Frequently asked questions about eyebrows elevation surgery with tensor threads

Which patients require a brow lift?

In Clinica Sanza we recommend eyebrows elevation to patients in which the distance between the upper eyelid and the eyebrow is reduced, either on one side or both, normally the causes that generate this ptosis or fall are:

  • Patients with congenital problems that affect the situation of one or both eyebrows (Eyebrow ptosis).
  • Patients with sof accidents or surgeries that affect the position of the eyebrow.
  • Patients who due to familiar features or aging notice the tail of the eyebrow fallen, which gives an appearance of tired or sad eyes.

At what age can I consider a brow lift?

The drooping of the eyebrows is not necessarily a problem linked to aging, as we have noted above the causes can be very varied so the correction can be carried out at any age.

Is the placement of threads to elevate the eyebrow considered a surgical intervention?

Yes. However, it is a minimally invasive procedure, which must be performed by a specialist in sterile conditions, and which can be performed under local anesthesia or occasionally with a mild sedation, it is ambulatory and with a very short recovery time.

Once the tensioning threads are in place, when will I see results?

The result is immediate and you will see it once the intervention is finished, in other cases it is possible that you will have to place the tensioning threads and wait 2 to 3 months to carry out the tension and the consequent elevation to the level that you want and it is then when you will see the definitive results.

Is it painful to place threads to raise the eyebrow?

No. Whichever technique is used, it is practically painless. At most, a certain tension and inflammation can be noticed, and it disappears after a few days and is perfectly controlled with oral anti-inflammatories.

Can I restart my daily activities after the eyebrow lift?

Indeed, after 24 to 48 hours you can resume some of your daily activities, but putting on hold intense physical exercise or contact sports for about 3 to 4 weeks.

Are there other procedures if I want a greater result?

Yes, sometimes we must elevate the eyebrows with a small incision in the temples and get more obvious and lasting results.

Frequently asked questions about tensioning threads

What are tensioning threads?

The tightening thread technique is a facial rejuvenation procedure that is used to lift the eyebrows eliminating wrinkles in the crow’s feet, lift the cheekbones diminishing the nasogenian furrows (of the mouth), and recover the neck line that is lost with the passage of time. More and more men and women are enjoying the benefits of this type of surgery, which due to its natural results and little disability have become the ideal option.

Why use tensioning threads?

The thread suspension technique responds to the need for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures using small incisions. Through this procedure we at Clinica Sanza reposition tissues that by the action of gravity, weight loss, the natural passage of time, disease or the use of certain medications have been weakened and need to be reconditioned to the structure of the face.

Who is a candidate for thread tensioners?

Facial suspension is recommended for patients with mild flaccidity. This procedure is basically indicated to elevate the forehead area, the eyebrows, improve the nasogenian grooves and slightly enhance the cheeks and neck. It is also indicated in people with illnesses that cannot undergo surgery due to their own condition and who see this as a minimally invasive option. In the same way, this is a very useful procedure for those who have suffered, for example, ptosis or drooping of the eyelid as a result of facial paralysis.

Does the threaded facial suspension technique replace facial rejuvenation surgery?

No. The technique of facial suspension with threads provides support to the superficial tissue, while the modifications in facial rejuvenation surgery or rhytidoplasty are executed in the deep structure of the face. The ritidoplasty has more lasting effects because it is a repair that involves the release of tissues, modification of fat, resection and rearrangement of excess skin.

What are the main benefits of thread tensioners?

Procedure that suspends slightly sagging tissues, leaves no scars, is done under local anesthesia and its costs are lower.

How are the threads placed?

They are biocompatible threads of high strength polypropylene, which have a surface that helps them to anchor in the tissues and thus be able to lift and tense them. Many are resorbable, i.e. the body eliminates them but the result is preserved thanks to the retraction caused in the tissue itself.

What type of anesthesia is used?

One of the benefits of facial suspension is that it uses local anesthesia. When other techniques are performed additionally, another type of sedation may be considered.

How’s the post-op? Does it hurt a lot?

This technique is minimally incapacitating and minimally painful. A small bandage will be worn for 24 hours, and when removed there may be slight swelling and sometimes the presence of small bruises, the incorporation into normal activities on average is the 4th day. Some differences may be observed as the tissues adapt to the new position, which is completely normal and will resolve within a few days.

How is this procedure performed?

In order to place the tensioning threads in Clinica Sanza we demarcate the area to be treated, we place the local anesthesia and immediately introduce a small cannula in certain points related to the areas to be lifted, where it fixes the supporting threads. The threads are placed under the skin, and thanks to their toothed traction surface in the form of microscopic anchors, there is an immediate lifting effect.

How long does the procedure take and what anesthesia is used?

The procedure itself can last from 30 minutes to an hour, is performed outpatient and after that the patient can return home.
