I’m going to an important event next month and my face needs a lift. I’m thinking of having surgery but would prefer to do this during the winter months. Is there something I can do in the meantime? I don’t want fillers.
Said to be the nearest thing to a surgical lift, the Suspension Lift is the latest way to replace going under the knife. The procedure, which takes less than an hour and gives instant results, uses absorbable PDO (Polydioxanone) threads which have been used in medicine for over 30 year. Using local anaesthetic, tiny incisions are made under the jawline and the sutures are inserted with a special needle vertically and horizontally, which form a trellis effect. This lifts the skin up and holds it in place. PDO also has properties that stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin, so the procedure will have a rejuvenating effect on skin over the following months. There may be some bruising and mild swelling for up to seven days but this is easily disguised using mineral make up. Results will last up to eighteen months to two years depending on your skin condition and the number of threads used and you may find that you don’t need surgery after all. Cost from £1500.
