It is important to follow your practitioner’s post-procedure instructions after having non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment. Although wearing glasses is generally acceptable, you should try to avoid contact with the nasal skin to prevent indentations from occurring.

How long do non-surgical nose jobs last?
A non-surgical nose job lasts on average between 6 to 18 months. Once the filler begins to be reabsorbed by the body, top-up treatment can be requested by patients to maintain the results for a longer period of time. After you have your first treatment, it is usual to have follow-up nose filler treatment approximately 6 to 12 months later to maintain your enhanced appearance although everyone is different with some people requiring nose filler later. Here at Centre for Surgery, our practitioners are happy to advise you on went to seek maintenance top-up treatments after your initial non-surgical nose job procedure.
RELATED: What is a liquid rhinoplasty?
What does a non-surgical nose job involve?
A non-surgical nose job is also known as a liquid rhinoplasty and involves the injection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to alter the shape of the nose. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found within the body and has a gel-like consistency which is expertly injected into targeted areas of the nose for enhancement of nasal definition or improved volume. Once the filler has been injected into the deeper part of the skin, it will gradually settle into a more stable shape which will then result in enhancement of the nasal features. Duration of treatment is typically from 6 to 18 months with the longevity of results being dependent on the initial volume of nose filler which has been injected into the nose and the type of dermal filler used with certain types of filler such as Juvederm Voluma lasting a lot longer. A patient’s skin type can also influence the results of a liquid nose job.
What should you avoid after having nose fillers?
Immediately after the nose filler treatment, you should avoid touching or manipulating any part of the nose. There will be a mild degree of swelling and redness at the injection sites for the first 24 hours and this should be allowed to settle down on its own. You should also avoid exposure to excessively hot or cold environments and avoid wearing large and heavy spectacles for at least 3 to 5 days following a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty. In the first few days following treatment, the nose filler is still soft in inconsistency and any extrinsic pressure applied by glasses or extremes of temperature can result in skin indentations.
Can wearing glasses too soon cause damage to the nose?
Yes, wearing large and heavy glasses continuously straight after your treatment and for up to four weeks after can result in visible skin indentations most noticeable at the point where the glasses contact your nose. During the first week after treatment, the dermal filler still has a soft consistency and can easily be moulded by pressure applied to the part of the nose that has had dermal filler injected. Having said that, there is no hard and fast rule as to whether people should wear spectacles after having a nose enhancement treatment. It is important to follow your practitioner’s post-treatment care instructions to make sure you get the best results and avoid complications.
