Thread lift is a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift that may be appropriate in cases of mild to moderate sagging of the facial tissue. This works by using specially designed threads to offer a subtle lift to sagging skin on your face and neck.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
This procedure requires no surgery, which therefore means no surgical scars will be present. It can be done under local anaesthetic in approximately 30 minutes with immediate results. The thread lift can be used for facial contour, jaw, cheeks and eyebrows.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
It is anticipated that you should continue to see results for approximately 18 months. If you are wanting a longer lasting result or you have moderate to severe sagging you may be a good candidate for a mini facelift.
WHAT ARE SOME ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS?
Alternative forms of non-surgical and surgical management consist of mini facelift, Nd:YAG Laser, full-face CO2 Laser, or chemical peels. Risks and potential complications are associated with alternative forms of treatment. There is also the option to have no treatment.
RISKS OF THREAD LIFT
Every surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated with them. In addition, every procedure has limitations. An individual’s choice to undergo a surgical procedure is based on the comparison of the risk to potential benefit. Although the majority of patients do not experience complications, you should discuss each of these with Dr Ali Hussain to make sure you understand the risks, potential complications, and consequences of thread lift.
