Nose thread lift

Thread lifting of the nose is non-invasive insertion of multiple dissolvable threads under the skin of the top (dorsum) of the nose to smooth the bridge, and if need be, elevate the tip of the drooping nose. Unlike surgery, the results are natural looking and gentle, and the recovery period is almost nothing. There’s no weeklong, painful recovery. No noticeable scars. No unsightly bridges, bandages, or wraps. Just noticeable results.

What are the key benefits of a nose thread lift?

  • A nose thread lift is convenient (get it done on your lunch break) and much less expensive than a surgical rhinoplasty
  • Very safe and very effective
  • Immediate, visible results
  • No downtime
  • Not painful once the tip is numbed
  • You can resume work and normal lifestyle activities almost immediately

  • It can produce a result similar to surgically placed nasal implants

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can threads be placed in the nose?

Under the skin and usually in the midline of the bridge to smooth the dorsum (top part of the nose) and also the columella (the tissue between the tip of the nose and the upper lip) to support to lift the tip (apex) of the and nose tip, which can droop, thanks to aging and gravity.

What are the threads made of?

PDO polydioxanone, a safe and established suture material that has been used by cardiac and plastic surgeons alike for more than two decades.

Who can benefit from a nose thread lift?

Anyone with irregularities or unevenness of the dorsum, which is the top of the nose, or anyone hoping to slightly lift the tip of the nose.

Those who have breathing problems as a result of internal nasal issues, such as a deviated septum, polyps or sinus problems. Those who have a wide nose or severely exaggerated nasal hump may require surgical intervention. The cosmetic results are natural and gentle

How long does a nose thread lift take?

Usually between 15-45 minutes, which is why some of our patients have dubbed this the lunchtime nose job.

How soon can results be noticed?

Usually immediately, but it may take a few weeks to start forming new supportive collagen tissue, at which time the result is further enhanced.

How many sessions are required?

Usually one one is required for results, but some patients opt for more threads to further enhance the result. To maintain lasting results, the procedure will most likely need to be done every 12-16 months.

Is it painful afterwards?
