tissue thins because the collagen and elastin fibers break
down. The resulting changes are seen as sagging, deep creases,

In general, the best candidates for a Contour ThreadLift include
both women and men in their thirties to their sixties who
want a more dramatic and long lasting effect than fillers

A Contour ThreadLift with patented
Contour Threads is a safe and effective procedure that offers
subtle, natural-looking results. This technique allows the
physician to produce a relaxed, refreshed appearance while
preserving and enhancing the natural contours of your face.
Contour ThreadLift does not replace a conventional facelift;
rather it offers patients an innovative, minimally invasive
approach to achieving facelift-like results.
"A Contour ThreadLift provides
an ideal, scar-free solution to gently lift the patient's
own tissue without the incisions and trauma of traditional
face, brow or neck lift surgery," says Contour Threads Medical
Director, plastic surgeon Dr. Greg Ruff.
A consultation with a physician
who has been fully trained in the Contour ThreadLift technique
is your first step. During your consultation, the physician
will evaluate you goals and specific anatomical considerations
including skin quality, degree of sagging underlying bone
structure, and where you desire a lifting effect. The more
Contour Threads used at one time, the greater the lift you
can achieve. To ensure a high level of safety and accuracy,
all physicians must complete a comprehensive training course
on the Contour ThreadLift surgical technique before using
