The latest procedure called Nose Threadlift gives you a higher and straighter nose and a more defined nose tip without having to undergo a rhinoplastry or fillers augmentation. As it is non-surgical and minimally invasive, Nose Threadlift has been gaining popularity especially in Korea and Japan.

How does it work?

The Nose Threadlift utilises advanced PDO (polydioxanone) 3-dimensionally barbed threads which are placed under the skin to improve the contour of the nose i.e. elevate the nose bridge and/or tip which stimulating collagen formation to lift and support the desired contour.

This treatment is also done under local anaesthesia and requires about 15-30 minutes. The number of threads required will be determined by the attending doctor based on the existing shape of the nose. The results are immediately visible and our trained doctors and staff will also advise you accordingly about the post-treatment dos and don’ts.

How can The Chelsea Clinic help?

The results of Nose Threadlift rely primarily on both the doctor’s skills and materials used. While the board of doctors at The Chelsea Clinic are experienced and certified in the areas of aesthetics, The Chelsea Clinic carries the most suitable nose threads from Korea.

When the correct threads are selected and sufficiently used, the lifting, scaffolding and contouring effects of the nose is maximized, given the patient the most optimal results. As such, there is little downtime or side effects, hence minimizing pain, time and cost.

Possible side effects:

Nose Threadlift is a procedure with a very good safety profile. The procedure itself is done under strict sterile conditions to minimise any risk of infection. The placement of the threads is normally done in such a way that no scars will be visible.

As with fillers, some discomfort, redness and bruising may occur immediately after the procedure but this is temporary. Korean threadlifts, however, are not associated with any of the previously mentioned vascular complications that can rarely occur with fillers.


How long does it last?

The embedded threads normally completely dissolves after about 6 months but the collagen that forms during that time will help to support the new shape of the nose for a much longer period. Therefore, Nose Threadlift normally lasts for 1 to 1.5 years.

However, similar procedure can be repeated after 6-12 months for best results.


Should I get fillers or a threadlift?

To highlight some of the similarities and differences between nose filler injection and Korean nose threadlift:

1) Threadlifts are able to achieve a higher nose tip, which is more difficult to achieve with nose filler injections
2) Threadlifts are not associated with some of the rare, but serious vascular complications or risks like spread, mitigation or lump formation that can be associated with filler injections. Henceforth, threadlift may provide a better alternative.
3) Threadlifts do not spread out to broaden the nose which can occur with nose filler injections
4) Both can give excellent improvement in the nose contour when done properly
5) Both treatments have good longevity and can be repeated when the effects start to wane.
In actual fact, nose fillers and threadlifts need not necessarily be done in isolation. The effects can be combined to give a more dramatic, longer lasting result. Our doctors would be more than happy to advise you further on how you can attain the nose contour that you’ve always wanted.
