Dermal fillers provide an effective, minimally invasive, and nonsurgical method of restoring your youthful look. But most people think about correcting fine lines, facial folds, and wrinkle areas when they hear dermal fillers. On the contrary, filler injections can actually be used for the enhancement of facial features as well. This can be done anywhere in the facial region including the cheeks, jaw, under the eye, lips, and nose.

So can dermal fillers be used for the nose? Dermal filler injection treatments for the nose (i.e, nonsurgical rhinoplasty) are an effective solution that provides fast but long-lasting results to enhance the nasal area and correct the problem areas around the treatment site. There are many kinds of filler injections that can be used for this area, but it’s best to consult with an aesthetic provider to know which would most likely work best in the problem area.

Why You Need Dermal Filler For Nose

There are those who’d like to change the appearance of their nose, but they’re too scared or skeptical to undergo facial plastic surgery. Nose dermal filler or nonsurgical rhinoplasty provides an instant way to enhance a patient’s nose with fast recovery and almost no downtime at all.

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty (i.e, liquid nose job) involves using dermal filler injections applied to the nose to temporarily modify nose shape, nose bridge, and nasal tip. However, it’s important to note that this procedure has certain limitations. 

In case a patient would like to reduce their nose size, liquid rhinoplasty can’t make noses smaller as it works only to enhance the nose appearance. If you’re looking for a procedure to improve the actual function of the nose then alternative treatments and procedures may be more suited for you such as a surgical procedure (i.e, chin implant, reconstructive surgery, or any other kinds of cosmetic surgery).

There are instances when a patient would need to undergo more drastic procedures such as rhinoplasty for a more effective and long-lasting effect. Additionally, the results from dermal filler treatments may be temporary, depending on how fast an individual’s body metabolizes these compounds.

Benefits of Having Dermal Filler Instead of Nose Job

Nonsurgical nose jobs using injectable fillers effectively smooth bumps in the nose. Although liquid rhinoplasty for the nose has its limits, this procedure can effectively modify and enhance the characteristics of the nose without invasive surgery. The benefits of having this procedure over its alternatives include:

  • Quick in-office procedure
  • No incisions or scarring from the procedure
  • Instant natural-looking results
  • Instant recovery and almost no downtime
  • Minimal risks and side effects
  • Reversible adverse effects
  • Relatively long-lasting
  • More affordable costs

The liquid nose job treatment session typically takes 45 minutes. Depending on the type of dermal filler substance you use, there may be an anesthetic component that would help you feel minimal pain and discomfort all throughout the session. A topical anesthetic or numbing cream can be applied to ensure that no pain and discomfort will be felt as the injectable filler is applied to the skin.

Nose Dermal Fillers Before and After

Most people get filler injections for the nose instead of having traditional surgical rhinoplasty because of the great disparity when it comes to the hassle and cost of having a surgical treatment. Patients usually use this treatment to correct the following problems in the treatment area:

  • Acne scars
  • Crooked nose shape
  • Thin nose bridge
  • Small nasal tip

If you’re wondering whether nonsurgical rhinoplasty is the right treatment to enhance your nose, check out the reasons why people opt to have this treatment over traditional rhinoplasty. Having dermal fillers injected into the nose will result in:

  • Enhancing nose volume
  • Modifying the nose tip or nose bridge
  • Smoothing out bumps or lumps
  • Straightening crooked noses

Before the nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure, you’ll have your initial consultation with your plastic surgeon to discuss your aesthetic goals and medical history. This provides a direction and a set of instructions to follow to keep the procedure as safe and effective as possible. 

Aside from that, the initial consultation is also a way to determine whether you’re an eligible candidate for the nonsurgical rhinoplasty treatment procedure. Otherwise, your plastic surgeon may recommend other treatment options that may be suitable for you.

Best Dermal Filler for The Nose

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty works to reshape the nose or enhance the nasal tip. There are many dermal filler substances that may be used for this treatment, but the most popular ones among those are hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane Lyft. 

The hyaluronic acid filler contains a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a gel-like ingredient that’s naturally found in the body. This binds hydrogen into the skin resulting in a more natural-looking, hydrated, and radiant glow.

Dermal Fillers Nose Side Effects

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment procedure that is preferred over traditional revision rhinoplasty because of its minimal risks. However, there are still side effects that may be expected to last for 1 to 2 days following the treatment session such as the following:

  • Nausea
  • Swelling or tenderness of the treatment area
  • Bruising or discoloration around the treatment area
  • Nose filler migration

There are instances when the symptoms are felt in the entire duration that the dermal fillers take to settle within the skin, which can last from 2 weeks up to a month. If there are no improvements in the side effects, consult with your aesthetic doctor or a qualified healthcare provider.

It’s also important to note that a nonsurgical nose job is still required to be administered by a qualified aesthetic professional such as a plastic surgeon. Even if the treatment procedure is nonsurgical and it merely involves injections, it’s still important to seek the services of a plastic surgeon instead of doing these treatments at home or by a non-qualified professional. Otherwise, you can increase the risk of the following potential complications:

  • Allergic reaction
  • Fever and moderate nausea
  • Necrosis (i.e, tissue death)
  • Blurred vision or vision loss
  • Escalating swelling or redness
  • Blood vessel complications
