About PDO Thread Lifts
As we age, the effects of gravity become more prominent on our faces, causing the facial support structure to weaken and sag. If you are looking to tighten up your face without undergoing traditional facelift surgery, you may want to consider a PDO thread lift. Although PDO (polydioxanone) threads have been in the medical industry for more than 30 years, they are relatively new for cosmetic procedure use. Dermatologist Dr. Adam Bodian offers PDO thread lifts to nonsurgically lift crepey, sagging facial skin. During a thread lift, dissolvable sutures are inserted into the upper, mid, or lower face to elevate your facial appearance. PDO threads vary in length, thickness, and strength, and are available as either barbed or non-barbed. Each thread lift can be personalized based on your specific skin type and concerns. Contact Bodian Dermatology in Great Neck, NY to learn more about this noninvasive treatment.

Can A PDO Thread lift Benefit Me?
If you are seeking to improve the look of your face without dermal fillers or facelift surgery, a PDO thread lift could be a wonderful option. Thread lifts are ideal for men and women with mild to moderate sagging in the face, neck, or jowls. Whether your skin laxity is caused by aging, genetics, weight loss, or another factor, a thread lift can address your concerns with minimal recovery time. Dr. Bodian offers lifts using three different types of threads based on your specific facial tightening needs: straight, twisted, and barbed. During your consultation, Dr. Bodian will determine which type of nonsurgical facelift best meets your goals.
What Are the Benefits of A PDO Thread Lift?
Not all patients want or need invasive surgical options to obtain a lifted, restored aesthetic. For patients living in Great Neck, NY who might be enticed by the thought of solving dropping skin without getting an invasive surgery, a thread lift would be a great choice that could provide several benefits, such as:
- A procedure that is minimally invasive yet still effective
- Collagen stimulation can deliver glowing outcomes that will last
- Results that are more prolonged than other noninvasive rejuvenation solutions, including injectable dermal fillers
- Confidence in your new youthful appearance
How Are PDO Thread Lifts Done?
Once Dr. Bodian has examined your face and created your personalized treatment plan, we will schedule your PDO thread lift at our Great Neck, NY office. A nonsurgical facelift is an outpatient procedure performed at Bodian Dermatology and takes about 30 minutes for each area being treated. A popular option due to its minimal required downtime, a PDO thread lift can even be performed on your lunch break. First, we will numb the treatment area to keep you comfortable during your procedure. Next, we will insert each individual PDO thread into your soft tissue using a crosshatching technique, gently smoothing out wrinkles. Dr. Bodian specializes in producing a balanced, natural-looking cosmetic result.
After Your appointment
Once your PDO thread lift is completed, Dr. Bodian will send you home with instructions for recovery. You may see some swelling, bruising, or redness on your face, which can be treated with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers. Because a PDO thread lift is nonsurgical, it poses little risk of facial scarring or other complications. You should start to see your tightened results almost immediately and improve daily as your body begins to produce collagen. It is like your body is building a new tendon of collagen to give the skin a natural lift. Over time, you will begin to see a stunning, natural-looking contour that can last a long time.
PDO Thread Lift FAQ
How long can I expect my thread lifting results to last?
This will be based on the initial health of your skin. Usually, the results of a PDO thread lift might be seen for at least a year and a half or more. Following this, you may wish to have a subsequent procedure so you can keep up a renewed appearance. It's possible to sustain your outcomes by keeping a healthy lifestyle involving a nutrient-rich eating plan, frequent activity, very little sun exposure, and a home skin care regimen.
Does a PDO thread lift hurt?
No, the majority of patients don't experience discomfort throughout a thread lift. Prior to starting, an anesthetic cream will be applied to numb the treatment region to help you stay comfortable during the duration of your appointment. Some individuals may have minor tenderness or inflammation following the procedure, although this typically goes away within about a week.
What is the cost of a PDO thread lift?
The actual price of the PDO thread lifting procedure could fluctuate according to how many threads are needed, which will be selected according to your needs and goals. Keep in mind that a thread lift is quite a bit lower in price than surgery — so it could work as an option for a facelift surgery alternative. Our providers at Bodian Dermatology will discuss pricing information when you come for your first appointment.
