One stitch facelift

I was first introduced to the idea of the technique by Mr Paul Levick, a Plastic Surgeon colleague of mine who had used it for many years in retightening facelifts. I then came across a modification of the technique by Dr R Calambria, a Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon who made use of the skin that is normally discarded to provide a stronger and more lasting effect.I have since modified it myself by using a barbed suture(thread) which provides better tightening of the skin without the need for knots. This allows easier stitching, less puckering and fewer problems with the knots from traditional sutures.This is a great procedure for patients concerned about downtime. It is performed under local anaesthesia, takes less than an hour to perform and patients can return back to work between 3 to 7 days. The scars are well hidden within the hairline and the risks of complications are minimal 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 anti- wrikle injections to lift and smoothen out lines and dermal fillers to replace volume loss, the one stitch facelift is even more dramatic in completing a true non surgical facelift.
