Is the thread lift procedure right for me?
Your suitability for the thread face lift procedure will be assessed during an obligation free medical consultation with your Aesthetica cosmetic surgeon.
An ideal candidate is a person (female or male) that has some initial facial aging, noted by subtle or evident loosening of the facial tissue.
This procedure or Ultherpy is often useful for patients who have previously had a face lift but have a few residual loose or droopy areas, this procedure can ‘tidy up’ these areas.l
Aesthetica offers many options for Facial Rejuvenation, including the most comprehensive range of non surgical procedures and combined therapies, visit our blog and read Facial Rejuvenation – Pauline’s story for one patient’s view and decision making process.
The Aesthetica consultation process.
An Aesthetica Doctor or qualified nurse will assess your skin condition and make recommendations on whether a facial thread lift is the most suitable procedure for you.
You may well find out that your areas of concern can be sufficiently treated using our other non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as the radio frequency non-surgical face lift or Ulthera treatments. However for patient cases that may not respond to other non-surgical skin tightening techniques the skin stitch is an effective, flexible and relatively low impact procedure.
How will I look and feel after the facial thread lift procedure?
After your suture face lift bruising may occur in some people but is not common. For most people the swelling is mild and usually lasts about ten days. During the facial suturing procedure there should be no pain as local anesthesia is used. After the thread face lift procedure there is often some pain behind the ears, so painkillers should be used. This usually settles after 24 hours.
Because only small punctures are made in the skin and there is no skin removed there is usually no scarring. The stitches reposition the skin, so there may be a slight pucker in front of the ear initially. This usually settles by itself.
How much does a thread lift cost?
Every case is different and every patient has their own specific requirements and expectations, therefore it is hard to give an exacting price for every procedure.
You are most welcome to book a free no-obligation consultation with one of our Doctors or qualified nurses where your requirements will be discussed and we can make recommendations on whether a thread lift is the most suitable procedure for you.
