Silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure, mostly done to rejuvenate the appearance of the middle face, neck and brow region. The process effectively elevates and corrects drooping tissues in these areas with the help of very fine threads that are inserted under the skin. The threads themselves are very similar to those used in facelift surgery – they are made from polypropylene, a material which is currently used for sutures and stitches inside the body.The special facelift procedure called the silhouette InstaLift is an FDA-approved procedure and also used commonly. Surgeons use absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones in this "instant" procedure in order to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin.
Silhouette lift is a very safe and effective procedure which offers immediate results. The procedure also has considerable advantages to traditional facelift surgery:
● No incision – a silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure; it means that there is no incision used during the operation. Patients will have no visible scars as well as the risk of infection is minimized as well.
● Speedy recovery – the average silhouette lift recovery period is much shorter than with full facelift surgery.
● Anesthesia – there is no need to use general anesthesia for a silhouette lift as it used in traditional facelift surgery, local anesthesia is used instead. Therefore, more people can have this procedure, since some people are incompatible with the risks associated with general anesthesia.
● Good results – a silhouette lift provides immediate remarkable results which last for a certain period before other procedures may become more necessary.
Silhouette lift is recommended for patients with sagging skin and wrinkles in neck, eyebrows and mid-face areas, or patients with jaws or eye bags. The procedure is also recommended for patients simply wanting a rejuvenated facial appearance.
