thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure which helps in lifting sagging skin for a younger and revitalised look.

Thread lift is also known as lunchtime facelift or weekend lift as it takes very little time to conduct the procedure.

Thread lift is a very simple procedure that requires no incisions or stitches and, when performed by an expert, can create great results.

A thread lift is a fantastic solution for skin laxity in the upper, mid, and lower face and neck. In most cases, the most natural results are achieved through a combination of thread lift and dermal fillers (to remedy volume loss).

There are different types of threads.

1. Threads with barbs (some barbed threads are absorbable and some are non-absorbable)

Barbed non-sutured monofilament polypropylene threads (Polypropylene sutures were modified by designing many dents along their lengths. These threads hold tissue firmly because of the sharp edges to the dents) and allows to relieve facial soft tissue ptosis when it is light or moderate. This method is believed to possibly lift different areas of the three-thirds of the face. Barbed polypropylene threads are inserted through the fat tissue with only a long and thin needle as a guide.

2. Threads with cones. (they are usually absorbable type of threads with multiple cones along the thread)

It is made of Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA), it is a well-known polymer that has been used for many years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications: suture thread, orthopaedic pins, rods, screws and nails for bone fractures. It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed.

This technique leaves no scars and can be successfully used for all areas of the face and neck resulting in a fresher and younger look. Recovery time is minimal so that the patient can quickly go back to their full social life.

The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing the tissue and elevating the skin at the time of implanting the suture. After inserting the suture, Dr Attalla applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.

Non Surgical Facelift

A new thread lift procedure has been developed, changing the concept of minimally-invasive face lift technology, and adding a new dimension to traditional thread pulling. The new thread lift is a non-surgical facelift that eliminates the need to cut the skin or use stitches like in older thread lift procedures.

Previously, the old thread lift used primitive technology to pull the skin and the subcutaneous tissues in certain direction (or ‘vector’) to achieve lifting results. The new thread lift works on two fronts, creating both strong pulling and volume redistribution effects through the use of modern silhouette soft threads.

This technology allows us to move sagging skin and relaxed subcutaneous tissues to substitute for facial volume loss: an effect similar to a mini-facelift, without the requirement for incisions or scars in front of the ears. This aspect of the new thread lift also minimises the need to use fillers for remedying areas of volume loss.

What does the procedure involve?

Thread lifts are performed under local anaesthesia with the patient provided a mild sedative thirty minutes prior to surgery.

Before the procedure begins, the surgeon marks the areas of concern. A mixture of local anaesthetic and adrenaline is then injected into the entry points. These injections ensure the patient won’t feel the threads as they are being stitched into the skin and help to minimise post-procedure bruising.

Once the area is numb, the surgeon creates an entry point in the skin using a needle and inserts the threads. The threads are slid in opposing directions, pulling the skin to ensure the best possible effect before the surgeon anchors the thread and finalises the procedure.

Common Side-effects

The most common side-effect experienced in thread lifts is post-procedural swelling. This is a normal reaction, occurring mainly due to the injection of fluid and local anaesthetic during the procedure. This swelling can typically be expected to last for two days and will gradually subside over the following week.

The second most common side effect experienced with thread lifts is bruising—fortunately, this is usually minimal. If it causes concern, however, bruising can be easily treated using vascular laser.

Another common side effect which may result from a thread lift is ‘puckering’. This term refers to small dents at the entry points of the threads; this is not a cause for alarm, and usually resolves within two weeks without any further intervention.

Most Popular FAQs

Usually, we use 6-8 threads on each side to get the best long lasting results.

We usually use a combination of more than one type of thread in a single procedure to address the skin and subcutaneous tissues.

You can combine the thread with dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injection or other skin rejuvenating procedures like peels and laser.

The cost of thread lift varies depending on the area treated; the number of threads used and amount of skin laxity.

The most common complication is swelling after thread lift; this is mainly as a result of the fluid and local anaesthesia injected during the procedure and less due to local inflammatory effect of the healing process. The swelling usually last for two days and then goes down gradually over a week.


Bruising is the second most common side effect and it is usually minimal and can be treated easily these day using vascular laser. Puckering which are small dents at the entry points of the threads is another common side effect and usually it resolves spontaneously in 2 weeks.

It takes it four weeks for the swelling and puckering to resolve and the skin will feel slightly pulled.

Fibrous tissue bands are the normal support of the skin to the deeper layers, and it prevents the skin from sagging. When we age, we lose the fibrous tissue support, and the skin starts to become saggy and droopy with gravity.


The threads usually get absorbed by the body in 12 months, and during this time, the threads will be replaced by your own body collagen and fibrous tissue and that help over that period to lift your skin and give you a younger look.

The rejuvenating and enhancing properties of a thread lift are immediate and discreet. It’s important to be aware that it may take up to four weeks for any swelling, puckering, and feelings of tightness to resolve and for the full effect of the results to be evident. 

The results of a thread lift result last from two to three years, and it is strongly advised that patients book in a ‘review’ thread treatment one to two years after the initial consultation. This ‘review’ treatment uses a single thread on each side to maintain the outcome of the procedure and will ensure results last longer.

The best candidates for thread lifts are those patients who retain good skin volume in the face but are suffering from moderate skin laxity. Those patients who lack volume in the face are less likely to see such strong benefits of a thread lift and thus are not good candidates. In this instance, we advise patients have a procedure to improve facial volume, so the thread lift is more effective.
