Frequently Asked Questions
What is Silhouette Lift™ ?
Silhouette-Lift™ is a technique developed for use with Silhouette Sutures™, a new suspension suture. This non invasive technique is used to lift and reposition sagging tissue. The Silhouette Sutures™ offer significantly greater lift due to their unique bio resorbable cones. The sutures are attached to the temporal fascia. To achieve this, a small 1-2 cm incision is made above the hairline, where the sutures are anchored.
What are the benefits of Silhouette Lift™ ?
Silhouette Lift™ is ideal to correct signs of aging in the nasolabial fold, the expression lines and the jowls. Silhouette Lift™ is also effective for the neck and the brows. Unlike barbed sutures the new cones are unlikely to cause any side effects as there are no sharp ends. Also, unlike free floating threads these are anchored to the deeper tissue providing a 'hold' and a 'lift'.
