Thread Lift

Thread Lift is a long-lasting anti-ageing treatment to lift the sagging skin using the specialized surgical threads. It gives you a youthful and blooming appearance.

The following can opt for Thread Lift Procedure:

  • You have sagging cheeks.

  • You have a loss of facial volume.

  • You have deep lines and wrinkles.

  • You have jowls.

  • You have double chin.

  • You have turkey neck.

  • You want to opt for a non-surgical facelift or neck lift.

Expected Outcome

  • The skin will immediately look firmer and lifted.

  • Lost volume will be restored over time as the collagen production will be stimulated..

  • Face moulds itself and collagen is built gradually.


  • The procedure is carried under local anesthesia.

  • Sensitive individuals may feel slight discomfort during the procedure.

  • Special surgical threads are used to hold the repositioned skin and facial tissues.

  • Thin threads are inserted into face through tiny incisions made in the targeted areas.

  • These threads attach to skin tissue which are then pulled back to lift the skin.

  • Once threads are knotted, they hide within the skin and the procedure will not have any scarring virtually visible.

  • The treatment lasts upto 18 months and the lifestyle choices and sun exposure affects the results.

  • Daily skin care regime is necessary.

Post Operation Care

  • Do not undergo any beauty or dental treatments for next two weeks atleast.

  • Avoid contact sports for first few weeks.
