Nose Thread Lifting by Dr Gerard Ee from Clifford Clinic

Nose thread lifting is a rather new procedure in Singapore as compared to fillers.
What is Nose Thread Lifting ?
Nose Threadlift is the insertion of threads called PDO (polydixanone) threads. The PDO threads have been scientifically proven to be fully absorbed by the body after some time. As they dissolve, they create new collagen and tissue fibroblasts, which will result in tighter skin around the nose, enhancing the nose’s definition and contour.
The threads act as a scaffolding that immediately helps to give contour, lift and shape the nose as desired without going under the knife.
The PDO threads can be used to highten the nose bridge and to enhance the nose tip, giving a more pointed and heightened look that cannot be achieved by dermal filler injection.

During the procedure...
The whole procedure will only take about 15mins, you can achieve the desired nose shape right after the procedure! Anaesthesia is used to numb the entry point for the threads. After that, the threads can be inserted with ease into the nose without causing any pain.


After the whole procedure..

Dr Gerard Ee was really gentle when he gave me the anaesthesia jab, subsequently I couldn't feel any pain when he insert the thread into my nose. So if you've low tolerance for pain, not to worry, just let Dr Ee know (:

Really happy with the natural outcome !!

What's the difference in outcome between Nose Thread Lifting and Nose Fillers ?
Nose Thread Lifting is able to provide you a straighter, higher and more defined nose bridge. In addition, Nose Threadlift can also lift your nose tip and make it appear smaller and sharper. Whereas for fillers, it heightens your nose bridge but it does not make your tip sharper.
Over the time, fillers might cause lump formation and boarding. Nose Threadlift would be a better  alternative to enhance your nose without the attending risks.

Is there any pain from the procedure? 
Pain level from nose threads are actually surprisingly similar or even less than fillers. Some anaesthesia is used to numb the entry point for the threads. After that, the threads can be inserted with ease into the nose, with minimal pain and hardly any discomfort. 

How long does Nose Thread Lifting last?
The effects are expected to last between 1 – 2 years. As it is semi-permanent. The threads create new collagen upon dissolving, it tightens the skin. For best results, a repeat treatment of every 6 – 12 months is recommended.

Will there be any side effects ?
There is very little side effect and almost no downtime at all. The procedure is relatively simple and non-invasive since it only involves a single injection site at the tip of the nose. However, minor swelling is expected the following week, it usually resolves within 2 weeks.
At Clifford Clinic, sterility during the procedure is of utmost importance hence risk for infection is relatively low. Make up and facial products should be avoided at treated area until at least 3 hours after the procedure to prevent infection. 
Why do I choose Nose Thread Lifting ?
I didn't like the idea of fillers as the goes away very quickly. Nose thread lifting will have a longer lasting effect. As compared to Nose Filler, broadening is far less common and there's no risk of lumps as well.

Why Dr Gerard Ee at Clifford Clinic ?

When it comes to enhancement procedure, the amount of faith you have in that doctor is very important.
Dr Gerard Ee is my most trusted aesthetic doctor so far. He would ensure that I'm satisfied with the outcome before Ieaving. He will also give suggestions on how much threads is needed for me and not follow as I say. Cause often time we might think the more threads the better, but the doctor's judgement is really important in this case because the outcome varies with the amount of threads he insert. I'm really happy with my little enhancement that makes huge difference (:
