TWO-STITCH MINI FACE LIFT

INTRODUCTION

The 2 Stitch Mini Facelift is a minimally invasive procedure which can be carried out safely under local anesthesia. It has evolved from the 1 Stitch Facelift and has an improved longetivity as it involves the deeper structures. The differences between the 2 Stitch Facelift and the 1 Stitch Facelift are summarised below:

This mini Facelift is not to be confused with thread lifts ( which are sometimes called a 1 Stitch Facelift). Thread lifts involve the use of barbed threads of various description, with no removal of excess skins and the duration of the results are dependent on the scarring and fibrosis that follow.

This is a great procedure for patients who want a more subtle result and who are not ready for a full facelift. It is performed under local anaesthesia, takes one and a half hours to perform and patients can return back to work after 14 days. The scars are well hidden within the hairline and the junction between ears and the face. The risks of complications are less compared to a full facelift. The results are immediate but subtle and effective in lifting and tightening the skin along the cheeks and jawline.

Combined with Botox to smoothen out lines and dermal fillers to replace volume loss, the two stitch mini facelift is even more dramatic in achieving a complete facial rejuvenation.
