A Boyfriend’s Journey
“When my girlfriend mentioned she was considering a thread lifting procedure, I was clueless. So, I decided to visit Dr. Seo KangYeol at PangPang Clinic to get the lowdown on this popular cosmetic procedure.”
“I saw the sign while passing by and I was really curious,” says our protagonist, a concerned boyfriend whose girlfriend has recently developed an interest in thread lift. “My girlfriend keeps talking about getting thread lift. Isn’t it dangerous?” he wonders.
Thread lifting, as he came to understand, is a procedure that lifts sagging skin. “She said it lifts sagging skin, I wonder what it is. So, you put the thread in your face like this, Is it the same thread used for sewing?” he asks. “Then, once the thread is inserted, does it stay forever and can’t be removed?”
The answer to his question is that the thread used in the procedure dissolves in about a year. “You just said it dissolves in about a year. So, do you have to keep doing it?” he inquires. The duration can vary, depending on individual differences.
Why Thread Lifting?
“My girlfriend had been dieting and noticed her skin sagging a bit. She was considering thread lifting, a procedure that uses medical threads to lift sagging skin. It can also be used for various procedures such as nose and nasolabial folds.”
Is the Thread Safe?
“I was curious if the thread used in the procedure was the same as the one used for sewing. Dr. Seo Kang Yeol explained that the thread used is a medical thread that is harmless to the body. The clinic uses medical PDO dissolvable threads for the procedure. This is a relief for many who feel burdened about putting permanent fillers inside their bodies.”
Are There Various Types of Threads?
“I wondered if there was only one type of thread used in thread lifting. Dr. Seo Kang Yeol explained that there are a variety of threads in terms of components, uses, etc. The clinic uses a variety of threads according to skin type, area, and design to suit the purpose.”
Is the Pain Severe?
“I was concerned about the pain during the procedure. Pangpang Clinic performs local anesthesia at the location where the thread is inserted to minimize patient discomfort and pain. For those who are still scared even with local anesthesia, the clinic also uses gas anesthesia, which is commonly used in dentistry. In extreme cases, they also perform general anesthesia. Most of the people who have had the procedure at Pangpang Clinic said that the pain was minimal.”
Will the Scar Be Severe?
“I was worried about the scar after the procedure. Dr. Seo Kang Yeol explained that thread lifting is performed with minimal invasion without incision, so the scar does not remain large. However, a small wound can occur, so the procedure is performed in places where the wound is not visible, such as the hairline or behind the ear.”
Are There Any Side Effects?
“I asked about the side effects of thread lifting. Dr. Seo Kang Yeol explained that after the procedure, the tissue is a little damaged. For more information about the side effects of thread lifting, check out the full youtube video here!”
“After my visit to Pangpang Clinic, I feel more informed about thread lifting. If you have any concerns about nose thread lifting, Pangpang Clinic is available for consultations and will do their best to help.”
