What is A PDO Chin Lift?
Thread lifts are a safe, convenient alternative to cosmetic surgery procedures, such as surgical facelifts and treatments like liposuction in Chicago. Chin threading, or PDO chin thread lifts, specifically help tighten the skin around the chin area to create a firmer, more defined facial appearance.
If you want to look younger, eliminate sagging skin, and contour your chin shape without surgery or scarring, the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute offers thread lifts in Chicago, IL and the surrounding suburbs.

How PDO Thread Lifts Work on the Chin
One of the most common signs of aging is the slow evolution of a “double chin,” jowls, and other issues associated with sagging skin around the jaw and chin area. A PDO thread lift tightens the skin and underlying facial tissues, lifting loose skin into a higher position, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulating collagen production.
PDO threads for double chins, jowls, soft jawlines, etc. produce immediate results through non-invasive techniques. PDO threads are thin, medical grade sutures that are inserted beneath the skin and dissolve over time, so there is no need to have them removed.
PDO threads are barbed, and while there are many different types, they all work in similar ways to create the same end results The barbs, or cones, hook onto underlying tissues and lift them, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, lost volume, and restoring definition to the face.
How Long Do Thread Lifts Last?
PDO threads for chin contouring can create results that last for about 1 year, and up to 2 years in some patients. The PDO threads remain beneath the skin for 6-10 months, but various biological factors within each patient’s body will alter how quickly or slowly the threads dissolve.
What are PDO Threads Made Of?
PDO threads are made of an absorbable polydioxanone material. They have been used in surgeries throughout various medical fields for many years. Over a period of months, they are slowly broken down by the body, but they also stimulate natural collagen production, so the results of a chin lift last even months after the threads are completely dissolved.
Thread placement will determine the results of any thread lift procedure. PDO threads under the chin can lift and tighten loose skin that makes a patient look older, rejuvenating their whole appearance. Threading for a double chin can add youthful borders to the face, thinning and sculpting the area.
With a thread lift, your cosmetic goals can be easily achieved through proper thread placement, utilizing the appropriate amount of threads, and the correct combination of various types of threads. After discussing your vision with one of our clinicians, the threads will be placed accordingly to ensure you are happy with the final results.
Who is A Good Candidate?
Men and women who want to sharpen a rounded chin, get rid of a double chin, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, improve lost volume and elasticity, and address other signs of aging without surgery are ideal candidates for chin threading. A PDO chin lift will enhance a patient’s features, create a more youthful appearance, and contour the face.
