I kept this to myself for a long time and I was pretty affected by it. Now that things have gotten better, I am finally ready to share my experience.
I’m a very vain girl and wanting to look good gave me the courage to try out aesthetic procedures on my face even though I have a low threshold for pain.
About a year ago, I did my first ever nose thread lift procedure with Clinic S (I shall not name any clinic or doctor in this post, so let’s keep it as Clinic S and Dr. C). I heard so many positive reviews of Nose Thread Lift and I was convinced by Dr. C to give it a shot. I was super excited about it. However, my nose thread lift failed.
I do not mean that I was unsuitable for the procedure. But the result was so bad that I cried. My nose was in a terrible state for almost a year. It was slanted and it was so obvious in all my videos and on photos. Dr. C couldn’t do anything much to salvage the damage even though he was the one who performed the procedure on me. You can’t remove the threads once they are “buried” deep inside”.
I was left with no choice but to live with it. It was such a tough period for me.
If you guys do not know what Nose Thread lift is, it’s a very common procedure where vain girls like me do it to enhance our nose bridge to make it look higher.
A reminder to you guys, please do your research thoroughly on the clinic and doctor before booking an appointment for your nose thread lift.
Unlike fillers, nose thread lift is irreversible. The only thing you can do when the procedure is badly done is to wait, and it takes about 1 to 2 years for the threads to dissolve fully! That’s a long time. Imagine spending money and then making yourself look bad. That sucks.
I was so sad during that period because my nose was slanted and my nose bridge looked so fake and thin.
I would love to show you how it looked back then, but during that period I was too embarrassed to take pictures. I even cut my bangs in an attempt to hide the flaw.
I went to seek another doctor’s opinion in the hopes that my nose could be rectified. Since my mom saw celebrity doctor, Dr. Gerard Ee, from The Clifford Clinic (she paid for her Face Thread Lift there and she even did Profhilo there recently), so I went to him for a consultation. He saved me from this disaster. He did radiofrequency treatments for me to make the threads dissolve faster.
I have known Dr. Gerard Ee for a long time and I trust him a lot. I was so glad that he could help me fix my nose. Although we had to play the waiting game, the threads dissolved bit by bit over time, and eventually, he managed to help me correct it.
After the threads were more or less dissolved, I went back for another nose treatment. Instead of Nose Thread Lift (which was recommended by Dr. Ee), I opted for nose fillers on my nose bridge instead. The reason is simple, there were still some threads left from my previous nose thread lift at the lower part of my nose, and I must say that I still have a phobia with nose threads now.
Can you tell I’m very excited? Numbing my nose for my nose filler treatment in the Clifford clinic!
Dr. Ee doing the markings!
Here we go! With the help of the numbing cream, the pain level was 3/10. All it took was 60 – 90 seconds and we were done.
Take a look at my before/after photo from my nose fillers. (Disclaimer: I am not paid to say anything. I love my nose too much now! I need to share it!)
Dr. Ee added some fillers to the top of the nose. Fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is also responsible for giving the skin a plump, hydrated look.
The nose is still slightly swollen in the picture but it is looking a lot better already.
I LOVE MY NOSE SO MUCH NOW!
My nose is straight and natural. Thank you so much Dr. Gerard Ee and The Clifford Clinic!
I have a lot of praises for Dr. Gerard Ee. Not trying to be biased but he really did such a great job in correcting my nose. Let’s be honest. My slanted nose was difficult to fix but Dr. Ee is just so professional and skilled. He assured me that he will be able to fix it slowly. I definitely felt so much better under his care. I will recommend Dr. Ee if you are looking at doing nose fillers or nose thread lift.
And remember, please do your research extremely carefully and ask around for feedback before selecting your clinic/doctor.
