The procedure uses absorbable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO) that are 100% bio-compatible with the human body. As the PDO threads dissolve, these ultra-fine biodegradable threads create new tissue fibroblasts and collagen, giving a tightening effect and further enhances the nose contour.
It offers a safe, effective and non-invasive alternative to traditional nose augmentation procedures like rhinoplasty. It is perfect for patients who want to achieve their desired nose bridge and nose tip without going for a nose surgery and all the procedures that come with it — the anaesthesia, incisions, scarring and aftercare. It requires minimal downtime as well.
The procedure uses absorbable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO) to lift the nose. These PDO threads have been used in surgical applications for many years and are completely safe and 100% bio-compatible with the human body.
This Hiko nose thread lift procedure combines two anti-ageing treatments into one.
First, the polydioxanone (PDO) threads physically lift and tighten the nose, achieving immediate results of a higher and straighter nose. As the PDO threads dissolve, these ultra-fine biodegradable threads create new tissue fibroblasts and stimulate collagen production. This gives a tightening effect and further enhances the nose contour. Since the nose threads stimulate natural collagen production, the results of the procedure are long-term, even after the nose threads used have completely dissolved.
The embedded threads used will completely dissolve 6 to 8 months after the nose thread lift treatment. However, the nose will stay in its lifted position for another 8 to 12 months.
The nose thread lift procedure is a non-invasive procedure. First, numbing cream will be applied to the nose and a local anaesthetic will be injected into the nose area. The doctor will then mark out the areas around the nose where she will inject. After that, the nose threads are carefully placed horizontally into the nose bridge and vertically into the nose tip via needles. Once the nose threads are inserted, the threads physically lift and tighten, resulting in a higher nose.
You may feel some pressure and tugging around the nose area during the procedure but most patients find the experience comfortable and tolerable. The procedure is painless because of the anaesthesia and is over in under 10 minutes.
The Hiko nose thread lift procedure is an effective treatment which brings optimal results by enhancing nose tip projection. This gives you a higher, straighter and more defined nose bridge without requiring surgery.
Generally, patients will observe these results on their nose appearance:
The nose thread lift procedure requires minimal downtime. There may be mild discomfort in the nose area after the nose threads are inserted. There could be some bruising and swelling of the nose, which will resolve itself with the help of cold compressions over a short duration of time.
The embedded threads will completely dissolve 6 to 8 months after the treatment. However, the nose will stay in its lifted position for another 8 to 12 months.
For more long-lasting results, it is recommended to repeat the treatment 9 to 12 months after the initial treatment.
Yes. The nose thread lift procedure is one of the safest nose augmentation procedures available in Singapore. The procedure uses absorbable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO) to lift the nose. These threads have been used in surgical applications (in surgical sutures) for many years and are completely safe and 100% bio-compatible with the human body.
The nose thread lift procedure is suitable for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their nose without surgical application. It is safer and more effective than alternative procedures like nose fillers while helping achieve the same natural-looking projected nose tip and a more defined nose bridge.
Nose thread lifts are able to achieve a higher and sharper nose tip, which is more difficult to achieve with nose filler injections. The nose thread lift is also not associated with serious vascular complications that can be associated with nose filler injections. They are safer and better in achieving the desired nose bridge. The nose thread lift also does not spread out to broaden the nose, which is an effect that can occur with nose filler injections.
However, good results can still be achieved with nose fillers if it is done correctly. In fact, nose fillers and the nose thread lift can be combined to give a more dramatic, longer-lasting result. Please arrange a consultation at our clinic and our doctors will advise you further on how you can attain your desired nose contour.
A nose thread lift is a non-surgical and minimally invasive nose augmentation procedure, while a rhinoplasty is an invasive surgery. The rhinoplasty involves reshaping the bone and cartilage in the nose area, where the surgeon has to make incisions to elevate the nose bridge.
The nose thread lift offers a safe and non-invasive alternative to traditional nose augmentation procedures, producing an enhanced yet natural-looking nose without surgery and the procedures that come with it — the anaesthesia, incisions, scarring and aftercare. It requires minimal downtime as well.
