The nose thread lift is a trending topic, particularly among people of Asian descent. This is relatable because, for most of us, our noses don’t have the ‘ideal definition’ that we desire.

Traditionally, we’d correct this through surgical rhinoplasty procedures, but that seems to be fading away pretty quickly, probably due to the risk factors and downtime attached to it. Therefore, if you wish for a non-surgical nose job to give your nose a unique definition, your best bet would be to book a consultation at to get a nose thread lift.

Is Nose Thread Lift Safe?

Nose thread lift first gained popularity in Korea, getting the name ‘Hiko’ from the phrases’ high’ and ‘ko,’ which can loosely be translated to ‘nose’ in Korean. Nose thread lift is considered safer than surgical rhinoplasty procedures known to have adverse complications when not done correctly.

You also get to recover quickly from the treatment and will be able to resume your routine activities almost immediately. Perhaps the only concern would be minor bruising or soreness, which will also resolve in a few days.

How Does Nose Thread Lift Work?

If you’re searching for one of the world’s best locations to get nose thread lift, Singapore is one of the few destinations you will need to keep in mind. Apart from the fact that the aesthetic clinics use high-grade pieces of equipment’, the services are less costly, and you can easily access this destination from the E.U and U.S.

Here’s how nose thread lift works;

The non-surgical nose thread lift uses polydioxanone (PDO) thread materials that are absorbable and compatible with the human body. During the procedure, your aesthetic surgeon will insert the PDO threads horizontally into your nose bridge and vertically into its tip. The threads would then give your nose the desired structure by acting as a scaffolding structure to align and define your nose’s shape. 

Does Nose Thread Lift Hurt?

Your doctor will insert a blunt cannula beneath your skin to deposit the PDO thread materials. This means that they’re slightly invasive, so they’re not 100% pain-free. Depending on your pain threshold, your doctor will use a local anesthetic to minimize the possible discomfort due to this procedure. 

Your Choice of Aesthetic Doctor May Influence the Safety of your Nose Thread Lift Procedure

Even though this procedure may sound relatively simple, not everyone can do it. Ideally, it is prudent that you insist on having an aesthetic surgeon with a good track record in aesthetic procedures to help you get this procedure done.

With that being said, here are a few essential factors you must put into consideration.

  • Experience

The most straightforward way of determining if your aesthetic doctor in Singapore is experienced is by having a quick look at the before and after photos of the cases, they’ve addressed. A good doctor won’t hesitate to let you look at their library of pictures before deciding on the procedure.

You may also need to have a look at the number of cases they’ve addressed so far. Working with an experienced cosmetic surgeon will help allay any fears you may have about the procedure.

  • Recommendations

Do you have colleagues or loved ones who have undergone the procedure? If so, be sure to reach out for word of mouth recommendations.

If there is none, be sure to check out reviews about the clinic right on their website or on general review sites like Yelp or Google reviews. You can also check their social media pages to see the reviews they have from past clients. Don’t forget to review the negative reviews too since this will help you understand how the facility handles customer complaints.

  • Aftercare Protocol and Support

During your consultation, a good doctor will give you a detailed walkthrough of how the procedure works. They will also explain the possible risks and how you can avoid them. 

It doesn’t end there, though. A good treatment also involves good aftercare support. Therefore, the facility should give you a detailed breakdown of their aftercare protocol just in case you may need their help after the procedure.

  • The Types of Nose Lift Threads they will Use

Ideally, this is one of the most significant factors you should never overlook. Some aestheticians use smooth and short threads.

The primary concern with these types of threads is that since they’re smooth and thin, the results won’t be really impressive. On the other hand, they may also use thick threads designed with cogs (anchors) for effective lifting.

Here’s the booby trap; if you’re not the right patient for the thick threads with cogs, you may suffer trauma on the nose and permanent scarring. However, an experienced aesthetician in Singapore will determine the ideal number of threads quickly depending on the type and extent of modification you will need.
