Read the new article "Outcomes in thread lift for face, neck, and nose. A prospective chart review study with Aptos" by Samad Rezaee Khiabanloo MD, Reza Nabie MD, Ezatollah Aalipour MPH published in Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology*
To evaluate the surgical efficacy and outcomes related to mid-face, mandible, neck (and double chin), and nose lifting with Aptos thread lift in this prospective review chart study, a total of 58 patients were included (from July 2018 to July 2019). All participants underwent facial thread lifting using Aptos. The patients were followed up first week, third, and sixth month after lifting surgery. Outcomes were assessed by two surgeons and patients based on the GAIS score. All data were analyzed by SPSS‐17 software with chi‐square test.
The results showed that satisfaction in patients and surgeons increased over time (after 6 months). Postoperative (minor) complications were also assessed and ecchymosis was found to be the most common complication. However, the proportion of postoperative complications was relatively low.
