Silhouette Soft Melbourne

Also known as a stitch lift or a suture lift, the thread lift is a non-surgical way of addressing the features of the face and neck. The procedure uses fine threads, made of a special suture material, to lift certain areas of the face and neck and give them a youthful look, with less recovery time, discomfort as well as the risk of undergoing full plastic surgery.

This technique originated a few years back when cosmetic surgeons began looking for alternative techniques to counteracting the visual effects of ageing. They were looking for a procedure that was safer, simpler and used more effective techniques than the traditional facelift

The technique they developed employed a very fine thread of suture material that is placed inside the fatty layer in the subcutaneous region below the skin, this procedure is minimally invasive.

Your skin is numbed to make the procedure comfortable. The insertion of the thread is performed with medical grade, sterilized equipment. The whole process takes anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes.

All patients are given an aftercare information sheet, and a free review consultation to make sure everything is on track.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is involved with having a Thread Lift?

Thread Lifts Explained

Thread lifts can be performed with or without the use of an intravenous sedative. The procedure is not particularly painful or very invasive, but some people would rather be anaesthetized during the procedure so as not to remember anything.
The first task in preparing for a thread lift is to determine which areas are to be treated and then decide which directions will produce the most natural look. This is done by repositioning the skin and deciding on the best position, then marking off the points to reposition with a surgical marker.

Once the benchmarks have all been properly set, local anaesthetics can be applied to the area. The anaesthetics used have two primary purposes. First, they will numb the area of operations so there will be no pain and second, they contain adrenaline which can act to stop up blood vessels making the area less susceptible to bruising.
The threads will then be passed from the hairline or right behind the ear to the areas that are to be lifted. The location of the repositioning will decide where the threads are passed. The threads are passed into the affected area by a long needle and are then used to pull the skin backwards and produce a proper effect.

What are the most common side effects of a thread lift procedure?

The Most common side effect of a thread lift is mild swelling, sometimes bruising. This is not a standard reaction from all patients but some to bruise or swell significantly. Sometimes this can take over a week to fully disappear, often it is gone in a couple days.
There is also a mild amount of discomfort associated with this procedure. The cheeks naturally feel tight and there can be some expected pain around the ears and upper jawline, especially when chewing and yawning.
This “downtime” can be easily remedied with plenty of water, nourishing soft foods and oral analgesics that can keep the pain to bearable levels. There will be some tolerable soreness for up to 3 weeks.
There are also certain complications that can arrive from a cosmetic perspective as well. Occasionally, there may be an asymmetric tilt into the right or left. This is nothing to be concerned about and the cosmetic professional applying the threads can simply bring balance by applying a few more.
Certain times, the physician performing the procedure has left the subdermal threads to close to the surface and they may be visible post-procedure. Incorrect placement of threads can also cause the skin to “pucker”, one of the more common anomalies of the thread lift.
A very rare occurrence is the presence of infection in the skin treated with a thread lift. This is very uncommon as most clinics perform this procedure under sterile conditions.
Scarring is natural, but because the incisions are so small and the threads so fine there is very little chance that this will cause any visually identifiable problems.

Will I look dramatically different?

 

No. Our practitioners work like artists, using the natural contours of your face for guidance. Your normal facial expressions will remain unaffected. During your free consultation your doctor or nurse will discuss the best plan for you for subtle effects.

How long will the Threads Last?

Thread lifts can offer a significantly long-term lift to the skin. It doesn’t last forever, though, and tissues will begin to return to their southward positions. A thread lift may need to be repeated within two years time or more often depending on how you wish to address your visual aspects.

Who is suitable for this procedure and who is not?

A thread lift is a perfect option for those who wish to address their visual aspect without undergoing the full facelift procedure.

This could be ideal for anyone who:
-wants to delay a facelift procedure until it is a necessity.
-don’t want to have surgery.

-lack the elasticity for a facelift, a younger patient problem.
-are unfit for a full surgical procedure.
There are also certain facial features or structures that can make the thread lift especially difficult. These particulars are best explained by your cosmetic professional, but there are also many online resources that deal with providing information to those seeking a more youthful appearance.
Even though there are some relatively unsuitable conditions for this procedure, it is best to have a consultation with a professional Cosmetic Doctor before assuming any condition can’t be addressed. This largely depends on the skill and commitment of the professional performing the procedure.
There is one condition that will render the individual unsuitable for this procedure and this is having an unrealistic view of what a thread lift can accomplish. Those who assume they will look as dramatically different as when they would with a full facelift, will be sorely disappointed with the rather subtle differences of the thread lift.
In a case like this, people seeking cosmetic improvement may be better off opting for the full face lift procedure.
As with any cosmetic procedure, another important option is leave cute enough alone.

Our in-depth consultations are the best in the industry. It’s important to us that you achieve the results you want, and we believe this starts with a great consultation. You will never be rushed and our highly trained practitioners will take the time to discuss aspects of your skin you may be unhappy with, your desired results, costs and timings. Our aim is for you to leave your consultation feeling confident, fully informed and looking forward to your treatment.

The technique they developed employed a very fine thread of suture material that is placed inside the fatty layer in the subcutaneous region below the skin, this procedure is minimally invasive.

 

How does this innovative procedure compare with more traditional facelift options?

First of all the standard facelift, is not a minor procedure. There are many variations of the facelift to address different aspects and accomplish different effects.
All facelifts have a few things in common, though, long incisions are used, the skin is lifted from the tissue below and all extra skin is excised. The changes a procedure like this can cause are very obvious and dramatic.

In the conventional facelift, there are possibilities of complications, which may not happen frequently but do happen and are a cause of concern. General anaesthetics are usually required for this procedure

Thread lifting, on the other hand, is minimally invasive and requires only small incisions. The skin and soft tissues below are lifted by these thin threads, hence the name, and anchored in stronger tissues, or fascia, below the sideburns where the smallest attachments can hide by a hair. They may also be hidden in the fascia in the deep crease located behind the ear.

The changes in appearance that thread lifting can produce are not like the tight unnatural look that is often associated with the facelift. The change brought about by a thread lift is significant but far more subtle.

The main point here is that you will still look like your regular self, only now features that have begun to sag will be returned to their proper position. This process can easily be adjusted as the year’s progress by simply adding a new stitch here or there, as you feel the need.
