Get any dental work that you are unable to post-pone out of the way. It is generally recommended that patients who require dental work following their thread lift wait at least two weeks. Other than that, thread lifts do not require preparation other than your initial consultation.
The thread lift is one of few facelift procedures which can either be easily tightened or removed completely. Most clients are satisfied with their results, but in the unlikely event the threads are removed, your face will return to its pre-op appearance.
Local anesthetic will be applied to the treated area, so you will be comfortable throughout your face thread lift. Your doctor will then use a cannula to insert the PDO threads into the appropriate layer of skin. Some discomfort or swelling may occur but will subside within a couple days.
