Dr Mei-Heng Tan performs the ThreadLift procedure with tiny surgical sutures to gently lift and support sagging eyebrows, drooping cheeks and jowls, and sagging of the jawline and neck.

It is a no scar, minimally invasive, safe and effective procedure that offers subtle, natural-looking results.

Ideal candidates for a ThreadLift are women and men in their thirties through sixties with moderate drooping of the soft tissues of the brow, face and neck, who want a more dramatic and long lasting effect than fillers and Botox® or other treatments can provide, but do not want a full face lift or brow lift procedure.

The procedure is “walk in walk out”, performed under local anesthesia and takes less than 1-1½ hours to complete. The effects are immediate. Patients are able to go home soon after, and can return to work within 2-3 days.

The threads have tiny, lateral extensions that grasp on to and lift the soft tissues. The clear threads are inserted in precise locations behind the hairline, and once under the skin, open in an umbrella like fashion to form a support structure, creating a suspension effect that gently lifts and repositions sagging tissues into a more youthful position. The surrounding tissues act to hold the threads in place. Once in position, the body generates new collagen bundles that surround each thread to help maintain the lifting effect.

During the time of consultation, Dr Tan demonstrates the relative amount of lift that a threadlift procedure can achieve. The procedure can be combined with other lift enhancing techniques and does not preclude a more definitive facelift in the future.

Dr. Tan and her staff will be happy to discuss this procedure with you. Call for a private consultation or email Dr Tan with any enquiries you may have.
