Thread lift is an elevation of various face parts with special threads. The title Aptos ® is combined from two parts – a (negation) and ptosis, which translated from Latin means abasement, descent. The procedure where Aptos Nano Spring 7 ® threads are used means literally «against descent». After lift, from 1 to 3 months, at the place of insignificant injury of connective tissue, new tissue with clear contours is formed. The main types of threads used are: free floating cogged or barbed threads which should not be suspended in order to hold the lift and smooth or suspension threads which should be anchored to a stable structure of the face or scalp.

Over the past decade we have developed and successfully used methods of minimally invasive aesthetic surgery, based on special threads provided with microscopic angled barbs (Aptos Thread), double-pointed needles (Aptos Needle), and elastic needles (Aptos Spring). This article describes our original techniques of subcutaneous suturing through and lifting of soft tissue, which make it possible to obtain qualitative, sufficiently long-standing lifting of the face and neck with no cuts or with tiny cutaneous incisions. Our 10-year experience in using the Aptos methods has demonstrated that these are simple, safe, and efficient techniques for rejuvenation of the face and neck.
