Nasal Contouring Filler

OVERVIEW

While nose jobs are most commonly thought of as being performed via plastic surgery, several other options are available to give you the desired results without going under the knife. This can be especially helpful if you have health or other concerns that keep you from having surgery or are simply looking for an alternative to surgery.

What Is Nasal Contouring Filler?

Nasal contouring filler can treat a variety of cosmetic concerns, including lessening the dorsal hump or making your nose look straighter. This type of treatment is best for those trying to subtly reduce their tip size without drastically changing their appearance. The procedure involves injecting filler into your nose to reshape it as desired. The results are subtle and natural-looking, lasting up to two years.

Prior to nasal contouring filler, you’ll need to have an initial consultation with a certified professional to discuss what you want out of your treatment. During that appointment, you will be given detailed instructions on preparing for surgery and what you should expect from recovery afterward.

Why Get The Procedure?

People choose to undergo nasal contouring filler to make their noses more symmetrical and even. If you were born with a disproportionately small or large nose or suffered an injury that affected your nasal structure, nasal contouring filler could also help fix these issues. The procedure has minimal downtime, so scheduling around work, school, and social activities is easy. In addition, most patients can resume their normal daily routine within just one week of receiving nasal contouring filler injections.

How Long Does It Last?

If you’re looking for something long-lasting, there’s nothing better than injectable fillers. While other options have longer lifespans, they also tend to be more painful or invasive. You can expect results for nasal contouring filler to last somewhere between 12 to 18 months, at which point you can return for a follow-up appointment if desired.

Recovery Time

If you’re looking for an easy procedure, you’ll be happy to know that recovery time is quick and usually has no downtime. You can return to work on the same day, although your nose may be slightly sensitive for a few days after surgery. For comfort, apply ice packs wrapped in cloth around your nose every few hours until the swelling subsides. There is very little downtime associated with nasal contouring filler. After treatment, patients can return home immediately and typically resume normal activities within hours of treatment. Patients can experience minimal discomfort or side effects following treatment; however, it is recommended that patients take one or two pain relievers (such as ibuprofen) when returning home from treatment.

Risk

While any operation poses some risks, nasal contouring filler pose very few risks. The procedure itself is a simple one, and recovery is usually quick. However, as with all surgeries, potential complications may arise during or after surgery. These include infection, bleeding, and allergic reactions to fillers. Your doctor will discuss these risks in detail before you undergo treatment so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with your desired change.
