I've had a nose thread done 2 months ago by a certified doctor who specialises in this field. However, the threads started deviating 2 weeks after it was done. I'd like to know if it is possible to remove the threads, and if not, what are the solutions to hasten the process of its "dissolvement". The segment of the thread that has deviation is the one that was placed higher on my nose bridge starting from slightly between the brows), and not the segment that is placed on my nose. I'm also worried about possible scar tissue formation during the process of thread removal. Any advice is appreciated!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (3)

Dear Chou,

Migrated nose threads that have extruded and are coming out of the skin can be removed via a small puncture with an 18g needle and careful extraction. Of course adequate local analgesia must be injected before hand. I have helped to resolve many such issues of overseas threadlift complications. 

The threads (if made of PDO) will take 6-12 months to fully dissolve and I’m not sure if you would want to wait that long. 

It’s best to go back to the surgeon who first treated you for his / her opinion before seeking second opinions if you are still unconvinced. 

Hope that helps !

Dear Chou,

I'm so sorry to hear that you have thread migration.

As Dr Israr Wong rightfully mentioned, nose threads can be removed via a small puncture with an 18G needle.

With regards to scarring, there is a possibility of a persistent scar at the entry point of the 18G needle.

The following can be done to minimise the risk of scarring:

1. Gentle technique to reduce tissue injury.

2. Use 1 needle entry point. However, More needle entry points may be required to adequately remove the threads.

Please have a detailed discussion with the doctor removing your threads!

Warmest regards,

Dr Justin Boey

The short answer is yes, they can be removed.

But this depends on the location, insertion technique and timing. And removal of threads leads to risk of poor wound healing, infection and even scarring.

The good thing is PDO threads are 100% dissolvable, so they will be absorbed into your skin within 3 months if the outcome was unsatisfactory. 

I hope this helps.
