PDO NOSE THREADS... ARE THEY FOR YOU?

The Nose Thread Lift: Everything About the "Lunchtime Nose Job"

A PDO nose thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at reshaping and lifting the nose.


It involves inserting medical grade Polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the nose area in order to lift, contour, and refine the shape of the nose.


The PDO threads are inserted through tiny incisions made on either side of the nose and pulled towards each other in a fan-like fashion.


This lifts and tightens the skin and underlying structures, achieving an improved contour with minimal downtime or discomfort.


A PDO nose thread lift is not a direct substitute for traditional rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery.


It is an effective treatment for those looking to achieve subtle changes in the shape and contour of their nose and can change the whole facial appearance, but it has its limitations depending upon the desired lifting effect.


A PDO nose thread lift or non surgical nose job is considered to be a "lunchtime nose job" treatment due to its quick and minimally invasive nature as it is typically less than an hour.


How does the nose thread lift procedure work?

A PDO nose thread lift treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of medical grade Polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift, contour, and refine the shape of the nose.


During the treatment, microscopic incisions are made on either side of the nose and PDO threads are inserted into the dermis layer of skin with a cannula.


These threads are then carefully pulled towards each other in order to lift and tighten the skin and underlying structures, giving an improved contour with minimal downtime or discomfort.


The process helps to stimulate collagen production for increased firmness and elasticity, as well as providing aesthetic enhancement.


There is no need for general anaesthesia during this procedure since it is considered very safe and virtually painless. Depending on individual needs and expectations results may vary; however, improvements can be expected from a single session.


Aftercare instructions must be followed for optimal results from a PDO nose thread lift. It's important to note that it may take up to several months to see the full effects of this type of treatment as collagen formation takes time.

What are the benefits of a nose thread lift?

A PDO nose thread lift is a fast and effective way to lift, contour and refine the shape of the nose without resorting to surgery.


It can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles that can occur with age or sun damage.

The procedure involves inserting tiny threads made from Polydioxanone (PDO) into the dermal layer of the skin.


The threads are then pulled towards each other to achieve a lifting effect.


The treatment is considered safe and virtually painless with minimal downtime or discomfort, making it a great option for those who don't want to go through extensive cosmetic surgery.


Results from PDO thread lifts typically last between nine months to one year, depending on an individual's age, lifestyle and other factors.


During that time patients may need occasional touch-ups for further improvements or maintenance.


In addition to providing aesthetic enhancement, this type of non-surgical procedure also helps promote collagen production which leads to improved tone, elasticity, and overall firmness in the area treated.


It's important to consult a doctor beforehand to ensure you are eligible for this type of procedure, as it is not suitable for everyone depending upon your desired outcome.


Who is a Good Candidate for a PDO Nose Thread lift treatment?

A PDO nose thread lift treatment is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure designed to lift, contour and refine the shape of the nose and nasal tip.


The procedure uses medical grade Polydioxanone (PDO) threads inserted into the dermis layer of skin with a cannula.


It is relatively safe, with minimal downtime or discomfort.


Good candidates for this type of procedure are those who want to improve their facial contours without surgery and are looking for subtle enhancements in aesthetics like increased definition and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.


Great results can be achieved for those with a drooping nose tip, downward pointing nose tip, crooked nose, achieving a more defined nose, nose slimming, nose reshaping, and to also improve the general nose shape.


People with realistic expectations and a good understanding of the procedure can benefit from excellent results.


Patients must also be in relatively good health, as well as free from any medical conditions that may cause complications such as diabetes, bleeding disorders and skin infections.


A consultation prior to the treatment is necessary to determine if you are eligible for this type of treatment or not.


This will ensure that you get the best possible results from your PDO nose thread lift procedure.


What is Involved in a PDO Nose Threadlift from Start to Finish?

A PDO nose threadlift is a non-surgical procedure used to improve the shape, contour and definition of the nose tip.


It involves inserting a fine needle with threads into the skin at various depths to lift, reposition and contour the skin.


Following the administration of these threads, the tip of the nose experiences an instant lift with its bridge undergoing a significant refinement and straightening.


The threads are made of absorbable material and stimulate collagen production to help create a more defined shape, reduce sagging or drooping skin, and enhance facial symmetry.


A great alternative to a surgical rhinoplasty.


The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to complete and can be performed under local anaesthetic.


Before undergoing treatment, your doctor may need to take photographs of your face for comparison purposes and will discuss any potential risks or side effects associated with the procedure.


Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, Dr Chike will begin inserting needles around the target area with particular attention being paid to symmetry.


Once all of the openings have been made, they will insert threads into each one using appropriate forceps before securing them in place by tying knots at either end.


Following this, areas that require additional definition can be treated using cannula needles which are inserted around areas to create more volume or definition where required such as a nose tip lift.


Finally, any excess threads or materials will be removed and Dr Chike may apply an ointment or cold compress over the area for added comfort and protection following the procedure.


What Results Can a PDO Nose Thread lift Achieve?

A PDO nose thread lift or a non surgical rhinoplasty, is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that can help enhance the appearance and raise the tip of the nose with minimal downtime and discomfort.


It provides both aesthetic enhancement and skin rejuvenation, with results that typically last between six months to one year.


Some of the most common results achieved from this type of treatment include:

  • Improved facial contours - resulting in improved definition around the bridge, tip and sides of the nose - nose tip lift or correction of a droopy nose tip

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles - reducing signs of aging on the face

  • Stimulated collagen production - leading to increased firmness, elasticity and overall toned look of the skin

  • Subtle lifting and refining - providing an overall more youthful looking nose without major surgery.

The exact results that you can expect from a PDO nose thread lift will depend on several factors including your individual anatomy, lifestyle choices and expectations for the outcome.


Frequently Asked Questions...


What are the Goals and Limitations of a PDO Nose Thread lift?

The goal of a PDO nose thread lift is to improve nose shape, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and promote collagen production for increased firmness and elasticity in the treated area. This type of non-surgical procedure provides subtle lifting and refining with minimal downtime or discomfort. However, it is important to note that this type of procedure comes with certain limitations. It is not suitable as a replacement for more extensive plastic surgery if you desire a more permanent lifting or dramatic changes in the nose’s shape or size – these changes are best achieved through surgery. Additionally, patients must be healthy and free from any medical conditions that may cause problems during or after the procedure.
