Thread lifts, also known as suture lifts, involve the use of threads or sutures made from the same materials used in surgery to close wounds. When placed under the skin, they can be used to tighten and increase volume in areas of the skin that are loose or sagging. Much like suspension cables, they are designed to hold up the skin in place, and provide a supportive structure that defies the effects of gravity and ageing.
Thread lifts are a convenient ‘lunchtime’ facial rejuvenation alternative, which requires no general anaesthesia, hospitalization or long recovery, and gives immediate results which continue to improve up to 2 months after the procedure. They can be performed in various areas of the face and body, to target specific problem areas, or to give an overall facial rejuvenation from the brows to the neck area. They are an ideal option for those who want a natural yet unmistakable improvement, without all the stress and worries of a full surgical procedure.
Thread lifts can be a great way to rejuvenate and restore youthful contour areas such as the brows, cheeks, jowls and the neck area. They can also be used to give youthful tone to areas on the body such as the breasts, buttocks and upper arms, places that are prone to sagging and loss of volume due to weight loss, poor muscle tone, or the ageing process. Vaginal threads are also available that help to tighten the perineal muscle and vaginal passage, for a functional and aesthetic improvement.
