How Does It Work?
Pulling the sagging tissue upwards to improve the contours of your face is the main part of the procedure. However, a thread lift can also be used to stimulate collagen and remove some fine wrinkles. This happens by placing tiny, self-absorbing sutures beneath the skin in the specific areas where you want to induce collagen growth. This can be done in areas such as the lips and cheeks.
These sutures can also be used to draw back folds and wrinkles to provide a lift. This can be an eyebrow lift, neck lift, and so on. In fact, these sutures can even be used to lift the tummy, arm flaps, breasts, and buttocks.
The procedure will be performed under a local anaesthetic, and the Pro-Nox system can be used to enhance patient comfort where needed. All in all, the procedure is not very invasive, and while you might have some slight swelling initially, there should not be any major side effects.
What are the Benefits?
One of the biggest benefits of a thread lift is the recovery time. When you have a facelift, you are going to need around 2 weeks to heal properly, and then you can start doing more rigorous activities after 4 weeks. With most thread lifts, however, the recovery time is just days. As such, not only is the procedure going to be quicker, but the recovery is going to be less of a hassle as well.
Another benefit is that the end result is more natural-looking. This means that you will be able to notice that something has been done, but it looks so natural that most likely nobody is going to know you underwent a procedure to get the results.
Once the procedure is over, your results should last for quite a while. However, this will depend on the amount of sagging when the procedure started, and the age of the patient. It’s important to remember that everyone is different, and there are a number of factors that can impact the results and how long they last. Major changes in weight could cause the results to last for less time.
