Nose Thread Lift - Enhancing Your Nose Without Surgery

In the past, when people talk about augmenting the nose, we think of the traditional rhinoplasty. It usually involves going under the knife to correct and reconstruct the nose by separating the nasal skin and the soft tissues to correct them. No matter how experienced the surgeon may be, a rhinoplasty has associated surgical risks. But now with the advancement of  medical technology, non-surgical nose thread lift is gaining popularity in Singapore.

If you are thinking of giving nose thread lift a try? Here are some frequently asked questions that you may have:

What is nose thread lift?

Nose Thread lift is an aesthetic procedure that can improve your nose contours and also enhance the shape and height of your nose without surgery by inserting threads  horizontally into the nose bridge to shape it.

What Are Nose Threads Made of? Are They Safe?

The threads that doctors use for nose thread lift are made of polydioxanone (PDO). PDO is a synthetic absorbable thread that surgeons use to stitch wounds after a surgery. It is completely safe and bio-compatible with the human body.

About 6 months after the nose thread lift treatment, the threads will fully dissolve and your nose will continue to stay in its lifted position for another 8 to 12 months.

Is There a Risk of Blindness After the Nose Thread Lift Treatment?

The risk of causing blindness from undergoing a nose thread lift treatment is almost non-existent – unlike dermal filler treatment.

Dermal fillers have been used to perform nose augmentation by doctors for many years. Even though with many years of experience, some doctors prefer not to perform nose filler treatment because of the risk of vascular complications such as skin necrosis and even blindness caused by fillers. 

On the other hand, nose thread lift using PDO threads are inserted using blunt cannulas to achieve the desired height and projection of the nose by building a scaffold using the threads. Results of nose thread lift are impressive and there is virtually no risk of blindness.

How Many Sessions Are Needed to See Result?

One treatment is enough to see a visible result. With the correct type of threads used and correct placement of the threads, you should be able to see good inprovements after one treatment. The treads will remain in the nose for 6 months. When they dissolve, the nose will remain in its lifted position for another 8 to 12 months because of the stimulation of collagen from the threads. 

If repeated regularly, you may see results lasting for up to 24 months or even longer, depending on individual.

Cost of Treatment

Starts from S$600 depending on the number of threads required.
