The procedure in itself is remarkable. There is little, if any, bruising or pain or down time. Literally a lunch time lift. This could well prevent future surgical procedures Dr. Karimi is a leader and educator in this field and has trained hundreds of doctors in this technique. His new... READ MORE

I had a lot of fears about having the procedure done, but after meeting the superb staff. I decided to have the procedure.

At 60 I wanted to look younger. I chose Contour Lift with Quills. The down time very minimal and in office procedure.

I originally decided to have the contour thread lift after seeing a special about it on the Today Show and later hearing about it at a local women's conference in which a local ophthalmologist who was certified to perform the procedure gave a presentation. It sounded pretty simple and was... READ MORE

Pros-very natural looking and less invasive than a facelift; Cons-occasional prickly feeling on one suture. Why I did it: Asymmetry on right side produced a tired/sad appearance. I wanted a balanced and refreshed look without a surgical appearance. I also had a lower blepharoplasty and... READ MORE

Chose option versus traditional facelift because recommended by physician as low risk with quick recovery time. I have had complications and need them removed.

When I first had the procedure (2007), I had 8 threads; four per side. As a woman of color, my skin was not wrinkled, but I was getting those deep lines from nose to mouth and a bit of sagging. The pain and the swelling was horrendous for about two weeks; that's when I woke up to find one side... READ MORE

Had a contour brow lift 2 1/2 weeks ago. Love the look. Friends say it has taken 10 years off of my 45-year-old face! The procedure itself was done under a local and was uneventful. (I will never forget the odd crushing sound, however). The doctor sent me home with Darvocet, which was not a... READ MORE

Never again. Three years later, I am still suffering from infections and head pain. The experience itself was very painful and the result of the thread lift lasted only about a month. One of the selling points was that the doctor could go back in and re-adjust the threads as needed. When I... READ MORE

I had the contour thread lift done and I’m thrilled with the results. I went in with problems mostly with my lower face from my cheeks down to my neck. In total I was having six areas (three on each side) corrected with the contour threads. My doctor is a certified plastic surgeon so I... READ MORE

I got contour threads for the same reason everyone else does – because it’s marketed as a low-priced, non-surgical alternative to a facelift. In fact, I think it’s aimed at the not-so-elderly crowd of 50s-somethings like me too – people whose faces aren’t quite bad... READ MORE

I'm 40 years old and had a cheek and brow contour thread lift on 9/1/06. I am having a very long recovery period. It is now 16 days later and I have bad puckering in 3 of the 4 areas, swelling in all areas, lines show where the threading was placed (I have "stripes" on my cheeks), numbing and... READ MORE
