Silhouette InstaLift: Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation

woman's rejuvenated faceHave you considered facial plastic surgery, but wish there was an easier way to achieve long-lasting rejuvenation? Robles Plastic Surgery now offers the Silhouette InstaLift, providing Phoenix, AZ, patients with a minimally invasive procedure that yields transformative, long-lasting results.

Dr. Ramon Robles performs the Silhouette InstaLift, a simple technique that uses sutures to elevate and reposition facial tissue and skin. A 45-minute office visit can provide you with a more youthful, uplifted appearance that lasts for up to three years.

About the Silhouette Lift

Collagen depletion and sagging tissue can change facial contours and leave you looking tired, sad, and older than you feel.

While a traditional facelift will elevate your features, it requires surgery and downtime. The InstaLift is much less invasive, leaves no scars, and your recovery is fast and comfortable.

The Silhouette technique uses strategically placed sutures to provide a lift in the mid-face and other areas. Anchored by bi-directional cones, suspension threads elevate your features to provide more youthful contours, enhancing the cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial folds. Dr. Robles can place additional sutures to provide a noticeable improvement in the brow and neck area. 

Utilized in reconstructive surgery, FDA-approved Silhouette sutures have been proven biocompatible and incredibly strong. The sutures are attached with no risk of migration or tissue damage.

The results of the InstaLift™ are subtle, natural-looking, and immediately apparent. You can expect to enjoy the benefits for an average of 18 to 36 months. 

The Procedure

Dr. Robles received specialized training in the Silhouette InstaLift - a requirement for any doctor who performs this unique procedure. During your consultation, he will assess your candidacy and discuss your goals, then create a specific plan for your procedure. Candidates for the Silhouette lift generally have good skin elasticity, and are concerned with mild to moderate facial sagging.

While a traditional facelift will elevate your features, it requires surgery and downtime. The InstaLift is much less invasive, leaves no scars, and your recovery is fast and comfortable.

To begin, your skin will be numbed with local anesthetic, eliminating any sensation of pain. The procedure involves threading dissolvable sutures under the skin to form a specific pattern. As they are pulled tight to provide uplift, speical "sculptra" cones are implanted to provide a sturdy anchor.

In some cases, micro-incisions may be made above the hairline, allowing access to the temporal fascia muscles. The sutures are anchored to these muscles to provide a strong lift for midface tissue.

Recovery time after a Silhouette lift is minimal. Patients can expect to resume normal activities within two days. Bruising and swelling is mild to nonexistent with this procedure. In fact, many patients experience only minimal post-treatment facial redness.

By day 10 to 14, there should be no visible trace of having undergone a procedure – just attractive new facial contours. Over time, your InstaLift sutures will be absorbed by the body. At the same time, they work to stimulate your own natural collagen to provide additional cosmetic benefits.
