Thread Lifts

A thread lift is a non-surgical facelift where temporary sutures are strategically placed below the surface of the skin. The procedure can improve lax skin and redefine fat deposits on the cheek, jawline, and neck area. At Sthetix, we use advanced state of the art suspension sutures to ensure immediate, long-term anti-ageing results. Treatments are safe, effective and carried out in our in-clinic theatre by fully trained surgeons.

Who is Suitable?

You may be a good candidate for the procedure if you’d like to achieve more youthful facial contours but aren’t quite ready for a surgical solution. A thread lift can improve age-related volume loss, tighten sagging skin, and reposition sunken fat pads. Both men and women can benefit from the procedure but should be non-smokers who are in otherwise good general health to achieve an optimal outcome.

The Procedure & Risks


Thread lift procedures are minimally-invasive and can be done in approximately 45-60 minutes depending on the number of sutures needed to achieve the desired outcome. A local anaesthetic is applied beforehand to keep you comfortable throughout. Once the treatment areas are marked and prepared, your skilled surgeon begins the lifting process. While sutures are only temporary, they are designed to stimulate long-term collagen production for enhanced results.


It’s somewhat common for patients to experience an initial inflammatory reaction with the insertion of foreign body materials. Side effects typically subside quickly but can include minor pain, redness, swelling, or in some cases bruising.

Results & Recovery


A thread lift instantly redefines facial contours for a naturally more youthful look. They also have a regenerative effect making continued improvement gradual and discreet. Long-term collagen levels are boosted allowing patients to maximize the outcome of their procedure. Thread lifts can safely and effectively be done as needed to combat onset ageing on the cheeks, jawline, and neck.


The recovery period from thread lifts can vary based on your individual procedure. While some patients are ready to resume day-to-day activities in just a few days, others prefer to wait upwards of 2-weeks before returning to social situations. Your Aesthetician will provide you with post-treatment recommendations on how you can facilitate a speedy recovery.
