Thread Lift As an Alternative to Full Facelift?
Q: I have heard that a “thread lift” is alternative to a “full” facelift. What is this? Is it less extensive and expensive? Less scarring? I am 49 but with minimal sagging. I’d just like a little lift. Is there such a thing?
A: Both the Silhouette Instalift & the Facelift have unique Benefits
The Silhouette Instalift is a non-invasive office procedure using an absorbable thread with attached micro-lifting cones. This procedure is superb for mild laxity of the cheek and jaw area. The results are rapidly visible and the down time minimal.
A Facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts, contours and smooths the neck, jaw and mid-face. Associated with the facelift are scars, which are usually well placed and not very discernible after they are well healed. The recovery time is weeks but the results are incredible when the proper time, energy and artistry are woven into the surgery.
Generally, the Silhouette Instalift is great for those with better skin tone and fairly smooth necks. A consultation with your surgeon will identify which procedure is optimal for you.
