We are seeing more and more patients who have sought us out after a bad experience with the Thread Lift. Though the advertising is very slick for this procedure, you can’t miss the negative internet blogs, etc. from dissatisfied patients. I feel our techniques for minimal incision face lifts provide a unsurpassed natural look with small incisions and a very fast recovery. Additionally, our patients want a procedure that is going to last not just 2 or 3 years, but 10 -12. Often local anesthesia is all that is needed for the procedure. Most return to work in 1 – 2 weeks. It is very satisfying for me to see my patients turn ‘back the clock’ 10-15 years with a 2 1/2 hour procedure.
