A thread lift is a delicate cosmetic procedure that provides support to soft facial tissue and gently lifts sagging facial skin.
It is an excellent preventative treatment to help minimize facial sagging from mid-thirties onwards.
Sutures containing tiny unidirectional barbs or cones are gently placed under the skin using thin needles. Facial skin is then carefully pulled (massaged) upwards allowing the barbs/ cones to grab it from underneath at a higher level. T
This creates a lifting vector and provides anchor-like support to facial structures. Any exposed threads are then trimmed off using scissors.
Dr Ehsan Jadoon has been the national trainer for Promitialia® Threads and has successfully performed hundreds of thread lifting procedures using Silhouette Soft® & Promoitalia® threads.
We routinely perform this procedure under local anaesthesia while the patient is awake. We also offer this procedure under Twilight Sedation in an accredited Day Hospital in Subiaco if the patient prefers to be asleep during the surgery (Additional costs are associated).
Thread lifting was introduced several decades ago in Europe using smooth-surfaced sutures made of non-absorbent synthetic materials. These threads could easily slip and were not able to hold on to the skin properly resulting in subclinical outcomes.
Also, the doctors performing earlier procedures did not have the experience in the optimum patient selection. It took them several years to gain the necessary knowledge to iron out the inherent flaws and potential complications associated with this technique.
It is now clinically established that thread lift is not an alternative to a surgical facelift. It is, however, an excellent facial rejuvenation procedure to prevent facial sagging as a preventative treatment when performed by an experienced doctor. It can also help lift the sagging facial contours when combined with facial volumizing procedures such as dermal fillers.
It is imperative to choose the right doctor when it comes to Thread Lift. In inexperienced hands, Thread lift often results in suboptimal results and adverse clinical outcomes.
Thread Lift procedure involves no cutting of the skin. Hence, there are no scars. The tiny needle entry points are barely noticeable and begin to fade quickly within a few weeks
For your peace of mind, at Medisculpt™, we have the most extensive range of Fractional CO2 Lasers to help reduce any type of scarring whether related to a surgery or trauma.
This depends upon various factors. Most patients report longevity of 1.5 to 3 years if their body weight remains stable. Due to the absorbable nature of threads, more threads can be inserted at any time down the track to maintain the results over years to come.
This depends upon the number of threads used and whether thread lift is performed alone or is combined with other procedures. Most patients can go back to work the same day. However, some patients may require a supportive micropore tape applied on top of the skin to take the pressure off the threads and help them settle in the place for first three days. Therefore, we recommend taking three working days off work to be on the safe side.
