About PDO Threads for Butt LiftCloseup of a woman's butt. She is in the pool wearing a string bikini bottom. her butt is full and smooth

PDO (polydiaxone) threads lifts are growing in popularity. Use of PDO threads is limited in many practices to merely lifting the skin and stimulating collagen production in the butt. Yes, the butt!

How Do PDO Threads for a Butt Lift Work?

PDO threads are made from a biodegradable polymer that dissolves in the body. They are used in two different ways:

  1. Smooth threads are inserted vertically and horizontally using a cannula. The mesh pattern of the threads serves as the foundation for new collagen production as your skin reacts to the sutures by repairing itself around them.
  2. Barbed threads are used to produce immediate and dramatic results. The threads are inserted under the skin and grip the skin underneath. When these threads are pulled, they tighten the skin from within, resulting in an instant lift.  Again, collagen production is stimulated as the skin heals itself around the threads.

These threads are strategically placed in your butt as described above to provide a smooth butt that defies gravity.

Are There Side Effects?

As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, a PDO Thread Lift poses some minor risks. The most common being infection, bruising, swelling and tenderness, while the PDO Threads, however, are safe and hypoallergenic.
