Your face will reveal the passage of time before any other area of your body. If you are unhappy to see the signs of aging appearing, an Instalift can rejuvenate, restore, and refresh your look for years in a simple, fast procedure.


What is a Silhouette Instalift?

A Silhouette Instalift is a minimally invasive procedure to lift sagging cheeks and jowls, and smooth creases and folds around the mouth and nose. This groundbreaking thread lift is performed with a uniquely designed thread or suture, with tiny cones that help to support the tissues, precisely moved to a natural, more youthful position. The customized sutures will be secured to precise points on your facial structure, without the need for large incisions. This procedure provides some of the benefits of a surgical facelift and achieves remarkable results with minimal downtime.

What are the benefits of Silhouette Instalift?

The Silhouette Instalift is a revolutionary take on a thread lift. The range of benefits include:

  • Lifts and rejuvenates your facial contours
  • Smooths deep folds around your nose and mouth
  • Restores youthful jawline definition
  • Lifts jowls
  • Stimulates the production of collagen for long term skin rejuvenation
  • Requires less than an hour to perform
  • Recovery is short, with minimal downtime
  • Small needle-sized incisions, no visible scars
  • Sutures are composed of a biocompatible material and will dissolve on their own
  • Immediate and long-term rejuvenating results

Am I a candidate?

The Silhouette Instalift can be the perfect facial rejuvenation procedure if you are experiencing the early to mid-stages of facial aging and wrinkle development. You may also be a candidate if you have experienced significant weight loss that has impacted your facial contours. You could be a candidate if you are starting to notice:

  • Deeper creases developing around nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Sagging jowls and cheeks
  • Skin and muscle laxity affecting the lower facial region
  • Lost volume in your cheeks and sagging facial contours
  • Candidates should be in good health and have no current infections.

What is the procedure for Silhouette Instalift?

The procedure for Silhouette Instalift is as simple as one, two, three!

  • First, the entry and exit points are marked on your skin
  • Then the anesthetics are applied, and the sutures precisely inserted
  • The last step is anchoring and tightening the sutures to create a natural-looking result

What should I expect during the recovery period?

You should expect to take the first day off from work or your regular routine after the procedure. There will be some discomfort and swelling, easily controlled with mild pain relievers and the application of cold compresses. You will need to sleep on your back with your head elevated for the first five days to minimize swelling and to encourage healing. Strenuous exercise and activities such as contact sports must be avoided for the first week. Other aftercare instructions include:

  • Avoid making facial motions for the first twenty-four hours
  • Do not touch your face or massage the sutures
  • No sauna or activities that could cause excessive sweating
  • Full aftercare instructions are provided, and following the instructions is an essential part of a successful recovery.

When will I see the results?

The results are immediate and can be enjoyed right after your procedure. The results from Silhouette Instalift will only get better as you heal, and the swelling will fade. Over the following months, the sutures dissolve and the newly formed collagen adds strength, flexibility, and firmness that lasts.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
