Who is suitable for this procedure?
Thread lift is suitable for people who have a small degree of sagging that will need a moderate amount of tightening. In this case, this procedure is more suited to younger patients who do not need the full cosmetic surgery procedure. However, if you usually suffer from keloid scarring, you may not be so suitable for this procedure.
What is the procedure like?
This procedure is done under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort. There are two different types of threads used – barbed threads to provide lift and smooth threads that will need to be attached to the face or scalp.
These are made of different materials, and they are usually well tolerated by the body. Small punctures are made in the skin and the sutures are inserted; barbed threads just attach themselves to the underside of the skin and then lift the skin into the desired position, whereas smooth threads will be inserted into the skin before being anchored into place.

Patients may feel that the cheeks are tight for a few days. Patients are encouraged not to forcibly stretch the treated area. Vigorous massage of the cheeks or chewing are to be avoided and patients should not put pressure on the cheeks for the first two weeks after the procedure.
How long does this procedure last?
This procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that will deliver a conventional facelift-type results without the need for cutting or surgery. This will allow for a quicker recovery, which is one of the key advantage of this technique.
