Thread Lift Overview
Are you interested in a minimally invasive, nonsurgical alternative to a facelift? Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery is excited to offer thread lifts. Sometimes called a lunchtime lift because of their short procedure time, thread lifts use absorbable threads (sutures) and thin, specialized needles to effectively lift the facial skin, offering a smoother, rejuvenated appearance much like that of a facelift. Thread lifts are performed at our Reston, VA facility and can help turn back the hands of time on your complexion. The threads promote the natural production of collagen so that your results become more dramatic over time. Contact our team to schedule your consultation today.
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2017
"I had an appointment two weeks ago for lip fillers with Emily Taylor and she was absolutely awesome, caring and very knowledgeable. I loved the results and will definitely go back to see her."- I.G. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2020
"Very professional and the results were better than I had even hoped. The staff was also super friendly. Best facility all around that I have visited. 10/10 would recommend and I plan to go again!"- M.L. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2020
"Recently, I had my lips injections. I can not exprese how amazing and professional they are. Emily Taylor, the nurse practitioner in the center is the one who preformed the injections. She is such a perfectionist and meticulous in her work. She takes the time to make sure the lips are as it should be. When I showed her the picture that I wanted my lips to look like, she advised me to do it on two step. I am so happy that I followed her advice. I am thinking to go there for my skin removal surgeries when I am ready to do it"- L.A. / Yelp / Jul 06, 2020

Thread Lift Ideal Candidates
Men or women in the Reston area who have mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, sagging, or loose skin due to lost volume may be great candidates for a thread lift. The dual effect of the lifting procedure combined with the stimulation of collagen production allows candidates to enjoy a refreshed, rested appearance comparable to a surgical facelift without the incisions, downtime, or recovery. To further amplify your results, ask one of our surgeons about adding an injectable wrinkle relaxer or filler.
Thread Lift Procedure Technique
As it is a nonsurgical procedure, your thread lift will typically be performed in the minor procedures area of our facility. Your skin may be numbed with topical or local anesthesia, and most patients choose to remain awake during the procedure. We do have the ability to perform the procedure under general anesthesia at an added cost. Our team will mark the entry and exit points for your lift before using a specialized needle to insert the threads through your skin. Once the threads are in place, your skin will be lifted and tightened as your surgeon pulls the threads in the necessary direction. The procedure will be completed in under an hour, and your results will be immediate. Prices vary by area.
Recovery and Results
Although you will have some redness and bruising around the entry and exit points on your face, you will enjoy immediate results that steadily improve as you recover. You can return to your daily activities as you feel able. Since your thread lift does not involve incisions, you will not experience scarring; however, you should take care of your healing skin by following all post-procedure instructions provided by our team. Bruising can last a couple of weeks. If you have chosen to combine your thread lift with other nonsurgical procedures, you may be provided with additional aftercare directions, which you will need to adhere to for optimal results. Your final outcome will last up to a year but may need an occasional touch up with an additional thread lifting procedure.
