Just a few years ago, if you wanted to improve your nose (correct curves, a droopy tip, make it straighter, less bumpy), your options were completely limited to having a surgical procedure known as rhinoplasty. However that has all changed with the introduction of injectable fillers.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as an injectable rhinoplasty, or liquid rhinoplasty, has the capability to transform your entire profile in just 15 minutes, provided the procedure is performed by a qualified practitioner.
It is extremely important to point out, that the nose is a particularly delicate and tricky area of the face. In terms of what’s risky to inject, the nose ranks up there as the most dangerous. This is because the blood supply to the nose is quite weak, particularly in noses that have already undergone a previous surgery. So please be aware that this isn’t a procedure you want to shop around for. Speak to your practitioner about their experience with non-surgical nose jobs—and be sure they outline all the potential risks.
At Esteem Clinic, we recognise that every face is unique, and every client has their own individual aesthetic goals. Our team of highly qualified, experienced cosmetic injectors are trained under world-renowned Plastic Surgeon Dr Terrence Scamp. Before any non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure, you must have a complimentary consultation to discuss your treatment suitability and your desired outcomes.
In the Spotlight
How it works
Nose filler injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA) – a naturally occurring substance (sugar molecule) in the skin that stabilises its structure, attracts and binds water, and improves elasticity. Nose fillers are used to reshape the facial profile, remove unwanted bumps and lumps, straighten sharp angles and lift a droopy tip.
Esteem’s nose filler treatments utilise products by leading industry suppliers, Galderma and Allergan, who have provided effective, well-tolerated and the highest quality of products globally for over 30 years.
What to expect
The level of pain experienced is really dependent on the individual. The injections themselves feel like a slight pinch. And as the nose filler product is being injected, you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation.
Although the needle used is very small, slight bruising and bleeding can occur at the site of the injections. You can choose to have your practitioner apply or inject a local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort.
The nose filler procedure takes around 15-30 minutes.
It is very important to have a pre-treatment consultation. During this consultation, your registered nurse cosmetic injector will explain the procedure, assess your suitability, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and set expectations.
Nose fillers are designed to remove bumps, lumps or bridges in the nose, soften sharp angles, and raise a droopy nose tip.
One of the most attractive advantages of nose filler treatments are that the results are instant. Within a 15-30min treatment, you will have acheived a more aesthetically pleasing profile.
Whilst every body is different, generally speaking, nose filler can last for around 18 months. However please note that the duration depends on many factors, such as your individual skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age – as well as the type and amount of product used. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 18 months depending on the individual and the product used.

The following people are not suitable candidates for nose filler injections:

Post Treatment Care
– Do not massage the area that has been injected, this will be done at the time of treatment if needed.
– If needed, Panadol is fine for mild discomfort, do not take Nurofen, Aspirin or blood thinning anti-inflammatories.
– Bruising and/or swelling may make the site look uneven initially. If there is still asymmetry at 2 weeks, this can be discussed at your review. If additional filler is required extra costs may apply.
– Avoid physical activity, alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours following treatment.
– Do not expose yourself to extreme heat for 2 weeks.
– If you have been treated with dermal filler in your lips, avoid very hot or cold beverages for 24 hours.
– If your cheeks have been treated, avoid sleeping on your side for a few days.
– No laser, IPL, microdermabrasion’s, chemical peels, facials, facial waxing for 2 weeks after treatment.
– Results from treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect.
– Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas (from your pillow) and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
– Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours. If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after your treatment, only use a GENTLE touch to avoid rubbing the treated area.
