Across Maryland, the facelift procedure known as the Threadlift™, or the Contour Thread™ Face Lift, has generated much excitement. It's no wonder, considering that with this procedure many patients can benefit from immediate lifting of the facial skin, a short recovery time and no visible scars.
The Threadlift™ is best suited for Baltimore facial rejuvenation patients who are younger, with early skin laxity, and for those who have had a traditional facelift and are seeking a small tuck. It can also be an option for smokers and medically high-risk patients, and for people who would rather avoid general anesthesia. The procedure is popular with men who are excited about the possibility of a natural-looking lift without scarring, especially if they are bald or have a receding hairline.
To achieve optimal results, careful patient selection is key. As one of the first surgeons in the country to perform the procedure, Dr. Dean Kane is highly experienced in choosing appropriate candidates and performing the procedure with precision. Wondering whether the Threadlift™ is a good choice for you? The best way to find out is to request a consultation with Dr. Kane.
For this unique, minimally invasive procedure, tiny barbs on a specially-designed suture are woven into the superficial layers of the skin to gently lift the cheeks, jowls and upper neck. Patients see an immediate lifting effect which becomes permanent within several weeks when the underlying tissue heals into its new position.
The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia; however, for most people mild sedation is the best choice. The Threadlift™ normally takes about an hour.
Following the procedure, any minor pain can be controlled with over the counter medication. Patients often experience some bruising and swelling for a few days, but less than they would have with a traditional facelift. Most Maryland residents engage in light activity the day following their Threadlift™ and return to work in about a week.
Baltimore facelift patients are most often very pleased with the results of their Threadlift™. The procedure can take years off the appearance of your face by:
