Body Threadlift Singapore

What is body threadlifting and how is it performed?

Body threadlifting is a minimally-invasive method of lifting excess skin in various areas of the body, including the arms, legs and tummy. It is performed through tiny, well-hidden puncture holes in the skin using slow-absorbing suture material with small barbs, and usually placed in the plane just below the skin. The procedure is performed under controlled, sterile conditions with local anaesthesia in the comfortable clinic procedure room. Pain is minimal and brief, and the procedure has minimal bruising and downtime.

Who is a suitable candidate?

Body threadlifting is specifically for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity at various parts of the body, without too much excess fat. It can also be combined with fat removal procedures such as liposuction. It is particularly attractive to those who prefer minimal downtime, and are willing to accept a result which lasts one to two years at the most. It can be repeated multiple times.

What are the pros and cons of body threadlifts compared to other techniques?

The benefits of threadlifts are that they can be done in the clinic, do not involve surgical incisions and involve minimal downtime, with little bruising or swelling. The main drawback of facial threadlifts are that results last 1 to 2 years at the most. In addition, if not placed well, there may be complications such as infection, asymmetry and palpable threads, though these are rare. Other forms of minimally-invasive facelifts such as HIFU can avoid these issues, but may not achieve as significant a result, while surgical procedures offer more accurate and longer lasting results.
