A thread facelift is a convenient, less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts that are designed for people who spot early signs of aging, such as minor sagging of the face. This innovative facelift procedure can be done in just an hour or two, often without anesthesia. During a facelift, the surgeon inserts thin threads into the face through tiny incisions in the target area. These threads attach themselves to the skin tissue and then are pulled back to lift and smooth the face.
Almost immediately, the treated areas are raised slightly, which prevents sagging and gives patients a rejuvenated look. Since the patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can confirm the appearance of their thread lift during the procedure. Once the threads are knotted, they are hidden within the skin itself, and any scarring that results is virtually invisible.
