Nose job, it’s probably one of the most common cosmetic surgery in the beauty industry. However, it comes with the price of going under the knife. Personally, as much as I admire the perfection of those cosmetically enhanced noses, I always have a big fear of going under the knife. The recovery process, the pain and suspense of whether the surgery is a success or not is just too much for me to digest. Hence, I always look for quick, fuss-free and low maintenance procedures like fillers and thread lift.
My nose is quite bulbous with little definition on the nose bridge. I was looking for something to give my nose more height and structure so naturally, nose thread lift is the best solution.
What is Hiko Nose Thread Lift?
Hiko Nose Thread Lift is a non-surgical solution to lift the nose for a more defined look. The threads are made up of PDO (polydioxanone) and such dissolvable threads are also commonly used in surgical sutures. As it can be safely absorbed by our body, it is also a much safer option for a non-surgical nose enhancement.
Personally, I have done both thread lifts and nose fillers. However, something that I am wary about fillers is the possibility of fillers migration and potential blindness when administered by an unskilled professional. Nobody wants an avatar nose, it’s definitely not attractive and the only way to resolve a botched nose filler job is to dissolve it. That means all the money that you have pumped into getting a nicer nose will be dissolved as well. The circled area is the slight migration of my previous fillers that caused my nose to appear slanted.
That being said, I still have to emphasise that the best combination for a beautiful nose without going under the knife is still threads & fillers together. Just go to someone reputable and stick with a doctor that you can trust. All will be fine when you are in good hands.
With Hiko Nose Thread Lift, the results provide more satisfaction with a lower possibility of complications. The best part about it is, it also stimulates collagen production hence, providing more support and definition to your nose even when it has been fully absorbed by your body.
The Hiko Nose Thread Lift procedure is extremely fast and painless with The Clifford Clinic. I remember my first thread lift experience took almost an hour, but this time, it barely took 15 minutes. I wasn’t even convinced that the procedure was done until I saw my nose in the mirror.
Hiko Nose Thread Lift is a very quick and painless procedure with Dr Chow. First, Dr Chow marked my nose to correct the slight slant on my nose bridge. This is to ensure that the threads will be inserted in line to straighten my nose. Once it’s done, he then proceeds to inject some anaesthesia to numb the nose. The injection is not very painful, I would rate it 2/10, but it completely numbed my nose so I couldn’t feel much of the thread lift insertion right after.
Once my nose is completely numbed, Dr Chow created an entry hole with a needle to prepare the insertion of the threads. The threads are inserted into the nose using a canula needle as a guide for placement. I felt no pain, just a slight discomfort from the needles going in and out to place the threads. You will feel a slight tightness along your nose which is normal because that means that your nose is getting more defined and taller! At The Clifford Clinic, you get unlimited threads so the doctor will only stop when you are satisfied with the results of your nose.
At 8 threads, my nose look much more defined. Dr Chow then proceeded to add 2 more as what I am seeing is the effect with a slight swell. The 2 extra threads will give me the results of the nose bridge height that I like once the swelling is gone. I had a total of 10 threads in my nose to create the perfect height.
Downtimes, Risks & Recovery
Hiko Nose Thread Lifts has little downtime, you can expect swelling and bruising.
For my experience with The Clifford Clinic under the skilled hands of Dr Chow, my recovery was smooth and I had zero downtime. I encountered a bit of swelling only on the first night of my procedure. I recommend sleeping with your head slightly propped higher to help with the discomfort and swelling. The very morning, my nose looked completely fine and there was zero discomfort or sensitivity to the touch. That is the expertise of Dr Chow.
I remembered during my first Nose Thread Lift procedure elsewhere, I had a bad bruising on my nose bridge for almost 2 weeks. My nose was so sensitive to the touch that I couldn’t even put on makeup to cover the bruising. This is why, going to a skilled professional who has done this procedure countless times is extremely important.
The risks for this procedure is low as well, with the slight possibility of threads rejection whereby the threads will poke out of the entry hole. This almost never happen can be easily solved by going back to your doctor.
Overall, I LOVE the results of my nose thread lift with Dr Chow at The Clifford Clinic. His expertise in perfecting the art of nose enhancement is superb so I highly recommend a consultation with him if you are keen in getting a non-surgical nose procedure done. It just 15 minutes, I have a perfectly enhanced nose without much downtime. What more can a girl ask for? For more information about nose thread lift, the prices etc; feel free to call in or drop The Clifford Clinic a message. The kind staffs will gladly attend to your queries.
Cheers to a beautiful nose and thank you for reading!
Pitted scars, sun spots and uneven pigmentation - No matter how perfect your skin is, I am sure you suffer from at least one of these issues. You are not the only one, and that is also probably the reason why you are here searching for a solution to get perfect clear skin. For half my life, I have been battling with acne. Now, with it partially under control, I have to deal with the aftermath of the damaged tissues caused by my severe cystic pimples. There are many promises from skincare and aesthetic treatments alike, but none have come on par to Dr Israr Wong’s revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment.
Before we delve deeper into this highly specialised treatment concocted by Dr Wong, I would like to highlight that I have tried a good number of treatments to know what is a marketing gimmick and what truly is something we should consider. From skincare, lasers and even fillers, I have to admit, nothing beats this power-duo that I am about to share with you today.
CLICKBAIT?! SHOCKER?! YOU MUST BE KIDDING?!
Nope, none of the above. All facts and truths here, tried & tested. You can now get abs literally just by laying down! Have a short 30 minutes to spare? Pop in, take a half an hour nap and let technology work for you. Well, at least that was what I did and I saw shockingly amazing results!
A little backstory before we delve into this mysterious world of EMSCULPT®. Well, I have always been on the slightly meatier side (blame genetics!) so the gym is no stranger to me. As much as I hate strength & cardio trainings, I have to force myself to complete at least 3 hours of workouts per week just to maintain my figure. Workouts, fad diets, you name it, I have tried it. Imagine my curiosity when I found out that a machine can actually "DO" your workout for you without you physically breaking out a sweat! I knew I had to give it a try. Lo & behold, this procedure definitely lived up to its name and I think this is the next big thing for those who are always dreaming of em' rock hard abs!

REVIEW: Look & Feel Younger Amidst Your Busy Schedule With Eucerin® NEW Hyaluron-Filler Overnight Treatment & Hyaluron Filler Range
Being at the mercy of time, I often find myself in denial, thinking that I can always be young. Sadly, some truths can never be hidden and I am definitely not shy of having one (or two) wrinkles slowly making its way to my face. I also see my skin looking dull and appearing older than it is. On top of that, due to the hectic pace of my ultra packed schedule and many late nights, I can NEVER find the energy to commit to an extensive night skincare regime. Usually, I will only slap on a thin layer of sleeping mask when my skin is feeling dry. I know, I am not the best with my skin, but I promise I am working on it!
That being said, there is finally some light on my constant lookout for a fuss-free night-time skincare product to treat the worry about my dull ageing skin. Eucerin® recently launched a 2-in-1 Hyaluron-Filler Overnight Treatment that not only sloughs away the signs of time, it also hydrates the skin. Eucerin® has been around the skincare market for a WHOPPING 130 YEARS so I'm sure they know what works and what doesn't! This dermatological brand is renowned for creating efficacious skincare that works even for sensitive skin. Sounds too good to be true? Read on and be amazed, the Hyaluron-Filler Overnight Treatment has been on my top-shelf ever since I tried it for the first time!
Perched amidst the dreamy Himalayas, we have Bhutan, one of the most exclusive country to explore. The top question that I got from everyone was, "Why Bhutan?" Let's just say, I had a calling and I answered. The rest was history and Bhutan has officially topped all my wanderlust adventures around the world.
Prior to my trip, I had no idea what to expect and little information about this magnificent country was available online. Luckily, I was recommended Dragon Trails Tour after doing a vote on Instagram & it was honestly the best decision I have ever made. FYI, independent travel is forbidden in Bhutan therefore you will need to go through some form of an agency to get your trip sorted. I actually tried a couple concurrently but felt that Dragon Trails Tour were the most sincere in making my Bhutan experience a memorable one.
Today's post is going to be one of the most highly requested travel post because everyone is so curious about this "exotic" country. I will try my best to fill you in and give all the tips that I have but trust me, the experience is unique to each & is definitely not one to be missed. I went there with an open heart and now it is filled with beautiful memories. I can't wait to go back.
