Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty- The Nose Thread Lift

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty- The Nose Thread Lift

Patients can now opt for a simple nose job with an office-based procedure performed under local anaesthesia in under half an hour with minimal downtime.

Non-surgical nose thread lift uses absorbable threads made of materials that are 100% bio-compatible with the human body.  After applying a local anesthetic, the doctor places threads horizontally into the nose bridge and vertically into the nose tip to form an internal scaffold splint that helps contour and shape the nose to the desired state that is immediately visible.   Dr Ho uses Aptos Excellence absorbable threads with unique multidirectional barbs.  These threads can provide stronger tissue fixation and create a more stable scaffold of support in the nose.  
This scaffold, in time, will be reinforced by the body's collagen, which takes about eight weeks to achieve adequate strength.

Why Nose Thread lift?

  • Nose thread lift has no risks of causing blindness & skin necrosis compared to nose fillers.
  • Nose thread lift doesn't migrate like nasal filler and can produce a result just like that of nasal implants ( when many threads are stacked together until its as thick as an implant)
  • Nose threads can stimulate the tissue of the nose to produce its collagen so that they be a result of the nose job will continue to improve and be sustained.
  • Nose thread lift such as Aptos can last up to 2 years.

Aptos thread rhinoplasty is a non-surgical treatment. Like all other non-surgical nose treatments, Aptos threads can not reduce the size of the nose. Still, it can make the nose appear smaller or narrower.

What Can Improve with Nose Thread Lift?

  • Hiding a nasal hump
  • Correction of a flat nasal bridge.
  • Adding projection to the nasal tip.
  • Lift the tip of your nose.
  • Filling nasal wall depressions.
  • Reduce nasal valve collapse that causes nasal obstruction
  • Correction of a crooked nose from past injury or surgery

Noses Suitable For Thread Lift

  • Small to moderate size
  • Thin skin
  • Mild to moderate deformity
  • Elastic cartilages
  • Previous surgery

Noses Not Suitable For Thread Lift

  • Large noses
  • Prominent bony structure
  • Severe deviation
  • Stiff or rigid nasal tip
  • Thick skin

Possible Complication of Nose Thread Lift

  • Discomfort and pain
  • Bruising & swelling
  • Dimpling & irregularities
  • Visible threads (in people with thin skin)
  • Infection
  • Protrusion & extrusion of threads
  • The result does not meet the patient expectation.

The number of threads required varies according to individuals. An initial consult with the doctor is necessary to determine the current shape of the nose and the desired outcome before he can decide the number of threads required.

The reversibility of the result is also appealing to patients who are uncertain about going under the knife.
