Facial surgery - APTOS treatment
A quick and easy method of facial surgeries, it ensures the fresh look of the face. You can get rid of your tired face with this treatment. The loose skin and facial contours – like the eyebrows, lips – can be restored with the implanted special APTOS thread during the facial surgery. Fat tissues atrophy with aging, they lose their original tightness and fullness, which leads to the appearance of loose skin. The skin sags due to the constant decrease of fullness.
The optimal APTOS treatment is suitable to decrease early aging, restore the structure and fullness of the face. The thread is surrounded with delicate scab in which the small tines of the thread can hold onto and fix its position.
General face-lifting is a very consuming surgery, which causes bigger scabs and it needs a longer recovery time, which prevents you from going back to work in a short time.
The sagging facial contours are fixed in a much tighter and more youthful position with the APTOS thread.
We perform the APTOS surgery with local anaesthesia, often with the use of sedative and painkiller.
Rare complications of APTOS treatment:
