Background: Nonsurgical facial rejuvenation is the Holy Grail of aesthetic surgery and has stimulated a decades-long, if not centuries-long, search for innovative techniques. The elimination
of surgical drains and shorter surgical times has made this a true boon for plastic surgeons as well as many other surgical specialists. The evolution of thread lifting techniques and their application in the field of aesthetic procedure is now in its third decade. PDO threadlift was originally developed in Korea to change the classical oriental round face into a western V shaped face, perceived to be more attractive. However, less clear are the data on the extent of the peak correction and the longevity of effect. Thread lifting has not been conclusively standardized to ensure superior clinical results.
Methods: This study was intended to determine the role of for Needle Hub Thread Lift (NHTL) under evidence-based medicine, particularly in accurate delivery of PDO threads. The research method involved the conceptualization of NHTL and the development of an innovative surgical instrument for thread lifting. Clinically, 240 patients for facial underwent this procedure.
Results: The major findings suggested that NHTL exhibits promising clinical results and offers a superior guideline for thread lifting. Details of the technique and theoretical implications are also discussed.
Conclusions: The therapeutic effects of NHTL and the long-term clinical results of patients for facial indicated satisfactory outcomes. Based on the results, NHTL offers an alternative option to
surgeons for performing thread lifting and provides a more favorable option for the benefit and welfare of patients by reducing the potential complications. The cosmetic purpose of this novel device should be clinically investigated in long-term studies.
