Non-Surgical Nose Augmentation with HIKO Nose Threadlift


The eagerly awaited HIKO nose threads have finally landed in Brisbane at your premiere aesthetic clinic, Eleventh Heaven™, and Dr. Ricky is the first doctor to introduce this treatment to Brisbane.

HIKO nose threads originated from Korea and HIKO means “high nose” in Korean. This procedure is now very commonly performed throughout Asia and is increasingly gaining popularity worldwide.

We utilise threads that are made of polydioxanone (PDO), a material that is commonly used in surgical sutures. These threads are then skilfully placed to lift & define the nose. Over time (between the 9-12 months mark) these threads dissolve and in doing so, encourage new collagen to grow to maintain the shape of the redesigned nose.


  • Significantly safer alternative to nose filler without the significant risks of vascular occlusion (which may lead to tissue necrosis, blindness or stroke);
  • A great alternative to a surgical rhinoplasty (in suitable candidates);
  • Safer non-surgical option with short procedural time.


  • You are seeking a higher or straighter nose bridge
  • You are desiring a more defined nose bridge
  • You are wanting a more refined nose tip
  • You wish to avoid surgical rhinoplasty
  • You want a safer alternative to nose filler


What are dermal fillers?

How long does the procedure take?

The injection procedure takes approximately 30-60 minutes.

Is it painful?

Dermal fillers are formulated with local anaesthetic so numbing effects start with the very first injection. Certain areas can be sensitive so numbing cream and/or ice will be used to further minimise discomfort.

Is there any downtime?

Minimal. As with every medical procedures, some swelling and bruises may occur but can be easily covered by make up after 24 hours post-procedure if needed.

How often do I need treatment?

The longevity of filler depends on its thickness, depth of placement, area injected – anywhere between 6 to 18 months.

* Individual results may vary
