About the process
Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure used to lift or balance out sagging or asymmetric eyebrows, to lift sagging cheeks, to lift mid and lower face and neck soft tissue, and to smooth aging skin.
The Thread Lift Advantage
A thread face lift is a relatively new and less invasive alternative to a traditional surgical face lift. The threads used are actually specially made sutures.
The thread lift has been widely publicized as lunch hour face lift or weekend face lift procedure. A thread lift is minimally invasive and you have a much shorter recovery time than with a traditional surgical face lift.
What is the Thread Lift Procedure
The key elements in a thread face lift are the special suture-like threads. These threads have barbs or cogs along their length. In a thread lift, a cosmetic surgeon uses a hollow needle to insert the thread into your face just under the skin. The hollow needle is inserted through tiny incisions. The surgeon then gently pulls up on the thread and the barbs catch the tissue, pulling the skin of the face into a more pleasing position. The thread is then tied off and the ends are buried under the skin. As your face heals, it forms collagen around the thread, which helps support the skin in its new position.
A thread lift can be performed in a doctor’s surgical clinic. You will receive injections of local anesthetic around the area of the incisions. After anesthesia is applied and the incisions are made, the surgeon threads the areas to be smoothened out. Once the barbed sutures are in place, the surgeon will adjust the threads and lift your skin from below the surface.
You will be awake the whole time during your thread lift procedure and you can even watch what your surgeon is doing in a mirror so that you get the amount of lift you want. Once your final look has been achieved, the surgeon ties off the threads to anchor them in place. A Contour Thread Lift typically takes between thirty to sixty minutes to be completed.
