Thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary dissolvable sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic injector simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it.


The threads are absorbed underneath the skin to boost collagen production which helps to fill gaps and restore elasticity in sagging skin.


A thread lift is not permanent and can't stop the process of aging completely, but the results last many years. The full effects of thread lifts are visible within days or weeks after insertion.


Thread lift is effective in tightening and lifting parts of the face including the forehead, jowls, under-eye area, and eyebrow. It may also be used to draw up and tighten the breasts.
