Nose Fillers VS Nose Thread

Nose Filler VS Nose Thread

Nose filler and nose thread are both very effective replacement to Rhinoplasty. If you are looking to choose between the two, the following considerations are worth thinking through before you make a decision.

Nose Thread & Nose Fillers

Nose thread can be done within 15 minutes while nose filler takes a little longer time, usually between 20-30 minutes. Nose filler requires moulding by the doctor but nose thread doesn’t need to.

Both are equally comfortable, after a good local anaesthetic.

Nose filler is reversible in 1 day with Hyalase injection while nose thread is not.

Generally both filler and thread last about 12-18 months.

Rare but serious side effect of filler injection is vascular compromise, which is caused by filler being injected into blood vessel. This can cause skin necrosis (usually treatable with immediate reversal of the filler). Risk of vascular compromise is almost zero for nose threading.

For people with lower/flat nose bridge and seeking to have a higher nose bridge, nose filler is a better option because of the greater volume expansion. Nose thread is more effective in defining and contouring the nose.

Prominent nasal bone can cause this problem. It is best treated with filler, in order to produce a smooth nose bridge.
