Thread Lift is a procedure that involves the use of specialised suture threads to lift and tighten the skin on the face and neck. These threads are inserted through small incisions in the skin and are then anchored to the deeper tissues of the face or neck to lift and tighten the skin. The threads are made of a material that is absorbed by the body over time, so the lift is not permanent.
Thread Lift is usually performed on people experiencing sagging or drooping skin due to ageing or weight loss. It can be an alternative to a traditional facelift or neck lift, which requires more extensive surgery and a longer recovery time.
Thread Lift plastic surgery should not be performed on individuals who:
-Are pregnant or nursing.
-Have a history of keloid scars or poor healing.
-Have a history of bleeding disorders or are taking blood thinners.
-Have had previous facial surgery or trauma in the treatment area.
Have unrealistic expectations or are seeking significant facial rejuvenation.
-Have a weakened immune system or are undergoing chemotherapy.
-Have severe skin laxity or sagging.
-Have active skin infections or inflammation.
-Have unrealistic expectations or are seeking significant facial rejuvenation.
Description of Procedure
The procedure takes about an hour to perform and can be done under local anaesthesia or intravenous sedation. After the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and bruising, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days.
Overall, Thread Lift can help improve the appearance of sagging or drooping skin on the face and neck, giving patients a more youthful and refreshed appearance. However, it is essential to note that the results of the procedure are not permanent and may require touch-up treatments over time to maintain the lift.
