Nose Fillers Singapore

Nose Fillers

Nose fillers are a minimally invasive procedure used to reshape the nose in order to correct deformities and reshape the nose. Nose fillers are sometimes also known as “liquid rhinoplasty” or the “liquid nose job”.

In general, the goal of a nose filler is to alter the shape of the nose bridge, nose tip or nostrils. A smaller, crisper nose tip and a higher nose bridge are generally favourable results for nose fillers.

Nose fillers V.S Surgical procedures

There are many reasons why a patient might opt for nose fillers instead of a full-on rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasties are far harder to reverse and puts the patient out of action for a couple of weeks.

The effects of nose fillers are much more subtle when compared to the drastic change brought by rhinoplasties. Many patients report that after nose fillers their friends and colleagues manage to spot a positive difference, but not all might identify that the patient had gone for a medical procedure.

How do nose fillers work?

The most common fillers that doctors use are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid, otherwise known as glycosaminoglycan polysaccharide, is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in our bodies. Therefore, it has very low antigenicity (chance of causing bad immune reactions) and is very safe when injected into our body.

How does nose filler work

Prior to the treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied by the doctor to numb the relevant areas. This usually takes around 10-15 minutes for the area to be fully numbed before the treatment commences.

A doctor will then use a syringe and needle on specific areas of the nose in order to alter its shape and create a more appealing look. The actual procedure takes only a short time of around 15 to 20 minutes. Find out more about the procedure at Cambridge Medical Group.

Is the procedure painful?

In general, the procedure is not painful. After the application of the topical numbing cream, you should not feel too much discomfort and the procedure has been described as tolerable.

For nose fillers, there isn’t any immediate downtime after the procedure and patients can expect to return to action with about an hour’s rest. Some patients report feeling some mild discomfort and sometimes post-operative bruising and swelling is expected. However, within 24 hours, most negative effects will have subsided.

How long do they last?

Unfortunately, the hyaluronic acid content in the fillers will eventually be reabsorbed into your tissue. Once the fillers dissipate over the next six to twelve months, the nose returns to its normal shape. The time it takes for fillers to return to normal may vary from individual to individual.

Due to this, your doctor might require you to come back to get touch-ups done every few months. This is to ensure that your nose continues to maintain its new shape.
