Silhouette Lift is done in about one hour, under local anesthesia in a comfortable office environment. You will be able to return to normal activities within 2 to 4 days. Silhouette Lift has proven
to last up to four years in most patients. If needed, a simple
re-tightening procedure can help to extend those results even longer. Silhouette Lift is an excellent alternative to a traditional facelift and offers natural looking results. You will still look like you, only younger and more refreshed.
Silhouette Lift is an FDA cleared minimally invasive technique used to lift and tighten sagging tissue in the mid to lower face. This non surgical alternative to a facelift is growing in popularity, having been successfully performed over 25,000 times in 55 countries around the world.
How Does Silhouette Lift Work?
Silhouette Lift uses a new type of suspension sutures developed specifically for the procedure. The Silhouette Sutures? offer significantly greater lift thanks to their unique bio-resorbable cones.
The Silhouette Sutures are made of a non-absorbable polypropylene strand, which holds several flexible, absorbable hollow cones. These cones allow tissue growth inside and around the hollow cones, creating a much stronger anchoring mechanism compared to traditional sutures.
One of the most unique features of the Silhouette Sutures is their ability to be retightened after a few years to provide extended longevity to the face lift.
About The Procedure
Silhouette Lift is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. You will remain awake and alert during the procedure, but will be unaware of any pain. The procedure takes about one hour. You will be able to leave immediately following the procedure.
For facial rejuvenation, the physician will make a small incision into the temporal region, just above the hair line. Depending on the desired lift, a number of Silhouette sutures will be inserted and pulled back to lift the lower face.
Most patients experience some mild soreness and pain following the procedure. You can resume normal activities within two to four days. Expect ten days for the skin to fully recover its natural aspect.
Silhouette Lift is an exciting new procedure that offers significant lift without invasive surgery. Ideal for both men and women, Silhouette Lift offers immediate results to help you look younger and fresher.
