Nostril Slimming / Cat Whisker ™
Introducing a Revolutionary Procedure: Nose
Thread Lift for Wide Noses
Patients have many concerns when they are seeking cosmetic improvements for their nose. Some patients feel like they lack a nose bridge projection (and maybe due to genetic factors) and wish to augment their bridge.
Some patients have a “hump” on the nasal bridge and wish to minimize that hump. A very common concern patients have regarding their nose is that their nostrils (Ala) are too wide. A “normal” alar base width is typically the same width as the intercanthal space (between the inner corner of the eyes).

How Does a Nostril Slimming / Cat Whisker Work?
See the diagram below. If the alar width is wider than this distance, patients may perceive that their nose or nostrils are too wide. The alar width can also expand during smiling due to the muscles in the ala that cause them to flare. The flaring is commonly treated with neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport, which relax the muscles.
A common procedure involves going under the knife or getting a surgery called Alar Base Reduction, whereby a surgeon makes an incision and sews the alar back in a more narrow position. Sometimes, small segments of the nostril are removed to reduce the overall size and shape of the nostril.
A Revolutionary Minimally Invasive Approach:
Non-Surgical Nose Thread Lift
Now a non-surgical option is possible to narrow the Ala width. Dr. TJ Tsay has developed a technique called CAT WHISKER TM using absorbable PDO threads to literally pull the outer edges of the ala to a more narrow position.
This nose thread lift procedure for wide noses involves precisely guiding a barbed thread underneath the base of the nose. After the guide is removed, there are short thread segments protruding from the sides of the nostrils. These short segments (which resemble a “Cat Whisker”) are then buried underneath the upper lip area in a criss-cross fashion to hide any visible threads.
Smooth PDO nose threads are then inserted in the nostrils to further tighten the ala. Finally, neurotoxins are injected into the ala to relax and atrophy the muscles of the nostrils.
Nostril Slimming / Cat Whisker TM by Dr. Tsay
This procedure is NOT claiming to substitute for the Alar Base Reduction surgery as it does have its limitations. First of all, the results are NOT permanent. The PDO threads dissolve after 6-8 months, but the effects usually last longer than that. Individual results may vary.
