After the After the Threadlift Facelift
After the Threadlift Facelift:
Following the Threadlift facelift procedure,
patients can reduce their risk of bruising and swelling if they keep
their head elevated, keep cool compresses over the cheeks, and avoid
straining or strenuous activities. To reduce the risk of disengagement or breaking of the Threadlift threads, the
face/cheeks should not be pulled down for six weeks. For example,
facial massages are to be avoided and patients should take care when
washing their face or shaving not to stretch their cheeks and jowls
About 3-4 weeks after the procedure, your body will grow collagen fibers around the threadlift threads, effectively locking the threadlift sutures into place. This provides long-term support and gives you the ability to have the sutures re-tightened in the future as you age.
Additional procedures may be performed
simultaneously with the Threadlift facelift. For example, an upper
eyelid lift, a lower eyelid lift, structural fat grafting, and neck
liposuction may all be performed under local anesthesia in
appropriately selected patients. Incredible results can be obtained by combining fractional laser resurfacing (e.g. Fraxel®) with the threadlift facelift procedure.
In patients desiring additional skin
tightening and collagen replenishment, the Thermage, Titan or Accent
procedures should be performed either prior to the Threadlift face lift
and neck lift procedure or starting about two months after the Threadlift
facelift and necklift procedure.
