Absorbable Yarns

Absorbable yarns – Definition and methods

The absorbable threads are sutures, which are placed under the skin in the form of injections.

The absorbable threads, is a non-surgical method of improving the quality of the skin and also lifting the face and the neck. They have come to replace the old non-absorbable yarns, which had many complications.

The procedure is extremely simple and safe. Threads of biodegradable material (the same material used in surgical sutures) are placed into the deep layers of the skin.

Absorbable yarns – Procedure

There are two ways the threads can be placed:

  • Simple threads with a mesh pattern if we are aiming to improve the quality of the skin.
  • Lifting threads for tissue tightening for the face and body.


The procedure is painless, lasts for 30-40 minutes and takes place in the doctor’s clinic. The results are immediate and last from 4 to18 months. The duration of the result depends on the structure of the person’s face, the number of threads to be placed, and the technique. The ease and safety of the application, the physical effect and the low cost of the procedure make these minimally invasive treatments widespread and popular. Lifting threads are perfectly combined with other non-invasive face therapies.

General Complications after surgery

Complications in plastic surgery operations are not common but it is necessary to be aware of them at the first appointment.

  • Hematoma: A hematoma is the accumulation of blood in the wound.
  • Inflammation: To prevent inflammation, antibiotics are administered during surgery.
  • Poor wound healing: If the incision in the operated site is more prominent than expected, it can be corrected 6 months to a year after surgery with local anesthesia. In some cases, the appearance of keloids is possible where specific treatment is needed.
  • Skin necrosis: It is more likely in heavy smokers.
  • Pulmonary embolism and thrombosis.
