Thread lifts were once considered a possible solution to tighten the face and neck without surgery. However, there isn’t clinical evidence that shows it being worthwhile for cosmetic improvement. In addition, plastic surgeons and dermatologists have not seen long-term, predictable results from such nonsurgical treatments. Any cosmetic results, if present, tend to be very short term. Thread lifts are not worth it.
A thread lift is not a replacement for a surgical facelift or neck lift. Patients with significant neck fat or sagging skin will typically require facelift surgery.
