These are very good questions.  What is the best choice for you? A Facelift or a Thread Lift?  Both procedures have benefits improving the visible signs of aging.   The Facelift is a surgical procedure, while the Thread Lift is a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure.   While the Facelift surgery requires you to enter the Operating Room, the Thread Lift can be done in the Surgeon’s Office.   About costs, the Facelift is more expensive than the Thread Lift, but your results will last much longer.  So let’s review each procedure in more detail.


The Facelift is also known as Rhytidectomy, and targets the lower and midface.  It focuses on removing sagging skin and tightening the muscles.  It also removes wrinkles and other signs of aging.  There are many different types of Facelift that can be performed according to your needs.   We have already discussed more about it in this article:  What is a SMAS Facelift?  This procedure offers long lasting results for up to 10 years. And for recovery period you will need about two weeks. It is very recommended for ages between 40-70 years old.

Thread Lift

The Thread Lift inserts dissolvable thread material beneath the surface of the skin. As the thread is tightened, it pulls the skin up. Threads will be absorbed in the course of 6 months.  This boosts the collagen and produces a tightening effect.  The Thread Lift can be inserted in your face or your breasts.   Local anesthesia is used, so it is a minimally-invasive procedure.  According to your case and your specific goals, your Surgeon will assess if you are a good candidate for a Thread Lift.

What is The Best Choice?

The best choice is the one that will help you achieve your goals.  If you are looking for a temporary result, the best choice is the Thread Lift.  If you are looking for a long-lasting result, the Facelift is definitely the right fit for you.

Can Both Procedures Be Done at the Same Time?

You cannot have both procedures done at the same time.

Can I Have One Procedure After the Other?

You will need to wait at least for 6-12 months after a Facelift to see the real results. Therefore, you will need to wait about a year to embark in another procedure.  The same applies with the Thread Lift.  You will need to wait for 6 months at least.  It is very important that you get assessment from your Surgeon before having a second procedure done.  He/She will recommend the best course of action, according to your specific needs and expectations.
