A thread lift, sometimes referred to as a "lunchtime lift," uses absorbable, barbed sutures to offer a tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face and neck.

This minimally invasive procedure works by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin in order to produce healthier, firmer skin. It can also mechanically lift tissues where the barbed sutures are placed.

What a thread lift can treat

  • Early loosening of the facial structures
  • Jowls
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Premature loosening of the neck skin

Who is a good candidate for a thread lift?

A thread lift procedure can be beneficial for both men and women who are wanting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and early jowls on the face. This procedure can also reduce the appearance of sagging skin, as it gently pulls the skin tighter.

It also offers immediate results without the downtime or scarring that occurs with a surgical facelift procedure. If you desire natural-looking results for firmer skin, then a thread lift may be the right procedure for you. During a consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your anatomy and review your goals to decide if you are a candidate for a thread lift.
