PDO Thread Lift Treatment Recovery Time

Thread lift recovery time will vary depending on the specific areas treated and the number of threads used.

You may return to your normal activities within a few days, although it may take a week or more for any swelling or bruising to subside fully.

It's important to follow your surgeon's post-thread lift treatment instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications and ensure the best possible results.

Thread Lift Complications 

Like any procedure, thread lift facial treatment has the potential for side effects. Some common side effects may include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Numbness
  • Minor pain or discomfort

These side effects are typically temporary and should resolve within a few days to a week.

How Is Thread Facial Lift Performed?

On the day of the procedure, you will be given either local anesthesia or intravenous sedation to numb the area and minimize discomfort.

The surgeon will make small incisions in the treated area and insert the threads under the skin. The threads are then gently pulled to lift and tighten the skin into a more youthful position. The threads also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to further tighten and smooth the skin.

Once the procedure is completed, the incisions will be closed and bandaged. Most patients can return home the same day as their treatment, although some may need to stay overnight in the hospital for observation. You will likely need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to help with swelling and support the treated area as it heals.

What Is The Difference Between Facelift Vs. Thread Lift?

Facelifts and thread lifts are options for addressing sagging skin and wrinkles on the face. A facelift is a surgical procedure involving removing excess skin and tightening underlying muscles in the face and neck. It requires a general anesthetic and takes several hours to complete, with a recovery period of several weeks.

A thread lift is a non-surgical procedure involving special threads to lift and tighten the skin. It can be performed under local anesthetic and takes only a few hours to complete, with a recovery period of just a few days.

Both facelift and thread lift can be effective treatments, but they differ in invasiveness, recovery time, and the results they can achieve.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does thread lift last? 

The duration of a thread lift can vary, but it generally provides results that last several months to a few years. The longevity of a thread lift will depend on the individual's specific situation and the factors contributing to the aging process.

Is a thread lift worth it?

A thread lift is a non-surgical procedure that can lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. It is not a replacement for a surgical facelift and may not provide the same level of lifting and tightening. It is essential to discuss your goals and concerns with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if a thread lift is a suitable option for you.

What is the downside of a thread lift?

A thread lift has potential downsides, such as limited results, risk of complications, pain and discomfort, cost, and limited treatment options. It is unsuitable for everyone and may not be effective for people with severe sagging, loose skin, or deep wrinkles and lines. It is essential to carefully consider the potential downsides and discuss them with a qualified plastic surgeon before deciding to undergo the procedure.

How long does it take to recover from thread lifts?

The recovery time after a thread lift can vary depending on the individual's specific situation and the technique used during the procedure. Most people can generally return to their normal activities within a few days of a thread lift. However, following the post-procedure instructions provided by your plastic surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery is essential.

What are the benefits of thread lifting?

A thread lift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses threads to lift and tighten the skin. It has a quick recovery time and can provide natural-looking results that improve skin texture. It is generally less expensive than a surgical facelift and can be customized to address specific areas of the face and neck.
