A thread lift is a unique non-surgical facelift alternative that corrects various trouble spots caused by aging skin in just one procedure.
Younger patients with mild skin sagging and moderate wrinkles will find that it delivers spectacular results without resorting to the expense and downtime of a surgical facelift. Renew your skin with an expert thread lift from Dr. Sadati.
Dr. Sadati’s thread lift is a highly customized procedure that can correct various skin aging concerns in a single treatment. These include:
A thread lift suspends and lifts sagging skin using a fine, medical-grade polypropylene material that is delicately threaded through the skin below the skin surface. The threads contain tiny hooks that safely latch onto the underlying tissue to gently lift and suspend the skin.
As the thread is gently pulled taut, it has a beautiful lifting effect that allows sagging skin and wrinkles to defy gravity. Sagging skin is lifted upward, all without permanently altering the structure of the patient’s face due to the fact that the threads are dissolvable, similar to dissolving stitches. The sterile threads safely break down over time and are naturally expelled by the body. A thread lift does not require incisions, making it a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery.
In contrast to facelift surgery, a thread lift is a relatively fast outpatient procedure that generally takes 1-2 hours to complete. General anesthesia is not required, as there is no surgery or cutting involved, as would be necessary with a surgical facelift.
Patients often ask, ‘Is a thread lift painful?’ Or ‘Does a thread lift hurt?’ With a thread lift, there is no bleeding, incisions, or scarring. It is a minimally invasive procedure. Due to this, most patients find the initial discomfort of the procedure quite manageable — and certainly worth the instant age-defying results. Talk about instant gratification - skin immediately looks rejuvenated and firmer following treatment!
The ideal thread lift candidate is between the age of 30 to 50, however, it depends on the degree of skin laxity and wrinkle depth that is present. Thread lifts are suitable for women and men with mild to moderate skin sagging that they find cosmetically displeasing. Patients with more advanced signs of facial aging, such as very loose skin, will see better results with alternative treatments.
The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery offers a range of surgical and nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments that can be customized to your needs. As with nearly all cosmetic procedures, the ideal candidate is in good health overall, a non-smoker or willing to quit, and neither pregnant nor breastfeeding at the time of the procedure. In order to determine if a thread lift is in your best interest, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sadati for a skin examination and discussion of your individual aesthetic concerns.
Thread lift results last up to six months. The polypropylene material will gradually dissolve over this time. The procedure may be repeated when the results wear off to maintain a youthful face, neck, and jawline.
The beauty of a thread lift facelift is that there is not much downtime to speak of — especially when compared to the average facelift downtime, which can exceed 2 weeks. Many patients choose to have a thread lift just before the weekend, as it is possible to return to work and social activities shortly after treatment. Typically, patients can expect to return to work within 1-3 days. Remote workers without face-to-face interaction may be able to resume work even sooner.
There are some risks with any surgery, but with Dr. Sadati, an award-winning Orange County thread lift expert that specializes in the latest skin aging treatments, you could not be in better hands.
Mild redness, slight swelling, and bruising may occur in some patients. These are the most common thread lift side effects. Makeup may be used to camouflage temporary redness and bruises that may develop shortly after treatment for patients that prefer to conceal it. It is best to schedule a thread lift at least 2-3 weeks before any big social events.
A side effect that is unique to the thread lift procedure is a temporary sensation of skin tightness. This is mild and may only be noticeable over the next few weeks when making certain facial expressions. This is perfectly normal and not a cause for concern; It takes time for the skin to become acclimated to the superfine threads in the treated area, and a degree of swelling may also contribute to this sensation.
