Ideal treatment for:

  • Lift and reposition sagging skin on the face
  • Restore the contour of the cheeks
  • Lift nasolabial folds and jowls
  • Re-establish a natural and youthful facial shape
  • Re-establish a stronger jawline
  • Improve skin quality

Lift and support sagging skin around the face for tighter, smoother and more contoured skin. Thread lift is ideal for lifting and tightening skin around the cheeks, neck, jowls, eyebrows and nose to undo the effects of gravity and achieve a younger appearance, with minimal downtime compared to surgery.

How it works

A thread lift involves the use of temporary sutures to produce a subtle but visible lift in the skin around the face. Instead of surgically removing loose facial skin, portions of the face are resuspended. This has the effect of pulling back the skin and tightening the face.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Special fine threads with barbs or cogs are placed under the skin using special needles. The barbs allow the threads to anchor to the tissues. When they are in the correct position, the top ends of the threads are pulled, tightened and secured to mobilise soft tissues into the new position.

Once the threads are in place, they stimulate collagen production around them. This helps in securing the tissues in the new lifted position, with further improvement seen over the following months.  

The number of threads used and the exact placement site depends on patient’s needs, facial structure and degree of sagging. Our experienced doctors use a number of different types of thread depending on what is most suitable for the patient.

The recovery time is minimal compared to traditional facelift surgery, with low risk for scarring and bruising. Some discomfort is experience when local anaesthesia is injected, but no or minimal discomfort is felt after that.

  • Infection
  • Thread breakage and migration (very rare with newer threads and good technique)

The usual recovery period following the thread lift procedure is 5-7 days.
