Thread Lift For Sagging Skin Over Face
A thread-lift, also known as feather lift surgery, is a delicate cosmetic surgery procedure to gently lift sagging facial skin to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. If gravity has started to take its toll on your face, a thread lift may be a less invasive alternative to a face lift to rejuvenate the face without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.
Suitable candidates for thread-lift surgery are normally women and men aged 35 to 65 who want a more effective and permanent facial lifting effect than fillers and Botox alone can provide, but who do not want or are not ready for a full surgical cosmetic procedure such as a face-lift or brow-lift.
If you have any of the following concerns, you may be a candidate for a thread-lift:
- Moderate sagging and laxity of the skin in the cheeks, eyebrows, eyes, jowls and neck
- Effects of a previous face-lift or neck-lift are wearing off
- Younger patients with cheek and brow sagging caused by weakened muscles (ptosis)
- Patients with realistic expectations for the outcome of their thread-lift surgery
