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. Edward Ye offers a few types of Thread Lift options for both face and buttocks: those using Silhouette InstaLift 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. Edward Ye in person.

Dr. Ye excited to be one of the very first doctors in Chicago to offer the Silhouette InstaLift — a non-invasive, non-surgical facelift that reveals instant, long-lasting results that only improve over time.
