Nose Threadlift

Aesthetically speaking, a lot of people prefer noses that are slender and well-defined from nose bridge to tip. Unfortunately, this is not what some people are born with. A flat nose bridge and a wider nose tip is a common sight among Asians, especially Southeast Asians.

This is good news for those who want to improve their noses, but are hesitant to go under the knife. Aside from a rhinoplasty or “nose job”, people can now achieve a high nose bridge and pointed nose tip through a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure known as the nose thread lift.

What is nose threadlift?

Nose thread lift is a procedure that uses Polydioxanone (PDO) threads that work to enhance certain parts of the nose to which they are inserted into, such as the nose bridge and tip. The results are similar to a rhinoplasty, however, the threads used are absorbed and dissolved by the body over time.

A nose thread lift will result in a patient gaining a:

  • Higher nose bridge
  • More natural-looking nose
  • Sharper nose tip
  • Better defined nose contour

What is the process of getting a nose thread lift like?

An initial consultation is done with the doctor to discuss the results that the patient expects to see. During this time, the doctor assesses the patient’s needs and determines the number of threads required to achieve optimal results. Once this is set in place, the procedure begins with a thorough cleansing of the areas of the nose where the threads are to be inserted.

After this, local anesthesia is injected on the tip of the nose to numb the area. The PDO threads are then injected into the nose using blunt cannulas. These threads will do a variety of lifting, sculpting, and contouring which will alter the shape of your nose and improve its visual aesthetics.

Nose thread lifts take around 30 minutes to fully complete. You will not feel any pain or major discomfort throughout the procedure due to the application of local anesthesia.

In general, around 8-20 threads are used for lifting the nose bridge and 2-10 threads are used to lift the nose tip area.


Nose thread lifts are not associated with any major negative side effects and are generally considered to be a safe procedure. PDO is commonly used as material for surgical thread for sutures and is unlikely to be rejected by the body. There are a few risks involved with getting a nose thread lift, such as potential bruising, discomfort, swelling around the areas and thread extrusion.

After the procedure, there will be some swelling which will last for a few hours. There will be bruise marks on some of the insertion sites which will disappear over the next few days.

Nose thread lift will give you immediate results, with the nose being lifted and sculpted more aesthetically. The effects are semi-permanent and will last for around 12-18 months, until the PDO threads are naturally absorbed by the body.
