Are their any risks involved with getting injectable rhinoplasty such as the filler moving out of place and getting inside the body, causing problems?

In brief: Nonsurgical Rhino

There are risks to injectable rhinoplasty, but filler moving into the body is not one.
Risks include lumpiness, irregularities, injury to the blood supply to the skin and airway obstruction from too much filler in the wrong place. I prefer hyaluronic acids like Restylane (dermal fillers) because they can be reversed if there is a problem.

In brief: Inject. Rhinoplasty

There are risks to everything, but injectable rhinoplasty is generally safe.
With hyaluronic acid derivatives like Restylane (dermal fillers) or calcium hydroxyapatite (radiesse), implant migration is very unlikely, and materials like silicone should not be injected because of the risk of migration. The safety and success of injectable rhinoplasty depends on the training and expertise of the person injecting.

In brief: Rhinoplasty

Injectable rhinoplasty is completely safe, however it is not widely used because the results are temporary.
May need repeated injections.

In brief: Low Risk

Injectable fillers can be used to shape the nose and improve the appearance.
There are several different fillers that can be used. Depending on the location and desired change a filler will be selected. Radiesse (dermal fillers) and juvederm are common options for injection and they have very little risk for moving out of place. This is an "off label" use of these products and they will gradually shrink away.

In brief: Be informed first.

Off label use of injectables to reshape the nose, can be used safely and predictably.
I prefer has (juvederm ultra plus xc) because it can be slightly molded and if need be, reversed with an injection of an enzyme. An experienced injector knows how to avoid or handle injections within major blood vessels which is the most critical issue aside from creating a natural and flattering shape.

In brief: Not that risk

the minor risks of filler injection include bruising, infection, allergy and shifting in the first day.
The material does not migrate through the body. Rare complication would be necrosis which can be devastating but is very rare.

In brief: Risk of fillers

There are risks to using filler. If the product is injected inadvertently into a vessel, it can cause skin necrosis.
There is a lower risk for it to migrate somewhere else in your body.

In brief: Don't Use Permanents

Fillers are not fda approved for use in changing nasal shape.
Temporary ones are usually safe as long as the filler is placed deeply against the cartilage / bone. Temporary fillers do not spread systemically. They do not migrate locally unless manipulated a lot after injection. If injected too superficially, they can cause irregularities in the soft tissue or get infected, causing scar.

In brief: Yes

As with any procedure in cosmetic surgery there are risks involved, no matter how rare they may be.
The more experienced the injector, the fewer the risks. I do start with temporary fillers and if the patients are happy, we graduate to the slow, yet rewarding process of permanent fillers. Good luck from nyc.

In brief: Local issues

Fillers are used nowadays more & more for nasal irregularities, post rhinoplasty deformities ; and is generally safe; however performing big changes with filler or incorrect injections may cause problems like skin necrosis or lumps, irregularities, etc.
Make sure whoever is injecting filler in your nose is a board certified plastic surgeon with experience doing these injections.
