What Is A PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical procedure used to lift and tighten saggy skin, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance. Over the years, Dr. Mariano Busso has refined his technique to create the BussoLyft, a revolutionary procedure that can be used to transform the cheeks, jowls, neck, eyebrows, nose, and even the abdomen. By introducing PDO (polydioxanone) collagen threads under the skin, Dr. Busso can reposition saggy or fatty pockets while stimulating natural collagen production, creating a lifting effect that lasts. Often named a "lunchtime lift," a thread lift typically only takes about 30 minutes, leaving you free to return to your normal activities right away. The BussoLyft is also effective for reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, making you look more refreshed overall. Schedule an appointment at our office in Miami, FL or Beverly Hills, CA to discuss if the BussoLyft is an appropriate nonsurgical solution for your desired look.

What Are the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?

Not all people desire or require invasive surgical options to attain a raised, restored appearance. For patients living in Miami, FL who are interested in tightening sagging skin without surgery, a polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift using BussoLyft technology from Dr. Busso may be an excellent solution that could allow for several perks, which include:

  • Effects that are more prolonged than other nonsurgical rejuvenation choices, including filler injections
  • Collagen generation that delivers lasting, glowing outcomes
  • Confidence in your brand-new youthful look
  • A minimally invasive yet still effective procedure

How Does A PDO Thread Lift Work?

Before we proceed with your BussoLyft procedure, a member of our staff will talk with you about what to expect during the procedure, what your results might look like, and how your treatment can be customized to help you get your ideal results. A topical anesthetic cream may be administered to desensitize the treatment areas so you can remain comfortable during your procedure. For the treatment, Dr. Busso will put the PDO threads into designated areas of your skin using a delicate needle. The stitches are carefully stretched to produce a lifted look and a younger-looking result. Fillers will also be administered into the sunken areas under the eyes to create a fuller appearance. No cuts or incisions are required with this procedure.

After your BussoLyft, you might experience temporary mild inflammation and redness. We recommend refraining from heavy exercise for the next several days. Be sure to stay away from heavy activities, and keep your head propped up for the next several days. After about one week, you will start to enjoy your rejuvenated results. The absorbable threads promote elastin and collagen growth for developing improvements during the next 12 – 18 months. Individuals typically only require a single PDO thread lift procedure to see visible outcomes but may want to get follow-up treatments over the next two years to sustain their youthful results.

Am I A Good Candidate for a BussoLyft?

The best candidates for a thread lift are usually those from ages 35 to 65 who are hoping to:

  • Get smoother skin without having invasive operations.
  • Encourage collagen generation in the skin.
  • Treat any level of sagging or wrinkles on the neck and/or face.
  • Reduce overt aging signs, including creases around the mouth, nasal area, drooping jowls, sagging skin, and fine lines around the lips.
  • Maintain more enduring outcomes when compared to wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers.

During your consultation in Miami, FL, we will determine if a BussoLyft procedure may be a good choice for you.

What Is Should I Expect Following a Thread Lift?

Following a BussoLyft, it's standard to experience a bit of temporary inflammation and redness. You should avoid strenuous activities and keep your head propped up for the next few days. After about one week, you will begin to notice your rejuvenated results. The absorbable threads promote elastin and collagen growth and develop improvements during the next 12 – 18 months. Individuals typically only require a single PDO thread lift procedure to have fantastic outcomes, but you may want to get follow-up treatments over the next year or two to sustain your youthful results.

About Us
How long do the effects of a BussoLyft last?

The results from a PDO thread lift are typically long-lasting, often lasting for about 12 to 18 months. Collagen production stimulated by the PDO threads continues to enhance the results over time. Although a single treatment is often enough for noticeable outcomes, some patients choose to have follow-up treatments every couple of years to maintain their youthful appearance.

Are there any lifestyle changes I should make after my PDO thread lift?

While the BussoLyft doesn't require significant downtime, it's advisable to avoid strenuous activities for a few days following the treatment. Keeping your head elevated, especially while sleeping, can also help minimize swelling. Dr. Busso will provide a detailed aftercare plan to ensure optimal results.

Can I combine a PDO thread lift with other treatments?

Yes, a PDO thread lift can be combined with other nonsurgical treatments for more comprehensive results. For instance, some patients opt for wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers in conjunction with their BussoLyft procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Busso can discuss your aesthetic goals and recommend a tailored treatment plan that may include multiple procedures.

Does a PDO thread lift hurt?

No, many individuals do not experience discomfort throughout a PDO thread lift. Before starting, an anesthetic cream is usually employed to numb the targeted region to help you stay comfortable throughout your session. Some people might have mild aching or inflammation following the procedure, but this generally goes away after a few days.

Can anyone get a PDO thread lift?

While many are suitable candidates, it's essential to consult with Dr. Busso before committing to a treatment plan for a BussoLyft. Individuals with skin infections, certain medical conditions, or those on specific medications may need to avoid the procedure.

What is the cost of a PDO thread lift?

The exact cost of your BussoLyft treatment may vary according to the number of threads required and will be decided based on your concerns and aims. However, a BussoLyft is significantly lower in price than a surgical procedure, so it may work well as a facelift alternative. The providers at Dr. Busso will provide pricing info during your initial appointment.
