Designed to be a less invasive form of facelift, a thread facelift can reduce sagging around the jaw line, cheeks, and neck more swiftly and involving reduced risk that the traditional facelift plastic surgery approach. The procedure involves the use of special threads that will discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in a lifted place after the surgery.
A contour thread facelift may involve the use of clear threads that will further minimize any signs of surgery. Apart from the benefits such as reduced risks and increased comfort, thread facelift also provides noticeable results much faster than more intensive procedures. The costs are more affordable compared to traditional surgery options.
Fantastic candidates for a thread facelift are usually people in the age group of 30 to 60, who have a relatively good skin tone. While they would experience the onset of sagging in their face and neck, they do not suffer from severely drooping facial areas or excessive loose skin that might require a more invasive facelift.
Patients who have relatively minimal facial signs of aging, and those who require very subtle enhancement or maintenance procedures, may benefit more a thread lift. The procedure is also recommended for people who want to avoid facial scarring and other potential risks and complications that may sometimes occur after more invasive surgeries.
The thread facelift procedure can be performed in just one to two hours, and will usually not necessitate the use of anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will insert thin threads into the targeted areas of the face through very small incisions. The threads are designed to attached to the skin tissue and then pulled back to gently smooth and lift the face.
The treated areas will be slightly raised almost immediately, mitigating sagging effects and providing a rejuvenated facial appearance. The patient will usually remain fully conscious during a thread facelift procedure. This allows them to review and approve the look of their thread lift even as the surgeon works.
Once the threads are knotted, they will be concealed with the skin. Any scarring that occurs will be virtually invisible.
