Are you a suitable candidate?
If you have the desire to rid yourself of loose, sagging tissue on the face and neck, and you’re in good physical, emotional and mental health, with normal skin thickness and you have realistic expectations, you may be a good candidate for a Mini Face Lift.
If your skin is quite slack in the area you may opt for a face, brow and neck lift instead, or a combination with laser resurfacing and fat transfer. Only a qualified professional will be able to determine your individual needs.
Also, if you’re considering losing weight, you may want to wait until after your target weight is achieved, because you may need additional lifting or skin removal surgery to alleviate consequent excess skin. Otherwise, you may be wasting money on this procedure if you proceed beforehand.
Alternative Options to the Mini Face Lift
The Ultra Mini Lift is carried out in much the same way as the Mini Lift procedure. In comparison with the Mini Lift the Ultra Mini Lift utilises smaller incision sites with less excision of the skin and less muscle lift. This procedure is suitable for patients who do not yet require the Mini Lift.
A Closed Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure with no cutting of the skin required. This procedure is more suitable for younger patients with good skin quality.
During the procedure, the threads are passed through the hairline towards the area to be lifted. They are passed just under the skin with a long needle, and then used to pull the skin backwards to the hairline, resulting in the ‘lifting’ of the skin.
Silhouette Soft Threads is a technical innovation using precise placement of dissolvable threads under the skin to provide an instant effect that shorten the effects of ageing and gravity. Soft Threads are intended to produce a natural look through subtle changes. Each treatment is tailored to the individual patient and can be adapted to suit your specific needs and preferences.
