Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a rapidly advancing field, with many innovative procedures and techniques being developed to improve patient outcomes. One of the most popular and effective procedures is the face lift, which is designed to reduce the signs of aging and give the patient a more youthful and refreshed appearance. However, traditional face lifts are often invasive and require significant downtime and recovery. This is where minimal invasive face lifts and thread lifts come in.
Minimal invasive face lifts are non-surgical procedures that use injectable fillers and muscle relaxers to tighten and lift the skin, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance. These procedures are typically used to target specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck, and can be performed in a matter of minutes. Patients typically experience little to no downtime and can see immediate results, which can last for several months.
Thread lifts, on the other hand, involve the use of thin, dissolvable threads that are inserted into the skin to lift and tighten sagging skin. This procedure is less invasive than a traditional face lift and can be performed under local anesthesia. The threads are inserted into the skin through small incisions and are then pulled tight to lift the skin. Patients typically experience minimal downtime and can see results that last for up to a year.
Both of these procedures have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their minimal invasiveness and ability to provide significant results. However, it’s important to note that these procedures should only be performed by a qualified and experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Patients should also be aware of the potential risks and complications associated with these procedures, such as infection, bleeding, and scarring.
Dr. Shohreh Ghasemi is one such qualified and experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon who has made significant contributions to the field of facial cosmetic surgery.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Ghasemi has organized conferences and conducted several research projects on the subject of facial cosmetic surgery. She has also been recognized by the US state department for her efforts in community colleges and workforce development. Dr. Ghasemi has been an editor of many books, including Innovative Perspective in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Navigation in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and Minimal Invasive Rhinoplasty.
In conclusion, minimal invasive face lifts and thread lifts are two effective procedures in oral and maxillofacial surgery that can provide a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the need for more invasive surgeries. With the help of qualified and experienced surgeons like Dr. Shohreh Ghasemi, patients can achieve excellent results and regain their confidence and self-esteem.
