A thread lift is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure which helps lift sagging skin or loose skin for a younger, revitalised look. Thread lifts are also known as the lunchtime facelift, or ‘weekend lift’ as the procedure can be completed in a very short amount of time.

This simple procedure requires no incisions or stitches, meaning it leaves no scars and has very minimal recovery, allowing you to quickly return to your normal life. This lunchtime facelift technique can be successfully used for all areas of the face and neck to create a younger, fresher look without worrying about more invasive surgical procedures.

In the hands of an expert, a thread lift (or lunchtime facelift) provides an excellent solution for skin laxity around the upper-, mid-, and lower-face and neck. The lift treatment of a thread lift comes from compressing the tissue and elevating the skin simultaneously with suture implantation.

After inserting the suture, Dr Mark Attalla applies slight pressure on the treated area to reshape the surface of the skin, creating visibly lifted, smoother skin. Often, we achieve the most natural results by combining the lifting effect of the thread lift with fillers to remedy volume loss.


Here at Chelsea Cosmetics, we are thrilled to offer Thread Lifts as a simple, less-invasive way to rectify sagging skin and rejuvenate your appearance.

In the past, thread lift procedures used primitive technology to pull the skin and subcutaneous tissues in a chosen direction (or ‘vector’) to achieve the desired lift. Since then, a new thread lift procedure has been developed that adds a new dimension to traditional thread pulling, changing the concept of concept of facelift technology.

The new thread lift is a non-surgical facelift, eliminating the requirement for incisions and stitches that were necessary in the old procedure. The new procedure works in two ways—creating both strong pulling and volume redistribution effects simultaneously through the use of modern silhouette soft threads.

This technology allows us to move sagging skin and relaxed subcutaneous tissues to substitute for facial volume loss. The effect is similar to a mini-facelift, without any requirement for incisions, and leaving no scars in front of the ears. This aspect of the new thread lift also minimises the need to use fillers for remedying areas of volume loss.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

Thread lifts are performed under local anaesthesia, with a mild sedative provided thirty minutes prior to the procedure to help you relax.

Before the procedure begins, the surgeon marks the scope of concern and then injects a mixture of local anaesthetic and adrenaline into the entry points. These injections ensure the patient won’t feel the threads as they are being stitched into the skin and help to minimise post-procedure bruising.

Once the area is numb, the surgeon creates an entry point in the skin using a needle and inserts the threads. The threads are slid in opposing directions, pulling the skin to ensure the best possible effect, before the surgeon anchors the thread and finalises the procedure.

Thread Lift Common Side-Effects

The most common side-effect experienced in thread lifts is post-procedural swelling. This is a normal reaction, predominantly occurring due to the injection of fluid and local anaesthetic during the procedure. This can typically be expected to last for two days and will gradually subside over the following week.

The second most common side effect experienced with thread lifts is bruising—fortunately, this is usually minimal. If it causes concern, however, bruising can be easily treated using a vascular laser.

Another common side effect which may result from a thread lift is ‘puckering’. This term refers to small dents at the entry points of the threads; this is not a cause for alarm, and usually resolves within two weeks without any further intervention.
