Face lift by tensor wire, without surgery

Face lift by tensor wire, without surgery

 

Solve facial sagging with a reversible non-surgical facelift providing 5-10 year rejuvenation

Over time the signs accumulate on the face: appearance of jowls, nasolabial folds, folds of bitterness and sagging cheekbones are inevitable.

This is partly due to a shift in facial fat, which increases slightly in volume with age, and which tends to shift under the effect of gravity. With the consequence of a rupture of the oval of the face.

Tensor threads (or notched threads or suspension threads)

The non-absorbable barbed suture consists of a polyester core yarn with a silicone wrap. The resorbable barbed threads are generally composed of L-polylactic acid, completely resorbable in 1 year.

These biocompatible materials, which have been used for more than 50 years in medicine, guarantee a reaction-free intervention.

Notches of reduced sizes distributed on the wire allow to hang the fabrics while respecting them. Very fine, absolutely discreet, they will allow you to relocate the various areas of the face to be treated.

Their constitution makes it easy to locate them with an ultrasound and, if necessary, they can be easily removed at any time. The face will then return to its initial configuration.

The results

The overall results, obtained without surgery, are spectacular: a rejuvenation of the face generally estimated between 5 to 10 years. This is a natural embellishment.

The durability of non-absorbable sutures is very high with almost zero loss of effectiveness and visible effects for 4 to 5 years.

Absorbable sutures disappear completely within a year.

The threads used are undetectable, of absolute discretion, and they can be placed on all patients from 30 to 60 years old, regardless of skin type, history of facelifts, smokers or non-smokers. .

Sequence of a laying of notched wires

The technique of laying tensor threads is essential for the quality and durability of the result.

What are the key points?

Firstly two notched wires are implanted and positioned on either side of the lower half of the patient's face, positioned in the areas of fat concerned, in order to lift the tissues without creating folds or dimples.

Next, two other tensor threads are implanted on each side of the scalp. They will bind to the wires previously placed at the level of the cheeks and going up towards the top of the skull create the tension which will guarantee the correct positioning of the cheeks.

The positioning of the threads by Dr. Desouches and their interaction, the resulting forces, is therefore essential for the quality and naturalness of the result obtained.

A simple local anesthetic is performed before each intervention. Dr. Desouches will use a very fine needle allowing him to inject the product superficially. No risk of injury is to be feared, the procedure lasts approximately 60 to 90 minutes.

The initial consultation

The initial consultation is an opportunity to examine the face, discuss the defects to be corrected and explain the expected results.

Dr. Desouches will advise you and specify the limits of the treatment if they concern you, such as:

  • The loss of elasticity due to the aging of the deep layers of the skin of the face; in some cases only surgical lifting is indicated,
  • Aging of the superficial layers of the skin of the face with the presence of deep wrinkles; in this case, a prior skin rejuvenation treatment may be necessary.

Finally, this consultation makes it possible to look for situations or antecedents that may require rules of caution.

Complications

As with any aesthetic medicine action, certain reactions may occur such as swelling, hematoma, itching, sensitivity at the sites where the tensor threads are placed, which generally resolve in a few days.

Post-operative follow-up

The postoperative course is generally painless. Edema may appear and usually takes between 3 and 5 days to subside.

After a laying of notched threads the patient must observe a rest period of 7 days.
