Positive midface rejuvenation with mesh suspension thread

(HealthDay)—Midface rejuvenation using novel modified mesh suspension thread produces positive aesthetic results and minimal complications, according to a small study published online April 18 in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.

So-Eun Han, M.D., from Inje University in Goyang, South Korea, and colleagues evaluated midface using novel modified suspension thread in 20 female patients undergoing REEBORN lifting.

The researchers found that mean operation time was 40 minutes. There were two minor surgery-related complications. At six months after thread lifting, significant improvement in wrinkle severity was seen (P < 0.0001). Patients reported high satisfaction with surgical results (≥90 percent) and procedure (≥80 percent).

"We are expected to provide sufficient holding power apart from cogs; in addition, fixation mesh is ensured by the implantable distal mesh that provides long lasting maintenance in thread lifting rejuvenation," the authors write.
