Many women and men are worried about the appearance of aging signs on the face, but are reluctant to choose facelift plastic surgery because of the costs, downtime, and risks involved in it. Such people may consider a thread facelift, which offers a minimally invasive alternative to achieve facial rejuvenation and enhance their youthful appearance.
MBody is a state of the art practice led by board certified plastic surgeons providing innovative and proven procedures such as thread lift. Patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive thread facelift at MBody.
A thread facelift can mitigate the sagging appearance of the skin around the jaw line, neck and cheeks in a less invasive manner. The procedure involves minimal risk of complications and can be performed much faster than a traditional facelift plastic surgery. The surgeon will make use of special threads to discreetly hold together repositioned skin and facial tissue in a lifted position.
Any signs of surgery are further minimized because of the use of clear threads in a contour thread facelift. In addition to its advantages such as greater comfort and minimal risk, a thread facelift also delivers significantly noticeable results in a shorter period than more invasive surgeries. The costs are also more affordable compared to a conventional facelift.
A thread facelift is typically well-suited for people in the age group of 30 to 60, who still have a reasonable degree of skin elasticity in the face. The candidate may be bothered by the onset of facial sagging and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but they do not suffer from excessively loose skin or significantly drooping facial areas that may require a more invasive correction.
Many people want to delay the onset of aging or just need a subtle enhancement or a maintenance procedure for the face. These candidates can benefit more from a thread facelift. If an individual wants to avoid post-surgical facial scars and other common risks and complications associated with a surgery, they may also be ideally suited for a thread facelift.
A thread facelift can be performed as an outpatient procedure in about one to two hours, and will usually not require anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will insert thin threads into the affected areas of the face through tiny incisions. Once the threads get attached to the skin tissue, they will be gently pulled back to provide a lift to the face and smooth out the skin.
Sagging effects will be reduced almost immediately and the treated parts of the face will reveal a lifted appearance. During the entire procedure, the patient will usually be full conscious. This will enable them to review and approve the renewed facial appearance even as the surgeon works.
The surgeon will conceal the thread knots within the skin. Any potential scarring will be virtually invisible from outside. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for a thread facelift.
