Loose, saggy skin in the face and neck occur due to a number of reasons. The most common are age and weight loss. While it’s natural to develop wrinkles and fine lines over time, the visual of effects of aging can be unattractive.
If you feel that the drastic changes in your face make you look older than what you feel inside, a thread lift can be beneficial to you.
In summary, a thread lift is a facelift procedure that’s less invasive. It provides long-lasting results but without the painful surgery.
Dr. Ben Lee of Denver Aesthetic Surgery LLC offers a better, newer, and more improved technique for thread lift, in which he uses dissolvable threads called polydioxanone (PDO) to lift facial skin in areas where the signs of aging are prominent, such as in the cheeks, brows, and jawline.
As this non-surgical facelift technique does not need to separate tissue in order to rejuvenate the face, there is a marked reduction in post-operative bruising and swelling. This is definitely an advantage if you’re not ready to have a full surgical facelift procedure.
Are You A Good Candidate for a Facelift?
The best way to determine if you qualify for this “lunchtime facelift” procedure is to consult Dr. Lee. He’s a board-certified plastic surgeon who’s well-trained in facial anatomy, which allows him to recommend suitable facelift techniques for you.
In general, you may be a good candidate for thread lift if you:
- Have minimal signs of aging
As this technique only uses thread to lift sagging skin, it’s only ideal for individuals who have slight sag or droopy in the cheeks, jowls, neck or brows. If you notice some droopiness in your face and you would like to lift it a bit, you could qualify for this procedure. Normally, this procedure is perfect for men and women aged 35 to 65 years old.
- See the effects of your previous facelift or neck lift starting to wear off
A facelift provides long-lasting results. However, the effects tend to wear off with age. Therefore, a thread lift can correct any relapse you may have after a previous facelift.
- Have realistic expectations
While a thread lift procedure can lift sagging skin, it can only do so much. It’s essential that you discuss with Dr. Lee your desired results so he can create a proper course of treatment for you.
Thread lift is an effective treatment for mild to moderate signs of aging. If you feel that your face could need a little pick-me-up to look younger, consult with Dr. Lee. Book an appointment today.
