Thread lifting is a fast and effective face lifting technique that aims to lift and rejuvenate your face. With the advancement of today’s plastic surgery procedures, face lifting no longer requires you to go through a surgery; at least surgery is not the only option available now. Thread lift is perfect for people who do not have the time to spare for a full traditional facelift surgery, but still want a more youthful face. It is also great for a temporary quick fix for important occasions such as weddings and parties that leaves you with no time for a proper facelift—all achieved within a couple of hours and the results can last from a few months up to a year!
Apart from the use of Botox, to relax hyperactive muscles or dermal fillers which fills up lost volume over the ages, there are also skin tightening lasers and radio-frequency treatments to fight the drooping of the skin, reversing
effects of gravity and collagen degradation.
LUNCHTIME FACE LIFT
Thread lift is also widely known as the “lunchtime face lift” as it can be performed in less than an hour with very little pain and almost no downtime. It has an instantaneous effect, and popular because within your lunch hour you will be able to look more youthful. When compared to Botox or dermal fillers, it has a more lasting effect. Thread lifting provides a more subtle change, allowing people to have a refreshed look without long scars and downtime.
WHAT TYPE OF THREAD LIFT CAN I GO FOR?
Thread lifting can be done on the brows, laugh lines, cheeks, and jaw. Seeking professional help from an experienced doctor will allow for a more accurate and precise pre-planning and application of anaesthesia.
During the procedure, a thread with cones is inserted under the skin in a way that helps the skin be lifted. Much like suspension cables, they are designed to hold up the skin in place, and provide a supportive structure that defies the effects of gravity and aging. But before that, markings are made to determine the proper entry point, direction, and exit point. This is why the plastic surgeon’s training and experience is important as it determines how the final result will turn out.
A procedure with such benefits is not going to affect your daily life much, allowing lots of flexibility and perhaps helps in your decision making when considering getting one.
WHAT SHOULD I TAKE NOTE OF AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
The procedure is generally very safe, with the only few side effects such as slight bruising, aching, and slight swelling in affected area. These are normally resolved within the week and are not too much of a concern. Other complications include infection, nerve injuries, extrusion of the thread, and visibility of the thread under very thin skin (rare but possible). The incisions made for the entry and exit points are tiny and heal without unsightly stitches.
