What is Thread lift?
A thread lift is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive and for people experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor facial sagging. it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach. Special threads are used during this facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place after surgery.
How is Thread lift Performed?
This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just 1 or 2 hours, often without anesthesia. During a thread facelift, the cosmetic surgeon inserts thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can approve the look of their thread lift while the surgeon works. Once the threads are knotted, they become hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that results will be virtually invisible.
Post-procedure you may experience some slight bruising and swelling, which usually settles in a few days. Recovery is generally quick, with most patients returning to work the next day or after a few days rest, although you may find that your facial movement is limited for the first week or two.
A thread lift procedure uses various different types of suture threads to help lift and tighten the skin. This process raised the outer brow area, reduced jowling along the jawline, and reduced sagging in the cheeks, naso-labial (nose to mouth) folds and the lower eye areas.
Risks and Complications
There are few potential side effects to a thread lift procedure as the treatment is not as invasive as other lifting procedures. The area treated will often be sore with some swelling, bruising or puffiness for a few days.
