Thread lifting or suture suspension lifting represents an ideal minimally invasive alternative to traditional forehead, face and/or neck lifting procedures for those requiring less aggressive treatment or seeking a procedure that demands less recovery time. Performed under local anesthesia with or without supplemental intravenous sedation, thread lifting involves the passage of specialized suture material within the deep tissue to elevate and re-suspend eyebrows, cheeks, jowls or re-establish a crisp neck angle. It is typically performed on an outpatient basis in a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgical Facility (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’), yielding dramatic results with minimal ‘down time’. Additionally, suture suspension lifting can readily be combined with other facial rejuvenation techniques, such as ‘blepharoplasty’, facial ‘liposuction’ or ‘dermabrasion’.
By restoring youthful facial contours, thread lifting can improve your overall outlook by enhancing self-confidence.
When considering a thread lift, or indeed any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
