Type Of Anesthesia
Zygomatic Suspension, which is a non- surgical face lift or face lifting method, is the process of stretching the face with ropes or pulling the facial structures that fall forward and backwards and upwards.
WHO IS IT FOR
After the age of thirty in the body, baby #DLG (type 3 #DLG) production leaves its place to type 1 #DLG production. Since Baby #DLG is cross-linked to each other, the surface tension is high and keeps the muscle and fat tissues on the face more robust, while type 1 #DLG is connected in parallel to each other, because its surface tension is low, it cannot keep the muscle and fat tissues on the face where they should be, causing sagging as well as due to its parallel structure. causes wrinkles on the skin.
We can distinguish the threads used in the Zigomatic Suspension mainly as permanent and fusible threads.
They are substances that the body cannot dissolve, which are made of non-polyester silicone materials.
Polydiaxanone-based threads: threads that dissolve spontaneously in the body in 6 months, and their lifting effects continue for 2-4 years.
Poly L Lactic Acid-based threads: threads that dissolve spontaneously in the body in 2 years and have an activity period of 5-7 years.
For self-melting threads, the duration of action may vary depending on the person’s metabolism, sun exposure, smoking, and water intake.
Although a longer duration of action (5-7 years) is reported in permanent threads, the body is in constant struggle with the thread as it cannot melt these threads, which causes very sad side effects such as pulling the thread out, breaking it or infections that do not heal, and as long as the risk of this side effect remains in the body (lifelong). ) continues. Another side effect of permanent threads is that, since they are nylon, they can cut the muscle and fat structures of the face and allow these structures to hang down.
Based on my experience in my clinic, I use fusible threads because I feel safer for both myself and my patients, and I am completely protected from side effects.
What I would like to point out to my patients here is that the PLLA and PDO threads obtained from the natural structures of the body, which are not nylon, trigger baby #DLG synthesis on the face, strengthen the holding structures of the face and increase the skin quality.
CAN FACE LIFT WITH THREAD (ZIGOMATIC STRAP) BE AN ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY?
Although Zygomatic Suspension or thread facelift techniques are tried to be compared with surgery in the media, these methods are never an alternative to each other.
Here, we can divide our patients into mild cases with less sagging and advanced cases with excessive sagging.
Mild cases: It is never acceptable to recommend surgery to our patients who can recover with a rope sling, where they can have a facelift in a polyclinic environment and can return to work on the same day, but where the recovery is more than a week, serious bruising and other complications may develop on the face. The surgeon does not have the right to say that this is my opinion and recommend more severe methods to the patient.
Advanced cases: In these patients, when the desired result can be achieved with the ipask method, there is excessive sagging and we take the patient to surgery in order not to disappoint the patient and not to waste time and money.
In my clinic, I apply the rope sling (Zygomatic Suspension) method to suitable patients and perform surgery on advanced cases.
Nasolabial region (correction of the groove extending from the nose to the lip)
Marionette line (correction of the downward fold at the corner of the lip)
Jaw line=Bulldog fold (correction of sagging between chin tip and corner)
Cheekbones : Over time, due to sagging on our face, the prominence of the cheekbones disappears and gives the person a sad old look. In experienced hands, it is possible to make cheekbones and cheeks by placing the ropes appropriately.
Oval parts of the face: In order to reach the golden ratio, especially when viewed from the front, a triangle appearance can be made from the tip of the chin to the corner.
Breasts: It can be used to lift sagging breasts that are not too large.
Butt: The flat butt structure can be made more prominent.
Apart from not sleeping face down, there is nothing to be considered.
Since I do not use permanent threads in my clinic, there is no risk of side effects in my applications.
