Why is Hiko Nose Thread Lift so popular in Singapore?
A defined and sharp nose is commonly regarded as the ideal nose shape in the world. However, for most Asians, especially of Chinese descent, a low or flat nose ridge and upturned nose tip are common features of our nose. With Hiko Nose Thread Lift, you can achieve your desired structure and shape for your dream natural-looking nose profile.
Hiko Nose Thread Lift, an effective non-surgical option
Unlike traditional ways of restructuring nose profiles through operations, Hiko Nose Lift Treatment is a non-invasive procedure. Traditionally, surgical rhinoplasty (nose job) has to be done to improve the above features of the nose. Now, doctors are equipped with newer techniques and products to improve the nasal definition in a non-surgical way.
How does Hiko Nose Threadlift Work work?
PDO and PLLA are materials that are used in surgical sutures and threads for wound closure. This material dissolves over time and is broken down and released by the body. With innovative bioengineering technology, PDO and PLLA have been refashioned into threads of various lengths and characteristics to achieve facial rejuvenation.
When the treads are inserted, they add volume and height to deficient areas along the nose bridge. Threads can also be placed to support the nasal columella to give an added projection for the nasal tip. They work in a dual capacity of lifting and long-term regenerating. The effect of lifting occurs immediately due to the elevation of the overlying tissues and added support for the underlying structures.
At The Ogee Clinic, we believe in providing the most appropriate treatment that works just for you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Patients who have the following medical history may not be able to undergo the Nose lift:
- previous surgical nose jobs (rhinoplasty)
- current skin infection at the area
- patients on chemotherapeutic or other anti-cancer treatments
- patients on long standing blood thinning medications or anticoagulants
The above is a non-exhaustive list. During your consultation with Dr. Heng, an in-depth discussion will be conducted and an individualised treatment plan will be done for you.
An anesthetic cream is applied before the procedure and an anesthetic injection will be given as part of the preparation process. This reduces the pain sensation at the area and patients will feel minimal to no pain during the whole procedure.
The procedure is convenient and quick, and can take 15-20 minutes to be performed.
After the procedure, there may be some localized swelling and redness which will wear off within 1-2 hours. People can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure. Coupled with the fast procedure time, this is the reason why we call it the “Lunchtime Nose Lift”. It has become a highly popular procedure in the clinic. Occasional injection marks may remain prominent for 2-3 days, and you may conceal them with makeup or foundation.
PDO threads are not permanent, but long-lasting. They are absorbable over 6-12 months and eventually broken down and released by the body. While it is in place, PDO threads stimulates collagen synthesis under the skin, enhancing connective tissue support and improving the profile of the nose. The effect could last up to a year in most patients.
Nose filler for non-surgical nasal augmentation has become the norm these days. However, with the advent of nose thread lifts, these procedures have become increasingly popular and doctors have a wider variety of tools at their disposal. We appreciate that every individual’s nose is different in terms of shape, height and soft tissue characteristics. While most patients can benefit from thread lifts, some patients see more benefit from fillers. Frequently, Dr Heng may discuss with the patient and use a combination of filler and thread for a more beautiful, sculpted result.
Potential side effects are usually related to procedural technique:
- Skin infection and cellulitis
- Sub-optimal nasal height even after threads are done
- Nasal deviation may occur
- Undercutting of thread with surrounding skin
- Unintended erosion of thread out from the skin
- A weird unnatural looking nose that is out of proportion with the face
Hence, it is important that the procedure is performed by a qualified, experienced practitioner. The skill and expertise of the doctor is a huge determining factor in the aesthetic outcome of the Nose lift. In addition, the treatment should also be carried out in a safe and professional clinic environment, where hygiene measures are taken seriously, and quality thread products are used.
