Thread lift allow to go back in case of disappointment
This is a post from Doctor Foumenteze’s blog
Sometimes called “lunch time” facelift by some, thread lift technique is still wrongly considered as easy or simplistic.
Buried by the same people who were so quick to create these marketing formulas, this technique still suffers of the “noises” surrounding it in 2014.
One thing is for sure, this technique has undeniably produced disappointing results for a lot of patients.
This deception can be of three sorts :
- Lack of results,
- Visible threads as too superficial,
- Or painful as too deep.
Fortunately firstly, the effects are never serious due to the lack of incision during surgery. This absence makes the appearance of any scar simply impossible, as the risk of hurting the vasculature or severing a nerve. The needles used to implant the threads are not cutting tip and therefore can not cause this type of post-operative effects. The skin is completely preserved unlike traditional surgical facelift which ask for a part of it to be removed, making it irreversible in case of problems.
In addition, tensor threads are completely reversible and there is no condition for this. Even years after the intervention, they continue to be able to be removed without difficulty and especially without leaving any trace on the patient’s face. Thus, in case of disappointment, visible or sensitive threads, you do not have to worry and simply request the withdrawal of the threads to your practitioner.
The installer should never leave a patient with this type of problem, try to get more time, blame technology or, as it unfortunately happens, redirect the patient to a psychologist.
From the angle of doctors like me, struggling for 10 years for this wonderful technique to get the necessary education, adequate supervision, and the reputation it deserves when the thread and insertion technique are quality this situation is not acceptable while everything can be fixed just by removing the threads.
It is also important to clarify that this kind of inconvenience would often be avoided if all the practitioners were able to receive real quality training.
