In short, Yes!! The answer is obviously quasi-simple, but the explanation of how we go about achieving this result is much more complex. For those of you who enjoy my blog, I will try.
Evolution of facelift surgery has truly come a long way from simply elevating the skin from underlying structure, cutting excess skin, and pinning it back behind the ear to tighten the jawline and neck. Over the years, Surgeons have realized the importance of
1. anatomical zones of muscles, it’s enveloping fascial tissues and ligaments which, all need to be returned to their youthful position, as well as
2. replenishment of the soft tissue volume from loss of fat in various anatomical compartments of the face, and finally
3. rejuvenation of the peri-orbital area to provide a total and harmonious result. After all, what good is it to have sharp jawline and neck when your cheek still looks like it is melting down like a polar bear or your eyes which are the windows to your world still look tired, fatigued, or worn out.
Just as it holds for patients who opt for surgical rejuvenation, viable “non-surgical turning back the clock” can not be achieved without addressing all these concomitant aging changes as well. Very often, simply lifting the skin with thread without addressing other aging changes will not always yield the result that the patient may have been hoping for. Conversely, thread lift can be a very viable approach for even elderly patients with multiple aging changes, as long as they can be all addressed at the same time. To this end, I am seeing more and more patients who have had some variation of thread lifting elsewhere, just not quite satisfied… simply because the provided didn’t or couldn’t take a more holistic approach to the patients aging changes
At JK Facial Plastics, upon comprehensive consultation, we decide what bespoke combination of multi-modality non-surgical therapy is needed for the individual patient to truly turn the clock back. I believe knowing this “formula” is what sets a Provider that can achieve a non-surgical result nearly comparable to a comprehensive surgical result, from a Provider who simply can’t. Always do your due diligence in finding a Board Certified Provider who has the proper training and depth of clinical experience to provide you with this “Non-Surgical Turning Back the Clock” using the optimal formula of thread lifting combined with other ancillary procedures, best suited for your unique aging changes.
Following video blogs demonstrate the use of thread lifting in combination with different multi-modality treatments to achieve the optimal natural improvement.
