NovaThreads EZ Neck Lift as Seen on The Doctors TV Show

Many women and men want to restore the youthful contours of their neck, but are reluctant to go through neck lift plastic surgery or liposuction procedures. These patients can be ideal candidates for NovaThreads EZ neck lift, which is a minimally invasive ‘lunchtime’ procedure.

NovaThreads EZ neck lift can help to create rejuvenated, natural looking neck and jaw line in a single in-office treatment lasting less than an hour. The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides NovaThreads neck lift to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities.

How does NovaThreads Work?

NovaThreads procedure can lift sagging areas of skin on the neck without involving plastic surgery. The procedure will instantly tighten the tissue, and at the same time, promote the natural production of collagen fibers in the deeper tissue for more sustainable results from inside out.

New collagen improves skin volume over time, and enables smoothing, lifting, and tightening of the skin for a firmer and more youthful looking neck. NovaThreads include medical grade, absorbable sutures composed of polydioxanone (PDO), which are gently inserted into the sagging areas of the neck.

The natural scaffolding of collagen created in this process allows the patient to have the neck and jaw skin firm and lifted. Although the body will safely reabsorb the threads in about four to six months, but the neck skin will continue to look youthful and fresh for up to two years.


Skin tightening with NovaThreads can be performed in nearly any area of the body for the right candidate. But the results in the neck area are matchless with this procedure. The procedure will begin with the treatment provider carefully inserting the NovaThreads needles into the targeted areas of the neck skin as a whole needle.

The needle will reach the interstitial tissue at a sub-dermal level in the neck, parallel to the top skin surface in order to create optimal effect. The provider will then slowly pull out the needle, while the PDO thread is left behind underneath the skin. The PDO suture will get gradually absorbed in the body.

The absorption process will trigger the skin’s internal repair mechanism, lead to generation of fresh collagen over this time period. As a result, the patient will achieve a subtle lift in the neck tissue, while the outer neck becomes tighter and smoother.
