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
"went to see Emily for to get my lips filled and she did such an amazing job!!! She was so detailed and explained to me all of the things she was thinking about my lip shape and the filler she was using. She’s legit a lip artist! She was really gentle and made sure I wasn’t ever in too much pain. I didn’t even bruise at all. Not even a little bit. I needed this boost so much with all the covid weight and general tired look I’ve been having latley! I will never ever go to another person as long as Emily is doing lips! I love them and I’m so grateful!"- R.P. / Yelp / Oct 29, 2020
"BA with Dr. Poindexter & Oh So Happy! - I went to the Austin-Weston Center for a BA and had a wonderful experience! I thoroughly enjoyed working with a Patient Consultant at the start to help me make decisions regarding my aesthetic and desired results. Dr. Pointdexter was warm and professional, as well as open about all aspects of the procedure. I greatly appreciated that he personally called to check in on me the evening of my surgery. Not only was this my first plastic surgery experience, but my first time having any kind of surgery. At every step of the process, Dr. P and everyone I interacted with at Austin-Weston made sure I knew what to expect and made me feel comfortable. From consultation, to procedure, to post-op, they delivered. And most importantly, I am thrilled with my results! Dr. P is a skilled surgeon, and I highly recommend him and the Austin-Weston Center to anyone interested in plastic surgery!"- J. / RealSelf / Oct 12, 2020
"I highly recommend Emily Taylor for injections. I went in with overdone cheeks from another business. Emily identified the problem before I even mentioned it. She dissolved the filler and the results were instant. I received several complements from friends on how great I looked. My second visit was even better, botox and slight filler gave me a rested and refreshed look. You cannot go wrong with Emily. She is outstanding!"- B.H. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2020
"Love this place! The staff is amazing - from reception to the providers and Emily is PHENOMENAL! I absolutely recommend!!"- J.K. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2020
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.
