Contour Threads

Contour Threads is an exciting new procedure that offers a simple and minimally invasive option to the traditional facelift. Using FDA-approved Contour Threads, the Thread Lift can reposition sagging cheeks, jowls, neck or eyebrows, or adjust asymmetric brows. A procedure with the patented Contour Threads is safe, conservative, and effective to offer subtle, natural-looking results.

The Contour Threads Facelift can address moderate drooping of the soft tissues of the brow, face and neck. The Contour Threads may also be used to improve poorly defined upper face , lower face, midface and neck contours.



In general, the best candidates are in their 30s through 60s with good skin condition.

What are Contour Threads?

The specially designed clear sutures have tiny barbs or cogs that are spaced evenly apart. Once inserted under the skin, they are fixated in an umbrella like fashion. The tension on the cogs creates suspension that gently lifts sagging tissues of the brow, face and neck.

Once in position, your body generates new collagen bundles that surround each thread to maintain the lifting effect. The placement of sutures and number required will vary from patient to patient.


Contour Threads Face Lift Surgical Time and Recovery:

The advantages to this procedure is there are no visible scars and the recovery time is minimal. Contour Threads are performed under local anesthesia and the actual length of time will depend on the number of threads used and the extent of the area treated.

A typical procedure takes 45 to 60 minutes to perform. In most cases, there is minimal discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Ice compresses are recommended for the first 48 hours. Patients can usually return to normal activities in a few days to one week.

Duration of Results:

The length of time the results last depends on the age of the patient, the degree of sagging, and the number of threads used. Additional threads may be added as needed.

The Contour Threads facelift allows for a traditional facelift, browlift, or neck procedure.
