Thread Lift background information
As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces. The supporting tissue of the cheeks weakens and starts to sag, facial fat is lost, the jaw line that used to be firm and tight forms jowls at the edges of the mouth that drift down towards the chin, and the lower face and neck sags. This sagging or drooping action of the tissue is referred to by doctors as ptosis, (pronounced toe-sis).
Traditionally, this tendency for one’s face to start to go “south” would lead most people to a cosmetic surgeon in search of a facelift; however, there is now a less invasive procedure available which can lift, contour and suspend the sagging tissues of the face and neck; in those people who need only little to moderate rejuvenation.
Thread face lifting is a procedure which involves elevating different parts of the face and body using special threads without having to make surgical incisions as per the classical face lift, and is considered by some to be one of the most significant advances in the history of facial rejuvenation.
What Is a Thread Facelift?
A thread facelift is a convenient, less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts, designed for people experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor facial sagging. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one or two 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
Thread Lift may be marketed under a variety of names including, APTOS®Thread Lift, Contour Lift, Silk Lift™, Feather Lift™ etc. There are two main types of threads or sutures used: Free floating cogged or barbed threads which do not need to be suspended in order to hold the lift; and smooth or suspension threads which need to be anchored to a stable structure of the face or scalp. This procedure is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties.
Candidates for Thread Lift
The best candidates for a thread facelift are in their 30s to 60s and have relatively good skin tone. Most are beginning to experience sagging in their face or neck but do not have excessively loose skin or drooping facial areas that might require more rigorous facelift surgery. If signs of aging are relatively minimal, a thread lift may be a good way to make cosmetic enhancements while avoiding facelift scarring and other potential side effects, which sometimes occur after more intensive surgical procedures.
