Thread Lifts

We use Aptos Revitalising Threads which are uniquely designed absorbable threads to gently move sagging tissues up and then suspend them through special techniques, to achieve a relaxed and fresh but natural appearance. Additionally thread lifting preserves and enhances natural contours of the face. Threads are used to lift brows, lift cheeks, help elevate saggy jowls and help remove double chins, or can be used as a platform for collagen rejuvenation in conjunction with Lipofilling. Like surgery, local anaesthesia and
sedation is required.


Involved downtime – One to four weeks.

About Surgical Facial Beautification at Preface


Surgical procedures, which Dr Hollenbach offers are aimed at trimming away unwanted, skin as well as tightening and lifting procedures. In this section we will also consider thread lifting. Most procedures are either day stays at a surgical day centre requiring general anaesthesia, twilight anaesthesia or sedation, or done in the Preface clinic itself.


All surgical procedures have a varying amount of down time that can be reduced using the Preface “Premium Package”.


Our “Premium Package” involves preoperative, perioperative and post operative or post procedure strategies to reduce downtime and speed up healing. Combination treatments of Dermasweep Microdermabrasion, Omnilux Lights, Enzyme Masks are used and mineral makeup can be applied to mask swelling, bruising and puffiness. We are happy to discuss these treatments further at the time of your consultation.


Preface offers Blepharoplasty, Thread Lift, Brow Lift, Cheek Lifts & Cheek Implants, Mini Facelift and Fat Transfer. Please speak to our specialized consultants for more information regarding these treatments.
