Published 2018 · Medicine
AbstractIntroduction The aesthetic manifestations of the aging process in the cheekbone, cheek and infraorbital areas are especially concerning for patients, so rejuvenating interventions in these areas are most in demand.Objective To introduce the experience of our clinic for aesthetic manipulation using Aptos (anti-ptosis) thread lifting methods in the midface area.MethodsAmong the surgical interventions that we used were Aptos thread lifting methods both in combination with lower blepharoplasty, and without it. At the same time, special attention was paid to the individual approach, trying to minimize invasiveness and, most importantly, trying to achieve the effect of moving subcutaneous soft tissues to a new, more advantageous position from an aesthetic point of view, with their fixation to dense structures.ResultsThe results of application of the presented methods to lift the cheek–zygomatic and infraorbital regions using Aptos methods were studied. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the results satisfied both surgeons and patients.ConclusionsAptos methods for lifting the midface soft tissues, which we used, are quite effective for rejuvenating the aging face.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.
