What Is Facial Lifting With Ropes?

Face lifting with ropes, also known as a thread lift or French lift, is a non-surgical alternative to a traditional face lift. Instead of scalpels and knives, ropes of proteins and synthetic materials are used to obtain the same objective of eliminating facial and necklines. Facial elasticity decreases with time because of gravity and our bodies ageing. As collagen production decreases as we get older, the fat reservoir in the face melts, with the skin starting to sag and become loose. Whilst this can happen anywhere on the body, it is most noticeable on the face and neck where the skin is thinner and can’t be as easily covered up.

Many people want to achieve a youthful complexion for longer, so when the skin in these areas begins to show the signs of ageing, there are many treatments available to help. However, as most of these require surgery to achieve, a face lift with rope provides a great alternative. If you have concerns about going under the knife, a rope face lift could be of interest to you. Whilst the name may intrigue, the process of having a face lift with rope is simple and can be performed quickly by our expert surgeons.

The Types Of Rope Used In A Rope Face Lift Turkey

There are two types of rope that are used when performing a face lift with rope, which are

Fusible threads

Permanent ropes

Permanent ropes are made from synthetic sutures that stay under the skin after the rope face lift is completed. Fusible threads use biocompatible material that means over time they will be reabsorbed by the body, dissolving after a number of months. During consultation, you will be advised of which type of rope will provide the desired results you want.

Materials Of Ropes For A Face Lift With Rope

The material used in the ropes can differ depending on the requirements needed. All are safe to use and compatible with human tissue. The material of the ropes can be made from:








PDO, for example, can be safely absorbed by the body so is favoured for temporary face lift over a few months. When they are absorbed, this stimulates the production of collagen under the skin. When permanent ropes are used made from silicon or polyester, for example, these stay under the skin. Using biocompatible rope has become more popular over the years as the technique has been perfected. When rope face lifts were first conceived, the only option available was the use of permanent ropes. With more options for patients to receive a non-surgical face lift, there has never been a better time to undergo this procedure.

The Procedure For A Rope Face Lift

The procedure of a rope face lift is straightforward and involves the insertion of threads with small cones or graspers on them under the skin. These are inserted using a large needle, the areas of which are marked by the surgeon. Local anaesthesia is used to numb the parts of your face and neck and the area is cleaned to be sterile. The ropes are placed approximately 5mm under the skin’s surface and attach to the skin so that it can be firmed. Once they are stitched in place, the ropes are cut leaving the patient with the finished result.

The procedure can be performed quickly and there is minimal downtime to be experienced. The medical team will provide pain relief and your aftercare schedule, but you should be able to resume normal daily activities quickly.
