Threaded Facelift

A New Growing Trend in Plastic Surgery – Threading

Threaded Facelift

These days, men and women around the world go to great lengths to make themselves appear younger. They undergo facelifts, get filler injections, and even use Botox to essentially paralyze and relax muscle groups to release their wrinkles. One new trend, known as threading, may also work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by creating a natural-looking lift that does not appear frozen in place.

What Is Threading?

In short, threading is a process by which a plastic surgeon inserts thin and sometimes barbed threads into the face to lift it up. It essentially provides a “support system” that, while far less invasive than a traditional facelift, still provides more natural-looking results than fillers or Botox. Although it may not sound appealing, it is actually not as bad as it sounds. Many surgeons call it one of the most innovative facelift techniques to date, and more and more doctors around the world are offering it to their patients.

Why Older Generations are Turning Towards Plastic Surgery More and More

Older Generations

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that 84,685 people over the age of 65 had one or more cosmetic procedures in 2010. In fact, this age group has been the fastest-growing demographic of cosmetic surgery patients for several years now. Numerous things have played a factor in this trend, which doesn’t show any sign of slowing down anytime soon.

Leading More Active Lifestyles

One of the reasons why more seniors are now seeking plastic surgery is that they are leading active lifestyles. Seniors often find themselves starting new careers or even dating in their 60s, 70s, and beyond. As such, they want to look their best in order to remain competitive. Even retired seniors who are physically active are deciding that their appearance doesn’t reflect how they feel. These individuals are choosing procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks to provide them with a fitter, more toned, appearance, since this is not always possible with diet and exercise alone.

Why Having a Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon do your Facelift is Just Smart

Facelift

If you’re considering a facelift, there are no shortage of doctors who will perform this surgery. Just because a physician claims to specialize in facelifts does not mean that he or she is actually proficient in it. For the best results, you should choose a double board certified plastic surgeon to complete your facelift, and here are a few reasons why.

Demonstrated Experience

Becoming board certified once is a feat in itself, but becoming double board certified requires and extraordinary amount of time and training. Physicians who wish to become board certified must first complete a residency in their chosen specialty, and then pass a written exam that demonstrates their knowledge. If you are lucky enough to find a surgeon who has completed this process twice, you can have confidence knowing that you are choosing one of the most skilled professionals available.

The Emotional Positives from Getting a Facelift

Facelift Emotions

Many people take the time to consider the outcomes of a facelift procedure long before they schedule their surgeries. Although it may seem like a lot of pain and expense, the emotional positives greatly outweigh them. Everyone is searching for the fountain of youth, and a facelift is the next best thing.

A Boost in Self-Esteem

A plastic surgeon can also recognize a patient’s mental and emotional needs. Many of the people who seek facelift surgeries do so because they want to improve their self-esteem.
