Nose Threadlift - Attractive Nasal Proportions
Nose threadlift is a non-surgical procedure to improve your nasal profile naturally. The nose occupies the central part of the face, and because of its location, recognizing the relationship with other areas of the face to balance harmony and proportion is essential.
Although there is no ideal nasal shape, we have to be aware of the various ethnic differences. While Caucasians tend to have taller and thinner noses, Africans tend to have a broad and flat nose. Asians on the other hand, have smaller nasal bones, lower nose bridge, and tend to have under-projected nasal tip.
Although aesthetic standards do vary among different ethnicities, sexes and across time, there are certain facial angles worth mentioning. For many asians that desire a higher nose bridge, we aim to improve the Nasofrontal angle. This angle is defined where 2 lines meet; the line from the frown area to the top of the nose, and the line from the tip of the nose to the top of it. The ideal angel should be within 115 - 130 degrees. There are other facial angles such as the Nasolabial and the Nasofacial angle that are important during evaluation before nose reshaping.
Why Nose Threadlift
While surgical rhinoplasty can improve aesthetic deformities, improve nasal airway obstruction and congenital problems, it carries significant risk. The complication rate for nasal surgeries ranges from 4 - 18.8%, and includes bleeding, infection, septal perforation, and nasal deformities.
Fillers have been used for nose augmentation, but have problems of migration, lumps and significant bruising. There have been cases of fillers causing blindness when placed near the nose region.
Nose Threadlift is associated with little downtime, does not have prolonged swelling and bruising associated with surgery, and is a much safer procedure to reshape the nose.
How does Nose Threadlift work?
The goal is to give you natural long lasting results with an emphasis on safety and efficacy.
Threads are made of biocompatible materials called polydioxanone (PDO). PDO stimulates your body's natural collagen production and acts as a scaffolding overtime to lift, contour and refine the nose.
The procedure is well tolerated by individuals. The area is first prepared and cleansed, local anaesthesia is used to enhance your comfort during the procedure. A single entry point is created at the tip of the nose, and threads are inserted in a specific direction underneath the skin of the nose. The number of threads used will depend on individual nasal anatomy, nose bridge height and desire. On average 6-12 threads are used in a single session.
How long do I need to recover after Nose Threadlift?
The Nose Threadlift procedure is very popular in Korea, Japan and Taiwan because it has very minimal social downtime and results are obvious after the procedure.
Temporary swelling, redness and bruising may occur after the procedure and fade in days.
The injection site mark will heal and close up in 1-2 weeks,
Unlike fillers where there is a chance of filler migration to the sides of the nose, this does not occur with nose thread lift.
How long does it last?
Polydioxanone (PDO) Threads are absorbed naturally by the body within a few months. During this time, new collagen are stimulated and grown around the threads.
Threads lasts 1 to 1.5 years, or more depending on individual lifestyle, metabolism and number of threads used.
