The nose is the most distinguishing feature of the face, and its form has a significant impact on the overall appearance of the face. Do you dislike the shape of your nose but don’t want to undergo invasive surgical procedures like rhinoplasty?
There are two non-surgical methods for improving the appearance of your nose: a nasal thread lifts and nose fillers. Although each treatment can significantly improve the appearance of the nose,
In general, nose threads are more effective than fillers at creating a sharper tip, a definite lift, and a sharper, more defined contour. They’re especially popular with our Asian customers.
One of the key benefits of a nose thread lift over a rhinoplasty is that it is a non-surgical procedure that is minimally invasive. This means that there will be no cutting or surgery.
Non-surgical nose thread lifts use dissolvable threads comprised of PDO (polydioxanone), a complex sugar that has long been used in biomedical and pharmaceutical applications due to its exceptionally safe profile.
This material is non-allergic and non-antigenic, as well as entirely biodegradable, which means that the PDO material is completely absorbed by the body over time.
How does the procedure work?
The nose thread lift, sometimes known as a “lunchtime nose job,” is a therapy that may be finished in under an hour. Patients can continue their everyday activities right away due to the short downtime.
You will lie down with your face turned upwards. You may be given a topical anaesthetic to put on your nose and surrounding area so that you don’t feel any pain or discomfort.
Then, vertically into the nose tip, fine threads will be placed horizontally along the nasal bridge for height and the septum to give projection to the nose. The threads serve as a scaffolding framework that helps contour and mold the nose to the desired shape, as well as a collagen stimulator that encourages the synthesis of new collagen to give the nose a long-lasting lift.
Individuals, their current nose shape, and the desired outcome all influence the number of threads necessary. The threads serve as a scaffold for the nose, so the results are immediately obvious.
Getting ready for the operation
During the initial appointment, here are the directions for what to do before a non-surgical nose job. However, there are certain general rules to follow before performing any filler procedures:
In the week leading up to the surgery, avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), vitamin E supplements, and any other blood-thinning supplements.
Vitamin K helps to lessen the chance of bruising, so try to consume a lot of green, leafy vegetables in the weeks leading up to your treatment to enhance your vitamin K levels.
Before your appointment, drink plenty of water and eat a healthy lunch.
The Most Important Advantages of a Nose Thread Lift Treatment
The following are some of the most important advantages of the nose thread lift procedure:
The results aren’t permanent, so if you don’t like how it appears, it’ll only take 6-8 months for the threads to disintegrate naturally in your body.
- Convenience: a nose thread lift costs a lot less than a regular rhinoplasty.
- Very effective and safe
- Results that are immediately visible
- There will be no downtime.
- Patients can nearly immediately return to work and routine activities.
- There is no need for anaesthesia.
The Effects of a Nose Thread Lift
The effects of a nose thread lift can be evident right away, and they will improve over time as your body regenerates more collagen over the next 3-6 months, up to a year.
The effects usually endure for about 1-2 years. The result will be much longer lasting if the therapy is repeated 9 months following the original treatment. Finally, collagen stimulation in the nose can result in some long-term lifting.
Contraindications and Side Effects
You may experience some stinging during the anaesthetic injections, but the threads should not cause any pain later. You will feel some tightness in the treatment sites right after the threads are inserted, and you may have some discomfort for a few days. Analgesics are available over the counter and can be taken as needed for post-operative pain relief.
The nose thread lift is a highly safe surgery with no long-term complications. Mild bruising, swelling, and tenderness are to be expected following the surgery, but they should subside within a few days to weeks.
