Also known as rhytidectomy, Facelift surgery is the procedure to lift and tighten the underlying muscles of the face in order to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and other signs of aging in addition to create more aesthetically pleasing facial contours.
In addition to lifting and tightening , the surgery also involves removal of excess fats and loosened skin from the face. Depending on the requirement the doctor suggests a full or mini face lift which as the name suggests are detailed and miniature version of the face lift surgery.

- Thread- Face lifts
A more advanced and less invasive alternative to the traditional facelift surgery, thread facelifts can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck faster and with relatively less risk as compared to the conventional methodology.
The key to success of thread face lifts lies in the usage of special threads which hold the repositioned skin and facial tissue in place after the surgery has been done.
In a Contour ThreadLift™, clear threads are used to further minimize any signs of the surgery thus done.
The procedure involves insertion of fine threads into the face through tiny incision made in the target areas. These threads get attached to the skin tissues and are then pulled back to lift up the said tissues and hence smoothen the face. The results are almost instantaneous.
The biggest benefit is that the patients are kept conscious during the thread lift and hence they can share their inputs on the kind of pull up they would want. The pull being done, the threads are then knotted which get hidden within the skin itself and hence whatever scarring, if any is virtually invisible.
