About Suture Suspension Photo: Dr. Reynolds doing a Timeless Suture Suspension Buttocks Lift
Suture Suspension is a procedure that lifts loose skin or flabby soft tissue.

Traditional lifts required a surgeon to make large, dramatic incisions in order to create results. With Suture Suspension, however, several small incisions combine with long internal sutures to contour and shape the face and body without resorting to such invasive and complex surgery.

The Reynolds Timeless Suture Suspension (TSSL) techique lifts the deep movable subcutaneous tissue by anchoring it to non-movable tissue (fascia, periosteum, bone). Employing this technique results in a more natural and youthful appearance. The Reynolds TSSL technique is ideal for lifting the face, eyebrow, and buttocks. The original 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 Instructor" -- the only certified Master in the United States--who has later gone on to modify the technique and equipment used into the TSSL technique available today.

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.
