About

Nose filler (also known as the non-surgical rhinoplasty) is a popular treatment. It can be used correctively to address asymmetry, restore an ageing nose or to beautify. As it is the central point of the face, it plays an important role in the overall aesthetic of the face.

What we can improve

  • The ageing nose

As we get older bone is lost from the upper jaw bone which is the structural support for the nasal tip. As a result the tip starts to droop and the width of the radix reduces. This can be corrected by filler to add support and raise the tip projection.

  • A flat nasal bridge

Dermal filler in the midline of the nose can improve this. A commonly sought after feature in Asian patients.

  • The nasofrontal angle can be improved with filler in the nasal bridge. This is viewed side on.
  • Bumps and asymmetry can be corrected
  • Irregularities after surgical rhinoplasty can be improved (in discussion with your Plastic Surgeon)
  • Projection of the tip of nose can be improved

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What type of filler?

Generally only small amounts of filler are required to make significant improvements in the shape of the nose. A strong filler with strong lifting potential is required.

Pain relief during procedure

The pain is very minimal during the procedure, however the filler does contain local anaesthetic to improve comfort.

The nose filler procedure

The nose is shaped using a needle or cannula in the areas considered to be most safe.

Possible side effects

As with any medical procedure there are some risks to consider. Most patients will have some degree of swelling associated with this treatment, but this will settle over the following few days. There may be some discomfort, bleeding or bruising. There have been cases in Australia of vascular injury whereby filler is inadvertently injected into a blood vessel. It is very rare but if it occurred could lead to necrosis of the skin or visual loss. The nose is considered a higher risk area to inject with filler. A thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and safe injecting techniques can greatly minimise this risk, however if any signs were to occur the filler would need to be dissolved immediately.

Recovery

There is minimal (if any) recovery for this procedure. As the filler is placed deep on bone, it would be rare that there would be bruising or swelling associated with the procedure.

After care

No makeup or lipstick for 4 hours. No exercise for the next 24 hours. Avoiding alcohol that evening will minimise any bruising. Applying ice will also help with swelling and bruising. No swimming for one week.

Cost

Every face is different – so there’s no such thing as a cheek, chin, jaw or tear trough ‘price’. It depends your existing features and what your individual face needs. So you will be guided by Dr. Allison on how many ml’s of filler you need during your consultation. Please see our prices.
