What is a Nose Threadlift?

A nose threadlift is a non-surgical procedure that involves the use of threads to lift and reshape the nose. It is a less invasive alternative to traditional nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty.

How Does a Nose Threadlift Work?

During a nose threadlift, thin, absorbable threads are inserted into the skin through a small entry point at the nose tip. These threads are made of polylactic acid (PCL) or polydioxanone (PDO), which are biocompatible materials that are commonly used in medical suture threads. These threads add volume and help to lift and shape the nose.

The threads also help stimulate the production of collagen, thereby creating a scaffold-like structure that helps to lift and reshape the nose.

How many threads are needed?

During the consultation, the doctor will assess your facial structure, skin quality and nose shape before advising you on the ideal number of threads needed.

On average, 6 to 12 threads may be inserted.

What are the Benefits of a Nose Threadlift?

There are several benefits to a nose threadlift, including:

  • Quick recovery time: Unlike traditional nose surgery, a nose threadlift has a much shorter recovery time. Patients can typically return to their normal activities within a few days.
  • Minimal scarring: Since the threads are inserted through a small entry site in the nose tip, there is minimal scarring.
  • Natural-looking results: The results of a nose threadlift are subtle and natural-looking. It can help to enhance the overall appearance of the nose without drastically altering its shape.
  • Non-surgical: A nose threadlift is a non-surgical procedure, which means there is no need for general anaesthesia or a hospital stay.
  • Customisable: The threads can be tailored to the individual needs of each patient, allowing for a customised treatment plan.

How Long Does a Nose Threadlift Last?

The results of a nose threadlift can last for up to two years, although this can vary depending on the individual patient. The threads gradually dissolve over time, and the results will slowly begin to fade. The effects of the treatment can be maintained with follow-up treatments.

Is a Nose Threadlift Painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during a nose threadlift. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, which numbs the area being treated. Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising after the procedure, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days.

Are There Any Risks or Complications Associated with a Nose Threadlift?

One potential risk of a nose threadlift is infection. As with any procedure that involves breaking the skin, there is a risk of infection if proper sterilization and hygiene measures are not followed. To minimize the risk of infection, it is important to choose a reputable and experienced provider who follows proper infection control protocols.

Another risk of a nose threadlift is the possibility of thread breakage or displacement. The threads used in a nose threadlift are temporary and will eventually dissolve over time. However, if the threads break or become displaced before they dissolve, it can result in uneven contouring or asymmetry of the nose.

There is also a risk of allergic reaction to the materials used in the threads. The threads used in a nose threadlift are typically made of synthetic materials, such as polydioxanone (PDO), which can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. To minimize the risk of an allergic reaction, it is important to disclose any allergies or sensitivities to your provider before the procedure.

In rare cases, a nose threadlift can result in scarring or skin damage. This can occur if the threads are inserted too deeply or if the skin is damaged during the procedure. To minimize the risk of scarring or skin damage, it is important to choose a provider who is experienced and skilled in the technique.

Overall, the risks and complications of a nose threadlift are generally minimal when the procedure is performed by a reputable and experienced provider. However, it is important to carefully consider the potential risks and complications before undergoing any cosmetic procedure.
