All About Thread Facelifts

Having a thread facelift is a convenient and safer alternative to the more traditional facelift surgery. It is designed to be much less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the jawline, cheeks and the neck more quickly and with a lower risk than your conventional approach. There are threads that are designed for this facelift, they very discreetly hold the repositioned skin and facial tissue in the right place after the surgery. When doing a contour thread lift, threads that are clear are used to further minimize any traces of the surgery. When you have a thread lift done, it will usually produce noticeable results almost straight away and with a much lower risk and inconvenience than the more intensive procedures, and on top of that, a thread lifts costs are reasonable when you compare it to the cost of traditional options.

What Exactly Is a Thread Facelift?

A thread facelift is designed for those who are experiencing early signs of aging, like minor facial sagging. This new and innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just 1 to 2 hours, and often without using anesthesia. During your thread lift procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will carefully insert thin threads into your face through very small incisions that are made in the targeted area. These threads will attach to your skin tissue and then be pulled backwards in order to lift and smoothen your face. Almost immediately, the treated areas will be raised slightly, which eliminating any sagging and giving patients that fresh, rejuvenated appearance. Because tread lift patience generally remain fully conscious during the procedure, can are able to approve the look of the lift while the surgeon is busy working. Once the surgeon knots the threads, they will become hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that there may be will be virtually invisible.

Candidates for a Thread Facelift

Often, the best candidates for a thread lift are somewhere near 30 to 60 years old, with relatively good skin tone. Most of these people are starting to experience sagging in their neck or face but do not have a lot of loose skin or drooping facial areas that may need a more rigorous facelift surgery. If you are seeing relatively minimal signs of aging, having a thread lift may be a great way for you to make cosmetic enhancements while also avoiding facelift scars and other potential side effects which can sometimes occur when you’ve had a more intensive surgical procedure.
