Thread lifts seemed so popular when they first came out but now you don’t hear much about them, at least not much that’s good. What’s changed?
Question: Thread lifts seemed so popular when they first came out but now you don’t hear much about them, at least not much that’s good. What’s changed?
Answer: I think what has changed is the fact that there have been countless numbers of patients who have had these thread lifts and now have noticed that the effects of the thread lift have essentially disappeared. This can occur in a matter of months, not years, and this, therefore, frustrates patients who have spent literally thousands of dollars on a face lift that is so short lived. Once the word got out that these thread lifts do not last very long, the majority of companies that actually made these threads ended up going out of business. Fortunately, I saw this coming and when thread lifts were hot, I did not fall prey to the marketing and media frenzy and simply cautioned my patients that these thread lifts would most likely not last very long due to the fact that they are relying on a simple suture to lift and this will eventually pull through the tissue and have no significant long-lasting effect. Overall, this continues to prove the old adage that if it appears too good to be true, it most likely is.
