Non-surgical Nose Contouring Claims
Using dermal filler to temporarily change the shape of your nose is a popular cosmetic procedure, but is not without risks. In fact, research suggests that as many as 1 in 20 people experience negative side effects after receiving a cosmetic treatment using injections of dermal filler.
Also known as a ‘non-surgical rhinoplasty’ or ‘non-surgical nose job’, there are a number of common problems that can result if the procedure is carried out poorly. These can include allergic reactions, bruising, pain and tenderness (which tend to be short-term issues), as well as more serious health consequences, such as tissue death (necrosis) and blindness, which can result in a lifelong impact on your health and wellbeing.
These more severe problems can occur when filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel, cutting off the blood supply to the surrounding area. Unfortunately, given that around 8 in 10 procedures are carried out by non-medical practitioners, these types of errors are always a risk.
If you have experienced negative side-effects from negligent nose contouring with dermal filler, you may be entitled to compensation. The damages you can potentially receive can be significant, especially for the most serious issues, such as necrosis and blindness.
This compensation can be essential if you need to pay for further cosmetic surgery to correct poorly carried out dermal injects, as well as covering lost wages if you need to take time off work and other expenses you have incurred. It can also go some way towards making amends for your pain and emotional distress.

Our no win no fee dermal filler nasal contouring claims service
We appreciate that most people are not in the position to pay for the cost of a cosmetic surgery negligence claim out of their own pockets. We therefore offer a no win, no fee claims service, meaning there is no upfront cost to start a claim.
Also called a ‘conditional fee agreement’ this type of deal means you only need to contribute towards our legal fees and expenses if we secure compensation for you. These costs will be based on a percentage of some of the compensation won, meaning you will always keep the majority of any settlement.
You have the right to complete transparency over the costs involved in a claim, so when you get in touch with our team, we will be happy to provide a clear breakdown of how our fees are calculated and all other associated costs.
How much compensation can you claim for negligent nose contouring with dermal filler?
How much a non-surgical nose job claim is worth will depend on various factors including:
- The health effects of the negligent treatment
- The emotional impact, including pain and suffering
- The effect on your life e.g. not feeling able to go out and enjoy previously pleasurable activities because of self-consciousness over your appearance
- The financial consequences e.g. the cost of additional cosmetic surgery to correct the damage, lost income due to needing to take time off work
There are two types of damages you can normally claim for cosmetic surgery negligence:
Financial Losses and Expenses – For specific financial losses. This includes things such as paying for private treatment and care, as well as lost income due to having to take time off work and not able to return to work, or perhaps not able to command the same level of income enjoyed before the cosmetic surgery.
General Compensation – For non-financial losses, such as pain, suffering and lifestyle changes.
We know that the potential value of your claim is often an important part of the decision-making process when thinking about pursuing a claim. We will therefore aim to provide an estimate of how much compensation you may be able to achieve as soon as possible. That way, you will be able to make an informed choice about your next steps.
How long do you have to make a compensation claim for non-surgical nasal contouring?
You will normally need to make a claim within 3 years of the procedure happening, or of the date when you first became aware of the negative side-effects.
However, different time limits can sometimes apply, depending the circumstances. We therefore recommend getting in touch with our specialist cosmetic surgery claims team as soon as possible to make sure you don’t miss out on the chance to claim.
