APTOS Procedures

The Aptos thread lift technique developed in Russia uses suture like threads made from a special bio-compatible material. These APTOS-Threads have tiny spikes in their entire length and are inserted under the skin at suitable angles to lift the sagging skin. This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine surgical threads to lift areas of the face that have sagged over a period of time.

As we begin to age the tissue becomes weakened, we lose facial fat and the underlying support structure typically in the cheeks, around the eyes, the brows, the jowls and neck creating a longer, older looking face. In the traditional facelift the excess and loose skin, fat and tissue are removed surgically. In the Aptos thread lift procedure the skin is pulled tighter without cutting.

This procedure can be used for brow, forehead, neck, jaw line and cheek lifting. It is ideal for nose-cheek folds, loosened cheeks and brows, and for tightening the neck area.


Adrenalectomy Treatment

The Aptos thread lift procedure is performed under local anesthesia in about 45 minutes. Best of all, The Aptos thread lift technique developed in Russia uses suture like threads made from a special bio-compatible materialunlike conventional face lifts, they leave no scars. The recuperation takes a maximum of 72 hours. The threads have cogs or barbs which are pointed in one direction and open up. Once inserted under the skin via a long needle, the barbs open much like an umbrella and are pulled tight. The threads are inserted through incisions approximately 1.5mm long in the hairline and then passed under the skin in precise locations using a small needle.This tension then creates a suspension that gently lifts soft tissue, creating a more uplifted and contoured look to the face. The tissue gets caught slightly in these cogs and is then suspended and lifted. The threads are placed in carefully predetermined areas of the face to support the tissue and lift it. Even better, the results are improved over time as your collagen encapsulates around the threads causing an even further lifting effect. This procedure gives an immediate result in comparison to a conventional face lift.

The Aptos thread lift can easily make a person look younger by upto 15 years from your apparent age depending on your current physiognomy. This is more suited for people in the age group of 30 and 45 years with fairly good skin elasticity. However for patients with very loose neck, this will not be a recommended procedure. This procedure merely redistributes existing skin to create more even contours, whereas a facelift removes the excess tissue and is longer lasting.

This procedure is considered much less invasive than traditional mid-face, face and brow lifts, requiring less operating room time and less downtime. The Feather Lift is also becoming popular with younger people wishing for subtle changes or to possibly delay the signs of aging such as facial drooping.

The advantages of this procedure are that it is reversible in case the effects are not satisfactory.


After an APTOS procedure, the patient is to avoid manipulating the face muscles for a minimum of 2 weeks. Animated facial movements such as smiling should be avoided in order keep the Aptos threads in place during the process of fixing to the surrounding tissues.
