Thread Face Lift in Long Island, NY
The visible effects of aging are one of the most common reasons people opt for plastic surgery. For those seeking a minimally invasive option, we offer thread face lifts to those in Long Island, Queens and surrounding New York communities. This skin-lifting treatment is performed by board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Eunice E. Park, MD.
What is a Thread Face Lift?
A thread face lift is a minimally-invasive facelift that targets the mid-facial skin to re-contour the face. Thread lifts work by placing supportive structures underneath the skin to lift and smooth it. As the body breaks these structures down, collagen production increases, tightening and improving the skin over the following months. This unique treatment combines the instant lift of the structures with the long-term lift caused by increased collagen production to provide emphasized, natural-looking results with minimal downtime.
Benefits of a Thread Face Lift
With a thread face lift, you can enjoy instant and long-lasting skin-lifting results without surgery. Benefits of a thread face lift include:
- Long-lasting results that improve over time as the structures dissolve
- Painless procedure
- Can be combined with other treatments
- Minimal downtime and recovery
Am I a Candidate for a Thread Face Lift?
Although many patients can benefit from the thread face lift, certain conditions may indicate that you are not a good candidate for the treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Park will examine your skin and discusses your medical history to determine if a thread face lift is a viable, effective option for you and your skin. If you are not a good candidate for the procedure, Dr. Park will recommend an alternative.
What to Expect from a Thread Face Lift?
A thread face lift treatment takes about 45 minutes to complete. If you prefer, a local numbing agent can be applied to minimize any discomfort during the procedure, although most patients find the treatment virtually painless. Next, sutures are threaded under the skin’s surface to create the immediate lifting effect.
What is Recovery from a Thread Face Lift like?
There is no downtime required after your thread face lift. Some patients may experience soreness or bruising following treatment, but it is generally mild and fades within days. Most patients can resume normal daily activities and return to work the same day as their treatment. Results are immediate, but additional improvements can be expected for 3-6 months as the sutures dissolve and collagen production increases.
How Much Does a Thread Face Lift Cost in Long Island, NY?
