The Thread Lift face lift elevates and lifts sagging facial tissue back to a more youthful position without any cutting. The forehead, midface (cheeks and jowls), and neck can be individually or simultaneously treated using the thread lifting technique.
As the skin begins to age, it loses it’s structure, elasticity, and underlying support. As a result, it begins to sag. The geometric outline of the face changes from an upside down triangle to a rectangle, and sagging, deep folds, wrinkles, and creases become apparent. The Thread Lift face lift technique shifts sagging tissue in an upward direction to restore the natural shape and contours of the youthful face producing a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
Contour Threads work by gently hooking the tissue to be lifted. They are inserted as an outpatient under local anesthesia, and the tissue to be lifted is pulled taught. The amount of lifting is exaggerated immediately after the procedure and settles over time. There may also be bruising afterward. Because of the exaggerated appearance of the lift and bruising immediately afterward, patients may feel self conscious about their appearance for 1 – 3 weeks afterward depending on the amount of lifting performed.
The cost of the Contour Thread Lift face lift varies depending on the number of areas treated. Patients interested in learning more about the Thread Lift face lift may make an appointment for a consultation.
