Document | Procedure Main


A Thread Lift is a cosmetic procedure that uses thread to sculpt the face. Some people may experience side effects or complications.


A Thread Lift procedure involves inserting dissolvable threads under the skin with a thin needle. The threads have tiny barbs or cones that help them attach to the tissue and lift it. The threads also stimulate collagen production, which improves the skin’s firmness and elasticity. The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area and the number of threads used. The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia or sedation, but sometimes general anesthesia may be used. The procedure may cause discomfort, such as a pulling or tightening sensation, but most people tolerate it well.


You may be a good candidate for a Thread Lift if you want to improve the appearance of sagging or drooping skin on your face, but do not want to undergo surgery. You should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. However, a thread lift may not be suitable for everyone. You should not get a thread lift if you have any of the following conditions or situations:


The recovery time for a Thread Lift varies depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, the patient can expect to have some swelling, bruising, and soreness for the first few days or weeks. The patient should avoid any strenuous activities and follow the doctor’s instructions for wound care and medication. The patient may return to work after a few days or weeks, depending on the nature of the job. The final results of the procedure may take up to six months to appear, as the threads dissolve and the collagen forms.

At Ciplastic, the starting cost for a Thread Lift procedure is $100 usd per Thread. Your final cost will depend on your specific individual needs.

A Thread Lift is not a permanent solution, as the threads will eventually dissolve and the skin will return to its original position. However, a thread lift can last for about one to three years, depending on the individual and the area treated. To maintain the results, you may need to get touch-up treatments once or twice a year.

A Thread Lift is generally considered a safe and effective procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced doctor. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential complications. These include:

  • Pain, swelling, bruising, or infection at the treatment site.
  • Scarring, dimpling, or asymmetry of the skin.
  • Thread migration, protrusion, or breakage.
  • Nerve damage, facial weakness, or numbness.
  • Allergic reaction to the thread material or the anesthesia.
  • Rarely, lymphatic overload, which may cause nausea, dizziness, or fainting.
