5 Aftercare Tips for Your Non-Surgical Nose Job

Last Modified: November 24, 2023

Considering a non-surgical nose job for a quick beauty enhancement? It's an attractive option, but it's crucial to be aware of the risks before making your decision.

Quick, but Not Risk-Free: A key appeal of non-surgical nose jobs is the minimal downtime. You can typically walk in and walk out of the clinic. However, aftercare is essential to maintain your results and ensure your safety.

Choose Your Injector Wisely: The skill of your injector is critical. An inexperienced or poorly trained injector can cause serious complications, such as vascular occlusion. This happens when the filler blocks blood vessels, potentially leading to severe skin damage or even tissue death. The consequences can be not only painful but also lasting, and in some cases, irreversible.

Act Fast if Problems Arise: If you experience symptoms like skin discoloration or unusual pain, which could indicate vascular occlusion, it's crucial to immediately contact your injector. They should dissolve the filler and properly address the situation, reducing the risk of long-term damage.

Expert Care is Essential: At our clinic, your safety is our top priority. Our experts are well-versed in both preventing and managing any complications, including those caused by vascular occlusion. This is highlighted by our experience doing over a hundred non surgical rhinoplasties as well as our 150+ 5 star reviews on Trustpilot and google reviews.

Aftercare for Lasting Results: Adhering to aftercare instructions is vital for the longevity of your results. We'll answer common questions, including "Can I wear glasses after a nose filler?" in our guide '5 Aftercare Tips for Your Non-Surgical Nose Job.'

Don't be scared of the post-nose job swelling or bruising

Straight after your non-surgical rhinoplasty, you may experience some minor swelling, redness, itchiness, and even little bruising around your nose area. Don't be scared and think something went wrong.

These are common after-effects of any dermal filler procedure and are often go away within a day or two. As I mentioned, a non-surgical nose job is a walk-in walk-out procedure, so you can resume your normal activities as soon as you want to. 

If the swelling and bruising is a concern, do this

Here at Dr. Aesthetica, we value our patients' comfort and do not take any concerns lightly. If you are concerned about the bruising or swelling, you can use an icepack to minimize the swelling. Over the counter pain medications or topical creams can also help.

However, remember, it's always best to talk to your doctor first before trying any of these options. If it's been more than a couple of days and you still have swelling, contact your doctor to make sure everything is okay.

Can you wear glasses after a nose filler?

Plastic surgeons recommend that patients not wear eyeglasses (medical and sunglasses) for 3 months after rhinoplasty surgery. This because the glasses nose pads can pressure the nose and hinder the proper healing of the nasal bones.

But what about wearing glasses after a non-surgical nose job? How long do you have to wait after your nose filler procedure before you can wear glasses? For these questions, there are no right or wrong answers. 

However, our recommendation is for you to wait for at least 48 hours. Now, this might be practical for everyone, more so those who have to wear medical glasses. But it's important to keep in mind that it usually takes some time for your body to immobilize the fillers. So it’s always best to ensure that when you go back to wearing glasses, they are placed lightly on the bridge of the nose.

Avoid the following things for a couple of days after your nose job

For best results, some things are best avoided for a couple of days after your dermal filler nose job. These include:

  1. Don't apply make-up or topical skincare products to the area for 24 hours. 
  2. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 48 hours as this can make the bruising worse.
  3. Avoid too much sun exposure and places with intense heat such as saunas and hot yoga classes for at least a week or two.
  4. Blood-thinning medication like aspirin may increase your bruises and make the recovery period longer. Consult beforehand with your doctor if this is something you need to avoid for a few days.
  5. Massaging or pressing your nose should be avoided since it can alter the shape of the filler.

Things have possibly gone wrong when

Speak to your doctor immediately if you have the following symptoms:

  • Severe pain
  • blurred vision
  • redness, bruising, or discoloration that spreads and gets worse
  • hives or other signs of an allergic reaction

With every cosmetic procedure, even non-surgical ones, there is always the risk of complications. The nose is a sensitive area filled with blood vessels, and don't forget its extremely close to your eyes. This makes it very important to work with a certified cosmetic practitioner since the potential risk goes up exponentially if you put your trust in someone who doesn't know what they're doing. 

Also, non-surgical rhinoplasty done with hyaluronic acid fillers is reversible. Read our post: Ultimate Guide to Dermal Fillers Use in Liquid Rhinoplasty to learn more about hyaluronic acid.

So if you don't love your results, you can get your doctor to undo the work. But if you work with a board-certified and experienced doctor like Dr. Baldeep Farmah, you will be more than happy with your results.

Final Thoughts

A non-surgical nose job is a convenient procedure that will give you good results without the hustle and risks of surgical nose jobs. However, as you have discovered, you also have a big part to play to ensure you get the best results.

Among the issues we have covered: whether or not to wear glasses after a nose filler, things to avoid after the procedure, and when to reach out to your doctor. 

With this information, you are better equipped to play your big role after your procedure. If you are interested in getting a non-surgical nose job, contact Dr. Aesthetica (a leading aesthetic and advanced skin care clinic based in South Birmingham).
