Silhouette Lift™ is a patented self anchoring thread technology that permits a minimally invasive surgical approach for elevation & fixation of skin. Developed by a board certified plastic surgeon, Silhouette Lift™ is an FDA approved product that uses patented dimensional cones that attach to the subdermal tissue, lifting, suspending and fixating contour of the brow, midface & neck areas.
The Silhouette Lift™ shows immediate effects. Patients can achieve 30-70% of what a traditional invasive facelift may achieve and well over 90% of Silhouette Lift™ patients report very satisfying lift results. The Silhouette Lift™ lasts 6-10 years and can be repeated. Many Silhouette Lift patients choose to combine the skin tightening effects of the Silhouette Lift™ with other treatments such as botulinum toxin (Botox), dermal fillers, Sciton Joule™ laser therapy, chemical peels and microdermabrasion to achieve maximum results
Silhouette Lift™ is used to improve:
- Lift sagging eyebrows
- Adjust asymmetric eyebrows
- Reposition sagging cheeks
- Lift drooping soft tissue of the mid and lower face and neck
- Smooth out premature skin aging
- Lifting Neck (more popular than ever)
The Silhouette Lift™ is a minimally invasive office procedure performed under local anesthetic that is designed to elevate, reposition and lift lax skin of the brow, face and neck. The Silhouette Lift™ works by having these fine threads inserted painlessly under the skin. These fine threads are similar to those that would be used to support the deep structures of your face if you were to receive a real surgical facelift.
Using local anesthetic, the threads are passed into the droopy facial element with a special guide needle. The threads are then able to grab on to the droopy soft-tissue and muscle of the desired area. Most patients experience minimal bruising or swelling for 1-7 days. The Silhouette Lift™ is not painful and most patients can return to normal activities with makeup the next day. The risks and complications are uncommon and usually easily correctable. Dr. Yates may also offer you the option of having light sedation, depending on the extent of the Silhouette Lift™ you are having and the number of Silhouette Lift™ to be used in one stage.
Patients notice improved fullness in the face with greater definition in the contours of the face and jaw immediately and full results in as short as 3 weeks. Silhouette Lift™ has proven to last 6-10 years in most patients. A quick, outpatient maintenance procedure can help to extend these results of the Silhouette Lift™.
