There has been a multitude of changes in cosmetic surgery over the last two or three decades but no one is quite as significant as the developments in nose augmentation procedures. In previous times, people rely on surgical rhinoplasty, which carries a number of risks and requires a long recovery period.
But as breakthroughs in medical aesthetics technology continue to attract the attention of the global audience, people realize that there are better and improved options for the treatments and procedures that they have always wanted – including nose jobs. Non-invasive surgeries have dominated the scene and nose thread lifts at Veritas Medical Aesthetics clinic are the next big thing – and you will soon find out why.
Nose thread lift in Singapore utilizes a material called polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads have the same material as sutures and can be automatically absorbed by the body after six to nine months, so you do not have to worry about the threads poking out of your nose when you wake up one day. The threads work by lifting the tissues in the nose, which results in making the nose bridge appear taller.
A similar effect can be achieved in the nose tip. When the threads dissolve, it continues to boost the production of collagen in your skin, thus making the results more long-lasting. These mechanical and biochemical mechanisms are considered as an extraordinary feat that no other treatment or procedure is capable of.
PDO threads are ideal for noses with a low bridge as providing the structure that it lacks. Think of the threads scaffolding that supports the nose and gives it height and projection. In Asia where a huge percentage of the population is dissatisfied by the inherent characteristics of their noses (flat and has a low nose bridge), a thread lift is regarded as a less costly and safer alternative to a traditional nose job. Its cost is dependent on the number of threads and it varies from one patient to another.
The doctor will take into consideration the present shape of a person’s nose and his or her desired results before he is able to determine the exact number of threads needed to create a substantial lift. The results can last for one to two years, and even more, if the patient returns to the clinic for another treatment nine months following the first one. Over time, it is possible to achieve some sort of permanent lifting with the consistent stimulation of collagen production in the skin.
If you are planning to avail your first ever thread lift, you should find the right doctor and clinic for you. Even though the procedure is relatively safe and less risky than a good old nose job, the knowledge and skills of the doctor play a huge part in its success. As a matter of fact, being in hands of the right doctor can tell whether you will leave the clinic with a brand new, beautiful nose, or an unsatisfactory work that you will surely regret forever.
This is why you should make it a point to request the before-and-after photos of his or her past clients so you can have an idea of the doctor’s skills and aesthetic vision. You can ask them how many nose thread lift cases he or she has done, the types or brands of threads that he used, and the average number of threads that he recommends to his patients. You can also ask your doctor about how many threads he or she is planning to use on you if ever you decide to push through the treatment. For your peace of mind and security, you can ask about any complications that he or she has faced, and how those were handled, too.
Lastly, you should discuss the kind of service support that you can get post-treatment. At Veritas Medical Aesthetics clinic, we ensure that you will receive top-quality treatment before, during, and after every procedure. You can also drop by our facility anytime you have questions – our doctors and staff are always available to help you.
Are nose thread lifts painful? Will there be any adverse side effects?
In 2023, these treatments are so developed that no major pain is expected and the treatments are highly tolerable. For thread lifts, usually, a topical numbing cream is applied around 30 minutes before the treatment.
Sometimes, nose thread lifts are combined with other treatments in order to bring about the optimum results. Combination treatments in 2023 are getting more and more common and there is no longer a “one-size-fits-all” approach towards aesthetic treatments as there are many treatments on the market that can be specialized into targeting one aspect of your facial aesthetics.
For example, the doctor might prescribe a combination treatment of nose threads, dermal fillers, and lasers in order to bring about the best results. This might mean using the lasers to trigger natural collagen production while using the dermal fillers to give your nose more volume while the nose threads work to helping the nose bridge become more defined and sharper. At the end of the day, it takes an experienced and expert aesthetic doctor who understands Asian aesthetics to be able to design a treatment protocol to truly bring out the best features of you and your face.
There is no downtime associated with the procedure, which means you can immediately resume your work and routine following the treatment. You might experience some minor swelling and there may be small bruise marks where the threads were inserted but both will be gone in a few hours and over the next few days, respectively. And since the threads are considered safe, there is no chance that it will be rejected by the body. Your doctor will prescribe antibiotics to prevent infections as well as tips on how to manage the discomfort. You will be advised to refrain from consuming alcohol, but you can still wear your makeup after the treatment (except in the area where the threads were inserted).
