Nose Thread Lift - Adelaide
Traditionally, the only options for nose augmentation have been non-surgical dermal fillers or a surgical rhinoplasty.
There is now a new non surgical treatment to improve the profile of the nose, known as nose threadlift. Nose threadlift can achieve the following results;
- A straighter nose bridge
- A sharper nose tip
- A sharper and more defined nose bridge
- A higher nose bridge
The nose thread lift procedure takes as little as thirty minutes to complete. Absorbable PDO threads are carefully placed in the nose to create lifting and improved definition of the nose bridge and nose tip. The PDO threads used last longer than dermal fillers, but are also not permanent.
The risks of having a nose thread are considerably less than both dermal fillers and surgical options.
The nose thread lift can be performed every year to maintain results.(Results may vary for every individual)
1. Treatment can be completed in 30 minutes
2. No downtime required
3. Fewer complications than dermal fillers and surgical rhinoplasty
4. Dermal fillers can migrate. Nose Thread Lift is more stable
5. Lasts longer than dermal fillers
6. Improved lifting of the nose bridge and nose tip compared to dermal fillers.
7. Not permanent, so if you don’t like the results it will return to normal after the threads are absorbed
How it works
What Does The Treatment Involve?
First, your face and nose will be cleaned using Chlorhexidine antiseptic solution. A local anaesthetic will then be administered to your nose. The anaesthetic will take about thirty minutes to work. Once your nose is numb, the PDO threads will be inserted through the nasal tip and along the nasal bridge under the skin. Approximated 4 to 8 threads may be used along the nasal bridge to achieve the required nose height and definition. Threads may also be applied to the nasal tip if nasal tip projection is also required.
What concerns can a nose thread lift improve?
Individuals who have various nose concerns can experience beneficial, enhanced results from a nose thread lift, creating improvements such as:
- Slimming wide nostrils
- Smoothing out a nasal hump
- Projecting the nasal tip
- Lifting the nose tip
- Filling depressions in nasal walls
- Correcting a crooked nose due to surgery or trauma
- Preventing nasal obstruction by reducing nasal passage collapse
What results can I expect?
Results can be seen immediately after your nose thread lift treatment. The results will gradually improve as collagen production is stimulated. Collagen production may continue for up to one year after your nose thread lift. After six months the PDO thread will have completely dissolved. The final results may last up to one year. (Results may vary depending on each individual).
Some people may find they need a repeat treatment between six and nine months after the initial treatment. Suppose a maintenance treatment is performed roughly nine months after your initial treatment. In that case, results can last even longer, making a nose thread lift a great alternative to traditional surgical nose jobs. Always remember that a nose thread lift is not a permanent solution, if you are wanting longer lasting results, then a rhinoplasty from a Plastic Surgeon may be the best option for you. Over 90% of our clients are very happy with the results achieved.
Am I a suitable candidate for a nose thread lift?
A nose thread lift may be a suitable option for patients who are bothered by their nose appearance and seek corrections in overall shape and definition or correct other imperfections such as depressions or grooves. It is often a great alternative to traditional rhinoplasty procedures, which are highly costly, have significant downtime, and are among the most common procedures requiring corrective surgery.
Results can be permanent for up to two years, and patients should keep this in mind when choosing to undergo a nose thread lift, as the effects cannot be reversed entirely. It is a good option for individuals who have realistic expectations and have tried other solutions but still do not want to commit to traditional rhinoplasty.
Is the Procedure Painful?
Patients should not experience any pain during the treatment due to the use of local anaesthetic. Most patients can feel a pushing sensation as the threads are inserted.
What is The Downtime?
Patients should not require any downtime after the procedure. After the procedure, you will experience some local swelling and numbness. The anaesthesia will wear off after a few hours. The swelling should subside after a few days. Patients are free to wear makeup after the procedure. Some patients choose to take time off after the treatment, but you should be able to return t work the same day if that is necessary.

How Satisfied Are People That Have a Nose Thread Lift?
At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we would say that approximately 90% of clients that have nose thread lift are happy with the results. This result may be attributed to the fact that a thread lift lasts longer and has fewer complications than dermal fillers. A nose thread lift is more stable than dermal fillers, which can migrate and change the shape of the nose.
Are there any side effects or risks involved with a nose thread lift?
Risks and side effects can potentially occur with any cosmetic treatment or procedure you choose to undergo. While some side effects are common, others are rarer, and patients should be aware of them. Associated risks and side effects can include:
- Discomfort or pain
- Skin dimpling
- Visible threads in people with thin skin
- Extrusion and protrusion of the threads (If this happens, always return to see your doctor and do not touch the tread)
- Nodule formation
What are PDO mono threads?
PDO mono threads are an innovative non-surgical tightening and lifting technology that utilises ultra-fine threads made from polydioxanone (PDO), a synthetic dissolvable suture. When these threads are inserted into chosen areas, they can significantly lift skin, stimulate collagen production, trigger skin cell renewal, and support skin tissue structure.
Because of how thin the PDO threads are, our thread lift treatments are entirely comfortable and relatively painless. Over time, the threads will dissolve, but due to its stimulating technique in producing collagen, elastin and new skin cells, the effects will remain even after the threads have been naturally absorbed.
What is the difference between nose fillers and a nose thread lift?
Both treatments are similar in that they are non-invasive, non-surgical, and can provide enhanced results for individuals wishing to avoid traditional surgery. However, there are some critical differences between dermal nose fillers and a nose thread lift, such as:
- Dermal fillers have a risk of migrating or spreading, potentially changing the shape and enhancement of the nose, along with other more serious risks such as vascular occlusion.
- The results of dermal fillers can last up to one year, but with HA fillers, the effects can be dissolved and reversed at any time, unlike a nose thread lift.
- A nose thread lift has less severe risks or complications.
- Both treatments will stimulate collagen production.
If patients are unsure which treatment option may be right for them, a consultation with Dr Targett will be crucial in helping them decide on a treatment plan. She can discuss your concerns and desired outcomes, evaluate your nose area, and recommend a treatment that works for your needs.
Are there any contraindications for this treatment?
Contraindications for a nose thread lift will depend on the extent of the nose and concerns needing correction. In some cases, traditional rhinoplasty may be the only option in providing a patient’s anticipated outcomes. Contraindications can include individuals who have:
• Large noses
• Severe septum deviation
• Thick skin
• Rigid or stiff nasal tip
• Prominent bony structure
