Which Non-Surgical Nose Job Is Suitable For You? Nose Fillers, Thread Lifts? 

It’s important to understand that there are several treatment options available in the market which may achieve similar results from the ones listed here like nose fillers and thread lifts. This article is also not meant to suggest that the treatments we offer are the only sole or best options.

A contoured nose, a sharper nose tip, or a higher nose bridge—all these are possible with non-surgical solutions such as nose fillers or surgical options like getting a nose job.

But a nose implant surgery or rhinoplasty is notoriously risky, painful, and cannot be reversed.

Fortunately, you don’t have to go under the knife to achieve a distinct impression and more 3D facial features.

At Cienna Aesthetics Medical Clinic, we offer nose thread lifts and nose filler procedures, two of the safest, minimally invasive options to get you the perfect nose you’ve always wanted.

With these procedures suited for Asian noses, they are understandably popular.

Make no mistake; however, you can’t just decide on a whim. All noses are different, and so is yours.

Consulting with your doctor is the best and simplest way to know which between a nose filler or a nose thread lift is right for you.

However, knowing everything you can about the procedure is also helpful.

To help you, here’s a lowdown on what you need to know before deciding.

What are nose thread lifts?

As the name suggests, a nose thread lift procedure is a procedure that lifts the nose bridge by inserting polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the nose.

Advantages of nose threads over nose fillers:


Unlike nose fillers, nose threads carry no risk of vascular complications.

No migrating

Nose threads can sculpt the nose bridge higher without the risk of spreading out over time or broadening.


Quick procedure with minimal downtime post-treatment

Minimal touch-ups

Nose thread lifts can last up to 2 years.

How a nose thread lift procedure works:

Your doctor will already have carefully selected and customized the shapes, sizes, and the number of threads for your nose according to your nose structures and specific needs.

Depending on the area you want lifting—ideally the nose bridge or tip—these nose threads will be carefully inserted into the supporting structure of the nose.

The result is a smaller and sharper nose with a more contoured base.

What are nose fillers?

Nose fillers are dermal fillers injected into the bridge or tip of the nose to add volume and increase height and projection.

This procedure is best for reshaping their nose and correcting its pre-existing deformities.

Common nose filler materials

Hyaluronic acid (or dermal fillers)

These can last from 9 to 36 months.

Calcium hydroxyapatite

These are collagen biostimulators that can last up to 2 years.


This is a semi-permanent dermal filler that can last up to 5 years.

Advantages of nose fillers over nose threads:

Instant results

When done right, the results of nose fillers are obvious and immediate.

Quick turnaround

Negative side effects, such as bruising and swelling, clear up quickly within 24 hours

Added benefits

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers give skin moisture, volume, and elasticity aside from sculpting the nose.

Low risk

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body which means a very low possibility of adverse immune reactions.

How a nose filler procedure works:

Before & After

Ten to fifteen minutes into your procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area of concern.

Once the areas of your nose are fully numb, the fillers will then be injected into the areas that require alteration in 15-20 minutes.

The result is a higher nose bridge and nose tip sculpted the way you want it.

Which is better—nose thread lifts or nose fillers?

The more accurate question is, which is better for you?

The most suitable nose procedure for you is the one that addresses your concerns and desires.

If you want a higher nose bridge

Both a nose thread lift and a nose filler can result in a higher nose bridge.

However, more threads have to be used to achieve a more defined result. Nose fillers can easily fill up the area for a more noticeable difference.

If you want a sharper and smaller nose

Nose threads anchor precise points that lift the nose better than nose fillers. In fact, nose fillers can cause the nose to get bulbous.

If you want a contoured nose

Nose thread lifts are the better option for contouring as they are better at lifting the nose bridge to the tip.

Can I combine nose thread lifts and nose fillers?

Yes! A combination of both nose fillers and threads is doable and is the better option in some cases.

For instance, for a flat nose bridge with a hump, a nose thread lift can improve the nose contour and highlight the tip, while a nose filler can even out the dorsal hump.

Remember, however, that injecting fillers and threads in a way that looks natural is an advanced skill that takes years to perfect.

Too many fillers can cause the nose bridge or tip to broaden, while not getting the placement right for the nose threads can result in an uneven or slanted nose.

Be sure to work with licensed doctors to avoid these.
