A patient asked 3 years ago
Thread lift went wrong ?? I was told the right side of my face is slightly bigger and flabby then my left. Right after the procedure I was shocked to see my face out of shape. Please advise me is this normal? Because the practitioner told me this is normal and will take 2 weeks to 1 month for a full recovery and with my neck, it will works slowly to get firm. I am very upset and confused and scare. Please advise me what should I do?

Concerns with Results Following Thread/PRP

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Swelling is very common following these types of procedures and most of the issues you are experiencing can be related to swelling (which is often uneven). Unless you see other warning signs (redness, tenderness, heat, etc) or if the swelling gets worse, you should be patient and allow the healing to continue. All the swelling is expected to resolve within two weeks and at that time you will be able to evaluate the final results and in case of any concerns then, you should do a follow up with your physician for reevaluation and correction if needed. At this time, please do not worry about the aesthetic look of the results as it is two early. I hope it helps and good luck!
