Nose augmentation using fillers is a quick procedure that lasts about 9 months to 1 year. The concern with fillers is that it tends to migrate or spread over time, which could lead to a broader looking nose. Fillers are also known to occasionally cause lumpiness which is undesirable.
Nose augmentation using Hiko Thread Lifts, on the other hand, lasts up to 2 years, making it longer-lasting as compared to fillers. Unlike fillers, thread lifts do not migrate or spread over time. As the nose threads dissolve, it has the added advantage of stimulating collagen production so that the nose still looks naturally defined.
Rhinoplasty surgery is an alternative way of shaping the nose. While the results of a rhinoplasty are very long-lasting, it is a surgical and invasive procedure that requires full sedation. It typically involves a long recovery time of 3 months to 1 year. In addition, the high cost of a rhinoplasty makes it quite unattractive.
HIKO Nose Thread Lift, however, is non-surgical and minimally invasive. The procedure takes just 20 minutes and requires only topical numbing cream. There is virtually no downtime. On rare occasions where there is slight redness, it will go away in 1 day.
With an experienced doctor such as Dr Lee Mun Heng, the Hiko Nose Thread Lift is an excellent way to contour the nose. The insertion of threads itself is safe and pain-free. In the following, we detail the factors and quality of nose thread required for a successful nose thread lift procedure.
