If you’re not quite ready for a facelift but are starting to see the effects of gravity on your skin, a thread lift may be just the right procedure for you. A thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can help to tighten and lift sagging skin on the face and neck. It’s often used as an alternative to surgery or more invasive procedures such as dermal fillers.
During a thread lift, thin threads made of polydioxanone or polylactic acid are inserted into the skin using a needle. The threads are then pulled tight and anchored to the nearby tissue to lift and support sagging skin. The threads remain in place and dissolve over time, leaving behind new collagen that further supports the lifted skin.
Thread lift can be used to treat saggy skin on the face, neck, arms, breasts, and buttocks. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting. It takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. Recovery time is usually short, with most people able to return to their normal activities within a few days. There may be some bruising and swelling after the procedure, but this should resolve within a week or two. Results from a thread lift can last for up to 2 years.
If you are considering a thread lift, it is important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. During your consultation, be sure to ask about the doctor’s training and experience with thread lifts. You should also ask the doctor about the type of threads they use for the procedure. There are different types of threads that can be used for a thread lift, and your doctor will be able to recommend the best type for you based on your individual needs.
