Since last years, it is offered to solve this problem by thread lifting. But unfortunately, in most cases threads are placed without any consideration of anatomic features of face soft tissues. Materials and methods: There was organized 7 cadaver-courses and applied more than 100 cadaveric materials for study of anatomic features of face-compartments soft tissues ptosis.

Afterword, doctors applied different rejuvenated methods as thread lifting, fillers, skin surgical lifting. With this procedure completed the tissues of cadaveric materials were prepared and there was evaluated effectiveness of various methods for fight against soft tissues ptosis. There were discovered all swings and roundabouts of different methods and were determined reasons of complications and relapse occurrence. After each cadaver-course there was gathered consultation of attendee doctors for results discussion. Results: As a result of performed research lasted for 3 years it has been possible to find out the direction of each face compartment ptosis, to determine etiology of any wrinkles appearance on the face, to select correct methods for fight with given problem and also to determine the reason of many complications and appeared relapses. During this period the given methods were actively applied in the practice for patients and have proved its effectiveness. Discussion and conclusion: Results received during the research process are discussed by specialists in aesthetic medicine.
