A thread lift is a non-surgical type of facelift that is minimally invasive and known for its rapid recovery time. It restores facial vitality and personal confidence without the downtime required for a traditional facelift. In a thread lift procedure, the physician inserts a barbed suture under the skin that anchors loose skin to the underlying tissue. There are minimal incisions, relatively little bruising, and the recovery time is negligible.
Our physician and staff perform thread lifts as an outpatient procedure under local anaesthetic. These procedures usually take two hours and patients are expected to be able to return to work in 1-2 days. We provide the full continuum of care from initial consultation to post-op follow-up, including detailed instructions for recovery, activities, care, assistance, and pain management. Thread lift procedures are significantly more affordable than traditional facelifts or other more invasive surgical procedures.
Thread lifts are ideal procedures for people with moderate signs of ageing. The majority of thread lift procedures are performed on women aged 35 to 45 years and are highly effective on saggy skin and wrinkles. This procedure is often used in combination with other facelift procedures to optimize results and provide additional soft tissue support for maximum results.
