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?

Cheers to a beautiful nose and thank you for reading!
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!
Ciao, my beautiful internet friends! The long awaited reveal on what I did at Kowayo Aesthetics in early May this year is finally here! 2017 felt like a year for fillers. Almost everyone is getting fillers because it is a quick fix to get instant taller, more defined features without going under the knife. It is so accessible and the procedure can be done in under 30 minutes. Why would anyone want to get an operation done anymore?
Taller Nose Bridge Without An Operation? Yes!
Approximately 1.5 years ago, I had my first nose fillers experience. I love the definition of my nose but I wanted something slightly taller so that it would still look defined without spamming half a pan of highlighter. During my consultation with Dr Wong, I briefly mentioned about my concerns and he recommended a slight top of of fillers with an added touch of Botox. Yes, BOTOX! It is possible for the nose so if you are interested in minimising the size of your nose without going under the knife, this treatment will be your saving grace!
Acne is the ultimate bane of our existence, especially during our teenage adolescent days. The volcanic red bumps that ooze pus not only looks extremely unsightly, it also leaves a nasty scar for the unlucky. Unfortunately, I am one of the few unlucky ones that suffer from major acne scarring. No, I am not talking about the pigmentation scars that disappear after a couple of years. I am referring to the deeply pitted acne scars that last a lifetime. Even after clearing my acne, I am still plagued by the ugly pitted boxcar scars that are scattered all around my forehead and cheeks. For the longest time, it has affected my confidence and I could never post a photo up without photoshopping my scars away.
Fret Not, There's Hope!!!
Thankfully, Dr KS Wong heard my pleas and introduced Kowayo Baby Skin Booster (逆龄针), the LATEST scar fillers in Singapore, and I am so excited to share my amazing results in today's entry. THERE IS HOPE DARLINGS! You will never face the mirror the same way again!
Oh yes, you read that title right! You must be thinking, how is it possible to alter your facial features without surgery?! Well, I was skeptical too but then again, with technology nowadays, anything is possible! Today, I will be sharing my secret on how I got a slimmer face without surgery or injectables.
A few weeks back, I was introduced to Kowayo Aesthetics and had the wonderful opportunity to try out their treatments. Conveniently located, the cosy abode of Kowayo Aesthetics is a great place to pamper and rejuvenate yourself after a long week of hustling.
