Breast Lift


PDO breast thread lifts are the latest, revolutionary treatment for skin tightening, lifting, as well as contouring the face. However, at River Aesthetics, we can now use threads to produce impressive breast lifts with our bespoke RiverLIFT body treatment. Although not suitable for all, this breast thread lift treatment can offer a wonderful alternative to going under the knife.


The ground-breaking RiverLIFT is a procedure designed by Dr Charlotte and Dr Victoria, both highly experienced and respected thread lift doctors. Breast thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure, designed to lift and tighten the skin to reduce the visible signs of ageing without the downtime of surgery.

Made from Polydioxanone (PDO), the same material used for medical stitches which dissolve naturally in the body over time, the smooth sutures are inserted via needle beneath the subcutaneous layer of fat and pulled tight to instantly lift the sagging breasts. Once the threads are in place they act as a “scaffold” supporting the new structure, and your body then starts to produce new bundles of collagen around each thread which over time gives an incredible rejuvenating effect.

River Aesthetics is one of the UK’s top breast thread lifting clinics, where we empower our patients to age well by achieving beautiful, natural-looking results. Our non-surgical breast thread lifts restore youthful appearances and help regain lost confidence, book your consultation today.

Can anyone have a Breast Thread lift?

Not everyone is suitable for this procedure, breast thread lifts are only suitable for C cups and below with a certain laxity. Please also be advised that we are unable to treat anyone who has had previous breast surgery. You will receive a thorough breast examination prior to any treatment and a detailed past medical history will be taken to make sure this treatment is right for you.

How long does the treatment take?

The breast thread lift procedure takes approximately one hour, depending on the number of threads used. On average, between about 40 and 50 threads are needed for a breast uplift.

When will I see results?

It is important that we can manage your expectations of the treatment to make sure that we are able to meet them. The first effects are visible instantly, but considerable improvement appears after 2 or 3 months, following the continuous regeneration of collagen. The effect of the Breast Thread Lift can last up to 2 years.

Dr Charlotte Woodward


“Many patients after breast feeding feel their breasts have started to sag a little. We use threads to lift the tissues subtly back to where they use to be. This is an excellent treatment for patients with small breasts who just want a little uplift without the volume that implants can cause.”
