Thread lift

What is thread lift?

This delicate cosmetic surgery involves very fine sutures being inserted into the soft facial tissue to lift and support sagging areas.

Who can apply for the procedure?

If you’re aged between 35 and 65 you may be a candidate if you have:

  • Realistic expectations of what thread lifting can achieve
  • Moderate sagging of skin in cheeks, jowls, neck, and eye areas
  • Cheek and brow sagging caused by weakened muscles
  • Effects of a previous face or neck lift that’s wearing off

Details about the treatment

thread faceliftYou’ll need to have an initial consultation with your surgeon to make sure you understand the risks and complications which include possible infection during the first six weeks. Numbness and lack of sensitivity are two rare conditions experienced, and the most unwanted complication is the movement of sutures that may need additional surgery.

Thread lift techniques and the number of threads used will vary depending on the type of thread selected. Normally only a local anaesthetic will be necessary, but you may be offered light sedation. A thick hollow needle will be used to insert the thread under the skin, starting near the cheekbone. The other end of the thread is then tied to deeper internal facial structures – the thread is then pulled upwards tightening the loose skin. The ends are sutured beneath the skin surface.

Recovery time

You won’t be able to drive after surgery and will need help at home for 24 hours. Your face may be bruised and swollen following the procedure, but this will only last a few days. You can control any pain with medication, and you’ll need to rest and sleep with your head raised to reduce any swelling. You should be able to return to work after three days.

The pros

The benefits of getting thread facelift include:

  1. A quick and effective solution for many ageing issues
  2. Achieving a youthful look without a general anaesthetic, and no scarring
  3. Rejuvenation of the skin making it appear firm and rested
  4. A more defined facial shape
  5. An affordable alternative option to a face lift

Thanks Dr. Q!

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
