Discover the vital information you MUST know about who is not suitable for nose filler? with our detailed guide written by expert cosmetic doctors.


    While a non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose filler) is a great way to improvement the appearance of your nose, it isn’t for everyone.

    There are a few select cases where a non-surgical rhinoplasty is not indicated.

    Medical conditions

    • Dermal fillers can cause a flare of uncontrolled autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. These conditions must be well controlled before having treatment.
    • If you have allergies to lidocaine or other ingredients in fillers, you will not be suitable.

    Anatomical considerations

    • Large nasal base or wide nostrils: Fillers are not an effective way to reduce wide-set nostrils, or camouflage very prominent bumps. They are also limited in noses with a very high bump or a vertical slope.
    • Fillers cannot improve major structural problems like a deviated septum or breathing difficulties.

    Personal factors

    • If you have unrealistic expectations about what fillers can achieve, you may be disappointed with the results. A good doctor will be realistic with you about the possible range of results.
    • If you have body dysmorphic disorder, then fillers are unlikely to improve your self-esteem and should be avoided.

    Additionally, pregnant or breastfeeding women are not suitable for nose fillers. Dermal fillers have not been tested for safety in pregnant and breastfeeding women.
