  • Thread lifts

    A lot of my patients have been asking about Thread lifts. The Thread lift is a mini-facelift which can be done under local anesthesia in the physicians office. At our last national meeting in Chicago (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), the opinions seemed to be split into two camps. The first proponents were easily visible because the “threads” are a product to be sold and the companies want to create a buzz. The detractors were in the multiple closed door meetings, po-pooing both the medico-industrial complex and the myriad “me-too!!!” early adopters.
