There is an alternative to the classic facelift, with which we have made very good experiences in wrinkle treatment in our practice: The suture lift, also called “happy lift”. In this very gentle lifting method, we tighten the sagging skin with very small threads. All you need is a local anaesthesia. We do not interfere with the facial contour with suture lifting.
Self-sufficient regeneration of the tissue after suture lifting
The best thing about it: On the one hand, the punctures and sutures stimulate the formation of new connective tissue. And on the other hand, the suture, through its structure and shape, additionally lifts lax tissue. As a result, the skin regenerates (almost) by itself, it becomes tighter and firmer. At the same time, wrinkles and
jowls disappear. This treatment is similar to wrinkle injection with fillers, e.g. an addition of Sculptra or even autologous fat. Therefore, there is virtually no downtime, only sports and sauna should pause for about a week.
Skin rejuvenation by suture lifting: easy and low risk
The happy-lift is uncomplicated, painless and virtually without the risk of side effects. The effect lasts for about one to two years and can be repeated at any time. This treatment is especially suitable for younger patients. Moderate skin redundancy can be easily and safely remedied. The procedure can be optimized by combining it with additional fillers.
