About Thread Lifts
Talented Las Vegas cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reuben Thaker is proud to offer PDO thread lifting as an effective alternative to surgical lifting procedures. This technique, sometimes called a lunchtime lift, utilizes absorbable sutures and a specialized technique to provide a firmer, more youthful appearance in less than an hour. Dr. Thaker can perform a thread lift on the face, breast, or buttocks for beautiful results. The procedure is relatively comfortable and allows patients to return to their daily activities as soon as we are finished. The threads used for the lift stimulate the production of collagen as they dissolve, amplifying the already stunning results of the procedure.

"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
Candidates who would be happiest with the results of a thread lifting procedure are those who wish to reduce the appearance of loose facial or body skin without surgery. These patients will also enjoy:
- A tauter appearance
- Significantly reduced sagging
- Restoration of some lost volume
- Natural-looking results
- Lasting results without the downtime of surgery
Thread lifts are considered a minor procedure, which can be performed in the comfort of our office. A marker will be used to identify the entry and exit points and local anesthesia will numb the treatment area prior to beginning the procedure. Finally, Dr. Thaker will use a fine needle to insert the thread through the skin and tissue. The threads will be gently pulled in the appropriate directions to tighten the skin. The entire procedure typically lasts less than an hour and results are almost immediate.
What to Expect
You will leave our facility with a more lifted appearance to return to your daily activities. Patients typically experience some mild swelling, light bruising, and redness, but these symptoms heal quickly. During or after your procedure, a member of our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including what types of activities to avoid and how to care for your skin as it heals. Adhering closely to these instructions can help protect your results for a long time. Be sure to attend any recommended follow-up or maintenance sessions to protect your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a thread lift cost?
The price of a thread lift depends on the extent of the procedure and which areas are being treated. During your initial consultation, Dr. Thaker will ask about your aesthetic goals so he can create a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs. After this is complete, Dr. Thaker or a member of the team will be able to provide an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs and talk to you about your payment options.
Should I receive a thread lift if I want more volume?
A thread lift is most ideal for patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles/sagging skin. Those in search of more volume in certain areas (lips or cheeks) may be better candidates for a fat transfer or an injectable dermal filler. During your consultation with Dr. Thaker, express your desire for increased volume so that he can work that need into your customized treatment plan and recommend a treatment that will complement your thread lift.
Does a thread lift leave scars?
A thread lift does not require incisions, unlike surgical lifting procedures, which means that scarring (if any) will be very minimal. As there is a fine needle used to introduce the PDO threads, very minor scarring is possible but will only occur in cases where the skin was not properly cared for post-procedure. Following the treatment, you will be given detailed aftercare instructions, which you should follow closely to reduce the possibility of scarring.
Can I combine a thread lift with other treatments?
A thread lift is commonly combined with other nonsurgical procedures in order to create enhanced results. Ask Dr. Thaker about a HydraFacial, PRP therapy, or one of our many laser treatments to amplify your results.
Does a thread lift look natural?
When performed by a trained professional, like Dr. Thaker, the results of a thread lift will be dynamic but very natural. Be sure to explain your desired results prior to your procedure so that Dr. Thaker can ensure a tailored approach to your treatment.
