Nose thread lift Singapore

what is a nose thread lift?

Due to genetics, Asians tend to have a shorter and flatter nose without a defined nose tip and bridge. Many patients in Singapore don't have the nose they desire. This has caused many Asians to turn to nose fillers as a non-surgical way to get a higher nose bridge. However, nose fillers are not the only solution for this. An alternative to nose fillers that has been gaining popularity is the nose thread lift.

How do nose thread lifts work?

Originating from Korea, the nose thread lift in Singapore are rapidly becoming more and more popular. Biocompatible surgical sutures or threads are inserted into the nose via a tiny needle puncture, which results in an augment and lift the height of the nose. Unlike nose fillers, these threads used in a nose thread lift are and made of polydioxanone (PDO), a 100% absorbable material used for many years in surgery.

Once inserted, nose threads occupy space, immediately supporting and defining the nose bridge. Also unlike nose fillers, over time, PDO nose threads act as a scaffold to stimulate collagen production while gradually dissolving naturally. The end result of the PDO nose threadlift is a by-product of the PDO thread type, number of threads used and area of nose tip worked on and the approach to the lift performed by the doctor.

Benefits of Nose Threadlift

what makes it special?

Narrower, more defined nose bridge

Unlike fillers that tend to spread towards the side leading widening of the nose bridge after injection (the so-called ‘avatar nose’), PDO nose threads stay in position and are unlikely to migrate.

Natural Feel

All fillers, including nose fillers are gels. Even the hardest nose filler feels firm at best. PDO nose threads feel more like a real nose to touch.

No risk of vascular blockage

Nose filler injections into the nose carry a risk of the gel-like material entering the blood vessels causing obstruction. This nose lift or nose tip definition using fillers in Singapore can lead to interruption of blood supply to the skin or even the eyes or brain, leading to death of tissues. Nose threadlift uses suture material to act as a solid filler, avoiding this risk.

Am I a good candidate for nose thread lifts?

If you’ve had a surgical rhinoplasty before, you may not be a good candidate for a nose thread lift. You will primarily be a good candidate for a nose thread lift if you are looking to make your nose bridge sharper and more defined. However, if you are looking to reduce the size of your nose tip and nostrils, a nose thread lift may not be suitable for you and you might need to consider surgery instead.

in Singapore

dr wan's perspective

Nose thread lift for a nose bridge can give results amazingly close to that of nose implants, making it suitable for patients that desire results yet hesitate to go under the knife. This is provided a sufficient number of threads with the correct length, thickness are inserted precisely to support the nose structure. 

Many times, patients are fixated on getting the cheapest nose threadlift in Singapore but like most things, you get what you pay for. A nose thread lift in Singapore may be offered cheaply but often only involve the insertion of a few standard length threads (typically fewer than 10). Nose threads actually come from the supplier in standard thicknesses and lengths, pre-mounted on insertion cannulas. Many doctors would use these for nose thread lift without further customization to the patient’s nose structure. Why? Because this is fast, easy and doesn’t cost much for the doctor.

Standard sized threads can sometimes work well without customizing – if you happen to have a standard size nose or something very close. Other times, standard size threads may lead to problems:

  • Too short – May lead to a “step-off” over the nose bridge or nose tip
  • Too long – May lead to a curved or crooked bridge if pushed all the way in or risk thread protrusion through the nose tip if not pushed all the way in

Compared to just inserting standard threads, customization for a nose thread lift takes more than twice the time but it will produce a more nuanced and bespoke result catered to your individual nose structure that complements your facial features.
