A nose job over a cup of tea …….

The nose is the only part of your face that protrudes from your face. It is the most defining feature of the face that impacts all the other features of the face.

Ever looked at your nose and thought, ‘can this look better?’

If you’re not keen for surgery and repeated usage of fillers again and again to correct deformities, the nose thread lift maybe an option for you.

Choose Y-KO or HIKO.

 

Nose Thread Lift

 

Where are these techniques from?

These were invented and developed in South Korea. The typical Asian nose has a low bridge, short nose, an upturned nose tip that is bulbous and harbors a short collumella. The nose thread lift may correct these problems. It works well correcting defects in the Caucasian nose.

 

What are Nose Thread Lift threads?

PDO stands for Polydioxanone. Its material has been used in surgical sutures for a very long time in surgeries.

 

 

How does the Nose Thread Lift work?

The threads that are placed delicately into the nose dissolve in the body by 9 months. They work by mechanically lifting tissues with their barbs and as the threads remain in situ, they stimulate natural collagen production by your own tissues. This means that the results of the nose thread lift will continue to improve, making it more beneficial as you age.

 

 

How long does the Nose Thread Lift last?

1-2 years

 

How long does a Nose Thread Lift take?

It takes about 30 minutes to carry out the procedure. What takes a little longer is the consultation and injecting the anaesthesia in certain areas to make it pain free thereafter.

 

Is a Nose Thread Lift painful?

The only discomfort you may feel is when anaesthetic is being administered. It is delivered through 4 tiny injections smaller than a insulin syringe.

 

How is the Nose Thread Lift carried out?

A thorough consultation is required to ensure it is safe and that this is the right procedure for you.

Then several anatomical markings and measurements will be taken and marked.

A small amount of local anaesthetic is injected in and around the nose to numb the area.

A small puncture will made with a needle in the tip of the nose to give access for threads to be inserted.

Multiple threads are inserted in various angles and layers to achieve the result that you desire.

Is the Nose Thread Lift procedure for you?

If you are looking for a correction of deformities without the risks with surgery, this is an option you should look into.

If you are a person who only gets HA filler treatment and are tired of the downtime.

If you are a person who is not satisfied with HA filler.

If you are a person who wants minimal invasive treatment.

If you are a person who needs conclusive results.

If you are a person who is looking for an affordable solution.

If you are a person who is concerned with the safety issue of HA fillers.

This procedure may enhance your nose to achieve a:

– sharper and sleeker nose tip;

– sharper and slimmer nose bridge;

– straighter nose bridge;

– higher nose bridge;

– defined nose bridge;

– narrowing of ala flares.

 

 

 

What can be obtained with a Nose Thread Lift?

– Higher or longer noses bridge

– Straight nose bridge for deviated noses

– Sharper and sleeker nose bridge

– Narrower nose tip

– Tip rotation correction

– Narrower ala of the nose

What are the advantages of Nose Thread Lift over HA Dermal Fillers?

HA Fillers have an affinity to splay sideways and widen the nose bridge.

The threads are made of a soft material, which doesn’t penetrate the vital vessels in the nose nor migrate from position of placement which prevents severe inflammation or necrosis of nose.

Immediate augmentation result by placing multiple threads.

An approximately 20% fat reduction caused by the threads.

Leaves no scars, and looks natural.

Uniquely barbed polydioxanone thread gives dramatic result within 10 minutes.

Exlcusion of any incisions.

Short downtime.

Stimulates patient’s intrinsic healing process.

Faster Recovery

Can last approximately twice as long as fillers with the added advantage of stimulation of one’s own collagen.

 

What are the risks of Nose Thread Lift?

Once the threads are placed, they can’t be dissolved. They will require surgical removal with delicate extrusion.

The nose thread lifts are unable to correct nasal dorsal humps or bumps. Sometimes this has to be combined with HA Fillers for a better result.

 

What are the side effects of Nose Thread Lift?

Side effects are rare, mild bruising and swelling might occur, but this usually fades quickly (you can minimise bruising by avoiding medication aforementioned before the procedure).

Swelling may occur and usually subsides within 7-10 days.

Redness, mild tenderness, itchiness and firmness around the injection sites are common but usually subsides within 7-10 days.

Local infection (please adhere to the post-treatment advice to avoid infection, antibiotics might be needed in such cases).

Asymmetry, threads being felt under the skin, thread migration and thread breakage are other complications which have been observed and may occur.

 

How much does a Nose Thread Lift cost?

Depending on the numerous number of issues that need to be addressed, prices usually start at £1,500

 

Nose Thread Lift Post Procedure Instructions?

Avoid drinking alcohol or partaking in strenuous exercise, as it may result in additional bruising for 72 hours.

Keep your head elevated at least 30 degrees for the first three nights.

You may apply ice or cold towel to the surgical sites for the first 24 hours. (Apply for 20 min on and 20 min off in the period of time)

Avoid any direct pressure to the face and area where the threads were placed for  3 weeks after procedure has been performed. (Example: sleeping on your face, known as the face down position, etc.)

You may wash your face. Be careful when washing your face near the nose area where the punctures were made.

Until the swelling and redness have resolved, avoid intense heat in the treated area(s). This includes sunbathing, tanning, saunas, hot tubs, or hot wax.

To help alleviate bruising, we recommend taking Arnica or Bromelain, eating fresh pineapple, and applying ice to the area.

To help alleviate swelling, we recommend an antihistamine during the day, like Zyrtec or Claritin, and Benedryl at night.

Sunscreen and makeup can be applied after 4 hours and you may use a gentle cleanser on the area.

Avoid planning any formal events for at least 7 days following the procedure to allow for adequate healing.

You may gently wash your treatment areas however avoid rubbing, scrubbing, facials, waxing and laser treatments for 7 – 10 days following treatment.

Apply SPF50 or higher and avoid excessive sun exposure to prevent hyperpigmentation.

Fall into Facetime with our awesome autumn offer

As the days grow shorter and the temperature starts to fall, it’s common for us to start looking and feeling less than our best. Skin starts renewing at a slower rate, we have to work harder to get our daily dose of vitamin D (typically soaked up from sunshine), and exercising outdoors feels less appealing. Many of us know too well the temptation to slip into our turtleneck tops, puffy coats, and fluffy socks, and curl up for the rest of the winter.

To help our clients feel like the best version of themselves as we approach the autumn equinox on 23 September, we are running a series of exclusive treatment promotions. With autumn being the perfect time for any cosmetic procedures, thanks to cooler temperatures and less sunshine (which can alter the efficacy of facial peels and laser treatments), now’s the time to take advantage and invest in yourself.

Jennifer Lopez’s beauty secrets revealed!

J-Lo recently celebrated her 50th birthday, but the pop icon looks barely a day over 30. Here we take a guess at the secrets behind what’s keeping this diva looking so divine. To help you understand the behind-the-scenes beauty of achieving such a miraculously youth look, we’ve done some expert analysis for you and produced a cheat sheet for everyone looking to age so gracefully.

What’s down to simply good genes? And what can only be achieved with a nip, tuck and a tweak? Here’s our opinion, from brow to toe.  

Looking at before and after images of Jennifer Lopez, it is obvious she has certainly had a number of cosmetic treatments done. And by cosmetic treatments, we don’t necessarily mean cosmetic surgery, per se. 

Forehead – She is certainly using muscle relaxing treatments to the forehead to relax her forehead lines with botulinum toxin, and around the eyes, too, to prevent any crow feet wrinkles forming around this delicate region. 

Brows – Her eyebrows have maintained their position likely due to an eyebrow lift, which has the added effect of keeping her eyes looking more open, creating a youthful appearance. She doesn’t have the tired appearance look that one gets with the aging process. 

Eyes – Her under eyes look like they have filler in the tear trough region or usage of PDO thread. This has the added benefit of not just lifting the skin, stimulating collagen production, tightening the pores, promoting new blood vessel formation and orbital rejuvenation.

Nose  – She has almost certainly had a rhinoplasty, alarplasty and tip refinement to her nose. The nasal bridge appears narrower and straighter and her alas, (the nostril area of the nose) have been reduced in size because they are in line with her inter-canthal distance (the distance between her medial part of the eyes). Mind you, most of these outcomes can also be achieved with PDO threads in specific regions of the nose, so this also may have been used.

Cheeks – Her cheeks look filled with cheek filler. They appear well defined and contoured, enabling her to use less makeup to achieve the effect of high cheekbones.

Naso-labial area – She doesn’t appear to have deep smile lines or nasolabial folds, which might be attributed to the usage of dermal fillers or a thread lift in that area.

Lips- Her lips look augmented both in definition (around the lips) and volume (within the lips) with the help of fillers.

Jaw – Her jaw angle and jawline looks cosmetically tweaked, which may be due to using fillers to contour the jaw. The margins of the jaw are more protruded, broader, and more angular, which is the case when jawline augmentation and refinement is done. It could also be the case that she has had toxin injected into the masseters to give her a more v-shaped jawline. 

Chin – Her chin looks augmented to put it in proportion to her facial dimensions. This aides the perception of a refined jawline, as the skin is tight around that region. She also doesn’t have visible marionette lines (the lines from the angle of the mouth to the chin), which implies that they have been filled with filler or PDO threaded.

Skin – Her skin looks radiant and could be due to laser therapy to the skin. Laser therapy revitalises the skin whilst reducing discolouration of the skin and evening out of her skin tone. No doubt she has a team of Hollywood facialists and make-up artists taking great care of her skin.

Good genes – Of course, everyone’s looks are dictated by their genes; and it would seem she has a very good set of genes that make her more predisposed towards aging gracefully. It has also helped that she has physically maintained herself and kept herself healthy. However, it would be hard to fathom a 50 year old woman looking this youthful without the help of cosmetic interventions and tweakments!

5 reasons why tweakments are the biggest beauty trend of 2019 

At Harley Street Surgery, we’ve noticed the trend for tweakments; non-surgical lifts, tweaks, freezes, fluffs, fills, peels and puffs – and they are soaring in popularity with our patients. Women and men are turning to tweakments as opposed to full-blown surgical interventions in the bid to age naturally and gradually. We’re digging into the trend here with five reasons why it’s happening, and why we’ll see it continuing into 2020.

It’s the new aesthetic trend

Consumers are shifting towards the natural, individualistic beauty look over a fake, homogenised, one-size-fits-all look. Liquid facelifts, PRP & PRF, non-surgical nose jobs and PDO contouring tap into this new mindset of people wanting to look like themselves, but a little more refined. Tweakments offer a boost to our confidence, ease the effects of aging, and aren’t obvious to our friends and family. 

You don’t look like you’ve had anything ‘done’ 

Severe facelifts or noses that look like they’ve been ‘done’ a few too many times have put people off traditional plastic surgery methods. Consumers are moving  ‘beyond botox’ and ‘Extreme Makeover’ style transformations to prefer more subtle, incremental courses of high-technology treatments that offer fluffs and puffs every other month to maintain their natural beauty. Staples and bandages are out, “I woke up like this” beauty is in.  

You can be in’n’out   

Tweakments can be done on a lunchtime break. Clients love the ease of being in’n’out on a break from work and it’s a more attractive choice than lengthy, time-consuming operations.

1 – Results are highly personalisable

If done with a qualified cosmetic doctor, the incredible results achieved with tweakments can sometimes far surpass those achieved with surgical interventions. Tweakments are super effective with clients suffering from early signs of aging – outcomes can be fine-tuned to achieve individualised goals.

2 – It’s quick and easy and you’ll look amazing 

Instead of the pain and lengthy recovery time needed when going under the knife, with tweakments, you can book, attend and recover on the same day. Minimal downtime or recovery is needed and treatments can be slotted easily into your daily routine. 

3 – Which tweakments are available at Harley Street Surgery? 

Dr. Bhar’s tweakments are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful looking results. Harley Street Surgery offers all state-of-the-art tweakments, including peels, fillers, PFP, PRP, medical facials, phenol peels, liquid facials, diamond microdermabrasion, PDO contouring and rejuvenation, eDermastamp, injectable moisturisers, botox, and lasers, to name but a few.

How to get a nose job… without the surgery

The decision to get a nose job is often about much more than looks. Humps, bumps, witch tips, crooked bridges, flared nostrils, strawberry blobs; the pursuit of a perfectly shaped nose has long been the preoccupation of many men and women due to its prominence on the face and the intrinsic role it plays in our self-confidence.

How does a PDO nose augmentation work?

PDO threads are inserted into the nose to enhance the bridge and tip, depending on your goals. Once inserted and pulled tight, the cog threads will form together to create a scaffolding structure, helping to lift the nose tip, making it sharper and smaller and adding greater definition to the nose bridge.

What are the benefits?

-Results are immediately noticeable

-PDO threads stimulate collagen production, lifting any sagging skin around the nose area

-More youthful appearance to your face

-Very safe, straightforward and effective

-No recovery time required

-Non-invasive

-Affordable compared to rhinoplasty

-Offers less risk and pain than other surgical options

Are you a candidate for the perfect nose?

Rhinoplasties may be too severe an option for somebody looking for a small tweakments, or perhaps you’ve had a rhinoplasty and are looking to further refine the results? Either way, if you’re fretting about the shape of your nose, the PDO nose lift is the perfect solution for a personalisable, quick and safe result.

Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate if as well as being healthy you want to achieve any of the following nose augmentations:

-Reshape nose by reducing or increasing size
-Remove nose hump
-Alter shape of nose tip
-Narrow span of nostrils
-Change angle between nose and upper lip
-Define and resculpt your nose
