At Rejuvalife Vitality Institute, Dr. Berger, offers a wide range of non-surgical facelift and body contouring solutions to reverse the signs of aging and help you look as young as you feel. If you would like to restore a more youthful appearance, but prefer to avoid extensive plastic surgery such as a traditional facelift, then a Thread Lift, Suture Lift, or Silhouette Thread procedure may be the right option for you.
What is A Thread lift?
A thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive facelift and/or body contouring procedure that uses special suture threads to “lift up” sagging skin on the neck and face, buttocks, arms and other areas. The procedure is less time-consuming than a traditional facelift or buttlift, and there is virtually little recovery or downtime. The end result is a more refreshed, relaxed, natural and youthful appearance.
Dr. Berger offers a few types of Thread Lift options for both face and buttocks: those using our Silhouette Thread in Los Angeles and those using NovaThreads. Each technique and product offers unique advantages, so the best way to determine if which of these great procedures is right for you is to speak with Dr. Andre Berger in person. Please call 310.856.9173 today to schedule a consultation at our Beverly Hills office.

A Pioneer in Thread Lift Procedures
Dr. Andre Berger is a pioneer in the field of Thread Lifts. He was among the first to adopt the thread lift in Los Angeles and in California. Due to this, he has a well-earned reputation as an innovator and educator to his fellow cosmetic surgeons. Because Dr. Berger always strives for the absolute best for his patients, he offers the new Novathread Lift and the Silhouette InstaLift because they offer a great new way to achieve dramatic (but natural looking) results.
When focusing on the latest techniques and technologies, Dr. Berger is able to bring over 13 years of Thread Lift experience to help patients get the best results possible. Because of that recognized experience and expertise, Dr. Berger is a physician trainer in many Thread Lift techniques and products.
Despite the fact that they are minimally invasive, Thread Lift procedures can be quite delicate. That’s why you want to make sure to a steady, experienced, and expert cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Berger during your procedure.
improved Thread Lift options available
The Silhouette InstaLift is used to lift underlying tissue. Where procedures such as dermal filler injections or laser rejuvenation are used primarily to treat shallow signs of aging, Silhouette InstaLift is used to create lift at deeper levels.
Sometimes known by the name Silhouette Lift or Soft, Silhouette InstaLift is typically used around the cheeks and jawline in order to provide structure and youthful orientation to the face. As we age, the skin in the cheeks tends to droop, wrinkle, and sag. Silhouette InstaLift is designed to mitigate many of those signs of aging.
The Silhouette InstaLift procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The InstaLift sutures are inserted into the skin (the target depth is roughly 5mm). Once those sutures are in place, Dr. Berger can compress and “lift” the skin thanks to the bi-directional cones located along the suture.
Silhouette InstaLift threads encourage the body’s production of collagen, giving patients a one-two punch of rejuvenation: the mechanical “lift” from the suture, and the restorative powers of collagen.
Am I a Thread Lift Candidate?
The best Silhouette InstaLift candidates are in good physical condition and have normal skin thickness. If you had a prior surgical facelift and are currently experiencing sagging skin, you may be an ideal candidate.
This procedure is also an excellent option for younger men and women who would like to delay the signs of aging or achieve subtle rejuvenation results in the brow, cheek, jowls, or neck.
In general, our Silhouette InstaLift and Thread/Suture Lift patients have the following characteristics:
- Sagging, old-looking skin around the face or jawline
- Loss of volume or structure in the face
- A desire to avoid invasive surgery, either due to medical reasons or personal preference
- A desire to avoid general anesthesia
- Realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish
Because Silhouette InstaLift procedures can be used in various places on the body, each patient requires an individualized consultation with Dr. Berger, during which we will discuss the best way to achieve your results. If you are interested in a Butt Thread Lift procedure, please visit that procedure page to get more information.
The Thread Lift Procedure
In general, our thread lift procedures are an in-office procedure taking about 60 – 90 minutes. The patient will be given a local anesthetic and will likely not feel any discomfort or pain. Patient comfort is a paramount concern for us, so we do everything possible to ensure that patients are well taken care of.
Dr. Berger will then determine the best sites to insert the “thread” in order to achieve the desired final result. Next, Dr. Berger will begin the process of inserting the threads. The specifics of this will depend on the desired final result and the Thread Lift product employed (such as NovaThreads or Silhouette InstaLift).
This process is repeated several times in the targeted area, in order to create the desired shape and lift, again varying due to the Thread Lift product employed. In general, the entire process takes less than 30 minutes, allowing patients to resume their normal activities in short order.
Recovery and Results
Patients who undergo a the Silhouette InstaLift are usually able to resume normal activities quite quickly. There may be some bruising or swelling after the procedure, but this should subside within 1-5 days.
Some Thread Lift results will be noticeable nearly instantly. Our Los Angeles InstaLift patients consistently remark on how the new volume and structure make them look younger and feel more confident. A Thread Lift facial rejuvenation procedure will make the patient look more youthful and rejuvenated.
Thread Butt Lift
Rejuvalife Vitality Institute also offers thread lift procedures designed to augment the shape of the buttocks. These Thread Butt Lift procedures follow the same basic steps as Thread Lift for the face. The goal of a Thread Butt Lift is to lift and support the buttocks and increase the roundness to provide noticeable “lift” to the rear end in order to improve the overall profile. Learn more about our other procedures for the buttocks such as the Brazilian Buttlift or Sculptra Butt lift procedures done by Dr. Berger.
Thread Butt Lift procedures can be accompanied by Sculptra Butt Lift injections or a Brazilian Buttlift in order to provide the best results possible. The injected threads work to create and reinforce structures within the butt, increasing the size and volume where desired. The results can last for a significant amount of time. If you have questions about achieving your desired butt shape and size with a Thread Lift procedure, contact Dr. Berger to schedule a consultation.
