An innovative form, scaffold type of thread lift: its satisfactory performance and safety


GS Jung 鄭圭植 and H Song


The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes and safety of the new scaffold type polydioxanone thread lift. Thread lift and rejuvenation surgery were performed on four different areas: tear trough, nasolabial fold, cheek hollow, and marionette line; each group consisted of 12 patients using Cavern® threads. The procedure lasted about 7 minutes on average, and patients were able to return to work immediately afterwards. Facial rejuvenation using scaffold type thread Cavern® is a safe and effective procedure. This method produced good cosmetic results, a shorter operation time, less morbidity, and a faster recovery than the other method.
