Eva Mendes Revealed She Got a Thread Lift. Here’s Why Some Doctors Don’t Recommend the Procedure.

As the pandemic has canceled events and appearances and delayed filming schedules, some celebrities, including Eva Mendes, have taken advantage of the ample downtime to have work done. Taking to Instagram with a graphic photo of the treatment, the 45-year-old actress shared her experience having a mono thread lift. The post received more than 85,000 likes, but many of her followers were confused by it, unsure of what a thread lift is or why Mendes would get one.

What is a thread lift?
The nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure has gained popularity in recent years for its ability to temporarily lift the skin and subcutaneous tissue and boost collagen production and firmness. The process involves passing small, dissolvable threads beneath the skin’s surface; when appropriately positioned, they will offer a more lifted, toned appearance, especially around the jowls and and in the mid- and lower face. “Ideal candidates are patients looking for very minimal change to help lift the skin, but ‘minimal’ is the key word,” explains Dr. Deepak Raj Dugar, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California. “The results are, without a doubt, very temporary and can cause side effects such as thread extrusion, or cosmetic show of the thread, through the skin if injected inappropriately.”
