Like sagging skin, aging can also leave prominent signs that make you look older than you truly are. However, the minutest of skin treatments can significantly change how you look, making you seem younger and more rejuvenated.
Nose jobs are one of these treatments. And if you thought a nose job was only surgical enhancing the shape of your nose, you’re in for a surprise. Nose thread lift is a treatment that can enhance the contours and shape of a nose within a short time without the need for surgery.
Nose thread lifts are quite safe with very little side-effects. Compared to other nose lifting treatments, a nose thread lift in Melbourne may be followed by swelling, infection, scarring, or soreness.
While your practitioner will be giving you a list of dos and don’ts to keep in mind, here are some common ground rules to follow before and after your treatment.
If you’re looking to have your nose reshaped without surgical treatment, book a consultation online with our clinic or give us a call at 03 9090 0099.
Nose threads are special surgical threads with cogs which are placed under the skin of the nose.
The cogs attach to the undersurface of the skin of the nose. The threads then lift the bridge and tip of the nose.
Nose threads are made of a biocompatible material commonly used in surgery (PDO). This material is safe for use in human tissue and has been used for decades for various surgical treatments.
Nose threads gradually break down over 12-18 months. After this time, the nose gradually returns to the pretreatment state.
You can insert more nose threads at any time.
We recommend religiously following the post-treatment procedures. You can also pair the nose thread lift with other skin rejuvenating treatments to further enhance your overall look.
Generally, Nose threads are not as painful as the doctor numbs the area with a local anesthetic prior to inserting the threads. There may be some discomfort after the treatment, so you can use Panadol as needed.
Usually, the results are instant but there may be some swelling for a few days after the treatment.
Best results after about 10 days.
There are few side effects of nose threads. There may be some swelling for a few days but most people can go back to work next day.
Some less common side effects include:
This can be corrected
Protrusion of threads
Every nose thread lift treatment at our Melbourne clinic is subjective.

Once you have had a consultation at our clinic, the doctor will give you a quote on the costs, keeping your requirements in mind.
The range is from about $430- $699 on average.
Nose fillers are Dermal injectable fillers that can make the nose appear straight by filling in the depressions above and below any humps.
Non permanent fillers are reversible and generally last about 12 months in the nose area. They are made of hyaluronic acid.
Cost is about $ 250 per ½ ml on average
Semipermanent fillers. These last on average 2 years and then gradually dissolve. They are not reversible.
They cost on average $300 per ½ ml
The doctor/nurse will inject the filler under the skin of the nose after the use of a numbing cream to minimize discomfort.
Results are instant. There may be swelling for a few days so best result after about 10 days.
It is common to see some swelling for a few days and occasionally some bruising. Less common side effects include:
Allergy to filler or numbing cream
Blockage of blood vessel (very area) with skin necrosis
Lumpiness and granulomas
Lack of correction
*Results may vary from patient to patient.
