The early signs of aging are first seen on the face. Jowls, loose skin, and wrinkles are common problems that make a person look older. Most people undergo a facelift to treat these problems surgically. A facelift is an invasive surgery that leads to downtime and can be problematic for many patients. A thread lift is an alternative to facelifts and is a minimally invasive option that ensures less downtime and more comfort for the patient.

THE THREAD LIFT

A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure used to lift the face using sutures. It is also referred to as a barbed suture lift. Instead of surgically removing loose skin, the thread lift uses sutures to stitch parts of the skin. This ensures the skin is pulled up, which contributes to the tightening of the skin.

This helps to eradicate the signs of aging and produces aesthetically pleasing skin that appears more youthful. Another benefit of the thread lift is its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. In this process, the body’s production of collagen is improved, which contributes to long-lasting results that continue to improve over the course of time.

GOOD CANDIDATES FOR THE THREAD LIFT PROCEDURE

A thread lift can be undergone by anyone who wants to address the signs of aging but is not keen on undergoing a highly invasive surgery like a facelift. It is also suitable for patients who have some health problems and do not want to undergo surgery using general anesthesia. It is best suited for people who have started to notice the signs of aging and desire a subtle but natural-looking improvement in their facial aesthetic.

The procedure is usually performed on the forehead, cheeks, eyebrow line, jawline, and area below the eye.

By far the best experience I’ve had with a surgeon in his profession and office staff! The entire team at Solomon Cosmetic ROCKS! I started my journey with them back in September of 2020, after searching extensively for a great surgeon in my area to do a BBL. From day one Dr. Solomon and all his office staff were very inviting, warm, engaged, and helpful in explaining any and all questions and concerns I had about the procedure I was inquiring about. Very pleased to have had virtual and in person consultations with the doctor and staff before making the decision in choosing them. I couldn’t have picked a better team! Dr. Solomon definitely delivered what I asked for, and the entire experience was easy and perfect! I am super excited to be his patient again this year!

Excellent staff and very honest doctor. Dr. Solomon does not lead the patient one way or the other, like a few other Doctors I have spoken with.i believe his reviews speak for this practice. I will definitely return.

Michelle Turner

I have picked and utilized Dr. Solomon for many surgeries, as a 44 year old woman I wanted to enhance and fix some of the aging on my face and body. Dr. Solomon and his staff for the last several years have been great to work with and made me feel comfortable on all visits. He has the best bedside manners and the nurses care about your overall experience and aftercare. I highly recommend and will continue to go to his practice for all my plastic surgery and Botox needs.

HOW IS THE THREAD LIFT PROCEDURE PERFORMED?

Prior to the procedure, a consultation is done with Dr. Solomon where he will discuss the details of the procedure and its benefits. Before undergoing the procedure, Dr. Solomon will perform an evaluation of your facial features and general state of health to determine if you’d make a good candidate for the thread lift. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis which means you can return home soon after it is completed.

The procedure begins with a facial cleansing to rid the skin of any impurities. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the skin to ensure the patient feels comfortable throughout the entire process. Thin, dissolvable sutures will be threaded underneath the skin. Using these sutures, Dr. Solomon will be able to pull the skin tightly around the designated treatment area. The process will take about 45 minutes to complete.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE THREAD LIFT PROCEDURE

Minor side effects like bleeding or swelling may occur. These side effects are temporary, but Dr. Solomon will prescribe medication to take care of these issues. There is no downtime required for recovery, but follow up visits are needed to monitor your healing progress.

The effects of this procedure will be seen immediately after the threading is done. As your production of collagen is stimulated, you can expect continued improvements over the course of time. The threads inserted are dissolvable and are absorbed by the tissues over time as well.

The effects of a thread lift may last for anywhere from one to three years. After this, the procedure can be repeated if desired.
