Abstract

A 48-year-old patient reported pain in her face and neck. Within 10 years she had undergone three "golden thread lift" suspension procedures, the last one 2 years previously. Skull radiographs showed complete fragmentation of all the implants into small pieces, and a total loss of their vector orientation.
