    Thread lift anyone? 10th Mar 17 at 1:16 PM

    I've been looking into having this treatment done to improve the sagging around my jaws but I'm quite confused with the no. of clinics offering it and I don't know how to choose.

    Also in some I have to pay 100 only for the consultation which seems a bit steep! (Skin clinics for example which I like because I think they will have lots of experience).

    Any experiences out there?

    Yes I've had one.

    In 2006 I had to have surgery to remove a basal cell carcinoma from my face. It left my face slightly lopsided. Wasn't too bad at first but over the years it became more noticeable. So I had a threadlift just over a year ago.

    By putting more threads on one side It realigned my face and also tightened up the jawline.

    I am very pleased with the results. It felt a bit "odd" for a couple of days, with a slight stinging sensation a couple of times, but I think that might have been down to cold weather.

    My face always hurts a bit in cold weather, especially on the site of the cancer scar so I wasn't too troubled.

    I had just one tiny bruise which faded within a couple of days. I've had worse bruising after a visit to the dentist. I bruise very easily.

    So yes really pleased. The actual procedure didn't hurt at all because I was well numbed up - just a slight sensation of "pulling".
