Sagging skin caused by gravity as well as other factors such as heredity, weight loss , and natural aging can make people feel less confident about their face. Women seek different methods that would safely and effectively remove the years from their face by opting to undergo facelift procedures. Traditional facelift procedures involve real cosmetic surgery which is invasive and rather costly as compared to thread facelift. Thread facelift has many advantages over traditional facelift especially if what is needed to be done are just minor procedures to correct some wrinkles and lines on the face. Women ages between 30-40 prefer to have thread facelift since it can done quickly and normal life can resume within a matter of days. Because of the fast procedure involved, it is also known as “lunch face-lift” since it can only take 30 minutes to a maximum of 2 hours to undergo this procedure.
Before having a thread lift, it is advisable to consult first a duly accredited plastic surgeon who can make a careful assessment of the condition of the face. There are some cases that really need to undergo traditional facelift since the skin has sagged badly that threading cannot remedy it anymore. Thread facelift can improve minimal sagging that is apparent under the jaw, middle-face or slight pockets of bags under the eyes. If one is a candidate for thread facelift, he/she must take some antibiotics as prescribed by the doctor even before the procedure. This prevents possible infections after the procedure. Thread facelift can be done using only a local anesthetic which means that the patient can even see how it is being done.
High-grade sterilized needles are inserted in some parts of the face to make way for the thread that would be inserted. After the threads are inserted, barbs on the thread would close so that it would be in place. Doctors can use an open or closed technique depending on their style as long as it would put the threads in their proper place that would deliver good results. After the procedure, the patient can go home and perform normal non-strenuous activities after 24 hours. Indeed, thread facelifts are easy, safe and non-invasive. Look for a cosmetic surgeon now.
