How does Thread Lifts compare to Surgical Facelifts?
As with any other non-surgical option, the results of a thread lift cannot be directly compared to a surgical facelift performed by a plastic surgeon. Since threads can only anchor the tissues where they are placed, the amount of lift achieved is usually by a few millimeters. Therefore, it is ideal for those who are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, and prefer a more natural result compared to facelift surgery.
Non-surgical face lifts using threads can be performed in less than a couple of hours and without the need for heavy sedation or overnight hospitalization, so can be much more affordable than a surgical face lift.
Another advantage of thread lifts is that it is considered a low-risk procedure due to the fact that there is virtually no risk of scarring, excessive bruising, swelling, bleeding or other complications. This also means that there is minimal recovery time.
This is why thread lifts is a great alternative for those who are not ready to have a surgical face lift procedure.
