A thread lift corrects the sagging of skin we often see with age by using supporting surgical sutures to lift and rejuvenate the face.

As we age there are many changes in the face. The effect of sun damage changes the quality of the skin, the cheek area loses volume, the brows drop and the lower face and neck sag creating deep folds in the cheek and the development of jowls and folds in the neck.

Thread lifts is  considered a non-surgical procedure intended to lift sagging facial skin without invasive surgery. A Thread Lift can also be used to adjust asymmetric brows. The procedure involves redraping of the skin and does not involve the disruption of the underlying muscles or tissue layers. The Feather Lift can be done under local anesthesia.

The new revitalizing threads are very different to the older threads that were used in the past. The new threads (unlike the conventional smooth threads) have small soft barbs (also known as cogs) that resemble a fish bone. When inserted just under the skin the cogs cling to the facial soft tissue, gently lifting the tissue and thereby providing a new support scaffolding that lifts and holds the tissue in place. These new threads rebuild the structure of your skin from within.


Thread Lifts can:

•    Lift and add volume to sagging cheeks
•    Elevate sagging brows
•    Elevate and refresh marionette lines and nasolabial grooves
•    Support and revitalize the neck area
•    Correct asymmetry of the brow and face
•    Revitalize and lift the jowl area

Over a period of nine to twelve months the threads dissolve – but before dissolving they produce fibrosis that in turn creates a new support scaffolding of collagen for the skin. This new scaffolding can lift and support the thread lift for many years to come. In addition to the lift effect, the thread lift creates new skin firmness and may assist with improved skin colour, skin tone and texture.

thread lift preserves the natural contours of the face, so that the results are more subtle and natural looking. The results are achieved without hospitalisation, without scarring and with a minimum of downtime. In fact, you can return home within a few hours and resume normal activities after a few days.

The advantage of absorbable threads is that they will not impact on any future procedures (should you wish further thread lifts or other lifts in years to come).

In addition to restoring the natural facial contours there are also other advantages of a thread lift procedure, including new skin firmness, and the procedure may improve skin colour, tone and texture. The thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can be carried out in the doctor’s medical suite with a minimum of downtime and at a cost much less than a conventional facelift.

Unlike traditional face-lifting procedures, the Thread Lift dissolvable threads offer a “soft” surgical approach and in typical cases do not leave any scars on the skin. The typical thread lift takes from 45 to 90 minutes depending on the number of threads, after which you can return home within a few hours
