Non surgical Facelift with permanent tensor threads Paris

Permanent tensor threads are one type of face lift. It is a medical face lift that is a non-surgical alternative to the cervical face lift.

The tensor threads allow for a face lift without surgery and without scars. They are indicated in addition to hyaluronic acid and botox injections to treat the central and lower parts of the face.

It is a simple and effective technique that uses very fine notched threads to treat sagging skin on the face and neck.

 They present very few risks when they are applied by a specialist plastic surgeon.

The placement of permanent tightening sutures takes place in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. The aftermath is relatively simple, and you can resume your activities after a few days.

The results of permanent tightening threads are noticeable after 15 days, and their effects last several years.

We do not use absorbable threads because we are not convinced by this technique of aesthetic medicine.

This medical information sheet was written in May 2021 by Dr. Ralph ABBOU who is an aesthetic surgeon in Paris specializing in face lifting.

What are the objectives of permanent tensor threads?

Permanent tensor threads are intended for all patients who wish to fight effectively against the overall sagging of the skin of the face, without having recourse to a surgical facelift, and who want a real and natural result.

Who are facial tensor threads intended for ?

Permanent tensor threads are intended for all patients who wish to treat sagging of the face without surgery.

The average age of the patients who consult us for this treatment is 50 years old. The youngest patient is 32 years old and the oldest is 78 years old.

The permanent threads help to fight the sagging of the skin and muscles. They allow the plastic surgeon to reposition the volumes of the face in the treated area and to put the skin back in tension to achieve a facelift without surgery or medical facelift.

Tensor threads allow for the rejuvenation of the skin and volumes of the following areas:

  • Eyebrows, eyes and eyelids
  • Cheekbones
  • Cheeks
  • Naso genian folds
  • Jowls
  • Chin
  • Neck

Tensor sutures are not effective for tightening the silhouette, the buttocks, the thighs, the stomach and the treatment of the nose.

How is the installation of the tensor threads carried out?

The first step is a medical consultation to analyze your face:

  • Loss of volume
  • Loose skin and sagging tissue
  • Excess skin
  • Quality of facial skin
  • Wrinkles on the face and neck

At the end of the medical consultation, we determine a treatment plan (number of threads, position of the threads…) adapted to your case according to your needs.

Then, the placement of the threads is done during a second consultation and lasts about an (1) hour.

No specific preparation is necessary prior to the placement of the threads. Only a local anesthetic is required at the entry and exit points of the wire.

The sutures are inserted under sterile conditions through the skin, into the subcutaneous tissue (about 5 mm deep). No incision is made, the suture is inserted with a needle and held in place with cones.

It is possible to combine this treatment with other aesthetic medicine treatments :

After the placement of the sutures, there is no dressing.

In the following days, you will present :

  • Edema (swelling of the face)
  • Bruises sometimes
  • Discomfort in certain facial movements

All these side effects will gradually disappear in about 7 to 10 days.

This is why we recommend that you rest for a few days after the placement of the sutures, especially for your professional activity. You can resume your daily activities the day after the procedure.

The follow-up consultation with your plastic surgeon takes place 15 days later.

How many tensor threads are usually placed on the face?

On the face, it is common to place 2 or 3 threads on each side of the face. It all depends on your face and your wishes. A precise analysis will be made during a medical consultation.

What areas of the face can be treated with this method ?

  • The tail of the eyebrow (eyebrow threaders)
  • Cheekbones
  • Oval of the face
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Bitter folds

It is important to avoid radiofrequency and HIFU sessions on the areas where the tightening threads are located because the heating of the skin and therefore of the threads will cause them to lose their ability to hold on.
