What is a Body Thread Lift?

A body thread lift utilizes thread lift technology now used for non-surgical facelifts and brings that same technique to enhancing the body. Now you can lift the abdomen, butt, neck, knees and other areas without undergoing surgery. While some patients may require surgery to achieve their cosmetic goals, many can enjoy a lifted, more attractive look with a non-invasive body thread lift.

A body thread lift is the perfect option for those who would like the benefit of a tightened or lifted look that is often acquired through surgery, but without a surgical procedure. This lifting technique can be combined with other cosmetic enhancement options to give your body and skin a rejuvenating boost.

Why are Nova Threads Used for a Body Thread Lift?

Nova threads are made of a material that is naturally absorbed into your tissues over time. The threads have small barbs or hooks on them that grab on to the tissues below the skin and hold the tissues in place as they heal in a more lifted position. Nova threads are used due to their high quality and workability in body thread lifts and body contouring.

What is the Body Thread Lift Procedure?

The area to be treated will have a local anesthetic administered, and the threads will be placed within the tissues to be lifted. The Nova threads will be inserted with a needle and placed on specific points where they will be anchored to hold the tissue in place. Depending on the area being treated there will be a number of threads used for both sides of the area so that the results are balanced.

The procedure is relatively quick depending on the amount of areas you are having treated. The threads will remain in place and slowly dissolve over time as the area heals.

How Much Does a Body Thread Lift Cost?

The body thread lift, or contour thread lift typically costs in the range of $3500, although cost varies based upon the number and size of treatment areas you want enhanced and lifted.

Is There any Downtime?

There is minimal downtime associated with the procedure and generally you can expect to return to your routine as usual unless It is indicated otherwise by Dr. Shapiro. You will have to wait for the anesthetic to wear off and there may be some bruising and swelling that will develop and subside within the following week.

The benefits of a thread lift are the quick recovery time with some of the results of a surgical lift procedure. There is less swelling, bruising and downtime than when you undergo a surgical procedure.

What Other Treatments Can I Have to Enhance the Results of a Body Thread Lift?

There are many other treatments that you can have performed in conjunction with a body thread lift to enhance the results of the procedure. These treatments are also non-invasive and have minimal to no downtime associated with them. Some cosmetic enhancement procedures can aid in the healing process and the production of collagen, others will enhance the skins complexion or firmness. Such treatments could be:

  • Ultherapy to stimulate collagen production
  • Laser skin resurfacing to enhance the skins complexion
  • Microneedling or PRP injections to aid healing
