Thread (Suspension) Lift

The Thread Lift procedure uses a hollow needle that a surgeon inserts a “feather-like” thread under the skin, starting near the cheekbone.  Since a needle is used, the Thread Lift incisions are minimal and shouldn’t leave any trace of scarring.  When attached, the surgeon can gently tug on the thread to adjust and tighten skin around the eyes, neck, lip, or brow.  New collagen forms around each thread to maintain the lifted effect.  Four threads are the minimum number needed to lift even the most moderately sagging skin.  Results of Thread Lifts are generally compared to those of mini facelifts. 

Contour Thread Lifts are quicker, cheaper and safer than more invasive facelifts.  Thread Lifts require only a couple of days of recovery and the results are immediate.  Because the procedure is only minimally invasive, there is no need for anesthesia.
