Thread lifting as a gentle alternative to surgical facelift.

What is a thread lifting (Suture lifting)?

Just a few years ago, a facelift was always associated with a complex operation. Nowadays, with the help of thread lifts, doctors can smooth drooping cheeks, sagging facial contours or a wrinkled décolleté completely without incisions – gently and lastingly.

With increasing age, the skin loses its elasticity. It slackens and wrinkles form around the nose, eyes and mouth. Many people find these changes disturbing, as they often affect facial expressions – we look tired, worn out and sad. “With the help of thread lifting, we can give the face new contours again and also tighten the skin on the décolleté and neck,” says Dr. Johannes Müller-Steinmann, dermatologist and medical director of the Dermatological Center in Kiel, Germany. “The appearance then appears fresher, more alert and more attractive again.

Before the actual procedure the doctors the draw markings for the thread course on the skin. Then they pull the self-dissolving threads of polydioxanone into the desired regions with the help of fine needles. “Depending on the desired result, we use different types of sutures,” explains the dermatologist. “Smooth threads are particularly suitable for smoothing out wrinkles around the mouth and on the cheeks and for tightening slack skin on the neck and décolleté”. There are also threads with small barbs. These not only tighten the fabric, but also lift it. A combination of both thread types is also possible.

Immediately after the lifting, the skin is already firmer and wrinkles are smoothed. The final result is then visible after about six to nine months. During this time, the sutures dissolve and the skin forms new collagen, an important structural protein in the treated area. This gives the skin additional elasticity and volume. “The risk of side effects such as scarring and infections is significantly lower than with a surgical facelift, since no incisions are required to insert the sutures,” says Dr. Müller-Steinmann. “In addition, patients can leave the practice immediately after the procedure”. However, slight redness and swelling can occur for a short time.

What is the REAL truth about Threadlifts

Getting a facelift without having to undergo surgery sounds ... ▼

Getting a facelift without having to undergo surgery sounds great, right? Threadlifts have been a popular procedure in the past, but do they work? In this video, I'll give you the scoop about what threadlifts are, how they've been performed in the past, how they're performed now, and if I recommend them.

I often get questions on social media
regarding certain popular treatments
that are promoted as the newest best
thing well I'm all about giving my
patients the absolute best in the most
state-of-the-art options in cosmetic
medicine there are a lot of treatments
that are hyped up only to disappear
shortly thereafter well a recent read
through the latest aesthetic surgery
journal reminded me of one of these the
red lists
[Music]
you may be seeing ads for Threadlifts and
these go by several branded names and
these names often use a term
non-surgical facelift but they all do
virtually the same thing they use barred
sutures to attempt to lift the face and
the neck now thread lifts are popular in
the early 2000s but they faded into
obscurity
once doctors realized they basically
didn't work unfortunately their problems
did not go away because the sutures were
often permanent unfortunately thread
lists are making a comeback with many
plastic surgeons and dermatologists
touting them as an effective option to
lift droopy skin and these doctors often
charge upwards of $1,000 or more per
suture that is threaded through your
face well the sutures are now absorbable
and this probably means that they're
less effective than the permanent
sutures
fast forward to today an article in the
March issue of the aesthetic surgery
journal confirmed my suspicions the read
lists are a waste of your money while
you might see a change right away within
a year your face will return to its
original state
so buyer beware if your doctor is trying
to convince you that a thread lift will
make you look younger for the next
several years he or she isn't being
truthful trust your gut and remember
that if it sounds too good to be true it
probably is
now if you're interested in cutting
through the hype and the marketing bs

The costs for the thread lift can vary from practice to practice. At the Dermatology Center in Kiel, they amount to around 700 euros per session. As this is not a medically necessary treatment, health insurance companies generally do not cover the costs.
