When it comes to reversing the signs of aging, a facelift is often what comes to mind and has long been considered the “gold standard” of treatment options. In the hands of a capable and highly skilled cosmetic surgeon, results are natural looking and lasting. However, there are certain drawbacks to this surgical cosmetic procedure that cause many patients to consider other options: significant downtime, discomfort and cost.
Richard M. Goldfarb, MD F.A.C.S., a Philadelphia area cosmetic surgeon, has been on the forefront of emerging treatment options in the fields of cosmetic and facial plastic surgery. He currently serves as the medical director for Silhouette Lift™, a popular nonsurgical facelift option. Silhouette Lift™ is a minimally invasive procedure that restores volume and lift to the cheeks, jowls and neck area for a more youthful appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are dramatically reduced as a result of a Silhouette Lift™- without the more dramatic side effects and downtime associated with a traditional facelift.
It is becoming a popular treatment option for a patient who is not ready for a facelift, but wants to go beyond the use of a dermal filler or Botox®. In a recent Harper’s Bazaar article, Dr. Goldfarb discussed the benefits of the “no knife facelift” and why it is once again increasing in popularity.
“It’s for the same type of patient who would come in for filler, except that this is also able to mechanically lift up the skin where fillers can really only volumize.” –Richard M. Goldfarb, MD F.A.C.S.
Dr. Goldfarb offers the unique Silhouette Lift™ procedure at his Bucks County cosmetic center, the Center for Smart Lipo and Plastic Surgery in Langhorne, PA. He also teaches the technique to cosmetic physicians across the country. A highly trained and experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Goldfarb is a nationally recognized leader in aesthetic treatments and cosmetic surgical procedures.
