Facial 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 natural appearance.
Thread lifts have been around for a long time. In the last few years a refinement of the treatment was made with threads that are absorbable, strong and long lasting enough for the body’s natural tissues to take over. This has resulted in an evolution in the facial thread treatment.
The treatment produces an immediate and natural lift with no downtime recovery, so patients return to professional and social life straight after the procedure.
Thread lift is suitable for both women and men. It lifts sagging areas of the face without
the need for sedation or a hospital stay.
The treatment is considered to be a minimally invasive surgical procedure, performed under local anaesthetic and takes as little as 30 to 45 minutes and produces an immediate and natural lift with no downtime recovery, so patients return to professional and social life straight after the procedure.
The thread-lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted in to the soft tissue of the face to lift and support sagging areas. It cannot offer the same results as a full face lift but is a good option for a more subtle rejuvenation.
