In Asia, people generally prefer slender, well defined noses. Often, they are afraid of the pain of going for an invasive treatment like a rhinoplasty. Thanks to medical advancements, patients can now opt for a minimally invasive and non-surgical alternative called a threadlift.
Threadlifts use Polydioxanone (PDO) threads that are fully reabsorbable by the body in order to enhance, redefine and shape parts of the face. They are commonly used on the cheeks and nose bridge in order to bring out a more aesthetic look.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF GETTING A THREADLIFT LIKE?
STEP 1 - CONSULTATION
The doctor will assess your condition.
STEP 1 - PREPARATION
Local anesthesia is used to numb the target areas. The PDO threads are then carefully injected into the nose by using blunt cannulas.
20 Minutes Procedure
The entire process takes only around 20 minutes.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE EFFECTS? HOW LONG DO THREADLIFT LASTS?
The effects of the threads are immediate. You should see an immediate lift and recontouring of the target area. These results should last anywhere between 1 to 2 years after the procedure is completed. You are advised to consult back with your doctor in order to ensure that results are properly maintained.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS? WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME LIKE?
Downtime for threadlifts are very minimal. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. Immediately after the procedure, there might be some slight bruising, pain and swelling around the target areas, but these are merely temporary and will heal quickly.
