Silhouette InstaLift®

Dr. Robert Whitfield now offers Silhouette InstaLift in Austin, which is the facial rejuvenation procedure that provides an immediate lifting effect while stimulating skin regeneration from within, with age-defying aesthetic results far superior to other thread lift procedures.

What is Silhouette InstaLift®?

Silhouette InstaLift® is a minimally invasive, in-office procedure to re-contour your mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin to restore a more youthful appearance. This breakthrough anti-aging treatment and help you look years younger in a short, in-office appointment.

How does Silhouette InstaLift® work?

During a short in-office procedure, plastic surgeon Dr. Whitfield will insert the patented sutures to lift the deeper layers of the mid-face and cheek skin. The treatment doesn’t require general anesthesia and takes approximately 45 minutes. You will see immediate lifting with volumization over time, and will have minimal recovery time.

How is Silhouette InstaLift® different?

The Silhouette InstaLift® sutures are naturally absorbed by your body in the weeks and months ahead, working to trigger the natural collagen production for healthy skin renewal, and natural-looking, long-lasting results. Silhouette InstaLift® is different from other thread lifts, taking non-surgical facial rejuvenation to the next level.

The patented threads have cones that lift sagging skin, for a remarkably natural result. Over time, the sutures are absorbed by your body, triggering natural collagen regeneration in the facial skin. As the weeks pass, your skin will become firmer and more youthful.

When will I see results of Silhouette InstaLift®?

Immediately. Your skin will be carefully adjusted to suit the natural contours of your facial structure, held in place by the small cones. Your skin regenerates over time, becoming firmer, stronger, and more youthful in quality.

How long do the results last?

The results of a Silhouette InstaLift® are immediate, with the added benefit of skin renewal and regeneration that lasts up to two years

Post Operative Recovery

You can return to your normal routine within 24 hours, but must avoid vigorous chewing motions for a week.

Can InstaLift be combined with other fillers or procedures?

For a fully customized facial rejuvenation, you may choose to undergo other procedures, such as natural fat grafting, dermal fillers to restore lost volume, BOTOX injections to smooth forehead lines, skin resurfacing, a chemical peel to restore even skin tone or other procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Silhouette InstaLift® sutures are made from two biodegradable materials that have been used in the medical field for decades and are well-tolerated by the body. These are PGA (polyglycolic acid) and PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid). The sutures (threads) are PLLA, and the tiny cones are a combination of the two materials.

Facial recontouring with Silhouette InstaLift® will appear exceptionally natural. The art of subtly lifting your facial skin and repositioning it to its natural, youthful location on your facial structure requires meticulous attention to detail. You can trust that your results will look very natural, refreshed, and will improve as your skin regenerates in the weeks and months following your treatment.

A facelift or neck lift may be necessary in cases of more extreme facial sagging, deep creases, or a quantity of sagging skin and fat beneath the chin, sagging neck skin, or vertical bands on the neck. If you are experiencing early signs of aging and your facial skin has started to thin or sag, or deep laugh lines are developing and you are losing the youthful definition at your jawline, a Silhouette InstaLift® could be your answer.

Candidates for this groundbreaking facial rejuvenation treatment have moderate sagging in the mid-face region, visible laugh lines and marionette lines (from lip corners into the chin), with skin quality that has thinned, but is not too thin. The skin will be carefully moved to its youthful location on your facial structure. If you have an excess of sagging skin due to advanced aging and thinner skin, or skin with little natural fat, another procedure may be more appropriate for you.

The Silhouette InstaLift® has little to no downtime. It is normal to experience some tenderness and mild swelling or soreness for a day or two. You can expect to return to your usual activities within 1 or 2 days of your procedure.

A Silhouette InstaLift® costs far less than a surgical facelift, at an average of $2,750.

Potential side effects include swelling, a risk of infection, or an unsatisfactory outcome, so it’s important to have a professional perform the procedure. Dr. Whitfield prides himself as an acclaimed plastic surgeon with awards and honors reflecting a high quality of work.

The entire procedure requires about 45 minutes to complete, with instant results, and you will not suffer any pain during the procedure as the insertion points are numbed with a local anesthetic.

"Because no two individuals are the same, cosmetic enhancement must be approached with meticulous precision and personalized care."
