Thread lift

Hello! Which thread lift gives the best lift effect if you want to change the face shape from round to more oval? ( I'm only 30 years old) I've heard that thicker threads give a better lift.

I'm not a fan of thread lifts. They tend to recur quickly. Fillers may be a better option for patients who need a temporary improvement of facial volume distribution in the face, especially for a 30 year-old. Because we have a very active facelift practice, we see many of the thread lifts firsthand. few if any of them are still working at the time the facelift is done! Also modern facelifts enable better volume distribution, particularly in the upper third of the face, than they did previously.

The newer thread lifts are really more of a dermal filler and work great. We offer the Nova Lift at the Northwestern MedSpa which was recently featured on the Doctors.

The thread lift has fallen out of favor after experience showed limited and short-term improvement. Other surgical and non-surgical techniques have shown better results, depending on your individual anatomy and changes. Altering facial shape may be done by selective liposuction, fat grafting, hyaluronic volume fillers, and perhaps facial implants. I would suggest that, rather than pre-selecting a technique, consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons, and learn from their assessments and recommendations.

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend any thread lift technique for facial rejuvenation. They rarely do what they are supposed to and, if they do, the results are quite temporary. For you, fillers like Juvederm Voluma that give excellent lift and shape to the face and also last 2 years are less expensive and more long lasting. See a plastic surgeon who offers multiple options.

All thread lifts are not the same. While they sound great, they do have limitations. The biggest limitation is comparing them to a surgical facelift. Someone that is 30 years old may only need fillers to provide an improvement you are looking for. In addition, there are new thread lift procedures that are becoming available. They have advantages vs previous versions. Thus, you should seek a personal consult with an ASAPS membrer to explore all of your options!

My only advice is to not undergo a thread lift. It has definitely fallen out of favor due to poor results and complications with attempts at removal of the threads.
