Because breast augmentation is one of the most common types of cosmetic treatments women seek, there are several different treatment options available to patients. Between surgical and non-surgical treatments, it can be difficult to select the treatment that is the best fit for your exact needs. At ShineMD Medspa & Liposuction Center in Houston, TX, we are happy to help you find the breast augmentation treatment that is right for you, such as a breast lift with pideal threads.
What Is Breast Lift With Pideal Threads?
A breast lift using threads is any type of breast augmentation treatment that lifts the skin and tissue of the breast into a higher, more youthful position. Lifts can be done independently or can be part of other breast augmentation treatments, such as enhancing or reducing the size of breasts. This particular lift is performed with pideal threads, also known as PDO threads. PDO lifts are minimally invasive and nonsurgical.
How Do PDO Breast Lifts Work?
A PDO lift for the breasts works similarly to a PDO lift for any other part of the body. PDO threads are made with the same polydioxanone material that is used for cardiovascular surgeries. Threads are inserted into the skin at designated areas with a small needle, where the thread hooks into the tissue to pull and lift the tissue into a higher position. PDO threads can lift the tissue of breasts to contour breasts into a more ideal shape.
Other Frequently Asked Questions
Are PDO Threads Safe?
PDO threads are very safe. PDO threads are made out of polydioxanone, which are absorbed by the body over time. Polydioxanone has a very low risk of allergic reaction as it is compatible with the human body. PDO threads are approved by the FDA and are cleared for cosmetic use to lift skin and tissue.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results for PDO threads last the same amount of time on virtually all areas of the body where they are used. On average, PDO threads will last for 4 to 6 months before they are metabolized and absorbed by the body. Some effects of the treatment may linger for several more weeks.
Will You Need Multiple Treatments?
If you want to continue enjoying the results of the treatment, you will need to have regularly scheduled appointments to maintain treatment effects. For the majority of patients, we recommend having regularly scheduled appointments at least twice a year for continued lift benefits.
Can This Treatment Be Combined?
Because this is a non-surgical treatment, it can be combined with many other body contouring treatments. This treatment is commonly combined with treatments such as:
PDO Thread Lifts Elsewhere
PDO thread lifts can be done in most areas of the body, particularly areas that are experiencing loose skin or skin laxity. Common areas of treatment with PDO thread lifts include the jowls, the chin, and the neck. Many patients opt to combine a lift for the breasts with lifts on other areas of the body for a more comprehensive result.
This treatment is also compatible with some breast augmentation. For example, many women use a PDO breast lift with threads after removing breast implants to maintain the same lifting effect. This treatment may also be compatible with treatments that alter or improve the shape of the breast and the nipple.
Energy-based treatments that contour the body, particularly those that reduce unwanted fat and tighten skin, are compatible with this treatment. Energy-based body contouring treatments can dramatically improve your overall appearance by tightening skin, smoothing the appearance of cellulite, toning muscles, removing unwanted fat, and much more.
Energy-based treatments can also include laser skin resurfacing treatments, such as those that are used to improve the superficial appearance of skin. These treatments can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone and texture, diminish scarring, and remove dark spots, sun damage, and other blemishes from the skin surface. Many of these treatments can be used on both the face and the body.

Are You a Good Candidate?
