Sagging breasts is one of the most bothersome problems amongst females. Weight loss and pregnancy are the most common reasons. Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic treatments women seek. Several treatment options are available to patients, between surgical and non-surgical breast lifts.
With so many breast augmentation treatments to choose from, it can be hard finding the one that will work best for your desired aesthetic goals. However, if you’re looking for a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment, a breast lift with pideal threads might be your ideal treatment option.
What are Pideal(PDO) Threads?
Pideal threads, also called PDO(Polydioxanone), are medical-grade threads made of protein and thinner than hair. They stimulate collagen production and help with skin tightening. On average, PDO threads will last for 4 to 6 months before they are metabolized and absorbed by the body.
What Is Breast Lift With Pideal Threads?
It is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed under local anesthesia without the need for general anesthesia.
PDO threads raise the breast skin with the threads and give a higher, more youthful position. A breast lift can be done independently or can be part of other breast augmentation treatments.
How Do PDO Breast Lifts Work?
A PDO lift for the breasts works similarly to a PDO lift for any other body part. PDO threads are made with the same polydioxanone material used for cardiovascular surgeries. PDO threads are inserted into the skin at designated areas with a small needle, where the thread hooks into the breast skin to pull and lift the breast into a higher position.
The advantages of PDO Breast Lift
- Improve overall appearance
- TIghten breast tissue
- Lift breasts
- Have a more youthful appearance
What are the limitations of pdo breast lift?
PDO breast lift will not increase the size or volume of the breasts. If you have significant volume loss in the breast, fat transfer or breast implants should be better.
