Get a Sharper, Defined Nose with A Non-Surgical Nose Thread Lift
What is Korean PDO Nose Thread Lift?
Korean PDO Nose Thread Lift is a non-surgical treatment to augment the nose so that patients will have a higher nose bridge and a more defined nose.
Commonly known as the ‘lunchtime nose job’, the treatment can be completed in about 45 minutes and patients can resume their daily activities thereafter.
PDO Nose Thread Lift is achieved by placing fine threads along the nasal bridge for the height and the septum to enhance the projection of the nose. This is done without any surgery but immediate lifting of the bridge and the tip can be seen after the treatment.
How is PDO Nose Thread Lift Done?
During the initial consult with the doctor, he will discuss and agree with the patient on the nose is to be augmented for the best result. Typically, local anaesthesia will be administered before the treatment so that the patient will be comfortable during the procedure.
Inserting thin, dissolvable PDO threads just above the nasal bridge and in the septum, the procedure immediately lifts and provides a support structure for the tissue. In addition, the threads kick start the cellular rejuvenation process by stimulating them to produce new collagen. This means that after the threads dissolve after 9 months, your nose will still be able to retain its height and projection for another 12 months.
Are Korean PDO Nose Thread Lifts Safe?
PDO Nose Thread Lift uses threads made of polydioxanone that are 100% bio-compatible and bio-absorbable. PDO threads will be broken down in 6-8 months after the treatment. PDO is a key material used by surgeons for their surgical procedures.
However, these barbed PDO threads are specially designed for the purpose of skin lifting. As a result, the tissue around the treated area will be stimulated to produce more collagen to maintain the lift and projection of the nose even after the threads have dissolved.
What Are The Improvements That Can Be Seen After PDO Nose Thread Lift?
Improvements that can be seen after PDO Nose Thread Lift treatment are:
- Higher nose bridge
- Better projection of the nasolabial angle
- Sharper nose tip
- Correction of deviated nasal bridge
The ideal nasolabial angle is between 85 to 105 degrees. During the treatment, the doctor will try to achieve the projection and height by inserting PDO threads of different lengths to lift the nose.
How Long Can The Korean PDO Nose Thread Lift Treatment Last?
After the initial PDO Nose Thread Lift treatment, it can last for about 1-2 years.
If it is repeated about 9-12 months after the initial treatment, the result will be longer-lasting. With the stimulation of new collagen and connective tissue, you can expect some permanent lifting.
Who Is A Suitable Candidate For The Treatment?
PDO Nose Thread Lift offers an effective solution for people who wish to augment their nose, but do not wish to undergo surgery. It gives more definition and height compared to fillers, but is less invasive than traditional rhinoplasty.
The procedure only takes less than an hour, offering convenience, minimal downtime, and minimal discomfort.
Are There Any Risks Or Complications?
Some swelling and minor bruising can be expected but these issues should resolve in a couple of days. Full recovery can be expected in 3 days.
PDO Nose Thread Lift has very little risks and complications as compared to a surgical nose job. Risks involving a surgical nose job include permanent scarring, nerve damage, under- or over-correction, and infection.
