Why the Silhouette-Lift?
To have a firmer, smoother and younger face… you don’t need a full face lift! Silhouette Lift sutures offer an authentic alternative to the face lift!
The revolutionary new Silhouette Lift gives you the opportunity to get back that face, that smile, that freshness that you like so much, without a general anesthetic, without hospitalization and without a long recovery time. This minimally invasive technique is used to lift and reposition sagging mid face tissue. Silhouette Sutures offer significantly greater lift due to their unique absorbable cones which give strong traction when lifting the soft tissue. This new face-lift technique is performed with local anesthetic in less than 45 minutes and without any hospitalization. The immediate recovery enables you to go back to normal activities within 2-3 days and after 2 weeks the face has recovered its soft and natural aspect.
The Silhouette-Lift Sutures
The origin of these sutures is in Reconstructive Surgery. They have been used for years in clinical medicine to correct the effects of facial paralysis. The results that have been achieved and the development of the technique are very well know to reconstructive plastic surgeons. Now this technique has arrived in the area of Aesthetic Surgery where it’s multiple advantages of immediate and natural results, along with a short recovering time, has led plastic surgeons to use the sutures in cosmetic surgery. Silhouette Lift sutures are made of polypropylene, a totally biocompatible material used for a long time in Cardiovascular and Ophthalmological surgery and have been certified by the FDA as well as the European Union CE mark. The sutures contain microcones that, anchoring in the soft tissues, provide an internal effect of traction that produces a natural looking face lift. This life in the face recovers the volume and the firmness of youth.
Advantages of Silhouette Lift® facelift
Facial movement should be somewhat limited for about two to three weeks, however normal activities such as walking or sitting at a computer may be resumed within an hour after the procedure. Silhouette Lift® patients should avoid strenuous exercise or activity for approximately five days.
The best candidates for Silhouette Lift® are those who are in good physical condition, with reasonably normal skin thickness. If you have had a surgical facelift previously, but are again experiencing sagging skin, you may still be a good candidate for the Silhouette Lift®. Younger patients, looking for subtle changes with brow or cheek, jowels or neck sagging, or those wishing to delay signs of aging are also excellent candidates.
The result: A fresher, younger more rested expression… without losing its natural look!
