This procedure uses absorbable, barbed sutures to offer a tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face and neck. It is usually performed under local anesthesia in the office with minimal discomfort.
Who can benefit from a Thread Lift?
Thread lifting is a great therapy for the "in between" patients-those who are not ready for surgery or who just have mild drooping/sagging and the areas of concern and are not severe enough to warrant surgery. Great candidates for thread lifting are patients who have mild to moderate sagging of skin in the jowl/jaw region, the cheek, and a low position of their eyebrow as well as mild neck laxity. These are all problems that can be treated with surgery, but Thread Lifting offers an alternative to surgery that is minimally invasive and has little down time.
How long will results last after a Thread Lift?
Patients can expect results to last for 12-18 months.
Is Thread Lifting done in the operating room while asleep?
One of the biggest benefits of Thread Lifts is that they can be performed while awake, with minimal numbing medicine in the clinic. Most patients can drive themselves home and will have minimal down time.
