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 where there is no cutting and no stiches. It creates great results in experienced hands.

Thread lift is a great solution for upper, mid, lower face and neck skin laxity. Combination of threads lift and dermal fillers for volume loss is required in most of the cases to achieve more natural results.

There are different types of threads.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Most Popular FAQs

Thread lift usually is done under local anaesthesia. For the patient anxiety a mild sedative is given half an hour prior to surgery.

The area of concern is marked and local anaesthesia with adrenaline is injected in the entry points. Local anaesthesia with adrenaline is used to minimise bruising after the procedure.

Injection of diluted local anaesthesia called tumescent along the marked lines so the patient does not feel the threads while they are stitched under the skin. An entry point is created in the skin using a large gauge needle. The surgeon slides the threads in two directions and then the skin is pulled to get the best pulling and anchoring effect.

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 month, 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.
