Nose Fillers – Frequently Asked Questions

Nose Fillers Frequently Asked Questions

Most people get a nose job to enhance their appearance, correct a congenital defect, restore features following an accident or injury, or achieve a specific look.

Generally, a well-defined nose structure is often perceived as more attractive and aesthetically pleasing. Those who are not ready for surgical rhinoplasty (nose implant) can go for nose enhancement with a nose fillers injection.

Below are the commonly asked questions to help you decide if nose fillers are the best option for you.

What are nose fillers? 

Nose fillers treatment is a non-surgical nose enhancement and augmentation treatment. It is one of the most requested injectable treatments, especially among women and men in their 20s.

The nose filler procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid gel filler into the nose bridge and nose tip to improve the overall height and definition of the nose.

This injectable filler is used to fill in the gaps and contours of the nose. This can help to correct piercing indentations, straighten a crooked nose, and add volume to thinning noses.

When injected on the nose bridge, nose filler can enhance the height of the nose bridge. Filler can also be injected in the nose tip area to make the nose appear sharper and more defined.

What Filler is best for the nose?

Hyaluronic fillers (HA fillers), an injectable hyaluronic acid gel filler, is currently the preferred treatment option for individuals seeking non-surgical nose reshaping.

It is also the best option for those who have had surgical rhinoplasty but require minor corrections for uneven shape.

How long do nose fillers last? 

It typically takes about 9 to 12 months for nose fillers to disintegrate. However, this also depends on the type of fillers used and an individual’s body metabolism rate.

The key to having a successful nose filler treatment is the correct choice of filler and an appropriate amount of filler. Fillers that have poor cohesivity and are too soft will result in a poor outcome – an undefined, flat and broad-looking nose. Too much filler in the nose makes the nose look broad and unsightly in the long run.

Are nose fillers permanent? 

Nose fillers are not permanent. Hyaluronic acid fillers disintegrate gradually over months and will eventually disappear. In fact, if you do not like how your nose looks after injecting nose fillers, you can get them removed easily. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved quickly by injecting an “anti-dote” known as hyaluronidase solution.

Although fillers get removed by your body over time, a small amount of fillers may integrate with your soft tissue and bone, and stick around for a prolonged period of time, sometimes up to years. This may not be good if the residual filler starts to move sideways, making your nose look broader. Therefore, having an appropriate amount of fillers injected in safe intervals is important.

Is it painful? What about downtime?


Nose filler is not a painful procedure. With the help of pain relievers such as anaesthetic numbing cream, a nose filler injection is a very comfortable procedure. Most people can tolerate the procedure well.

Downtime is minimal. Mild redness and swelling are expected, which will resolve within 1-2 days. You can resume your daily work immediately after the procedure.

Is a nose filler worth it?

If you are not comfortable going under the knife, nose filler is the ideal choice of nose augmentation treatment for you. The procedure can be repeated regularly to maintain the nose’s definition and height.

Nose fillers are less invasive. There is no surgery required, and the needles used are very small.

They are much more affordable as compared to a typical rhinoplasty surgery which can cost thousands of dollars, while nose fillers usually cost a fraction of that amount.

Nose fillers are also reversible. If you are not happy with the results, the filler can be removed at any time.

Is a nose filler worth it? These are some of the pros of nose fillers to help you make the decision.

  • No need for major surgery.
  • The procedure is quick with minimal downtime.
  • Lower risks compared to surgical rhinoplasty.
  • Natural looking nose.
  • Nose fillers can be removed easily, unlike nose implants.
