A thread lift lasts 18-24 months, according to a panel of worldwide experts I saw in October 2009, at the national meeting for the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
It’s entirely possible that threads will need to be removed and a facelift performed anyway should you opt to pursue the route of a thread lift. In my book, the procedure is not recommended – the idea of permanent cable threads in the cheeks doesn’t sit well with me, combined with the fact that the procedure still costs nearly as much as a facelift and doesn’t last very long, .
It’s highly advised that you discuss all your options with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and discuss both invasive and non-invasive procedures thoroughly before you commit.
