Who is a good candidate for a Thread Lift in NJ?
Ideal candidates for thread facelifts are patients in NJ with minimal signs of aging who need just a small lift. Reasons, why people choose a thread lift, is that they have minimally sagging midfacial appearance, more prominence of the jaw, or slight bags under the eyes or on the neck. Older people may undergo a thread lift during a surgical facelift procedure to provide additional support for the soft tissue area that was elevated in the facelift.
Other thread facelift candidates may include people who have had some relapse from a previous plastic surgery procedure such as a neck lift or facelift.
The Thread Lift Procedure
A thread lift is minimally invasive therefore general anesthesia is not required. You can remain awake during the procedure. One benefit of being awake during the procedure is that the doctor can give you a mirror as the thread is pulled back, allowing you to give feedback. For most patients usually an oral anti-anxiety medication, along with local anesthesia, is all that is required.
During the procedure, Dr. Gordon Kaplan will insert thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. The threads attached to the skin tissue are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. The barbs on these threads will lock in place and encourage collagen formation upon insertion to lift very specific areas.
Thread Lift Recovery
Dr. Gordon Kaplan will give you post-op instructions for you to follow after the procedure to reduce the risk of complications during recovery. Diet restrictions (soft foods) for two days. Pain can be managed with oral medications.
