The nose thread lift as the new nonsurgical Rhinoplasty

The nose is the focal point of the face, and its form has the power to “make or break” the entire facial profile. Additionally, it may have a profound effect on your self-confidence and self-esteem.

If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose but are afraid of invasive surgical procedures such as rhinoplasty, then, a nose thread lift might be the perfect solution for you!

With this non-surgical nose thread lift procedure, you can have the nose of your dreams in less than an hour and without “going under the knife.” No wonder it is also called the lunchtime nose job. It won’t be as drastic or long-lasting as a surgical rhinoplasty, but it’s still a fantastic alternative if you only want a little bit of touch-up work and modest nose rejuvenation.

Indeed, even though you may only get a few millimeters of difference, at most, even a few degrees of lift in a nose tip or the slightest change in bridge elevation can greatly improve facial harmony.

What is a nose thread lift?

A nose thread lift, also known as a thread lift nose job, is a nose reshaping procedure that involves the use of PDO threads designed to lift the tip of the nose.

Non-invasive, reversible and with more predictable results, the nose thread lift is a win-win treatment for people seeking non-surgical alternatives to rhinoplasty. Many patients would like a subtle improvement in the appearance of their noses instead of a dramatic change. Patients who are already happy with the upper third of their nose and do not desire any change to the bone structure may be suitable for a nose tip lift with threads. In addition to lifting the nose, a thread lift nose job can help correct localized deformities affecting the tip and alter the nose length without the incisions or scars of traditional rhinoplasty surgery.

How do PDO threads work?

After you have discussed with your doctor what you would like and agreed upon a design, then a local anesthetic is employed so that you will be numb enough to begin the procedure. Once you are comfortable and ready to proceed, then what comes next is the insertion of nose lift threads.

This may be accomplished in a variety of ways depending on the sort of repair or enhancement needed. For instance, to fix a crooked nose, threads might be put vertically to build a sort of scaffolding support and raise the surrounding tissues, blending or hiding the bump. Depending on the individual, their present nose shape, and the intended result, a different amount of threads may be needed. Results are instantly apparent since the threads act as the nose’s support structure.

While this sounds complicated, it is usually just a matter of 6 to 12 nose lift threads, on average, to get the job done in less time than most of us take for a lunch break.

The nasal thread lift, sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime nose job,” is a procedure that takes under an hour to accomplish. Patients can continue their regular activities right away following the procedure because there is little downtime.

It’s pain-free, with the exception of a little soreness in the typical 2-day recovery time, and the results are good for 1 up to 2 years following the procedure.

What will nose thread lift give you?

Nose slimming:  Although a PDO can’t change nose width, the procedure can be used to give your nose a slimmer appearance by simply lifting the bridge slightly.

Nose tip lift:  Perhaps the most commonly requested reason for having a nose thread lift, the nose tip lift technique is also incredibly effective. If you have a nose tip that points downwards it makes your nose look longer.

If your nose tip droops, this can age your face. What’s more, the ligaments that support your nose and sit between the cartilage can weaken and cause the tip to drop.

A PDO thread lift replaces the support and lifts it to give your nose a shorter and more youthful appearance.

Nose bridge lift:  If you would like your nose to be more defined with a bridge that sits higher, a thread lift can help.

Refining your nose ridge:  If you have a bump in your nose or a crooked nose, thread lifts can be used to reshape your nose tissue and give it a straighter appearance.

Benefits of PDO for a nose lift

Without general anesthesia: No general anesthesia is required, making it a safe and comfortable experience.

Non-surgical approach: This procedure offers a non-surgical substitute for standard rhinoplasty, eliminating the necessity for incisions, general anesthesia, and lengthy recovery.

Immediate results: After the surgery, you may anticipate seeing changes in the size, symmetry, and overall look of your nose.

Non-invasive: There’s no need to be concerned about any noticeable signs because there are no scars or stitches.

Quick and practical: The procedure can generally be finished quickly – often in less than an hour – making it a great choice for people who lead hectic lives.

Minimal downtime: Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, nose thread lift treatment typically involves minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities shortly after the procedure.

Reversible and adjustable: PDO threads’ flexibility and reversibility are among its benefits. The process may be changed or reversed if needed, giving you the freedom to get the outcomes you want.

Take away

It doesn’t matter whether you are looking to have work done on your nose bridge, or nasal tip and have considered rhinoplasty, but want to avoid surgery, then a threads lift is one of the most popular treatments that can help you to get your desired outcome.


A thread lift nose job can last anywhere from 18 months to 2 years. After the PDO threads have disintegrated, usually after 6 to 9 months, your results are maintained for many months by the collagen that your body creates as a result of the procedure.

The discomfort from thread lifts is minimal when done properly. The use of a strong local anesthetic ensures a comfortable procedure. You can expect less downtime and pain in comparison to a surgical facelift.

The procedure takes around 30-45 minutes. After a small local anesthetic, we insert the suture under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimeters. Because the suture is introduced with a tiny needle, there is no need for an incision.

People who are considering having a nose suspension procedure should be at least 18 years old. The nose will have finished growing and developing at this point.

No, they are biodegradable and designed to be absorbed over time.

Do not take any aspirin for 2 weeks prior to the procedure. Avoid Vitamin E supplements for 30 days prior to the procedure.
