Thread Lift

The thread lift or feather lift is a less invasive surgical option, which is often used for people who seek minor improvements to treat sagging or laxity in the eye, forehead, and nasolabial fold areas. The lift can be performed under local anesthesia, where the surgeon uses a barb suture technique. The threads that hold the skin in place will not be reabsorbed or be dissolved and remain in place. The thread plus the barbs are the only things keeping the lift in effect, as no skin is cut away.

Specific complications of the thread lift include puckering skin, the visibility of the threads and the appearance of lumps. Treatment for these effects range from oral medications to surgical intervention. A study by Abraham RF suggest that the long-term effects of this procedure are less esthetically pleasing than other surgical options.


  • A thread lift is largely unavailable face lifting technique. Thread lifts were meant to address sagging underlying tissues of the cheek and jaw line by threading 4-to-12 barbed sutures into your skin and deeper soft tissues. The non-absorbable threads stay within the deep tissues and provide support.
  • A thread lift can be referred to as a minimally-invasive surgical procedure to lift.  But as those who’ve undergone a thread lift can attest, getting the procedure isn’t painless or without potential complication.
  • Potential complications of a thread lift are puckering where the barb is pulling, visibility of the blue thread through the skin, and threads poking through the skin.
  • A thread lift, while less invasive than a facelift, is surgery, and as such it carries with it inherent risks. Your doctor should offer a complete assessment of your candidacy for any type of face lift, and whether you’re at risk of other complications.
