A very common thing that most Asians get an aesthetic touch-up on is the nose. Compared to other races, such as Caucasians, Asian noses are relatively smaller and rounder with low nose bridges.
In the earlier times, the only way a patient can land a well defined and aesthetically pleasing nose is to go under the knife. A lot of people shy away from getting plastic surgery due to the risk involve and, of course, the pain that comes with the procedure, which would usually require several days or even weeks for recovery.
As the medical technology field advances, cosmetic doctors have found several ways of catering to the qualms of patients who wish to achieve taller and sharp noses without the hassle of undergoing surgery. One of these ingenious treatments is done with the use of nose fillers.
Nose fillers are aesthetic solutions that are injected into the skin, which makes the skin more pliable for remoulding according to the desired shape and height.

Achieve a Slimmer, Taller Nose Without Going Under the Knife by Winter Chee
In this blog review, Winter confesses that this is not the first time she has tried getting nose fillers. For her second round of fillers, Winter mentions that the doctor recommended using Hyaluronic Acid on her nose. This type of fillers is “softer” compared to others, so pieces of advice her readers to expect that the nose’s shape will not be sharp.
Winter recounts the consultation she had with her doctor for her nose job. She mentions that her initial nose fillers treatment involved a lot of remodelling by way of pinching and shaping, but this second treatment was easy and quick. She says that she found the moulding of the Hyaluronic Acid fillers harder, but was not fearful, as her doctor was an expert in performing the task. As the fillers were injected into her nose, an ice pack was placed on the spot of the injection to numb the area. In just a matter of minutes, the procedure was done!
To address Winter’s problem of having a bulbous nose, her doctor did a quick injection of Botox. The Botox helped in slimming the nose and shrinking the appearance of the tip of the nose. Results are seen immediately after the procedure. As seen in her before and after photos, the height of her nose bridge improved remarkably. Winter loves the fact that her nose looked so natural and people were commenting on how great she looked without knowing that she has undergone a cosmetic procedure.
Winter also discloses that her nose encountered some swelling, which lasted for two weeks. After a month, her nose has healed fully and the tip of her nose appeared significantly slimmer. Needless to say, Winter is very much delighted of the results of her nose fillers and is very satisfied with the great height her nose has achieved!

Nose Fillers by Jamie Nose
Jamie is very much outright at the start of her review about her dislike of her nose bridge. She says that this part of her face made her nose look flatter as it was low. She also discloses that she had fillers done previously, but because they are permanent, the initial fillers have dissolved already.
So, to get her nose elevated, Jamie headed to her chosen dermatologist to have her nose done. At the start of her visit, Jamie shares that she had a consultation with the doctor. During this time, she told the doctor the improvements she wanted for her nose, more specifically, her nose bridge. Jamie voiced to her doctor that she wanted her fillers to look natural and to suit the other features of her face.
After discussing with the doctor, Jamie narrates that she was led to the procedure room. Once in the room, the preparation for her nose filler treatment began. Numbing cream was applied on her nose bridge area. Jamie had to wait for 45 minutes for the numbing cream to rid of the sensation on her nose bridge. She gives a tip that you are free to do anything during this time, so if you have work to do just like Jamie did, you can bring along your laptop to get some things done.
As the cream took effect, a layer of iodine was smeared on top of her nose bridge to disinfect the skin. The fillers were then injected into the target area. Jamie discloses that the numbing cream made it possible for her not to feel any pain, however, she felt slight pressure when the fillers were injected. The most crucial part followed this: MOULDING!
Jamie shares that there was neither downtime nor bruising after the treatment, but there was a little swelling on her nose bridge. A concealer easily covered the tiny injection spot. If additional procedures are to be done on the face, Jamie piece of advice to have this done after 2 to 3 days, as this is the time allotted for the fillers to set, thereby giving the nose bridge its desired height. Results of nose fillers are not permanent. Jamie says that, generally, results last within 12 to 18 months.

Nose Filler Injection by Herine
Herine confesses at the beginning of her blog of her dislike for her nose. “Bulbous” as she described it. Despite this strong disapproval of this facial feature, Herine shares that she does not have the courage to undergo a permanent fix, hence she scheduled a half day leave so she can get the next best thing to attain a taller nose bridge: nose fillers!
As with any clinic procedure, a consultation is done before the treatment. Herine was asked for details such as her medical history and allergies. After which, she was asked about the improvements she wanted to do on her face. Herine reveals that this is not the first time she has gotten fillers, so she already knew which part of her nose to address. Her doctor then showed her the area where the injection will puncture to inject the fillers to her nose bridge.
Application of the numbing cream followed and left to saturate the nose bridge area for 15 to 20 minutes. Prior to the procedure proper, Herine was led to another room where she had her photos taken.
And then she’s off to getting her fillers in! For precision, the doctor marks a dot on the tip of Herine’s nose. This mark served as a guide for the doctor to be able to inject the liquid solution correctly. For the nose fillers, Restylane was used on Herine. After injecting the fillers, the doctor moulded Herine’s nose, this step took less than 15 minutes to finish. The result? A slightly raised but natural looking nose bridge for Herine!

My Nose Filler Treatment by Vikki Phoon
Vikki has fallen into a vanity trap! Or so she claims. In this review, Vikki turned to nose fillers to enhance her flat nose bridge. Her clinic visit started off with a thorough consultation with her doctor. Here, she mentions that she was able to address all her concerns to her doctor who listened patiently. Aside from correcting her nasal bridge, Vikki’s doctor suggested enhancing the dent on her nasal tip.
The makeup on Vikki’s nose was removed entirely prior to the application of numbing cream. Then, 15 minutes was allotted to wait for the numbing cream to take effect. During this time, the doctor gave Vikki another chance to go through the terms and agreement paper for her procedure.
Vikki mentions that she was having min-heart attacks right before the procedure. For any first-timer, I guess this is the initial feeling!
To prepare her nose for the injection, the doctor drew a line to mark the area where the enhancement is to be done. In addition to the numbing cream, a local anaesthetic was injected to make sure that Vikki is comfortable and without pain during the procedure.
The needle that was used to inject the nose fillers (Revanesse) looked different from other injections. The needle looked bent, to which Vikki says that it was probably designed for easier positioning. Unlike other treatments where the nose’s moulding came after the injection of the filler, Vikki’s doctor moulded and shaped her nose simultaneously as the filler was injected. Vikki credits the numbing cream and local anaesthetic for a pain-free procedure. Though, she mentions feeling a sensation that she could not put into words during the time that the fillers were infused into her nose.
The enhancement of her nasal tip is another story. Vikki mentions that this was painful as compared to the nose bridge enhancement, which was painless.
But, everything was worth it! Vikki happily shares that her nose achieved the height she wanted! Read the rest of what she had to say about his experience directly on her blog!
