There are many different reasons why women choose to undergo a Thread Lift
The results are generally not as dramatic as a surgical facelift, and viewed as a more subtle approach for people seeking a less “noticeable look”.
A thread lift is considerably less expensive compared to a surgical procedure, there are no incisions involved, no general anaesthesia, minimal pain, minimal downtime and recovery.
A thread lift is a low-risk way to see what a more permanent procedure may look like.
The procedure takes place with the patient lying down, skin being prepped for surgery and a doctor-administering local anaesthetic in the treating area.
Our cosmetic physician will then insert a thin needle to insert threads under the skin, during which time the patient will feel light pressure, but generally minimal pain or no pain.
The procedure can be done in between 45 minutes and an hour and Géniale doctors only use premium TGA approved threads.
To improve the longevity of the treatment, anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers may be suggested to help stabilise the lift, and this can be done at the same time as the lift.
How does it work?
The thread lift works in two ways – firstly by threading the dissolvable sutures underneath the skin. The doctor can then pull droopy skin taut (whether it be forehead, cheeks, neck or torso).
The invisible soft cones in the suture, grab the skin, grip underlying tissues, further providing anchorage as the skin is pulled tight.
Secondly, once the threads are inserted, the body creates an inflammatory response around the affected area, which stimulates collagen.

“A few months ago I was looking for a procedure that would lift my skin up and eliminate my nasal lines (which were very deep and sagging because of weight loss). At first I thought about fillers, but I didn’t want the puff effect, I wanted something more natural and that would last longer. That’s when I decided to do Thread Lift with Dr. Mike Shenouda and I’m very, very happy with the result! I noticed the difference in my skin right after the procedure and best of all, I didn’t feel any pain during the procedure or afterwards. In only 2 days I was already 100% recovered. I am very satisfied and strongly recommend this procedure, as well as Clinica Geniale and Dr Mike’s team.”
