Is a Thread Lift a Good Nonsurgical Treatment for Sagging Jowls?

Drooping jowls might be endearing on your bulldog, but when it comes to your own appearance, they can be less charming. If you’re bothered by sagging jowls but not quite ready for surgical intervention, a Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift could be the non-surgical solution you’ve been seeking.

At Yco Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mario Yco, MD, a skilled surgeon, offers PDO thread lifts to rejuvenate your facial aesthetics without the associated risks of surgery. Dr. Yco can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look, allowing you to defer or bypass more invasive procedures like a surgical facelift.

Key Points About PDO Thread Lifts:

A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure where Dr. Yco inserts durable threads containing small barbs beneath your skin.

These barbs anchor into place, enabling Dr. Yco to lift and tighten your skin, reducing the appearance of sagging jowls.

The barbs not only anchor the skin but also stimulate a healing response, prompting the production of more collagen. This collagen enhances skin smoothness and flexibility.

PDO threads eventually dissolve under your skin without requiring removal.

When to Consider a PDO Thread Lift:

Genetics and the natural aging process can contribute to the formation of jowls on either side of your mouth as your skin loses elasticity and facial fat diminishes.

If you’re ready to address sagging jowls, Dr. Yco conducts comprehensive skin evaluations to determine if a PDO thread lift is the appropriate solution.

Dr. Yco tailors the PDO thread lift plan to your specific cosmetic goals and overall skin health, prioritizing natural-looking and long-lasting results.

Reliable, Natural-Looking Results:

PDO thread lifts offer immediate results by instantly lifting your skin to address sagging concerns.

Although the threads dissolve within 4-6 months, the increased collagen growth around them ensures longer-lasting results, maintaining the lifted position for up to a year or more.

The additional collagen contributes to a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

PDO thread lifts require no downtime, allowing you to resume normal activities after treatment while your body heals itself.

Managing Expectations:

While PDO thread lifts don’t provide surgical-like results, they do enhance your appearance. It’s advisable to have realistic expectations, and a consultation with Dr. Yco can help determine if this procedure is right for you.
