What are the risks of a thread lift?
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and you will have to weigh the potential benefits in achieving your goals with the risks and potential complications of a thread lift. Only you can make that decision for yourself.
You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.
Possible thread lift risks include:
- Anesthesia risks
- Difficulty opening your mouth (usually temporary)
- Extrusion of a thread
- Pain, which could persist
- Sensitivity to sun or other bright light
- Swelling and bruising
- Unfavorable result
These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.
