Rediscover Your Beauty With Thread Lifts
You can get a more youthful look at BEAUTY by BUFORD without invasive surgery. Dr. Gregory Buford offers non-surgical thread lifts to tighten your skin and restore natural beauty.
Lift, Tighten, & Rejuvenate
Thread lifts, also known as suture lifts, are a great way to revitalize your look. This minimally-invasive treatment will tighten loose skin and boost your confidence. That means you can turn back the clock to look and feel your best!
This innovative treatment involves placing medical-grade dissolvable threads beneath the skin's surface for a subtle but noticeable lifting effect. The threads stimulate collagen production, improving skin elasticity for a more youthful appearance.
How Thread Lifts Work
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Buford at our office in Lone Tree. During this consultation, you'll discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations for the procedure. Dr. Buford will evaluate your skin and determine if a suture lift is your best option.
Preparing for the Procedure
Before your procedure, we'll advise you to avoid certain medications and supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding. You should also stop smoking, as it can affect the healing process.
Numbing & Marking the Treatment Area
On the day of the procedure, Dr. Buford will cleanse your face and administer a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Once the area is numb, he'll mark the areas where the threads will be inserted.
Dr. Buford will make tiny incisions to minimize visibility, usually around the hairline or behind the ear. Next, he'll insert the threads into the skin using a thin needle or cannula.
The threads used in a suture lift use a dissolvable material called polydioxanone (PDO). These threads have tiny barbs or cones that help anchor the skin and provide the lifting effect.
Lifting & Tightening
After inserting the treads, Dr. Buford will lift and reposition the skin to get the desired lift and contour. He'll also trim the excess thread ends.
Recovery & Aftercare
After the procedure, you may experience some mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort. This should subside within a few days to a week.
You'll need to avoid strenuous activities, excessive facial movements, and sleeping on your side or stomach for a certain period. Dr. Buford will give you specific aftercare instructions tailored to your needs after your procedure.
Results & Follow-Up
The results of a thread lift are visible immediately, but they will continue to improve as the threads stimulate collagen production and provide ongoing lifting and tightening effects.
The threads dissolve over time, usually within six to nine months, but the results last up to a year or more. You'll have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Buford to check on your results and make any adjustments as necessary.
Everyone responds to treatment differently, so the results of thread lifts vary by patient. Dr. Buford creates a personalized plan and follow-up care guidelines for each unique case, so you'll get the best results.
The Benefits of Thread Lifts
Thread lifts have several benefits to improve your look and boost your confidence.
Restored Facial Contours
Thread lifts effectively restore facial contours by lifting sagging skin. You'll get a more defined jawline, lifted cheeks, and reduced jowls for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Stimulated Collagen Production
By stimulating collagen production, thread lifts promote skin rejuvenation from within. That means you'll see improved skin elasticity, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and a smoother, more youthful complexion.
Thread lifts deliver natural-looking results, enhancing your unique beauty without altering your facial features. The subtle lift you'll get through this procedure leaves you looking refreshed and revitalized, not "overdone."
Do You Need a Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are a great option to address mild to moderate sagging skin. If you're looking to lift and tighten areas such as the cheeks, jowls, neck, or brows without invasive surgery, thread lifts may be an excellent option.
