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 the Liverpool clinic for NSR treatment with Dr Lauren she was lovely welcoming and very talented. She went through everything with me in great detail and ensured I was comfortable and getting the right treatment, we discussed my concerns before the treatment so I felt very safe and knew I was in the best hands. I’m happy with the outcome and not to forget the follow up care and call which I didn’t expect. My advice is if you are thinking of getting any treatment then stick with the best professionals in the business and Dr Lauren is an asset to Dr Yusra’s team.

Had very bad hallow eyes and dr yusra and her team were amazing with the process. Being a man it can feel uncomfortable to consider these procedures but they do everything to make it as smooth and comfortable as possible. Listen to the advice! Dr yusra analysed my face and realised it was cheeks that needed some help and not the under eyes, its given me such a fresh younger look and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Title: Exceptional Aesthetic Experience I recently had an aesthetic treatment at Dr Yusra Clinic, and I cannot express enough how pleased I am with the entire experience. From the moment I walked in, the staff displayed a level of professionalism and kindness that instantly put me at ease. Dr. Yusra, in particular, went above and beyond in ensuring my comfort. She took the time to calm my nerves and spent an extended period discussing my reasons for seeking the treatment. What truly set her apart was her thorough explanation of the treatment process. She didn't just outline the procedure; she made sure I understood every aspect, leaving no room for uncertainties. Dr. Yusra's genuine care for her patients was evident throughout the consultation. I felt valued and reassured, not just as a client, but as someone she genuinely cared about. She took the time to discuss various products, explaining why each was the best fit for me. Additionally, she offered valuable advice on other concerns I had, demonstrating a holistic approach to my well-being. One of the most comforting aspects of the consultation was the lack of pressure to proceed with the treatment. Dr. Yusra allowed me the time to carefully assess the costs involved and make a decision that I felt comfortable with. Her advice was not only honest but also presented in a factual and easily understandable manner. In conclusion, my experience at Dr Yusra Clinic exceeded my expectations. Dr. Yusra and the entire staff made me feel more important than just a client, providing a level of personalised care that is truly commendable. I highly recommend their services for anyone seeking not only effective aesthetic treatments but also a compassionate and considerate approach to patient care.

Wow well what can I say? What a lovely lady Dr Yusra is and so talented! She went through everything with me in SUCH detail and analysis in a way I have not experienced before, so before the treatment I felt very safe and sure she would do a great job. She did! I’m so happy with the teaks to my nose which has been wonky for years after several breaks. She also covered my whole face and discussed many areas where there was volume loss, or over active muscles etc. She was wonderful and I will definitely be booking in with her again! Thankyou SO much Dr Yusra!
