Aptos Thread lifts are used for the following improvements in the ageing sagging face & neck:

  • Face Lift / Neck Lift / Skin Tightening
  • Reposition sagging cheeks
  • Brow lifting
  • Marionette lines correction
  • Jowling correction
  • Lip lines reduction & lip shaping
  • Adjusting asymmetric brows & face

Due to the unique design of the specially designed and patented barbs of the APTOS FACE THREADS, the surrounding tissues act to hold the threads in place without the need for visible scars. For the mid-face procedure, the surgeon makes a tiny incision close to the ear and the threads are advanced along the previously marked contours toward the chin and jaw line thus creating a firm hold on the underlying tissues without causing additional trauma. The barbs do the work of holding & facelifting by being fixated to tissue as they are softly contoured into place.

Aptos Threads are available at Aptos Threads Lifts Sydney CBD, Wahroonga, Perth, Canberra, Adelaide & Melbourne Clinics.

Local anaesthesia with some mild sedatives are used. The procedure duration depends on the number of Aptos Face Threads to be implanted. Most of the threadlift procedures take between 30 to 60 minutes.

Aptos Threads are a lunch-time procedure, and are performed under local anaesthetic. There are no incisions, stitches, bruises, scars or bandages. Most patients can return to work and light exercise on the next day. More aggressive exercise is usually 1 to 2 weeks post treatment.

Sometimes mild soreness or light pain can occur, which can be treated with oral analgesic. Mild bruising is very uncommon. There is no incisions or dimpling. Cold ice compresses are recommended for the first 2 hours after the procedure. Dr Beaini will explain fully before you have the procedure.

Unlike conventional thread “sutures”, which are smooth, Aptos Absorbable Threads have tiny barbs or cogs. Unlike other older barbed threads, Aptos threads are the only threads with multidirectional barbs, hence better uniform grip, wich results in no dimpling and no bandaging post treatment.
