The society put pressure on the appearance and with the first sign of ageing, we start considering the facial enhancement.
Thread lift and facelift are procedures which achieve the appearance with a younger and fresh look. Even both of these treatments improve saggy skin on the cheeks, jowls and neck their technique is very different. Since thread lift is minimally invasive, a facelift is a cosmetic surgery with longer effect.
The thread lift is also known as Silhouette InstaLift which improves the appearance but it doesn't remove the excess skin. This procedure fixes the noticeable sagging skin by using the dissolvable surgical threads.
The threads are inserted and anchored to your skin then pulled to tighten the skin for a younger appearance allowing to lift underlying tissue which droops when we age.
The collagen is then stimulated and gravity will not affect it which brings longer-lasting result. This method is non-surgical treatment and provides a natural rejuvenated look, however, the result is not permanent and this procedure has to be repeated as it usually lasts only about 4-6 months.
Silhouette Instalift is mainly suitable for younger candidates with early signs of ageing, saggy skin which needs to be lifted but not removed.
The expectation after this surgery should not be too high as it is less invasive than a traditional facelift and it also brings less visible result. This technique is usually either first facial treatment to start with facial procedure or only as a touch up after the traditional facelift.
The surgery, a so-called “thread-lift,” involves placing barbed threads under the skin and then tightening them to pull up drooping facial tissues do not have the long-lasting effect and it also has side effects or even risks.
The side effects after the thread lift are very common, the same as with other treatments, such as bruising and swelling. Buckling of the skin can occur and the threads can bunch up or even break through the skin and injure the gland.
Our clinic itself has treated Mrs Carmen 54, who has suffered from scarred skin tissue. She has only found out when she had a traditional facelift done that the tissue is damaged.
Some patients also reported there were even no noticeable difference and improvements and it has been also described as “underwhelming”. You basically end up short of money but also with either short-lasting result or no result at all.
No one wants to spend some time recovering and also spend money without a noticeable result. It is not only financing what should bother us when deciding for the right treatment.
The result and possible side effects and risks should be the top factors when thinking of facial treatment. It might take more time to recover after the traditional facelift, but the result achieved with this procedure is more visible and permanent.
It not only tighten your skin but also removes the excess and it allows youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
There are various methods of facelifts which can be fitted to you based on your needs and expectation.
The traditional facelift is one of the most common cosmetic surgery and the techniques are always upgraded and surgeons extremely skilled. Almost no complications and risks following the correct aftercare.
The facelift treatment is usually considered in the early stage of the ageing. Once the cosmetic products and moisturisers are not enough to keep skin fresh and young, the idea of the facelift comes along.
The first step is to research as much as possible and choose the clinic with the most experienced surgeons.
In case you are not sure what method you are a suitable candidate for, our team of surgeons with a professional medical team can also advise and recommend based on your needs, expectation and your finance limit.
