what's the risk of embolism and/or necrosis after nonsurgical nose reshaping?

What is used?: Not clear what 'nonsurgical' nose shaping you are asking about. Use of fillers (like injectible silicone to accepted materials) have potential of damaging blood vessels and causing tissue loss & bear the potential of entering into the venous system around the nose which can embolize to the cavernous sinus in the cranium. Can be life threatening.
