middle ages, Gaspare Tagliacozzi introduced the famous “Italian method” for reconstruction of traumas and nasal deformities. During the 20th century various surgical techniques of rhinoplasty were created. However, Broeckaert, who is considered the Father of Modern Rhinoplasty was the first to perform nasal corrections using liquid paraffin filling in the early 20th century. Since then, physicians in favour of non-invasive procedures have developed safer techniques and materials for the correction of nasal defects. Although considered gold standard, the surgical approach to nasal defects is an invasive procedure, which often requires a fracture of the nasal bone. The fillers appear as an alternative for correction of small nasal defects, complementation or correction after the surgical procedure. Although not definitive, they have gained space because they are less traumatic and painful, and present minimal complications compared to traditional rhinoplasty. The search for safe, long-lasting materials and of predictable effects is continuous. Hyaluronic Acid fillers are currently the most widely used procedure, because of the ease of application, predictable efficacy, good safety profile and rapid patient recovery. This presentation will describe technique and will present clinical cases of rinomodeling with Hyaluronic Acid.
