Silhouette Lift

What is a Silhouette Lift?

A Silhouette Lift is a relatively new, minimally-invasive surgical technique used to resuspend the brows, midface, nasolabial areas, jowls, and neck with a unique type of suture that has absorbable cones to support the sagging tissues.  

How do I know if I am a good candidate for a Silhouette Lift?

If you have noticed sagging of facial structures or lost definition of your jawline, you would benefit from a Silhouette Lift.  

How is a Silhouette Lift performed?

A Silhouette Lift is minimally-invasive and can be performed in 45 minutes using mild sedation and local anesthesia. Micro-incisions are made near the temporal hairline to introduce the suture material without removing any skin or muscle.  

How does a Silhouette Lift compare to other techniques?

A Silhouette Lift uses proprietary suture material with absorbable cones and has been shown to create excellent resuspension of soft tissues. It has less robust results compared with traditional full facelift or forehead lifts but is an excellent option for patients who have less facial sagging and desire a quicker recovery period.  

How long is the recovery period after a Silhouette Lift?

Mild discomfort, swelling and bruising usually subsides within 3 days and facial contours normalize between 1-2 weeks.

How long will results last after a Silhouette Lift?

Between 2-5 years for most patients.
