Non-Surgical Facelift and Neck Lift

You can dramatically change the tide of time with a non-surgical facelift or neck lift from Dr. Maurice Khosh, renowned New York plastic surgeon. A thread lift is a procedure that involves using temporary sutures to lift the skin. Unlike its traditional counterpart, a thread lift does not require surgery and therefore results in greatly reduced recovery time for the patient.

A more youthful appearance is achieved by pulling the skin back, resulting in lifting and tightening in the face or neck. However, a thread lift has an additional benefit that continues to help reverse the signs of aging through triggering the natural healing response. This process promotes an increase in collagen around the treated area and can significantly improve results for many patients.

Collagen plays an important role in the health and appearance of the skin. Whenever the skin is damaged, collagen is part of the wound healing process. As the main structural protein in the body, collagen is also responsible for keeping the skin voluminous, supple and strong. However, the natural production of collagen is significantly reduced with age, contributing to the development of loose skin and wrinkles.

NovaThreads for Facial Skin Tightening

Thread lift techniques are not a new innovation; however, technological advancements in the threads used have made it safer as a treatment option. NovaThreads provide a number of Polydioxanone (PDO) threads that are fully absorbed through a process known as hydrolysis. This is the same type of material used in cardiothoracic surgeries in place of permanent mesh or stitching. Nova-Mesh and the Nova-Lift are the two main thread types provided by NovaThreads.

Although the threads are eventually absorbed, the process takes between four to six months, in which time increased collagen production continues. NovaThreads is designed to allow for easier application through pre-loaded needles, making this innovation the ideal tool under the skilled hands of Dr. Maurice Khosh. At his offices, Dr. Khosh can use NovaThreads for patients who are seeking a non-surgical facelift or neck lift.

Due to Dr. Khosh’s position as one of the foremost plastic surgeons serving patients in New York and Manhattan, there are greater possibilities for rejuvenated skin with NovaThreads. For a truly revolutionary approach to rejuvenating the skin, patients are encouraged to seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon who understands the specific needs of the individual.

Safer Skin Rejuvenation

A thread lift can produce results that typically last between one to three years. Although traditional facelift surgery can rejuvenate skin for up to a decade, there are greater risks involved and recovery from the procedure is longer. Patients who see positive results from a thread lift also have the option of having additional procedures once the effects begin to wear off. Dr. Maurice Khosh is an accomplished plastic surgeon who can maximize the potential of a thread lift as a non-surgical option for addressing excess skin and wrinkles.

Using a PDO such as NovaThreads further decreases any risks associated with a thread lift. The technology is already designed to make the procedure fuss-free and safer for patients and, under the expert care of Dr. Maurice Khosh, precise injections target key areas of the face and neck for rejuvenation. Additionally, a thread lift is perfectly suited for combination with other non-surgical options such as Ultherapy.

To find out if a thread lift is the right treatment option for your needs, Dr. Khosh will invite you to his offices for a comprehensive consultation. Contact our office today to begin your journey toward achieving skin that looks and feels younger with a thread lift in New York or Manhattan.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
