What is HIKO Nose?

HIKO Nose thread lift is a non-surgical method developed in Korea.

It is the most recent non-surgical procedure to help patients augment their nose.

The word “HIKO” means “High Nose” in Korean.

HIKO Nose thread lift is suitable for straightening the nose, giving it a contoured definition, and treating crooked noses.

This treatment is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and has a short recovery period as compared to traditional rhinoplasty, which requires surgery and incisions.

It also avoid any concerns that nose fillers have such as migrating or forming lumps. With HIKO Nose thread lift, the nose appears slimmer and more straightened.

How Does HIKO Nose work?

During HIKO Nose thread lift procedure, individual short (3.8cm to 7cm) threads are inserted into the nasal bridge or columella. 

This non-surgical, minimally invasive process reshapes the nose to the patient’s desired height, shape, and definition.

Why HIKO Nose?

Compared to nose fillers, HIKO Nose thread lifts can last up to 2 years, giving it a more long-lasting option. 

Unlike nose fillers, HIKO Nose thread lifts do not shift or spread over time. As the nose threads dissolve, it can help to stimulate collagen production so that the nose still looks naturally defined.

HIKO Nose helps achieve:


Each HIKO Nose thread lift treatment session typically take around 20 – 30 mins. That is why it is dubbed the “lunch time nose job” in Asia and is becoming increasingly popular among our patients.

The results of the HIKO Nose thread lift are seen immediately. When the collagen stimulation is fully activated, expect full results 1 to 2 months after the nose augmentation.

For HIKO nose threads, even though the threads start dissolving after 18 to 24 months, results may last between 24 to 36 months because of the stimulated collagen.

Only 1 session of HIKO Nose thread lift is required. However, if you want the best outcomes, you should schedule a follow-up appointment a year later. Some permanent lifting can be noticed with regular stimulation and creation of collagen in the nose.

The nasal area to be treated will be cleansed and disinfected after the assessment. Following that, our doctor will apply an anaesthetic cream and administer an anaesthetic injection to ensure that the entire HIKO Nose thread lift procedure is painless.

Patients can resume their normal routine and apply makeup immediately after HIKO Nose thread lift procedure.

There are no known side effects though there may be some temporary swelling which usually wears off in a few hours. There may also be some slight bruising around the nasal bridge which typically goes away after a few days.
