Suture Suspension @ CHP

Suture Suspension Lift Defined

Suture Suspension Lift (SSL) is, in its simplest terms, a procedure that lifts loose skin or flabby soft tissue.

Where traditional lifts required a surgeon to make large, dramatic incisions in order to create results, the SSL experience is quite the opposite. We combine several small incisions with long internal sutures to contour and shape the face and body without resorting to such invasive and complex surgery. In fact, it's so minimally-invasive, the procedure is done with only local anesthetic meaning no IV sedation or general anesthesia. You'll be wide-awake and comfortable during the entire procedure.

The Reynolds Timeless Suture Suspension Lift Technique - In Depth

Image: Dr. Reynolds prepares to perform a Suture Suspension butt lift at Centers for Health Promotion in Ft. Lauderdale, FLThe Reynolds Timeless Suture Suspension Lift (TSSL) techique lifts the deep moveable subcutaneous tissue by anchoring it to non-movebale tissue (fascia which covers the muscle, periosteum which covers the bone, or the bone itself). Employing this technique results in a more natural and youthful appearance. The Reynold TSSL technique is ideal for lifting the face, eyebrow, and buttocks. The technique was mastered and taught by Dr. Nikolay P. Serdev, MD, PhD., of Sophia, Bulgaria who in tern trained and bestowed upon Dr. Reynolds the title of "Master Trainer" -- the only certified "Master" in the United States--who has later gone on to refine and enhance the technique and equipment used.

This procedure involves the use of custom FDA-approved, non-absorbable braided nylon(polyamide) suture with a special coating. It was manufactured specifically for Dr. Reynolds by DemeTech - a US-based manufacturer that has received Presidential honors.

This technique is significantly better than typical forms of lifting which are superficial and generally do not last nearly as long. These sutures are by far superior to other sutures evaluated by Dr. Reynolds in performing these lifting procedures, which were found to provide results that do not last nealry as long. These lifts go by the names of "Curl Lift", "Coffee Break Lift", "Contour Thread Lift", "Feather Lift", etc. These approaches appear similar but simply do not compare to the results of the TSSL Technique. As with all polyamide sutures (including the ones used by Dr. Serdev), these are permanent (non-absorbable) sutures.
