Silhouette Facelift™ FAQs

What is Silhouette Lift?

Silhouette Lift is a non surgical facelift technique that utilizes Silhouette Sutures™ to lift and suspend the mid to lower face. This innovative technique offers greater lift compared to similar procedures due to the unique bio-resorbable cones located along the sutures. It is the only procedure of its kind available with FDA approval and CE mark.

Who is Silhouette Lift for?

Silhouette Lift is for men and women who want to improve the tightness of their face and/or neck. Most patients are between age 35 to 65 and have mild to moderate facial sagging, primarily in the mid to lower face.

Silhouette Lift does not replace a facelift. If you have significant facial sagging, a surgical facelift may be the best option. Silhouette Lift is especially well suited for men who have receding hairlines or baldness and are unable to hide scars from facelift surgery.

Is Silhouette Lift safe?

Yes, Silhouette Sutures have been approved by the United States FDA and received the CE mark in Europe. These approvals are unique for this type of procedure. Over 25,000 procedures have been performed to date in over 55 countries. As with any surgery, there are risks and side effects. Those associated with Silhouette Lift are mild and rare.

What is the procedure like?

Silhouette Lift Step-by-Step

  • Step 1: Patient Is Relaxed – The cosmetic doctor will administer local anesthesia to make you more comfortable and relaxed for the procedure. You will remain fully awake, however, and able to communicate with the doctor throughout your treatment.
  • Step 2: Physician Makes Incision – The cosmetic surgeon will make a small incision in front of the ear, just above the hair line. In the case of a neck lift, the incision will be made behind the ear.
  • Step 3: Insertion of Sutures – Using a special device, the Silhouette Sutures™ are inserted into predetermined locations on the mid to lower face. Depending on the desired lift, one or more sutures will be inserted.
  • Step 4: Repositioning the Skin – The Silhouette Sutures are pulled tight to give the desired lift and anchored in the temporal region.
  • Step 5: Closing the Incision – Fine sutures are used to close the incision. The incision site is so small that it generally doesn’t require special dressings or coverings. The cosmetic doctor will review any special care instructions.
Is there much downtime?

Silhouette Lift is typically complete in about an hour and you will be able to leave our office immediately. Common side effects include temporary soreness in the incision site. Most patients return to normal activities in two to four days.* Full recovery is expected within 10 days.*

What kind of results can I expect?

You will see an immediate improvement in the fullness of the face with greater definition to the contours of the face and jaw. Silhouette Lift has proven to last three to four years in most patients.* A quick, outpatient maintenance procedure can help to extend these results for an additional three to four years.*
