Are you interested in a minimally invasive, nonsurgical alternative to a facelift? Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery is excited to offer thread lifts. Sometimes called a lunchtime lift because of their short procedure time, thread lifts use absorbable threads (sutures) and thin, specialized needles to effectively lift the facial skin, offering a smoother, rejuvenated appearance much like that of a facelift. Thread lifts are performed at our Reston, VA facility and can help turn back the hands of time on your complexion. The threads promote the natural production of collagen so that your results become more dramatic over time. Contact our team to schedule your consultation today.
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2017
"I’ve been going to AWC, Dr. S. for 10+ years...he did my tummy tuck, liposuction and I continue to see him every 9 to 12 months for a facial refresh (Botox and filler). Dr. S is absolutely fabulous...he’s an artist!! He is my Michelangelo!!! A loyal and very happy client!Kim T."- K.T. / Yelp / Feb 04, 2021
"I’m writing to let everyone know how happy I am with the tummy tuck that Dr Byron Poindexter at Austin-Weston did for me a few months ago. This was my second tummy tuck, after having a mini-tuck done elsewhere many years ago. After having this procedure at Austin-Weston, I would never consider going to anyone else for plastic procedures. The entire experience from start to end was first class, and no details were omitted. The center is extrememly well run, and all the staff were exceptionally warm and professional. Dr. Poindexter is a sweetheart and did a fabulous job making my tummy flat, as well as restoring a more girly shape to my waistline. I had no complications at all and healed quickly. I’m a gynecologist in my 60’s and I have seen the results of lots of "work" that many of my patients have had both good and bad, and that is why I chose Dr Poindexter to do my tummy tuck. I am very pleased with the result and with the entire experience! Thank you Dr. Poindexter for your skillful care!"- D.H. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2021
"I have been in this office for few small procedures, best service nice and friendly environment, and best result."- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 21, 2021
"No Sweat - After years of botox treatments for hyperhidrosis a friend suggested I give miraDry a try. It's been 5 weeks since my treatment at Austin-Westin and I am sweating about 50% less than I was before. The initial bruising and swelling following the treatment is pretty severe but it goes away quickly and was completely resolved within about 3 weeks. I had a bit of tenderness around my underarms that persists even now but is dissipating. At this point I will likely wait about 6 months to a year before deciding on a second treatment but if I do need another I will definitely go back to Austin-Westin. The entire team at Austin-Westin, from the reception at the front desk to the nurses who did the prep and the procedure, everyone was friendly, kind and very capable."- Z. / RealSelf / Jan 18, 2021
Men or women in the Reston area who have mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, sagging, or loose skin due to lost volume may be great candidates for a thread lift. The dual effect of the lifting procedure combined with the stimulation of collagen production allows candidates to enjoy a refreshed, rested appearance comparable to a surgical facelift without the incisions, downtime, or recovery. To further amplify your results, ask one of our surgeons about adding an injectable wrinkle relaxer or filler.
As it is a nonsurgical procedure, your thread lift will typically be performed in the minor procedures area of our facility. Your skin may be numbed with topical or local anesthesia, and most patients choose to remain awake during the procedure. We do have the ability to perform the procedure under general anesthesia at an added cost. Our team will mark the entry and exit points for your lift before using a specialized needle to insert the threads through your skin. Once the threads are in place, your skin will be lifted and tightened as your surgeon pulls the threads in the necessary direction. The procedure will be completed in under an hour, and your results will be immediate. Prices vary by area.
Recovery and Results
Although you will have some redness and bruising around the entry and exit points on your face, you will enjoy immediate results that steadily improve as you recover. You can return to your daily activities as you feel able. Since your thread lift does not involve incisions, you will not experience scarring; however, you should take care of your healing skin by following all post-procedure instructions provided by our team. Bruising can last a couple of weeks. If you have chosen to combine your thread lift with other nonsurgical procedures, you may be provided with additional aftercare directions, which you will need to adhere to for optimal results. Your final outcome will last up to a year but may need an occasional touch up with an additional thread lifting procedure.
