What is Thread lift?
Thread-lift, also known as feather lift surgery, is a semi-invasive procedure to gently, lift sagging skin and produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. The thread-lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted in to the soft tissue of the body to lift and support sagging areas. It cannot offer the same results as original surgery would, but is a good option for a more subtle natural look.

Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance.

What are the areas that can be treated?

  • Sagging neck
  • Neck lines
  • Wrinkles on décolletage
  • Body: Sagging breasts, elbows, knees, upper arms, thighs, tummies and bottoms

Is it painful?
It is surprisingly comfortable – patients describe a stinging sensation, similar to acupuncture. If required, the procedure can be carried out using a local anaesthesia.

What should I expect after treatment?
As with any cosmetic treatment, there might be some temporary swelling, redness or bruising. This usually passes within a couple of days. Results take around 4-6 weeks to fully develop. A review after 2 weeks of the treatment to check on the progress, a further review after a month and a final appointment after 3 months is required, where before and after photographs will be compared and a top-up treatment is provided if necessary.
