During the facial aging, a series of physical and biochemical changes leads to tissue hypotrpphy, sagging and wrinkles not only at the level of the skin but also in the soft tissue structure. There has been a recent trend toward minimally invasive procedures for facial rejuvenation. This trend is keeping with a general demand toward more effective procedure with less tissue injury and less down time for the patient. Suspending thread technique is a new innovation in plastic surgery. Fifty patients underwent a threadlift procedure in combination with fat injection or filler injection to the midface, lowface, jowl and neck. We used anchoring point with deep temporal fascia in cheek and low face lift and mastoid fascia in neck lift without any incision. The procedure outcome was assessed in each case through patient interviews. All patients demonstrated improvement and youthful appearance in the midface, lowface, jowl and neck with minimal complications. Threadlift is a safe procedure with limited scarring, rapid recovery and low complication rates. The combination of the threadlift and fat injection or filler injection enables the increase of volume of mid or low face and prevents the complication with great patient satisfaction.
