You don’t need to go under the knife to get the perfect nose. The Clifford Clinic offers the nose threadlift, which can enhance your nose shape and height and give you a more defined shape that flatters the rest of your features. It is one of the most popular procedures in Korea and Japan, where it is called the “lunchtime nose lift” because of its minimal downtime. It is also called the HIKO nose lift
What can a nose threadlift do?
This procedure can give you a higher and more defined nose bridge, lift the tip of the nose to make it look dainty and small, and straighten your nose. Your Clifford Clinic doctor will examine your particular facial and bone structure to recommend the appropriate changes so that you’re happy with the shape and don’t experience any problems.
How do nose threadlifts work?
This breakthrough procedure uses special PDO (polydixanone) threads, which your doctor places at appropriate points to lift your nose into your desired shape. Your body will absorb these threads, and produce new tissue fibroblasts and collagen as part of the natural healing process. This leads to tighter skin, which further enhances your nose’s contour.
Nose threadlifts vs nose fillers
Nose fillers are typically used to enhance a flat nose bridge or correct a dorsal hump. However, this procedure can’t make your nose appear thinner or smaller. The range of nose shapes that you can achieve with a nose threadlift is far wider – giving your aesthetic doctor more freedom to create the nose that will best complement and balance the rest of your shape.
Fillers also need to be repeated after several months. Nose threadlifts’ results last for as long as 2 years. The procedure can be repeated and can even give better, more finetuned results.
Nose threadlifts vs rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty permanently changes your nose’s shape, but like all aesthetic procedures, it has a longer healing time. You will experience several days of swelling and bruising, and may need to take extra precautions to protect your newly-enhanced nose. Like all surgeries, it is more expensive and has more risks than non-invasive treatments.
In contrast, many patients are able to retain to their regular routine just days after having a nose threadlift.
