Can I add more filler to my nose?

Q: Hi! 3 days ago I had filler injected to my nose to make my nose straight and hide the bump. He injected filler into two areas (top and bottom of my nose) and I loved the result but now 3 days later the bump is coming back!!! What can I do? When can I add a little more filler and why have the results changed? Please help!

A: After nonsurgical rhinoplasty there is always a period of initial swelling (typically 3-4 days) followed by resolution of the swelling.  Once the filler has had a chance to fully “settle” (~2 weeks) this is an appropriate time to go for a touch-up if necessary.
