The River Nose Thread Lift

An alternative to dermal fillers and invasive nose reshaping procedures, this non-surgical treatment involves threads inserted vertically into the nose tip which act as a scaffolding structure to help contour and shape the nose. Results are incredible, instantly making the nose appear smaller, disguise bumps, straighten and sharpen the nose!


A non-surgical Nose Thread Lift treatment places absorbable collagen-stimulating Aptos PCL threads into the nose to adapt the shape, making it straighter or lifting the tip. The threads stay firmly in place, like scaffolding, until they naturally dissolve after 6 months and due to their collagen and hyaluronic acid stimulating nature results get better and better over time.

A nose thread lift can achieve a higher and straighter nasal bridge because of their structure-defining abilities, helping to build up the profile of your nose in the way fillers cannot quite achieve. Often known as a ‘lunchtime nose job’, a Nose Thread Lift is a treatment that can be completed in under an hour and because of the minimal downtime patients can resume their daily activities thereafter.

The talented team at River Aesthetics are pioneers of using the nose thread lift, working to create your desired nose shape and harmonising it beautifully with the natural contours of your face. Book your complimentary consultation with us today.


What happens during the River Thread Nose Lift?

The nose is numbed with numbing cream for 30 minutes and then local anaesthesia is injected at the entry point and along the nose bridge and tip. Using a small needle, we create an entry point for thread insertion. The threads are inserted into the nose using a blunt cannula. Once the cannula is removed the threads remain in the nose, creating lift and correction.

Which treatment is better for me – nose fillers or nose thread lift?

As with all cosmetic procedures, the perfect option depends on what will work for your individual needs. However, there are some notable advantages that make threads worth considering over dermal fillers. A nose thread lift can achieve a higher and straighter nasal bridge because of their structure-defining abilities, and they can build up the profile of your nose in the way fillers cannot quite achieve.

What is the downtime after the procedure?

With any thread lift procedure there is always a risk of bruising and swelling, however this will settle down very quickly.

When will I see the results?

You will see an immediate result after the treatment. For nose tip lifting we tend to over-correct initially as the tip will naturally drop after a few days to its new elevated position.

How long will the results last?

On average the results will last between 18-24 months

What threads are used?

Our non-surgical Nose Thread Lift uses absorbable collagen-stimulating Aptos PCL threads. They are 100% bio-compatible with the human body.
