I had injectable rhinoplasty done the other day. I just got hit in the nose moderately hard. How easy is it for the filler to get knocked out of place?

In brief: Not usually

Rarely does dermal filler move if it has been in place for awhile.

In brief: Difficult

If you are more than a couple days after injection then it is unlikely for the filler to become dislodged.

In brief: Unlikely

Temporary injectable fillers tend to stay where they are placed.
It would likely take a very precise blow to the area of filler in the early period to cause a change. You should examine your nose and return to your injector if you have any concerns. If it was an ha compound, the good thing would be that these products can be dissolved if they are significantly displaced.

In brief: Filler in nose

If the product was just injected, it can be moved around in the first few days.
Have your news evaluated by the surgeon who injected you if there are any concerns.

In brief: Difficult

It depends on how hard you were hit, where you were hit, and the type of filler used to some extent.
However, it would be difficult to move the filler from one strike to the nose. Overall, i would say you have little worries.
