SOT: MARIANNO BUSSO/COSMETIC DERMATOLOGIST

"So far plastic surgery has been the best way to correct and reposition skin into its more juvenile appearance."
BUT FOR MANY PEOPLE-- A FACELIFT SEEMS LIKE A GRUESOME ROAD TO GOOD LOOKS WITH IT'S LONG RECOVERY PERIOD AND SURGICAL RISKS.
STANDUP: "But soon patients may have an alternative to the facelfit, with a new minimally invasive procedure using these tiny threads called the featherlift."
MADE FROM THE SAME SUTURING MATERIAL ALREADY USED IN PLASTIC SURGERY-- THE THREADS, KNOWN AS APTOS THREADS--ARE UNIQUE.
ON EACH END THEY HAVE OPPOSING SETS OF TEETH, OR COGS. DURING THE FEATHERLIFT PROCEDURE THE SURGEON INSERTS THE THREADS UNDER THE TISSUES OF THE FACE WITH A THIN NEEDLE. THE TEETH ON ONE END-- GRAB AND LIFT THE SAGGING SKIN. THE TEETH ON THE OTHER END ANCHOR THAT SKIN TO THE REST OF THE FACIAL TISSUES.
DR. BUSSO SAYS, THE FEATHER LIFT IS COMPLETELY REVERSIBLE, THERE ARE LITTLE RISKS, AND ALMOST NO DOWNTIME.
AND IT TAKES LESS THAN AN HOUR TO PERFORM. FDA APPROVAL IS PENDING, AND BECAUSE THE PROCEDURE IS STILL INVESTIGATIONAL, WE WEREN'T ALLOWED TO INTERVIEW A PATIENT. BUT THESE BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS SUGGEST THE FEATHERLIFT COULD SOON BECOME A COSMETIC HEAVYWEIGHT. BUT EVEN SO, DR. BUSSO SAYS IT'S NOT FOR EVERYONE.
THE THREADS CAN ONLY CREATE A LITTLE LIFT. SO IF YOU FEEL YOUR FACE NEEDS A LIITLE BIT MORE WORK, THE FEATHERLIFT PROBABLY WON'T WORK FOR YOU. DR. SEAN KENNIFF, CBS NEWS. ))
