A complementary treatment to injections of Botox and hyaluronic acid, the silhouette lift sutures redraw the contour of the face while stimulating the synthesis of collagen. These are absorbable threads placed under the skin, at the level of the mandibles, neck, and eyebrows. For an optimal and lasting result, patients may combine Silhouette lift with injections. Botox or hyaluronic acid restructure the volumes while the silhouette lift redistributes the tissues, thus effectively treating the cutaneous ptosis due to aging. The effects are visible immediately after the procedure. The skin is smoothed, the cheekbones raised. The eyes open and the skin tone shines.

How Does it Work?

The silhouette lift threads play an important role to get rid of the aging effect on the face. Their unique structure ensures effective soft tissue lifting, especially in the mid-face. In the silhouette lift technique, there are no hooks or thorns on the surface of the sutures, this successfully eliminates the risk of tissue damage. The silhouette threads are made of polypropylene - a fabric that is biocompatible with the human body. Its most important component is transparent, elastic and resorbable cones, which increase the lifting possibilities and whose absorption at the anchorage leads to tissue growth and the production of new collagen, thereby ensuring a stronger tissue suspension than with conventional methods.

The silhouette threads are attached to the temple fascia, which prevents them from moving. This type of attachment eliminates problems such as shifting or thread breakage that occurred with the use of previously produced fabrics. An undoubted advantage of silhouette lift is its natural effect, in addition to the security of implementation and the minimal invasiveness. The face looks fresher and more relaxed after the procedure is done. The change in appearance is noticeable, but it makes no impression of a mask. On the contrary, the rejuvenating procedure using silhouette threads provides facial expression.

What Does a Silhouette Lift Surgery Involve?

1.       Consultation for Silhouette Lift

After you submit your request for information, you will take an online consultation to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for the silhouette lift procedure. During this consultation, your complaints and story will be learned in detail and you will be asked if you have had any current health condition, any allergies, a medication that you use recently, or any surgery that you have experienced before. The photos of your face will also be very useful at this consultation phase. With all of this information, we can evaluate your case and prepare a customized treatment plan for you.

2.       Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

This is the stage where you choose one of the clinics and surgeons that we offer you according to your criteria, and also where we arrange the date and trip plan that suits you upon your preferred clinic or surgeon.

3.       Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon who performs your silhouette lift surgery. Everything about your surgery will be discussed between you and your surgeon during this consultation. The surgeon will try to understand your expectations better and also make you understand what you should expect from your surgery. At this stage, it is very important to find the answers to all the questions you have in mind about your Silhouette lift process. The surgeon will explain everything clearly and try to simulate the results as much as possible, in order you to feel ready and comfortable. 

4.       Medical Examinations

Before the surgery begins, your surgeon will conduct medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the silhouette lift surgery. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery and if any risk observed, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.       Surgery

The idea of a silhouette lift is very simple and clear. Special threads are pushed under the skin that anchor themselves there. The entire area of the face can then be lifted by the pull on the thread and thus tightened. The technique consists of introducing 3 to 4 pairs of threads provided on both sides with tiny absorbable cones, through an incision of about 1 cm in the scalp. These threads passing under the skin of the face, will anchor in the deep tissues and reshape the oval of the face. The middle face regains its volume, deep eyebrows rise again, corners of the mouth no longer "hang" and facial tiredness is erased. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia within a few minutes. Silhouette lift is a painless procedure and you can start working again immediately afterward.


What Should I Expect from Silhouette Lift?

  • You should eat a soft diet for the first three days after the procedure has been performed.
  • Keeping the facial movements to a minimum for at least two weeks is essential.
  • You should avoid excessive chewing, yawning, smiling, and other extreme facial movements during this period.


Things You Should Consider Before Silhouette Lift Surgery

  • You should see your surgeon make him/her evaluate your current health status
  • Your surgeon may adjust your current medications before the surgery
  • You should stop smoking at least several weeks before and after the procedure
  • Avoiding to take aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements is also important because it can increase bleeding in the whole process of a silhouette lift.



Is Silhouette Lift Procedure Painful?

Although postoperative pain is rare, it can be experienced, to relieve this pain your doctor will prescribe you proper pain medication.

Will Silhouette Face Lift Last A Lifetime?

Unfortunately, no magical method for completely stopping aging has been discovered yet, so silhouette facelift doesn't last for life, it should be repeated. Researchers claim that the effects of this procedure last for four years, which is an excellent result considering the minimal invasiveness of the procedure.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
