What is a Silhouette Lift?
Silhouette-Lift is a technique developed for use with Silhouette Sutures, a new suspension thread. 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. The sutures are attached to the temporal fascia. To achieve this, a small incision is made above the hairline, where the sutures are anchored.
Am I the ideal patient for a Silhouette Lift?
The medical professionals at Advanced Surgical Arts will work with you during your consultation to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. Even if you are not a candidate Dr. Lee and his staff can look at other options to get you the look that you desire.
Does a Silhouette Lift require a general anesthetic or hospitalization?
A Silhouette Lift is performed under local anesthetic in the practice of your surgeon without the need of hospitalization.
How long is the procedure?
The procedure takes less than 45 minutes for the face and less than 25 minutes for the neck.
