Face and neck lifting by filaments (filiform lifting)

Suture facelifting is aimed at the elimination of age-related changes in case the cosmetic procedures do not give the desired effect, and there are no indications for surgery. The technique involves introduction of aptos sutures into the skin which have special notches and promote tissue fixation.

During the procedure, we use the aptos sutures made of polypropylene. These materials are used in surgery for over 50 years. These sutures do not resolve after the introduction; they do not cause allergies and rejection.

Indications for lifting

  • malar ptosis of the face;
  • rugosity in the corners of the mouth;
  • sagging cheeks;
  • laxity of the neck;
  • omission of the eyebrows outer corners;
  • expressed nasolabial furrow;
  • formation of the second jaw.

Contraindications

  • inflammation in the area of ​​intervention;
  • bleeding disorder;
  • thick skin;
  • the tendency to form keloids;
  • pregnancy and lactation;
  • oncology.

Possible complications

Since this correction involves fairly serious intervention, what is further complicated by the fact that the administration is performed blindly, bruising and swelling is observed after the session. It takes 2-3 days. There may also be skin roughness that is formed by the tension of sutures of varying intensity. Within 7 days, the skin adapts and the bumps disappear. Violation of facial expressions can occur as a result of the anesthetic action. If the effect is persistent and does not pass in 3-4 days, then you may have a constriction of nerve fibers. In this case you should consult a doctor. There may also be a contouring of the suture - its allocation under the skin. It occurs due to a poor quality of the procedure. Migration may occur when using a smooth material or in the case of weak skin connective tissue. The result is the marked asymmetry.

In order to minimize the risk of complications, trust the care of your beauty to trusted clinics. Carefully examine photos of the patients before and after the procedure and read the reviews. Also, do not be tempted to make the lifting at a too low a price. A cost for professional surgeon services cannot be low.

Preparing and conducting of the suture lifting

Correction is performed under local anesthesia. The small puncture is made in the temporal area, then the needle with the suture is injected through it; it passes below the skin and comes out on the other area. After that the tension in the direction opposite to the introduction is made for locking the notches in the tissues. After this, the ends are being cut off and we put on a bandage.

Rehabilitation period

Within two weeks after the correction you should limit mimic facial movements. It is necessary to refrain from receiving the hot and solid food for 1-2 days. Sleeping on the back is recommended on a high pillow to prevent skin contact with any surfaces and to minimize the probability of occurrence of edema. You should abandon the sauna, bath and solarium and limit physical activity for a month. During the recovery period, buildup of the collagen and elastin around fibers occurs, which ensures a reliable fixation.

Expected result

Lifting effect is visible immediately after the treatment and is enhanced for several months. This procedure reduces the skin sagging, expressed wrinkles are smoothed, face oval lifting occurs, slowing of the aging process takes place. In this case, the scars and traces of intervention are absent on the skin.
