Thread Lifts with Contour Clinics Sydney

Contour Clinics are experienced in helping our clients to enhance their natural appearance through aesthetic medicine, giving them confidence as they go about their everyday lives or even for a special occasion where you want to look your best.

Knowing that we are regulated by the TDA will give you the confidence you need to know that we follow all the correct procedures and that your face is in the best hands. What’s more, our procedures are only ever performed by experienced and qualified doctors and your care given by nurses.

Nose Threading is performed at our luxury cosmetic clinics with premium range PDO Threads. These special medical grade threads are made of a complex sugar called PDO (polydioxanone) which have been safely and effectively used in biomedical applications for many years.


The cost of the Nose Thread Lift treatment at Contour Clinics is $2,000. This includes a complimentary consultation before your treatment and post-treatment reviews.

How Does This Treatment Work?

A thread lift for the nose is commonly referred to as the “lunchtime nose job” as it can be completed in under an hour with minimal downtime.

The number of threads required varies across individuals, their nose shape and desired result. A consultation with one of our expert doctors will allow them to assess the structure of your nose along with your desired results. For most patients, multiple threads are used and, in some cases, over the course of several sessions.

Prior to the insertion of the suture, topical anaesthetic will be applied to your nose and surrounding area to reduce any pain or discomfort. The doctor will then place fine threads under the soft tissue of the nose. They are placed horizontally along the nasal bridge for height, and the septum for increased projection. The threads are placed vertically into the nose tip for elevation.

Once the threads are inserted, they act as a scaffold structure so our expert cosmetic doctor can pull the threads to achieve the desired lift and shape. The threads also act as a collagen stimulator which promotes the long-lasting lifting effect to the nose. The ends of the thread are then trimmed to remove any visible trace of their placement. The sutures used in a Thread Lift last for many years and can be tightened and adjusted to sustain the refined appearance of your nose.

Results are seen immediately.

The Benefits of Nose Threading

There are many benefits of Nose Threading along with amazing final results. The treatment is safe and effective with minimal pain and downtime. It is a long-lasting and cost-effective non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty.  Results are visible immediately after treatment and last between 1 to 2 years.

The many benefits of the treatment include:

  • Disguising of dorsal humps
  • Projection of a flat nose bridge
  • Create the appearance of a longer nose bridge
  • Elevated and/or sharper nose tip
  • Can make a nose appear smaller
  • Make a wide nose bridge narrower
  • Balanced side profile
  • With increased collagen stimulation, some permanent lifting may occur

The Nose Thread Lift Sydney can be completed in 30 minutes and results last longer than dermal filler. Results are not permanent, therefore, if you do not like the results, your nose will eventually return to normal after the threads are absorbed.

What is the Difference Between Nose Thread Lift and Nose Filler?

Nose filler uses premium range dermal filler to augment the natural shape of the nose. This is achieved by adding height to the nose bridge and refining the nasal tip. It also has minimal downtime with immediate results, lasting between 9 to 18 months. This is best for those with a flat nose bridge, dorsal hump or an ill-defined nasal tip.

Nose threading uses PDO threads that are inserted into the nose to lift or sharpen the tip, improve your nose contour, slim the nose bridge and reduce the width of the nose. There is minimal downtime, and your nose may feel a bit sore for 2 to 3 days post-treatment. The results last for 1 year and in some cases, up to 2 years. This is best for those with an ill-defined nasal bridge, a droopy tip, a thicker nose or a fuller nose tip looking to achieve a smaller and more refined nose or a wide nose bridge.

In some cases, the doctor can prefer to perform a combination of both treatments to achieve the best results for the patient. With the benefits of both Nose Threading and dermal filler, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful nose with a defined structure and longer-lasting lift.

The Contour Clinics Guarantee

What Can I Expect After My Treatment? 

The Nose Thread Lift Sydney treatment is a minimally invasive treatment requiring little downtime. Treatment is completed in approximately 30 minutes and patients are generally able to return to their daily activities immediately after. An after-care procedure will be provided to you in clinic.

The most common side effects you may experience after the procedure is some bruising, tenderness and swelling which resolves within a few days. Makeup generally covers any sign of bruising. Our expert cosmetic doctors can prescribe medication if required for post-treatment comfort and instructions should be followed accordingly.

To decrease the longevity of any side effect and maximise your results, temporarily stop consuming alcohol and supplements that may worsen bruising. Do not rub at your treatment area after the procedure and wait a few days to return to activities such as exfoliating your nose.

Results are seen immediately after treatment and last between 1 to 2 years. The PDO threads that are inserted are generally absorbed by your body and dissolved after 9 months, but the increased projection and height of the nose will sustain for at least 12-18 months. If the treatment is repeated approximately 9 months after the initial treatment, results are then expected to be longer lasting, as collagen production is stimulated in the nose. As a result, some permanent lifting may occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is It Painful?

We use local anaesthetic through topical numbing cream or provide happy gas (nitrous oxide) to ease the experience when undergoing the treatment. This way, there is no pain experienced during the treatment. Most patients feel a pushing sensation when the threads are being inserted into the nose.

Are the Results Permanent?

Results can last between 1 to 2 years. If the treatment is repeated approximately 9 months after the initial treatment, results are then expected to be longer-lasting as collagen production is stimulated in the nose. As a result, some permanent lifting may occur.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
