For those who do not wish to undergo rhinoplasty surgery, who do not have a high downtime and do not want swelling that can persist for up to a month, there are fantastic alternatives in aesthetic medicine. Whenever possible, previously modifying the shape of the nose with cosmetic medicine is a great solution to avoid the high risk that exists with surgery of having a new permanent nose that one does not like, or that does not adapt to his or her face.
While it is true that in some cases the best solution is surgery, there are many people who want to change their nose, they can do so with cosmetic medicine and one of the best treatments to achieve their goal is the threadslift.
The change of the nasal form withthreadslift is a procedure in which we insert short threads of 3.8-5 cm or 5-7 cm and place them on the nasal bridge or column, to give the shape, height and the exact definition of the nose we want to achieve.
It is like a surgical nose surgery, except that the “implants” are reabsorbable over a period of 1 to 2 years.
How is a rhinoplasty performed with threadslift?
- First, the marking of the areas where we are going to place the threads is done
- We apply 3 point local anesthesia on the nose
- We insert the tension threads so that we can work the way very flexibly
- We remove the cannulas, leaving the threads embedded inside
- Possible side effects of rhinoplasty with threadslift
What side effects can this treatment have?
The possible side effects are very low and lack significant risks to the patient’s health:
- Swelling and slight discomfort in the first days
- Infection of the thread entry points
- Inclined nasal bridge (due to poor location of the threads, poor aesthetic judgment, or poor hand-eye coordination)
The insertion of threads, in the correct hands, is safe and can produce a result similar to that of surgery.
