Are your face and neck giving away your age? Unfortunately, the signs of aging are so noticeable on our faces. As we age, we start losing facial fat and volume, the supporting tissues of the cheeks and jawlines weaken, and our lower face and neck start to sag. Facial Thread Lifting gently lifts sagging facial and neck skin to produce a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Facial Thread Lifting is ideal for those who are experiencing mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues. It is not an alternative to a facelift and Dr. Nazarian will let you know which would work best for you at the time of your consultation.
Thread Facelifting Procedure
During a Facial Thread Lift, Dr. Sheila Nazarian, a leading board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, inserts special absorbable, barbed threads into the soft tissue of the face and/or neck through strategic needle entry points made. A hollow needle is inserted into the skin to position the threads in place. The threads attach to the skin tissue or fat and pull back to instantly lift and smooth loose skin, reducing the appearance of sagging skin. Depending on the number of areas being treated, Facial Thread Lifting can be completed within 30 minutes to 2 hours. Because the procedure is performed under local anesthesia and patients remain conscious during the procedure, you can approve the look of thread lift as the surgeon works. The needle access points are invisible and there is no scarring.
Areas Ideal for Thread Facelift
A thread facelift procedure uses different types of PDO sutures to help lift and tighten skin on the face and neck.
Raise outer brow area
Reduce jowl and jawline
Reduce sagging cheeks
Minimize naso-labial folds (nose to mouth lines)
Key Benefits of Facial Thread Lifting
Less invasive than other face lifting procedures
No downtime associated with traditional surgical facelift
Bruising or swelling usually settles within a 3-7 days
No general anesthesia is required
Who is a good candidate for Facial Thread Lifting?
Prior to Facial Thread Lift, it is important to clearly set out your expectations with Dr. Nazarian during your consultation. While a face thread lift can deliver amazing results, it may not be the right treatment for you. There are some cases that require surgical facelift to achieve the desired results. Suitable candidates for Facial Thread Lift are men and women who are in their mid-30s to 50s and with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues.
What is the Cost?
The cost of Facial Thread Lift treatment varies depending on the skin condition and areas to be treated. The cost will be determined during your initial consultation at Nazarian Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.

What Our Clients Say About Us
Dr.Sheila Nazarian is the best plastic surgeon overall. I have never met such a nice, professsional and humble doctor like her.I had breast augmentation 5 days ago and I’m feeling great.Wow what a great experience with Dr . Nazarian. She is wonderful and very caring thru the whole process. Thanks Dr.for changing my appearance and helping me with every question I had. I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
