Nonsurgical rhinoplasty using threads has gained popularity in recent years. While the benefits of this procedure are being emphasized, possible complications and their management are not well-known. This study aimed to present the surgical management and results of the complications of thread rhinoplasty.
We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of seven patients who underwent revision rhinoplasty due to the complications of thread rhinoplasty from January 2018 to May 2021. The presentation of complications, detailed surgical procedure, and the outcomes of revision rhinoplasty were reviewed.
Visible or extruded threads at the tip were the most common complication, followed by dorsum irregularity. All the threads were not absorbed and intact in shape, even several years after insertion. Thread removal required careful tissue dissection, resulting in the loss of tip support and dorsal irregularity. To restore the tip support and camouflage the dorsum shape, an autologous tissue graft was required.
Removal of threads at the tip and dorsum accompanied structural weakening and partial tissue loss, which required tip support restoration and dorsum camouflage.
