Austin, Texas, May 2007 – Dr. Michael Escobedo is pleased to offer the Contour ThreadliftTM using patented Contour ThreadsTM, the first non-absorbable barbed sutures cleared for marketing by the FDA. This is an innovative minimally invasive technique that can achieve a lasting and more natural facelift-like effect.

“Busy high-profile clients appreciate the results achieved using the new Contour ThreadsTM. Each client offers a new challenge. Some clients require subtle enhancements while others benefit from more advanced skills,” comments Dr. Escobedo.

“One of my favorite techniques involves the repositioning of the cheek fat pad. Over time, the fat pad falls from a position under the eye to the area close to the mouth. Using a very ingenious technique and a Contour Thread, I reposition the fat pad to its original location virtually eliminating up to ten years from a clients appearance. The Contour ThreadliftTM, like any medical device, produces extraordinary results when used by an expert with an eye for beauty and art.”
