Nose thread lifts are a minimally-invasive surgical procedure used to augment and improve the shape and look of one’s nose. A trained doctor inserts threads into the nose in order to make the nose bridge sharper and well defined. The threads support the nose bridge, similar to scaffolding, sharpening the nose bridge and the nose tip.
The threads used in nose thread lifts are commonly made out of a 100% biocompatible material known as Polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are FDA approved and the body has no chance of rejecting them. They are naturally reabsorbed by the body over the course of many months.
Nose thread lifts are also known to carry fewer risks compared to conventional procedures like rhinoplasty and nose fillers. Further, nose thread lifts have a relatively low downtime and produce instant results.
It takes a skilled doctor to perform a nose thread lift operation. Some doctors have made a name for themselves at being extremely skilled in the art of performing a good nose thread lift. Below, we share our top three picks for the best nose thread lift doctors in Singapore.
Dr Chua Cheng Yu
The lead doctor of Veritas Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Chua Cheng Yu is a highly prominent aesthetic doctor known for his combination treatment style and evidence based methodology. Having cut his teeth in a variety of hospitals and private clinics, he decided to venture out with his own private practice, Veritas Medical Aesthetics, garnering rave reviews from both the public as well as industry insiders. He’s highly rated on his Google Business Listing and boasts a 4.7 star rating over 90 reviews.
He also hosts a personal blog at drcychua.com, where he’s built up a reputation of being very outspoken – often breaking out candid takes on the trends in the medical aesthetics industry.
He’s highly prominent on platforms such as Facebook and Instagram and many of his rather controversial articles like “Acne Scar Treatment (Singapore) CAN Be 100% Effective” have garnered lots of attention and discussion on beauty forums.
“I believe in only administering sustainable treatments that are backed by scientific treatment and real results. Honesty to patients isn’t a virtue, it’s a must,” claims Dr Chua on Veritas’ website. His patients can vouch for him — those who have received treatment from him quote him as a “sincere, patient and dedicated doctor” and “a doctor whom I can trust”.
When it comes to nose thread lifts specifically, Dr. Chua is a certified regional trainer for this procedure. In fact, he often has to resolve undesirable side effects such as thread extrusion and migrations from procedures done at other clinics. He believes in using ArtLift or UltraV threads as they are long lasting and do not migrate after insertion.

Here, Dr. Chua gives a private seminar in Yangon to doctors from both Thailand and Vietnam, countries in South East Asia with a bustling and vibrant aesthetic scene. Even amongst doctors who’ve cut their teeth in aesthetic hubs such as Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, Dr. Chua takes an active role in both imparting his deep knowledge as well as learning all he can from his regional colleagues.
Veritas Clinic is situated comfortably in town at Capitol Piazza, the clinic’s location perfect for the working crowd who are looking for lunch time procedures.

Dr Tan Ying Zhou
Dr. Tan’s expertise lies in nose augmentation like nose thread lifts and anti-aging solutions; he holds a strong belief that aesthetics can significantly enhance one’s confidence, and a good doctor-patient relationship is paramount in achieving that vision. He’s committed to helping patients retain their youth as much as possible and his wish is to transform the ageing process into a pleasant, graceful journey. As a leader in facial aesthetics, Dr Tan has been featured in beauty magazines in Singapore and has worked with several local influencers and celebrities.
Due to his likeable and easygoing personality, his patients have lauded him as “a doctor with a heart” and “a gem in the aesthetic industry”. He also takes the time to respond to any comments he receives on Google reviews, providing a nice personal touch to his online following.
Dr. Tan has penned several articles about nose threads and has shown great expertise in the subject, especially when it pertains to Asian noses. His engagement levels on various social media platforms including his own site are remarkably high; this article in particular has more than 130+ comments alone!
It’s obvious he doesn’t have a one size fit all approach to nose augmentation when you read his writing, using an evidence based approach to elucidate the subject to his readers. In his articles, he often has a cost efficient approach to recommending treatments to his patients, which I would call a genuine display of medical ethics!
We decided to travel down to Marina Boulevard to have a look for ourselves – the clinic is ensconced in a neat quiet corner at B2 and wasn’t hard to find at all. We found the interior and decor to be spacious and inviting. The staff were friendly and served us hot tea as we waited in the waiting area.
While the interior of Veritas had a grander feel to it, we found Mizu’s minimalist take quite to be refreshing and would definitely help to ease the stress levels of a patient nervous about going into surgery.

Dr Wilson Ho
Dr. Wilson Ho, also affectionately known as Singapore Aesthetic Doctor, carries an impressive portfolio which includes serving as a Medical Director for a regional aesthetic group that operated numerous clinics in five countries. While his specialty is mainly in customized laser treatments for the face, there is a lot of buzz in the industry about him and his nose thread lift results.
On his Facebook page, you’ll see many helpful medical guides and infographics that help his patient pool learn more about the various treatments and options that are available to them.
Carine (names have been changed to protect the patient’s identity), a new patient, had tried several injectables from other clinics but wasn’t too pleased with the results. She felt that her nose looked short and stubby and really wanted her nose bridge to become more prominent. She hadn’t been too eager for the treatment with Dr. Ho as the idea of threads being inserted into her nose permanently sounded scary and painful.
To her surprise, with the numbing cream applied, she found that there wasn’t much pain at all as Dr. Ho inserted the threads. Within a month of undergoing the threadlift, she noticed a remarkable change in the prominence of her nose bridge.
From this angle, Carine’s nose bridge is obviously higher and sharper. What’s even more remarkable is how natural the after photo looks – often, many nose thread lift patients complain that their noses bridge looks unnaturally narrow after a thread lift. This can be highly subjective and there are a demographic of patients that don’t mind having a very narrow nose bridge, as can be seen in the example below.
For this particular patient, we can see that the nose bridge is considerably lifted with the bridge appearing far more narrow as well as starting from a much higher position. The nose tip is also considerably sharpened and fits well with the rest of the nose. Dr. Ho is certainly well versed in many different styles of nose thread lifts and if you have a specific kind of end result you’re looking for, he might just be the doctor for you.
Icon Medical Aesthetics
Comfortably nested in Wisma Artia, the Icon premises exudes class and confidence. It looked more like the inside of a luxury department store than an aesthetic clinic! But beyond it’s gaudy exterior, we found that the staff was approachable and helpful, willing to answer our questions even though we expressly told them we weren’t here for a medical consultation.
