Thread Lift

Thread lifts offer patients a quick and painless way to wipe away the effects of aging without having to undergo surgery.

Special surgical Polydioxanone, (PDO) threads similar to those that have been used in heart surgery for years, are inserted and manipulated under the dermis to lift and tighten sagging skin and remove wrinkles. A thread lift in The Villages at Villages Institute of Plastic Surgery takes less than an hour and requires little to no recovery period other than avoiding makeup and pressure to the face for a day or two.

About PDO Threads and Thread Lift in The Villages

address the appearance of your skin

If you are considering plastic surgery or cosmetic treatments to slow or even reverse the effects of aging, it is important to consider not only the appearance of your skin but the physical condition and health of your skin.

In addition to the wrinkles and fine lines that appear in various areas of the face and neck as we age, collagen production also drops. Collagen is the “stress-resistant” protein that gives our skin that youthful look and keeps it from sagging. Threat lifts can address both the appearance of your skin as well is the skins ability to retain its shape and resist sagging.

What are PDO Threads

Village Institute of Plastic Surgery

PDO, (Polydioxanone) threads are biodegradable sutures that have been used in surgeries for many years. There are PDO threads that have been manufactured to have tiny barbs, and there are smooth PDO threads. Your goals and recommended treatment will determine which are most appropriate for your thread lift.

How is a PDO Thread Lift Performed

number of threads used will vary

General anesthesia is not used and no incisions are required. A topical local anesthetic is used to desensitize the areas of your face and neck to be treated.

Marks are made to plan how many threads will be used and where the they will be placed. Then a tiny hollow syringe with the PDO thread inside is inserted under the dermis in the planned areas. Once the syringe is in the proper position, it is removed leaving the thread in place to hold the tissue in its new position. Each patient is different so the number of threads used will vary.

Recovery after a PDO Thread Lift

initial results in days

There is usually little if any discomfort after a thread lift. No sutures are required since the treatment consists only of injections.

If there is any discomfort, it can be easily mitigated with Tylenol. There is usually some minor swelling, but this will subside after a few days and reveal the initial results. Patients are advised to avoid cosmetics, touching or sleeping on the treated areas for a few days immediately after their thread lift.

The Results You Can Expect

increased collagen production

Most patients are very excited with their new appearance. The results are for the most part immediate and will become more visible over the first couple of weeks as all swelling completely subsides. Over time, the results and condition of skin in the treated areas will continue to improve due to increased collagen production.

How Long do The Results of a Thread Lift Last

Village Institute of Plastic Surgery

As we mentioned, PDO threads are biodegradable so they do dissolve and are absorbed by the body. But this takes approximately six months. And while this is slowly taking place, the body is boosting collagen production which is improving the skin’s condition and it’s ability to hold its new shape and position for up to an additional six months.
