What is an Anti-Gravity Face and Neck Lift?

A nonsurgical Facelift and/or Necklift with permanent tensor threads can take years off your appearance! And for a very long time! The result is a fresh, taut face and/or neck, and a much more youthful appearance. If it is natural to want to look youthful at any age, but that becomes especially challenging after 40!

This is why our Anti-Gravity Face and/or Neck Lift can give you what you need to enhance and provide a youthful appearance, all while having the benefit off achieving results that last for many years. Dissolvable threads can give a nice result when you are a younger patient with minimum and localized skin dropping, however they are not enough if you are much older with aging and sagging skin!

Permanent tensor threads will give you the results and the durability you want without needing to undergo a complete surgical Facelift! Our Anti-Gravity Face and/or Neck Lift offers to shave years away regardless of your gender!

The Anti-Gravity Lift is a fairly new technique that was developed in Europe. This minimally invasive technique is used to lift and reposition sagging mid-face tissue. It offers a significantly greater and more permanent lift due to the unique tensor threads which give strong traction when lifting the soft tissue. The tensor threads are placed under the skin in a vertical axis, the axis that the tissues were following at their origin, in the youth of the face. This is what will give the patient a young appearance. The Anti-Gravity lift technique allows to complete the face lifting by acting on the lower part of the oval of the face. The neck Anti-Gravity can be added to the procedure and will allow to complete the look of a firmer and more youthful appearance. The neck zone, if left without treatments, will completely give away your age as well! Previous generations of threads were not efficient enough. Now, the new generation of anti-gravity threads allow to obtain a result that will please the patient first and doctor as well.

Why an Anti-Gravity Face and/or Neck Lift?

Because the face undergoes a moderate loss of certain fatty tissues; these tissues keep the face more plumped and youthful. All the way up to 80 years old, we can observe a slight volume loss of the total fat, deep and superficial fat, under the skin. The falling-down of the oval shape of the face, the slight drop of the checks, the appearance of the double chin, and deeper wrinkles at the nasolabial groove and the side of the mouth.

What are the benefits of an Anti-Gravity Lift?

The Anti-Gravity Lift is effective for people that want to age gracefully or to simply put it, to achieve a younger look that will last up to 10 years! The look of “heavy” jowls is smoothed out, and the oval shape of the face is tighter. The nasolabial groove is nicely blurred, and the cheekbones naturally find their original position without enlarging the face. This lifting technique allows to reposition the eye brows that have drooped/dropped with the years. The Lift allows to open the look of the eyes. The lifting of the face will have a very slight impact of providing a small lift on the neck. It is possible to go further and treat the neck by positioning 2 to 4 permanent threads around the neck.

Am I the ideal patient for an Anti-Gravity Lift?

If you are over 40 years old and have started experiencing facial sagging and volume loss in the shape of the oval of your face, then you will benefit from the Anti-Gravity lift.

 

Does an Anti-Gravity Lift require a general anesthetic or hospitalization?

The Anti-Gravity lift is performed under local anesthetic in the practice of your surgeon without the need of hospitalization.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes approximately 3 hours for the face and less than 2 hours for the neck.

What about the results?

Your appearance is younger, fresher, happier and the tired look is erased from the face. This rejuvenation keeps all your expressions alive, with the benefit of time on your side. Your look is natural and NOT stretched whatsoever! And the same younger look that will last years is now possible for your neck. Do not allow your neck to give away your age!

What areas can be done?

There are 4 areas that are usually done for the face. The cheeks are lifted up and out, the nasolabial groove is blurred and smoothed, the “jowls” are elevated and reduced, and the neckline and jaw line are tightened. The neck lift can be added to the procedure that pulls the fallen skin back up and reduces the wrinkling around the neck.

Is there any scarring?

There is absolutely no cutting what-so-ever, it is strictly performed with needles and tensor threads only, which leaves no visible scars. It is a non-surgical technique performed with pointed non-cutting needles. What it means is that it will not require any cutting (scalpel) and will not have any risks of scaring. The tensor thread is bio-compatible and will not represent any risk of allergy.

Is it reversible?

Yes, it is. There is no reason that those permanent tensor threads would need to be removed. However, it is always possible to remove the tensor threads, even years later. When the tensor threads are removed, your face will simply find back its initial appearance. It would be performed by your surgeon under a local anesthesia. It will not leave any traces or scarring on the face of the patient.

 

What is the recovery time, and will there be significant bruising?

Because we use local anesthesia, there is moderate amounts of swelling immediately after the procedure. About 70% of this swelling is usually gone by the next morning. We ask all our patients to take Arnica Montana and Kiwi fruit for one week prior to the procedure and one week afterwards. This minimizes bruising to the point that in two weeks almost all of the bruising is gone. Please be sure you do not take any aspirin or blood thinners for one week prior to the procedure.

 

What is the cost compared to standard face-lifting?

The cost is substantially less than the usual Surgical Facelift. It varies depending on how many areas you wish to have treated. It generally runs about half to a third as much as standard invasive cutting surgery.
