Create a prominent symmetrical nose bridge. The nose is often the weakest link of many Asians – lacking in height, poor in definition and projection combined with rather unsightly nostril sizes.Book Appointment
It is an advanced technology where small threads are inserted into the nose to give it a better shape, height, and definition. The thread is super thin, about 0.12 mm, and is employed to lift and sharpen a nose. It is made of polydioxanone or PDO. If it sounds familiar, it is because surgeons often use it to close wounds. It is a synthetic yet biodegradable polymer, which is absorbed by the body – usually over the course of six to twelve months after being sewn in. This makes it relatively safe for nose threads.

Threads are inserted into the nose to give it immediate mechanical support.
These threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a 100% bio-absorbable material. This technology allows the threads will dissolve naturally in the nose over the next few months.The threads act like scaffold in your nose allowing a higher and more prominent nose bridge and a sharper, more projected nose tip.
During your consultation, our gentle and caring dentists will do a physical assesment of your wisdom tooth, including X-rays to determine if your wisdom tooth needs to be removed.
During the day of surgery, you will be given local anesthetic to numb your mouth area. Wisdom tooth extraction is generally a safe and straightforward procedure, which is normally completed within an hour or two.
After your surgery, our dentists will prescribe you antibiotics to prevent infection, and you will be advised on what foods and drinks to take. Most people generally heal and are fully recovered in a week or two.
No. Nose thread lift is not painful. It is very well tolerated by most patients because numbing medications (local anesthesia) is given.
It’s important to understand that while no lifting technique can produce permanent results, facelift surgery will usually produce longer lasting results than a thread lift. The results of facelift surgery can last up to a decade, whereas a thread lift will generally last from one to three years.
Usually four to 16 threads are applied in a treatment, requiring a local anaesthetic, that can last from 20 minutes to an hour. Expect mild to moderate swelling, but recovery time is on average one to two days
The threads used for nose thread lift are made of polydioxanone (PDO) and they are completely absorbed over time. In fact, 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.
Results from a Nose Thread Lift treatment can usually last for about 1-2 years. If the treatment is repeated 9 months after the initial treatment, you can expect the result to be longer-lasting
