Facts and Myths about One Stitch Face Lift Surgery
Posted: Jan 13, 2017
Traditional facelifts involve invasive surgical procedures that take quite a while to heal. Consider a ‘one stitch face lift’ surgery if you want to achieve the results a traditional facelift can give to you, but without the invasive procedure and long downtime. A one stitch face lift surgery is considered quick and relatively simple; it is a safe way to recreate a taut and smooth appearance with a shorter recovery time compared to conventional facelift surgeries. To understand what the one stitch face lift can achieve, it is important to be able to distinguish facts from myths about it. Here are some of them:
Myth: The one stitch face lift is an alternative to a traditional facelift – Keep in mind that the procedure should not be chosen as a substitute for a full facelift, since it only provides a subtle improvement in your jawline and cheeks.
Fact: The results can last for up to one year – As long as you work with a good and experienced cosmetic surgeon, you can expect the results of the one stitch face lift surgery to last up to a year. However, keep in mind that your skin type, diet, and sun damage can be factors that determine the longevity of the results, too.
Myth: One stitch face lift is for everyone – Not necessarily. The cosmetic surgeon will determine if it is the best procedure to restore a youthful face in you. The procedure is recommended for men and women who are at least 30 years old and already making an effort to effectively fight the signs of skin ageing. Of course, you need to be physically healthy and mentally sound to be qualified for the procedure, so you can heal well and you can have realistic expectations from it. Moreover, while one stitch face lift surgery may be suitable for all skin types, the threads may not be recommended for patients who are sensitive to biomaterials or allergic to them.
Fact: Treatment is tailored to your needs – Cosmetic surgeons understand that every face is different. Hence, they will tailor the treatment and the threads to be used according to your condition. You may require threads that do not have cones or barbs, but would be inserted in a criss-cross manner, or you may need threads with barbs and cones to lift a certain area.
