In recent years, people have become more open towards aesthetic procedures, and are more willing to undergo these procedures to improve their appearances. And the good news is, recent developments in the medical aesthetic industry have allowed many of these aesthetic procedures to become non-surgical.
The nose is the most protruding part of the face, and plays a very big role in our appearance. In the past, if you wanted to change the way your nose looks, rhinoplasty (better known as a nose job) was the only way to go. Patients had to go under the knife in order to correct or reconstruct their nose. Today, the use of nose threads and filler have become very popular among people who seek to transform their nose, as they are non-surgical, painless, have no down time and produces immediate result. Best of all, the whole procedure only takes about 15 minutes!
Nose thread and nose filler are both very effective in transforming your nose into your ideal shape and size. How then should you choose between the two? To make a sound decision, you need to first understand the two procedures and how they help you achieve your perfect nose.

Also known as the “lunch break” nose job, nose fillers are becoming very popular because the whole procedure takes no more than 30 minutes, and results are immediate. It is also non-surgical which greatly reduces the risk and stigma that people associate with plastic surgeries.

Nose fillers uses the same hyaluronic acid gel that is used for lips and cheeks sculpting. The filler is injected through tiny needles into the nose bridge and followed by moulding of the nose, making it look perfectly straight.

Fillers contain some local anaesthesia in them, making the whole process painless, if not only mild pain will be experienced.
Nose fillers typically lasts for 1-1.5 years, depending on the type of fillers used. This is also one of the reasons why nose fillers are preferred over Rhinoplasty – the option to change the shape of your nose, or to reverse the process if you are unsatisfied with the results.
Nose fillers consists of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance which has already existed in our body. It is biocompatible and biodegradable. It will be digested and removed from our body naturally.
