Nose dermal filler with a Doctor | Non-surgical rhinoplasty / 'nose job' | Cityskin Melbourne

Non surgical rhinoplasty in Melbourne with dermal fillers. Treatment with a surgeon.

An alternative to surgery to the nose is to use dermal filler – known as a ‘non surgical rhinoplasty’ or ‘non-surgical nose job’. Dermal filler in the nose can make the nose smoother and more elegant, as shown in the artistic representation above. By placing dermal filler in the bridge of the nose it can reduce the appearance of bumps and can project the nose forwards.

We commonly perform nose dermal filler at the same time as chin dermal filler to project both the nose and the chin. The minimum amount of dermal filler that we use for a treatment is 1.0ml and this can be distributed in both nose and chin areas.

Nose dermal filler is only available at Cityskin Melbourne and NOT in Sydney.

We use small amounts of dermal filler, injected with a small needle, to lift the bridge of the nose. Ice is sometimes used to numb the skin prior to injection, and the skin is cleaned with anti-septic prior in the area being injected.

Nose dermal filler is a more complicated procedure. Mr Koppert charges $990 for nose dermal filler treatment

You can see the results of nose filler immediately, with further improvement over the next few days as the filler drags in water and lifts more.

Nose dermal fillers tend to last between 12 and 24 months.

As with other dermal filler procedures the risks of nose dermal filler include:

  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Needing to dissolve the filler on the day or in subsequent days
  • Discomfort on the day

There is a very rare but serious complication of eyesight being affected by nose dermal filler. As far as we are aware there is only one case in Australia in all the years that filler has been available so the likelihood is less than 1:10,000.

Nose dermal filler FAQs

You can treat a drooping nose tip in a number of ways but, broadly speaking, it can be treated with dermal filler, anti-wrinkle injections or surgery.

Dermal filler to lift a drooping nose tip

Dermal filler can be placed in the nose and at the base of the nose to prevent the nose from drooping. This is a riskier procedure than anti-wrinkle injections because the blood supply to the nose tip is limited and there is a risk of needing to dissolve the filler after it has been injected. Mr Koppert explains how treating the nose with dermal filler can lift the tip.

Anti-wrinkle injections for a drooping nose tip

The photo below shows the muscles of the lower face. Between the base of the nose and the upper lip is a muscle called ‘depressor septi’. This muscle helps to pull the nose tip downwards and in some people can occur when smiling. We can treat this muscle with a small amount of anti-wrinkle units to prevent the nose tip from drooping when smiling and at rest. It is a subtle effect. The effects will last approximately 2 months.

Dermal filler can be placed above or below the bump on the nose to reduce the apperance of the bump. In the video below, Mr Koppert from Cityskin Hawthorn discusses how this can be done with small amounts of dermal filler.

Nose filler isn’t particularly painful. It feels like a small sting when you have the injection but the dermal filler contains anaesthetic which reduces discomfort. The day after the procedure you may feel a mild ache but this will settle, often with panadol or nurofen.
