About this book

This book is a thorough guide on how to perform safe and effective thread-lifting procedures as a less invasive approach to rejuvenation of the face. The opening chapters explain the importance of the fixation technique, describe the facial and the pinch anatomy, and discuss the characteristics of absorbable threads. Clear descriptions are then offered of the basic technique employed for thread lifting, as well as techniques applicable for each thread type and techniques specific to each anatomic area. Understanding is aided by the inclusion of an abundance of illustrations depicting anatomy and technique. Potential complications and their management are systematically explained, and a new approach to outcome evaluation is also presented. The Art and Science of Thread Lifting will help plastic surgeons and dermatologists at all levels of experience to achieve the best possible outcomes in individual patients.
