Who is the best candidate for a ‘Fox Eye’ procedure?
Thread lift procedures are not for everyone, an ideal candidate for the ‘Fox Eye’ thread lift are individuals who have a deep set and low, medial, and high arched lateral brow. Additionally, those with a higher degree of collagen within their skin and minimal fat in the eye socket, are good candidates for this procedure. Results do vary depending on muscle / skin condition and presence of Wrinkle Relaxer.
What results can you expect?
Immediate results can be seen once the threads have been inserted, however, the results will improve over the next 3-6 months. They are expected to last 12 months.
Immediately after the lifting and placements, there will be a series of needle marks on each side of the face. These will remain visible for the rest of the day, although most people are able to cover them up the next day with make-up. Excess pulling will also be noted.
You may experience some bruising and swelling around the sutures, although this tends to be minor and short-lived. For up to a week after the procedure, it may feel tender around the sutures.
How can I enhance my results?
There are times when the doctor may suggest augmenting your fox eye thread-lift with a touch of Dermal Filler and or Wrinkle Relaxer. This can improve the longevity of results, although this will be determined based on each patient’s individual needs and is not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach.
What are the risks involved?
As with any invasive procedure, potential risks and complications are involved. Mild redness, swelling, bruising, pain, and tenderness can be expected at the site of the threads, which if occur, usually subside over a few days.
Puckering can occur immediately at the site of the thread or shortly following treatment, which generally resolves over a few days to weeks. Infection and other procedure complications are uncommon.
It is important you seek treatment with a highly experienced practitioner, with great knowledge of the anatomy.
