About Instant Lift
When you are unsure if you are ready for a surgical procedure like a full facelift to correct your maturing skin, our double board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, would like to offer you a consultation for an Instant Lift. Smooth wrinkles and lift the skin with a natural-looking result with this new technique of inserting absorbable sutures within the deep layers of your skin. After this minimally invasive procedure at Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX your skin will look younger without an extensive recovery period. It is also a wonderful supplementation for patients using cosmetic injectables. If you love the look your BOTOX® gives your facial appearance, we invite you to learn more about an Instant Lift. The procedure itself takes less than 45 min – 1 hour as an out-patient procedure.

"I am so happy with the results! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho - August 2019 I choose Dr.Vu Ho for a mid, lower facelift and am so very happy I did! I had visited with Dr. Vu Ho a few yrs prior but had some unforeseen circumstances, and had to wait. He patiently listened to my wishes to tighten up my jowls, and explained what he could do for me. I am so thankful he was my surgeon as I trusted him wholeheartedly!!Look at my before and after especially the side view!! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho :)"- F. / RealSelf / Feb 03, 2020
"I've been seeing Dr Vu Ho for as many years as he's been in Plano. I recently had my eyelids done (upper blepharoplasty) and I am thrilled with my results. Dr Ho listens and answers all questions. He is so skilled and also so down to earth. His surgical assistant Liz is also wonderful.. personable and caring as well as professional. Over the years I have received Botox and fillers from Dr Ho, and I have always been pleased and never had a problem. Tami and Amber at the front desk are always welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are great ambassadors for the practice. I recently had 3 Fractora treatments from Sarah and she is amazing. She is very experienced and was fun, yes, fun, to have as my aesthetician. I also had a hydra facial with her recently and had an excellent result. I hope Dr Ho never leaves Plano as I can't imagine going anywhere else for my facial "upkeep"". Thanks!"- B.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2020
"Immediate results, Dr Ho is amazing! - Dr Ho is amazing! He is honest with his evaluation and sets reasonable expectations on results. I had saggy skin under my chin and he fixed it with threads and Botox. Immediately could see the difference. His staff are super nice as well and the office is nice and clean."- N. / RealSelf / Jan 24, 2020
PDO Threading - Instant Lift Ideal Candidates
Men and women of good health may be great candidates for an Instant Lift procedure using the PDO Threading technique. If you have wrinkles, fine lines, and mild to moderate loose skin on your face and want natural-looking results without surgery, you have indicators that Instant Lift may be the right rejuvenation treatment for you.
What to Expect with PDO Threading - Instant Lift
During your scheduled appointment, we will invite you to our minor procedures room to relax comfortably in the treatment chair. Then, we will use a washable marker to mark the incision entrance and exit points on your facial skin. To keep you comfortable and pain-free during the procedure, we will inject a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, into the skin before the Instant Lift sutures are threaded into your incision points. It is important to follow all your plastic surgeon's aftercare instructions. The procedure lasts 45 min – 1 hour. In the following weeks, the threaded cones and sutures will dissolve to jump start healthy collagen production in the process.
PDO Threading - Instant Lift Anticipated Results
To get dramatic results, we can combine your Silhouette InstaLift with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as cosmetic injectable wrinkle relaxers and/or fillers, laser skin resurfacing, nonsurgical skin tightening, and more. Regardless, you will see a difference in your facial skin right away. You may also see swelling and bruising. Be diligent in your aftercare for the incision points, and call our office if you experience signs of infection, allergic reaction, or nerve injury after your appointment.
