There are options for having the skin on the face and neck toned and lifted which are minimally invasive. Researching what options are available is a great idea, because most face lift procedures are more invasive surgical procedures which require longer healing times. With the advent of new technologies and innovative techniques, medical cosmetic surgeons are finding it easier to treat patients with less invasive techniques.
Some are finding that the Threadlift procedure offers an effective alternative to the typical invasive face lift. Cosmetic surgeons make small incisions where a thread is inserted and the skin is then pulled up or back to set on the thread that is placed deep under the skin where it cannot be seen or felt. This allows for a far less invasive treatment with results that are impressive. It is important to be realistic about the expectations however, because Threadlift is not as invasive and therefore cannot pull the skin back in the same ways that actual surgery can, which often involves the removal of skin in order to pull it back tighter.
If seeking out a minimally invasive treatment, this may be it however, and a regular surgical facelift can take much longer to heal. Many patients find the results with less invasive procedures to be comparable and worth it for less healing time. It is always a great idea to research what the benefits and risks are for every surgical procedure. Asking plenty of questions is always a good idea as is seeking a trusted and experienced cosmetic surgeon that is familiar with the Threadlift procedure. After the surgery is performed, the healing process may be quicker, but the process is much like other surgeries on the face. For one thing, touching the face and using facial muscles or being very expressive should be limited. The skin needs a chance to heal and to get accustomed to the movement. If the muscles are used too much the incision areas may not heal as well.
After the thread is inserted into the skin and healed, over time the body will produce collagen that forms around the thread which will help to support the procedure further, and keep the skin held back. This procedure is an effective way to alter the appearance of sagging skin, as well as to remove wrinkles in some ways, that does not involve prolonged healing times and discomfort after the surgery is completed. It is important to discuss whether or not the procedure is the best option for you, what your motives are, and what you intend to have the surgery do for you. Having realistic expectations anytime a surgical procedure involving a major alteration in appearance is involved is a great idea. This helps to guarantee a higher degree of satisfaction and also helps to avoid disappointment. A cosmetic surgeon that is experienced with Threadlift can discuss the procedure with you and help you to decide if the procedure is the best option for your desire to have even more radiant and smooth skin.
