A thread lift is a surgical or non-surgical lifting treatment that uses strings to lift the face. The strings re-contour your face, lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance.
As a person ages, facial bones begin to recede and the facial tissues lose their support. This, combined with loss of elasticity causes the skin to begin to sag. Skin folds become more prominent around the chin, neck and jaw line. You may be interested in learning more about a thread lift whenever these changes become a concern and your plastic surgeon recognizes the opportunity for improvement. A thread lift restores your sagging skin to its earlier position, tightens the face and neck and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
You may also notice laxity of upper eyelid skin and formation of bags beneath the eyes. Eyelid surgery can be combined with a thread lift if your eyelids are of concern to you. A forehead and brow lift can also be combined with a thread lift if desired.

Recovery from a thread lift procedure is usually quick. There is little to no-downtime associated with this procedure. Most likely, you will be up and around after one or two days.
