nose filler aftercare what should you do

Your journey to enhance your facial features with nose fillers doesn’t end with the injection. To ensure optimal results and a smooth rhinoplasty recovery, proper aftercare is crucial.

Taking care of your newly enhanced nose requires patience, gentle practices, and a commitment to follow your practitioner’s advice.

Throughout this blog, we will explore the world of nose filler aftercare and what you should do to nurture your new look. For more information, read on!


Understanding the Basics

After getting nose fillers, you might experience some swelling and mild discomfort. Applying an ice pack to the treated area can help relieve these symptoms. Wrap the ice pack in a thin cloth and gently press it against your nose for a few minutes at a time.

It’s tempting, but try to avoid touching the area. Give the filler some time to settle in its place without interference. Your hands may introduce bacteria, leading to infections or uneven distribution of the filler.


Hydration and Skincare

Staying hydrated is a crucial aspect of any aftercare routine. Water helps flush out toxins, promoting overall skin health. Aim to drink at least six glasses of water a day to keep your skin, including your nose, looking and feeling its best.


Gentle Cleansing

When washing your face, be gentle around the nose area. Use a mild, fragrance-free cleanser to avoid irritation. Harsh cleansers may disrupt the balance of your skin and interfere with the settling of the filler.


Sun Shield

Protect your investment by shielding your nose from the sun. UV rays can accelerate the breakdown of filler material. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, even on cloudy days, and wear a wide-brimmed hat for added protection.


Lifestyle Adjustments

Changing your sleeping position might be necessary during the initial days after getting nose augmentation fillers. Try sleeping on your back to avoid putting pressure on your nose. This can help prevent the filler from shifting.


Limit Alcohol and Avoid Smoking

Excessive alcohol consumption and smoking can negatively impact your skin’s elasticity and overall health.

These habits can compromise the results of your cosmetic procedure. If possible, limit alcohol intake and quit smoking, or at least cut back during the recovery period.


Monitoring and Communication

Stay connected with your practitioner by attending any scheduled follow-up appointments. These check-ins allow your practitioner to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure that the filler has settled as intended.


Communicate Concerns Promptly

If you notice any unusual changes, such as persistent swelling, redness, or discomfort, don’t hesitate to reach out to your practitioner. Effective communication can help address potential issues before they escalate.


Diet Considerations

Incorporate anti-inflammatory foods into your diet to support the healing process. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon and walnuts, can help reduce inflammation and promote skin health.

Excessive salt can contribute to water retention and swelling. Keep your salt intake in check to minimise the risk of prolonged post-filler swelling.


Embracing Patience

The road to achieving your desired results with nose fillers is a journey that requires a bit of time. Patience is key when it comes to aftercare.

Allow your body to adjust to the changes, and don’t be disheartened by any initial swelling or minor asymmetries. In most cases, these issues can be common side effects that resolve themselves as the filler settles.


Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Vs Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty and a surgical nose job are two distinct approaches to nose enhancement, each with its own set of benefits and considerations.

Non-surgical treatments, often known as a “liquid rhinoplasty or a liquid nose job,” involve injecting dermal fillers to refine and reshape your nose.

This option is quick, relatively painless, and requires minimal downtime. It’s an appealing choice for those seeking temporary changes without the commitment of surgery. However, results are temporary, lasting about 6-12 months.

On the other hand, surgical rhinoplasty is a more permanent solution that involves restructuring the nose through incisions. This method is suitable for those seeking significant and long-lasting changes, addressing both aesthetic concerns and functional issues like breathing difficulties.

While surgical rhinoplasty demands more recovery time and involves some level of risk, it offers a comprehensive solution for those desiring permanent transformation.

Choosing between non-surgical and surgical rhinoplasty depends on personal preferences, desired outcomes, and the willingness to undergo a more invasive procedure for enduring results.

Consulting with a qualified healthcare professional can help individuals make informed decisions based on their unique needs and goals.

I visited Dr Yusra’s clinic for non surgical rhinoplasty. I was so impressed with the whole experience from start to finish. Dr Yusra and her team were extremely professional, listening to my concerns and what I hoped to achieve from the procedure. I’d like to give a special mention to Lucy who looked after me pre and post treatment, she was so friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel completely at ease. I look forward to my next visit.

September 2023: I’ve been going to Dr Yusra’s clinic for the last nine months and can honestly say the change in my skin is so apparent that people on Teams calls at work tell me I’m glowing. Dr Lauren has been doing my skin treatments since May with Co2 laser (following secret pro with Olivia) and 3 rounds of subcision with skin boosters. Dr Lauren takes time to explain the science behind the treatments before we do them so I have a realistic idea of the healing and results process. Dr Yusra is also always on hand for any queries too and as soon as you enter the Liverpool clinic, you’re given such a warm and friendly greeting by the team. Despite it being far from me, it is without a doubt worth the drive to get high quality results. Update: I've had two sessions of SecretPro with Olivia and can see a huge difference in my skin so far. Olivia is so professional, patient and took the time to go through the process before and after treatment to ensure I was comfortable. Couldn't recommend Olivia and the team at Dr Yusra's enough! Having been to Dr Yusra’s clinic before, I’ve always found them to have a high standard of care. I’ve recently been in contact with Olivia to help me with the next stage of my skin journey and have been so happy with the helpful advice and assistance she’s given me. I decided to start treatment at Dr Yusra’s clinic because the treatments being offered are different to those I’ve seen elsewhere with really impressive results on other patients. I trust I’m in good hands and excited to continue this journey to finally sorting out my skin!!

I had 3 areas of Botox as well as masseter Botox with Dr Emily and she is so lovely, listens to any queries you have (even if you think it’s a silly question) and puts you at ease through your procedure. I have a lot of pain in my jaw when eating and grinding my teeth in my sleep, Dr Emily was able to talk me through the procedure for helping this and since having masseter Botox I haven’t had pain while eating and there’s no pain when I wake up. Would definite recommend the clinic and Dr Emily.

I went to see Dr. Emily for a non-surgical nose job, and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Dr. Emily was super caring and understanding, and she made me feel totally comfortable. The results are amazing, and I already feel so much more confident. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Emily – she's really awesome at what she does!

Me and my sister have recently had 2 treatments with the lovely Holly who is one of the skin therapists at the clinic, and we loved getting our treatments by her!! she was fantastic and stayed so professional and caring through out the treatments.. and quickly put us at ease as we were abit nervous to begin with! All I can say is you're in good hands here and I cannot recommend Dr Yusra’s clinic enough! all the staff members are so kind and accommodating cant wait to come back for more treatments x
I have had treatments from Dr Yusra and team over the past few years and despite having to travel quite a distance for this clinic it is 10000% worth the journey. They are careful and expert in the treatments they deliver, and I always feel in safe hands. I would like to thank Dr Emily especially, I have not visited a different clinician or clinic since first seeing her for my treatments and I am always very happy with the results. As well as being talented she is just lovely and a pleasure to visit.

I have been with Dr Yusra for 3 years, and Ive never looked back, with some small tweaks she allowed me to feel confident again. If anyone is hesitant or looking for the perfect aesthetician I couldn’t recommend this clinic enough! Thank you!
