Don't do it. I spent $2500 having a thread procedure performed on me in 2002, only to have two separate surgeons tell me in 2008 that I would have to have the strings removed when I sought a facelift in anticipation of my son's wedding--he is marrying into a prestigious family, and I wanted to look good.
The pros: the thread lift made my cheeks look better for a couple of years.
The cons: The strings--in my case, the ones on the left side of my face--ultimately began to hurt when I was sleeping with the left side of my face on the pillow. Secondly, these strings have to be removed if you ultimately have a facelift. I think it's wiser to save the $2500 to put towards your $6,000-12,000 facelift
