What are thread lifts?

A thread lift, often called the "lunch time face lift" is a minimally invasive procedure designed to raise the brows and cheeks, neck, jowls, and soften lines around the mouth and nose. Thread lifts are extremely effective for reducing the early signs of aging, and they produce lasting, natural looking results.


The Surgical Procedure

During a thread lift procedure Dr Mooney uses a fine needle to loop fine threads beneath the skin. The threads are inserted in a transverse pattern, where they can be raised and adjusted in order to lift the skin to a more flattering position. Each individual thread is attached to the tissues of the face, and over time, the threads become secure as the bodies own collagen begins to anchor them into place. As a thread lift only requires a tiny opening in the skin, there is little or no scarring following treatment. The end result is a subtle, but noticeable improvement in facial contour.

Notes about the surgery

Thread lifts are recommended for younger and middle aged patients who are not yet ready for a full facelift. A thread lift is not appropriate for patients with a large amount of loose, excess skin around the face and neck. The best candidates are men and women who are just beginning to experience the effects of ageing.

Patients who choose this course of treatment can usually postpone or eliminate the need for facelift surgery. A thread lift can be combined with other dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections by Dr Mooney for optimum results.

What to expect after surgery

A thread lift is performed in just under an hour, hence the name "lunch time" lift and patients can return home almost immediately. No skin is actually removed during a thread lift, only local aesthetic is required, and recovery is brief. One of the benefits of a thread lift is that the individual threads can easily be removed or adjusted at a later time. If there is any asymmetry following the procedure, only a slight adjustment is necessary to correct the problem.
