HIKO Nose threads, fillers, or both?

Nose augmentation (nose threads / nose fillers) has been commonly requested for by many patients in our clinic, especially as aesthetic procedures become more widely accepted.

Nose thread lift in Singapore, especially HIKO nose threads in particular, are gaining popularity and patients these day tend to ask if nose fillers or nose threads are better or a more cost-effective option to the other.

Every individual’s nose is different, and some noses are more suitable for thread lifts, while some will benefit more from fillers.

types of noses we commonly see - ideal, low nose bridge, bulbuous, bumpy nose bridge

So how do we identify which noses are more suitable for which procedure? Here are some common nose augmentation situations:

I want a higher nose bridgeI want a higher nose bridge:

For someone with a lower/flat nose bridge, fillers are still a better option as fillers can give a flat nose bridge its desired volume and shape.

For a noticeable increase in nose bridge height/volume, more threads will be required for satisfactory results and that will not be cost-effective. Nose fillers might be a better option for these patients. Nose threads will be better suited for an individual who already has some height to their bridge, but just want more definition.

I want a more contoured nose

I want a contoured nose:

Nose threads are very effective when it comes to creating a sharper and more defined nose.

Just like how many people contour their noses with makeup, getting threads for the nose can help you achieve this effect by giving it a lift from the nose bridge down till the tip.

I want a sharper/smaller nose tip:

 I want a sharper/smaller/more contoured nose

Nose threads are more effective at creating a sharper nose tip than fillers. All nose threads now are designed with small tiny anchoring points (also known as cogs, or barbs) along the threads. These anchoring points lift the nose up when it is inserted, thus makes the nose tip sharper and smaller.

Too much fillers can actually cause the nose tip to look bigger. Certain fillers can also shift or spread over time, causing the nose to look broader instead! With threads, the smaller increase in volume and the scaffolding / tenting effect from the threads will result in a sharper and more lifted tip compared to fillers.

I want a straighter nose

I want a straighter nose:

Some people have bumps or ‘dents’ on their noses. This uneven-ness on the nose can be corrected with either fillers or threads.

The final choice of using either fillers or nose threads for bumps and dorsal humps will depend on the area of the bump/depression, individual condition and desired effect. At Mizu, we understand that everyone is unique and it’s never a one-fits-all solution – we will discuss all possible options with you, and advise you on the possible outcomes before proceeding.

Can I use a combination of both fillers and threads?

A combination of fillers and nose threads can used for more dramatic effect, depending on individual existing condition(s). Fillers can give you the desired height for the bridge first, and threads will then be used to increase the contouring of the nose and lifting the tip. Results with a combination of fillers and threads usually last much longer (12-24 months) and can be repeated when it goes off.

How long can it last?

Nose threads are made of PDO / PLLA are material used for surgical sutures, and will be absorbed by the body. Nose threads typically last 1 – 2 years, depending on type of material used, lifestyle and how your body reacts to it.

There are hyaluronic acid-based fillers which will last around 9 – 12 months depending on lifestyle and body absorption rate, and non-HA fillers which can last longer, between 18 – 24 months.

What if I don’t like my previous nose threads/fillers and want to get it fixed?

Nose threads and hyaluronic-based fillers are not permanent. The threads will be absorbed by the body, within 9 – 12 months, and HA-based fillers will also be absorbed by the body within 9 – 12 months, and can also be dissolved.

It is important to discuss with your doctor about the desired outcome before choosing either one – both the doctor’s skills and types of threads/fillers are very important when it comes to achieving a certain outcome, so be sure to go for a consult, and make an informed decision about it.

How many nose threads will I need?

There are many factors to consider – the desired effect, initial nose shape, whether it’s a combination of fillers and threads or just threads alone. At Mizu, we use between 6 – 10 threads per procedure, depending on type of threads used.

Is it safe?

Nose threads will not cause blindness. Blindness after fillers is a very rare complication, but nose threads do not block blood vessels or arteries to the eye, so there is no such worry.

Are nose threads expensive?

Nose threads cost just a little more than fillers – please contact us for price enquiries!


Make an appointment for a consult with Dr. YZ Tan or email us should you have any further enquiries about nose thread lifts, but we’ll tell you, it’s easier to decide after you get a consult with an experienced professional! ; )
