“Mini-Procedures: Are They Worth It?
I don’t think there is a woman out there who really wants to get her face cut and sewn up by anyone. Fortunately, that is why there are so many alternatives to the three “P’s” (Plastic Surgery, Pain, and Price). Some may be better on the pocket book and have much less pain involved but are they all that they’re cracked up to be. Let’s take a look at one such procedure that has gotten mixed reviews.
The Thread Face Lift
If you’re dead set on getting a procedure done but don’t want the invasive surgery or the bill, there is a method that is used on some women who qualify. By that I mean, not everyone is a good candidate for this type of lift that is called a Thread Face Lift. However, be forewarned that this type of lessor surgery may not give you the results that you want.
Is It For Me?
The most qualified patients are those in their 30s – 60s and have moderately well-toned skin that is just beginning to sag and lose elasticity. Patients are at a much lower risk for complications as little to no anesthesia is needed for this safe method that involves a series of threads placed under the skin to aid in supporting repositioned muscle and soft tissues. Furthermore, because the procedure is less risky, has a much more doable recovery time, and a price tag that can be half of the cost of traditional face lift surgery, many women are considering it as a viable option.
There are claims that the thread lift gives you back a tight, youthful look of yesteryear; this can be true, but the downside is that the skin will eventually begin to fight the “fish hook” like supports and move back to it’s previous state, as explained by Dr. Robert Colter, MD in this WebMD video.
If you are considering this type of procedure, do your research in advance by finding a well-qualified and experienced surgeon who has performed the Thread Face Lift regularly.
Tomorrow we will look at some various products that will give anything from a temporary lift to results that last indefinitely. In the mean time, be well, and be beautiful.
