7 Reasons to Try a Threadlift Instead of a Surgery

Patient preparing for threadlift procedure.At some point, everyone wishes they could turn back the clock. But not everyone is interested in having plastic surgery to get there (at least not yet!). You may feel that surgery is not right, but you still know you are ready for a real change. Is there another option?

The truth is we see many patients who are seeking non-invasive alternatives that offer impressive results without the serious downtime and potential risks associated with surgery. And at the top of our list? The revolutionary Threadlift procedure.

How is a Threadlift Different

A Threadlift differs significantly from a traditional facelift. While both procedures aim to combat the signs of aging, a facelift involves extensive incisions, the repositioning of facial tissues, and the removal of excess skin. This invasive technique delivers instant, dramatic results but comes with the cost of longer recovery times, potential scarring, and a more noticeable change in appearance.

On the other hand, a Threadlift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine, dissolvable threads inserted just underneath the skin in order to lift and tighten targeted areas gradually. The results appear more natural, as the threads stimulate collagen production over time. Often referred to as a “lunchtime facelift,” Threadlifts require minimal downtime, with smaller incisions that leave almost no visible scarring, making them an appealing option for those seeking a subtler yet effective rejuvenation method.

Why Threadlifts Win

Don’t get us wrong; facelifts are a great option for many women (and men!). But Threadlifts are definitely the way to go for numerous patients. Here are the biggest reasons why.

Minimally Invasive

Let’s start with the most enticing aspect of Threadlift: it’s minimally invasive. Unlike a traditional facelift, which is surgery, a Threadlift is a quick and simple procedure with no scalpel necessary. This means shorter recovery times, reduced risk of complications, and less discomfort during and after the procedure. You can go right back to your daily activities almost immediately.

No General Anesthesia

One of the daunting aspects of any surgical procedure is the administration of general anesthesia. With a Threadlift, there’s no need for it. Instead, local anesthesia is used, ensuring you remain awake and aware throughout the process. This not only reduces the risks associated with general anesthesia but also eliminates the post-anesthesia grogginess.

Natural-Looking Results

Threadlifts are designed to produce results that look natural. The outcome is a refreshed appearance that enhances your natural beauty rather than transforming you into someone unrecognizable. While results are noticeable and significant with a Threadlift, a facelift means an instant and dramatic change that is immediately obvious.

Gradual and Long-Lasting

Unlike the instant results of surgery, a Threadlift offers gradual improvement over time. As the threads stimulate collagen production, your skin becomes firmer and more youthful-looking with each passing day. This gradual enhancement not only looks more natural but also provides long-lasting results that can endure for up to two years.

Minimal Scarring

One of the common concerns with surgery is scarring. Even though they are placed carefully, surgical facelifts leave noticeable scars that can take time to fade. In contrast, Threadlift incisions are incredibly small and well-hidden, making them virtually undetectable once healed.


Another remarkable aspect of Threadlifts is their versatility. These procedures can target various areas of the face, including the brows, cheeks, jawline, and neck. And, depending on your individual goals, you can choose from different types of Threadlifts, including NovaThreads or the Silhouette InstaLift.


Finally, let’s talk finances. Surgical facelifts can be costly, and insurance doesn’t cover elective cosmetic procedures. Threadlifts, on the other hand, tend to be more budget-friendly.
