PDO Nose


Model's Lower Face

The nose is one of the most important and defining features on your face and can affect the entire appearance of your face. If you are feeling unhappy or unconfident because of the shape or position of your nose but are not interested in undergoing invasive surgery like a rhinoplasty, the nose thread lift is an option.

Although a surgical rhinoplasty to change the appearance of the nose is the gold standard treatment, often however, the pain and recovery period associated with this procedure , can deter people from undergoing the procedure.

One of the main advantages of getting a MINT PDO nose thread lift over a Surgical rhinoplasty is that a nose thread lift is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure. This means there will not be any cutting or surgery involved.

Another advantage of undergoing a nose thread lift over a rhinoplasty is that it offers instant visible results with minimal downtime. This is a safe and quick way to change the appearance of your nose without having to wait several months to recover or to see the results.


Mint PDO is a safe, effective, biocompatible, and dissolvable suture composed of “polydioxanone,” a complex sugar often used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries to suture wounds and incisions.

MINT stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread.  You’ll see natural results without the need for surgery. 


Mint PDO thread lifts serve a two-fold purpose — Direct skin tightening & Collagen formation. First, the PDO thread lifts reposition the underlying tissues, giving your skin an immediate lift to reduce fine lines. Second, the PDO threads eventually get absorbed by the body and facilitate natural collagen stimulation, leading to long-term improvements in skin texture and elasticity.


The nose thread lift is a non-surgical, reversible, and non-invasive procedure The material is biodegradable, non-antigenic, and non-allergic. This means that your body will absorb them over time.Thanks to the fact there is little to no recovery time involved, most patients can continue with their normal activities after having the procedure.


With a nose thread lift, your doctor will start by applying a local anaesthetic, then follow by putting the threads complete with tiny barbs specifically placed and molded around the thread, beneath the skin, along the bridge of the nose.

The barbs anchor securely into skin that is sagging and the doctor can manipulate the thread to achieve the contoured, defined look that you desire.

The raw material will become absorbed completely by your body. 


Another benefit is that PDO causes only minimal tissue trauma and reaction. Generally, the procedure takes less than an hour and the immediate results can last up to one year. 

The results are long-lasting with no incision, minimal to no scarring and a very low risk of adverse reaction.  With almost no downtime, this procedure is an amazing alternative to surgical options.

How Long Does a Nose Thread Lift Last?

Generally speaking, the results will last anything from 1 to 2 years.

The great thing about this kind of treatment, though that once the PDO threads have been absorbed into your body, they will have helped to kickstart the natural production of collagen, which helps to enhance the results achieved by the treatment.

That process takes between 3 and 6 months but can last as long as a year.

If you want to benefit from the results of nose thread lifts for longer, you need to have top-up or maintenance appointments every 9 months.

How Much Does a Nose Thread Lift Cost?

As a rough estimate, you can expect to pay anything starting from £700 and upwards. In most cases, it is a lot less expensive compared to traditional rhinoplasty.

All of these kinds of treatments are tailored to the individual and many different factors can affect the price, such as:

  • Your nasal profile
  • The condition of your nose
  • The shape and size of your nose
  • Your health
  • Your age

The best way to find out a more precise price for nose thread lifts is to have a consultation appointment with one of the members of our highly skilled and experienced team.

Does Nose Thread Lift Make Your Nose Smaller?

The process involves the changing of the position and how your nose sits on your face, which can help to give it a more contoured look.

The nasal bridge and nose tip can be lifted and manipulated which can give the illusion of a much smaller appearance.

It is important to remember, though, that while a rhinoplasty offers permanent results, nose thread lifts only offer temporary changes that will undo over time.

Are There Any Safety Risks or Side Effects when Getting a Nose Thread Lift?

You may feel a measure of stinging while the anaesthetic is being injected. After that, you should not feel any discomfort or pain from the insertion of the PDO threads.

Once the thread lift has been complete, you will likely feel a degree of tightness around the insertion and affected areas, and you are likely to feel a little sore for a couple of days.

Although they are not common, it is worth being aware that infections can arise if the procedure is not carried out properly and that some scarring may occur around the insertion areas.

Other than that, the worst you can typically expect is:

  • mild swelling
  • bruising
  • tenderness

that could last anything from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
