Thread lifts don’t work – part 2

Thread lifts don’t work – part 2

Posted on October 20, 2010

In journalism, reporters are always excited when they “scoop” the competition – and report on a story before the other guys. So, I’m pleased to report a bit of a “scoop” here. Last May, we discussed the thread lift technique and commented on how it didn’t work for very long, and how the results were subtle and short-term at best.

Just this week, in the highly respected Yearbook of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, I see two reports on threadlifts. The authors note that the results are dismal:

“rates of revision surgery…are high after threadlift”

“time to revisional surgery is short”

“results achieved by threadlift are subtle and short-lived”

“threadlift is not a minimally invasive replacement for rhytidectomy (facelift)”

“the threadlift provides only limited short-term improvement”

Summary: There are surgeons locally that recommend and use threadlifts. Just say no – don’t have threadlift procedures done. The experts feel they are a waste of time and money, as they are quite ineffective and don’t last.
