Thread Lift Vs. Face Lift

|

chin and face copy.jpgYou may have heard of a procedure gaining popularity as a non-surgical alternative to the face lift - it's called a "thread lift." In a thread lift, threads are sewn into a patient's facial skin, and then pulled to tighten the skin for a lifted, younger appearance. Patients are under local anesthetic, and downtime is minimal.

It sounds like a good plan at first, but the threads dissolve and results usually only last 6 months. So 180 days after your procedure, you're back to where you were before, and out of pocket a significant amount of money.

That's one reason we don't perform thread lifts at Savannah Plastic Surgery - we want you to be happy with your results in the long term. A face lift is cosmetic surgery, and patients are put under general anesthesia and need around 2 weeks to recover. But the results are long lasting. No one can completely stop time - your face will continue to age and you may want to repeat the procedure one or more times-perhaps five or ten years down the line. But in another sense, the effects of even one face lift are lasting; years later, you'll continue to look better than if you'd never had a face lift at all.

If you are looking for facial rejuvenation but aren't ready for a full face lift, you may also consider the FreshLook Lift. The FreshLook Lift is a less invasive facelift performed by our plastic surgeons as an outpatient with local anesthesia and mild sedation. This allows the patient to return home and resume daily activities sooner. The "down time" is reduced to a few days.

Or, if you just need a "quick fix," fillers and injectables like Botox, Dysport, Restylane and Juvederm are also viable alternatives to surgery.

If you have questions about which facial rejuvenation procedure is right for you, we'd love to bring you into the office for a consultation with one of our surgeons. Contact us today!
