Nose fillers: No surgery needed for shape and contour of your nose
Nose fillers are a popular treatment for anyone who has been unhappy about the appearance or shape of their nose, but does not want to go through a painful and expensive surgery. The fillers are injected under the surface of the skin, to add volume or contour. It is also referred to as a “non-surgical rhinoplasty” because there are no incisions or bandages, and no downtime or significant bruising and bleeding. Nose fillers are a minimally-invasive treatment to adjust shape and symmetry of the nose. The results are visible instantly. The procedure can smooth out bumps, eliminate hooks, thin bridges or adjust asymmetry. The results are not permanent, but they can last for longer than a year, followed by slight touch-ups to maintain the look you want. If you are considering rhinoplasty, or if you would like to make improvements to the appearance of your nose, call us today or schedule your free consultation. Our Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine team will be happy to meet you to answer all of your questions, and help you decide if a nose fillers treatment is an option for you.

Your nose fillers treatment.
Many patients who come to us nose fillers have considered rhinoplasty surgery, but would rather have a treatment that is non-invasive, without incisions. After your consultation, the treatment can begin right away. A topical anesthetic or numbing cream can be applied to reduce pain or discomfort of the injections. Nose fillers are injected with a very fine needle or cannula, using extreme precision. The fillers are placed beneath the surface of the skin, improving the shape and contour of your nose. You will notice a change immediately, as the skin is visibly lifted and features are smoothed. The Injectors can gradually add volume until you achieve your desired results, and you do not have to worry about having too much filler added. The entire procedure will take less than an hour. Afterwards, instead of weeks of recovery, there is no downtime and you can return to your daily routine as soon as you walk out of our office. There is less chance of bruising, and the treatment can be reversed easily if you are not happy with the results. It could take a week or two to see the full results, as the fillers settle in your skin.
Recovery time and possible side-effects for nose fillers
You can return to your daily routine immediately after the treatment. However you should be aware of potential, non-serious nose fillers side effects that can occur. You may notice mild bruising, swelling, tenderness, redness or bleeding from the injection sites. Those are completely normal and should disappear in just a few days. Recovery time always varies for each patent.
Recommendations to minimize side effects and speed up recovery include the following:
If you can go without wearing glasses or sunglasses, it’s best to do so immediately following the treatment
You can apply ice or a cold pack if your nose is tender, swollen or feels bruised, but don’t use too much pressure
Don’t massage your nose or the injection points
Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water, and avoid salty, spicy or processed food, as well as alcohol
Try to sleep facing up with your head elevated on 2 pillows
Be careful when applying makeup around the nose or washing your face
Avoid hot baths and showers, or activities that involve excessive sweating and no strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours
How long do nose fillers last?
Results are instantly noticeable for nose fillers, as the fillers give immediate volume and shape from underneath your skin. Depending on your treatment, it could take 1-2 weeks for the fillers to fully settle, for you to see the final result. Fillers can also be a better choice over surgery because they are not permanent, so there is almost no risk if you do not like the results. Before the treatment, you will see non-surgical nose job before and after photos, so that you know what to expect for results. The treatment can be reversed. Eventually, the fillers are broken down naturally and safely absorbed by the body. For most patients, nose fillers can last up to 12-18 months. After a year or two, you may consider coming back to our office for small touch-ups to maintain your results.
Are nose fillers safe?
Rhinoplasty surgery can be expensive, painful and require weeks of recovery. Nose fillers are a “non-surgical rhinoplasty” and the treatment has minimal side effects and no downtime. The procedure is overall very safe, with far less risks than surgery. Common side effects that can occur from dermal fillers include swelling, redness or slight bleeding from the injection points. These are all completely normal and will disappear in a few days. Other possible reactions that are rare but possible include rashes, or acne-like bumps near the injection sites. There is a low chance of bruising and allergic reactions, and the materials are eventually broken down and absorbed safely into the body.
Before your appointment for fillers, the area and your skin should be free of abnormalities such as cold sores, open wounds or infections. The doctor or injector will examine your skin, he/she may recommend waiting until they are healed, to avoid agitation and infections. There are also higher risks for patients with autoimmune diseases, blood disorders, or allergies to anesthesia. Please discuss your medical history with our injector during your consultation so that he/she is aware of any potential risks.
Should any of your side effects last for more than a few days, or if you notice other or more serious reactions, please call us immediately.
