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.

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.
