If you are considering thread face-lift surgery, it is important to understand how the procedure works, which patients are good candidates for it, what outcomes to expect and some of the risks involved.
A thread face-lift involves placing permanent sutures through the skin and underlying tissue of the face in order to produce a lifting effect. Sutures are threads that serve as anchors, and they work by depressing the skin and pulling it upwards. This creates a tightening effect that can reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
If you are considering thread face-lift surgery, there are several factors to keep in mind. First, this procedure is for patients who have mild to moderate facial sagging only. Patients seeking drastic improvement may not be satisfied with the results of a thread lift.
Secondly, it’s important to discuss your expectations with your plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with an idea of what level of improvement you can expect, as well as how long the results are likely to last.
