A thread lift is a delicate cosmetic procedure that gently lifts sagging facial skin, returning it to its original contours. It is a less invasive alternative to a surgical face lift and comes without the cost, potential risks and downtime.
Dr. Jadoon is a national trainer for Promitialia® Threads and has successfully performed hundreds of thread lifting procedures in Perth and Sydney using Silhouette Soft® & Promoitalia® threads.
Thread lifting was introduced several years ago using barbed threads made of non-absorbent surgical materials. Results were variable, with occasional rapid loss of correction, as the threads lost their “grip” on the tissues they were put in place to support. This was due to incorrect placement of threads in the skin and inherent flaws in the suture material used.
Many doctors performing these earlier procedures were not properly trained, and it took them a while to gain the necessary experience to iron out potential complications associated with this technique.
The permanent nature of threads also meant that they were not absorbed by the body and remained in the tissue indefinitely, leading to various long-term complications.
The permanent nature of threads meant that they were not absorbed by the body and remained in the tissue indefinitely, causing all sorts of problems in the long term.
The invention of absorbable threads in the last few years has given cosmetic physicians a new and valuable tool.
Ever since its introduction to the Australian market, the thread lifting procedure has become more reliable with greater patient satisfaction, more effective results and very few complications.
The procedure combines simplicity with style and delivers the desired result at a reasonable cost.
At Medaesthetics®, we rarely use a thread lift as a stand-alone procedure. We routinely combine Threads with dermal fillers, fat transfer and skin resurfacing procedures as part of our non-surgical makeovers.
Most patients report longevity of up to 3 years. Due to the absorbable nature of threads, more threads can be inserted at any time to maintain the results over the years to come.
Excellent alternatives to thread lift procedures include:
Absorbable thread lifting is performed under local anaesthesia as a walk-in walk-out procedure in under 60 minutes. Most patients tolerate the procedure well and are often surprised by how quick and easy it is to have it done. Threads are inserted
deep under the skin using fine needles and there is no cutting or stitching involved. Threads are not visible on the skin’s outer surface.
Most patients can go back to work the same day. However, some patients may require a supportive micropore tape applied on top of the skin to take the pressure off the threads and help them settle in place for first 3 days.
How much does it cost?
Thread lifting is often combined with other non-surgical procedures likes Dermal Fillers and Laser Skin Resurfacing for a complete non-surgical makeover. Prices depend upon the number of threads required to achieve the required results and can cost anywhere between $2500 to $4500.
"Art, indeed, consists in the conception of the result to be produced before its realisation in the material." - Aristotle
The practice of aesthetic medicine and surgery is as much an art as it is a science. The aesthetic sense of a clinician in evaluating a patient is as important as his or her clinical skills. At Medisculpt®, our philosophy is to artistically enhance your appearance in a way that stresses elegance over glamour.
