What Exactly Is A Nose Filler? And What Is It Made Of?
A nose filler is simply a dermal filler that is injected into your nose to add volume to a specific part of your nose. With a nose filler, we can therefore temporarily (or permanently) change the shape of your nose.
There are several different kinds of material that can be used for a nose filler. The different materials will normally have different kinds of effects, different hardnesses, and different durations.
Hence, if you are considering getting a nose filler, we should select the one that provides the results you want.
The most common fillers used nowadays are made of something called hyaluronic acid.
A good thing about these fillers is that your body already produces this acid, therefore they are considered super safe.
There are also fillers made of calcium or poly-L-lactic acid. These fillers also stimulate the production of collagen, which encourages regeneration of tissue.
A relatively new nose filler is made of something called polymethylmethacrylate. This material is often used in surgical implants, and is therefore of a permanent nature.
Because the results are permanent, we recommend that you underfill on the first treatment. Then we can add more at the next appointment, until we have achieved the desired results.
Lastly, it is also possible to use fat from your own body. In other words, we can transplant fat from somewhere else in your body and place it inside your nose. This will normally provide semi-permanent or permanent results. However, it is a treatment that is rarely performed these days as the other fillers are more reliable and simpler to use.
Why Would You Get A Nose Filler?
Would you like to change the shape of your nose?
If so, you have two main options:
- You could get what is called rhinoplasty, which is plastic surgery
- Or you could get a nose filler
Because rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, it entails various risks. And it also comes with a relatively long downtime.
A nose filler, on the other hand, is a non-surgical option. All it is, is an injection of dermal filler material into your nose. The effects from this are immediate, and there is virtually no downtime. And there are very few side effects.
We will dig deeper into the pros and cons of rhinoplasty vs. nose filler in a minute.
But first, let’s understand the three main reasons why people get a nose filler:
- To hide a bump or hump (called a dorsal hump) on the nose
- To alter the curve of the nose
- To lift up the tip of the nose (‘correct’ a droopy nose tip)
In order to correct a hump on your nose, we simply add filler around the hump. This way, we can camouflage the bump and produce a straight appearance.
In order to alter the curve of your nose, we simply add filler where desired and sculpt it to get the shape you want.
And to lift up the tip of your nose, we add the filler to the tip of your nose to make it more pronounced.
When is a nose filler not a good solution?
If you want to make your nose smaller, then a nose filler will not work. In this case, the only option is to get plastic surgery. Also, if you have a very significant bump on your nose, this may be difficult to ‘correct’ with a dermal filler.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of A Nose Filler Vs. A Surgical Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure where a surgeon will cut the cartilage and (or) bone in your nose. In other words, your nose will be opened up with a scalpel.
A nose filler is a simpler treatment. It is just an injection of material into your nose.
So what are the pros and cons of both treatments?
Degree of difficulty: Rhinoplasty is a process that is significantly more complicated. It entails opening your nose and removing parts of your cartilage and (or) bone. After the surgery, your nose will be stitched back together. A nose filler is simply an injection of material into your nose, which is super simple to do.
What can be achieved: Surgical rhinoplasty can make bigger changes to your nose. Rhinoplasty can make your nose smaller. A nose filler cannot do this. A nose filler can only increase the size of your nose. However, both rhinoplasty and a nose filler can improve symmetry, reduce the appearance of humps, and reshape the tip of your nose. Rhinoplasty can also reshape your nostrils, improve breathing problems (including snoring), and repair nose injuries.
Anesthesia: If you go for rhinoplasty, this will require heavy anesthesia. Very often, you will get what is called general anesthesia. This means that you will be completely unconscious during the surgery. In addition, a tube will be placed in your mouth in order to control your breathing via a breathing machine. The only anesthesia you will need for a nose filler is a numbing cream.
Downtime: Following rhinoplasty, it is normal to take one to two weeks off work and social activities. It will take about two weeks for the majority of the swelling to have subsided. Which means you should also wait about two weeks before doing strenuous exercise. It can take several months to recover completely. If you get a nose filler, the downtime will in most cases be zero. Normally, you can continue with your normal day after walking out of the clinic. You should however wait about 2 days before doing strenuous exercise.
Duration of results: Rhinoplasty is permanent. A nose filler, on the other hand, is temporary (in most cases) and will normally last from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler we use.
Reversal of treatment: Rhinoplasty cannot be reversed. However, a hyaluronic acid nose filler can easily be reversed with something called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase dissolves the hyaluronic acid so that the shape of your nose reverts to what it was before the filler treatment.
Cost: Rhinoplasty is expensive and will normally cost from £4,000 to £8,000. A nose filler will normally cost between £350 and £600.
If you wish to change the shape of your nose, a good approach is to first get a nose filler. This way, you can try it out and see if you like the new shape. If you like the results and want to make them permanent, you can always go for rhinoplasty later.
What Is It Like To Get A Nose Filler?
When you come to our clinic, we will first welcome you and ensure that you are comfortable. We will then explain the procedure so that you are aware of exactly what will happen.
When you tell us you are ready, we will begin.
Step 1 is to cleanse your nose with an antiseptic liquid.
Step 2 is to apply a numbing cream. This will remove most or all of the discomfort you otherwise would have felt from the injection. You will normally still feel the pressure of the needle to your nose, but you will typically feel no pain.
This numbing cream needs about 20-30 minutes to become effective, so as soon as it’s working, we will begin.
Step 3 is to inject the filler where desired.
After the injection is completed, we will normally massage and sculpt the filler in order to get the exact look you want.
After this, we may apply ice to reduce any potential bruising. That’s it!
The entire treatment should normally take no more than 60-90 minutes.
And the great part about dermal fillers, is that you will see the results right away. Therefore, as you walk out of our Bournemouth clinic, your nose should already have the shape you want. 👍
As you leave us, we will give you aftercare instructions, and you can continue with your day pretty much as you otherwise would have.
Does Getting A Nose Filler Hurt?
When done correctly, getting a nose filler should not hurt. Most of our clients only feel minimal discomfort.
This is because we will apply a numbing cream to your nose before making the injection. This will numb your nose so that you should not normally feel any pain.
Also, a filler should only be administered by a licensed and certified person (like the staff at TreatMyWrinkles Bournemouth), as this ensures that the clinician has gone through appropriate training.
Our clients tell us that the injection process is normally a lot less painful than they expected.
What Are The Side Effects Of Getting A Nose Filler?
Many people experience no side effects at all. However, other people may experience one or more of three common side effects: Tenderness, swelling, and bruising.
A good thing, however, is that these side effects are normally very mild, and normally last no more than two days.
After the treatment, your nose may be tender and sensitive. This is normal, particularly the first time you get the treatment. But it will typically disappear over the next two days.
You may also see swelling where you had the injection – beyond the increase from the filler. This may however not be visible until a few hours after the injection. However, it normally goes away within two days.
You may also experience slight bruising where the injections were made. This also normally fades away within two days.
It is not common to experience severe side effects, however, if you experience any of the below, please contact us immediately:
- Severe swelling or bruising lasting more than five days
- Lumps and irregularities in the nose
- Stiffening of the nose
- Allergic reaction or itching around the nose
How Much Does A Nose Filler Cost?
The cost of a nose filler will depend on two key factors: 1) The type and brand of dermal filler, and 2) how much filler you need.
The most common nose filler is a hyaluronic acid filler, and if this is what you choose, it will normally cost from £350 to £600. At our TreatMyWrinkles Bournemouth clinic, the price of a complete hyaluronic acid nose filler treatment is only £300.
A collagen stimulating filler (polylactic acid) will normally be more expensive. This treatment will typically cost from £700 to £1,400.
In the event you want a fat-based filler, this will normally cost between £1,700 to £3,400.
A nose filler is normally what is called an elective cosmetic procedure. That means that the cost will normally not be covered by your health insurance. However, if you want, we are happy to discuss payment plans to help you spread the cost over a longer period.
How To Get Ready For A Nose Filler?
You don’t really need to prepare much before getting a nose filler. However, here are a few items we would like to mention in order to get the best results from the treatment.
We advise that you avoid blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc., two days before the treatment.
We also recommend that you stay away from alcohol 24 hours before the treatment.
The reason we advise avoiding both, is that they make your blood thinner. By staying away from blood thinners, you can minimize the occurrence of bruising and swelling.
We also suggest that you avoid very salty foods two days before the treatment. The reason is that excess sodium will make your body retain water, which in turn can increase swelling.
You can learn more about how to prepare for the treatment here.
What To Do (And Not To Do) After The Nose Filler Treatment
When you have completed the nose filler treatment, there are a few actions we recommend that you do not do in order to get the best possible results.
We advise that you don’t touch your nose at all for about six hours after the treatment. This is to avoid bruising and to prevent the filler from moving from its intended locations.
Also, we recommend that you don’t wear glasses that touch the bridge of your nose for one week. This is to prevent your glasses from making the filler move.
We also advise that you don’t use make-up on your nose for 24 hours.
Also, we suggest that you avoid strenuous exercise for about 48 hours after the treatment.
In addition, we recommend that you be careful with sun exposure and heat (e.g. sauna and hot showers) for about 48 hours after the treatment. The reason is that high heat can expand your blood vessels and hence, potentially increase bruising.
To avoid bruising, we suggest that you also stay away from alcohol, painkillers, and blood thinners for the next 24 hours.
Lastly, we advise that you avoid any firm pressure on the nose for at least a week. You can learn more about aftercare here.
How Long Does A Nose Filler Last?
A nose filler is temporary. However, the duration varies depending on what kind and brand of filler you choose. However, if you go with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, you can expect most of them to last from about six months to a full year.
A collagen-stimulating filler (polylactic acid) will normally last from 1-3 years.
A fat-based filler will normally also last from 1-3 years.
What Are The Names Of The Most Common Nose Fillers?
There are many manufacturers and brands of dermal fillers. The following are the most common nose filler brands:
All of these dermal fillers are administered the same way and give you similar results. Also, some of these contain something called lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic.
Are You Thinking About Getting A Nose Filler?
If you are thinking about getting a nose filler, one key question you should ask yourself is: What do I want my nose to look like after the procedure?
Do you have a hump on your nose that is bothering you? Do you want to lift up your nose tip? Do you want a straighter nose? Do you want to change the curve of your nose?
When we understand what you wish to accomplish, we know what filler to use and exactly what to do.
Also, if you happen to have a photo of someone who has the nose that you want, that would be helpful for us.
Btw, if you have any questions, you can contact us here for a FREE consultation.
A few words of caution:
You should ideally be in good health and be a nonsmoker before getting a nose filler. If you are in doubt about this, please talk to us.
Also, in the event you have diabetes, lupus, or blood-clotting problems, it may be best to postpone or cancel the nose filler plans.
Before getting a nose filler, we ask that you please tell your clinician about any medications you are taking, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements.
Lastly, if you are breastfeeding or pregnant, we advise that you wait with the dermal filler.
What If You Are Not Happy With The Nose Filler?
If you had a hyaluronic acid filler, you can simply come back and have it dissolved!
The good news about these dermal fillers is that they can be reversed with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. It dissolves hyaluronic acid rapidly and safely. And your nose will quickly go back to what it was like before the treatment.
So in the event you should not be happy with the look, you can have it reversed. 👍
On the other hand, if you get a filler that is not hyaluronic acid, the reversal is more complicated. Please contact us to find out more.
