The effects of aging are often seen more conspicuously in the face and neck area. Even if an individual has maintained a good fitness level and a well-proportioned figure, sagging facial skin, neck bands and deep neck creases, prominent smile lines, and a jowly appearance can make them appear old.
While facelift plastic surgery is a proven and effective way to reverse facial aging, many people want to avoid it due to a variety of reasons. These individuals can make remarkable candidates for an innovative non-surgical anti-aging procedure called Silhouette InstaLift.
This unique, minimally invasive procedure can address the problem of sagging skin in the face and neck, and restore a smoother, lifted skin appearance in these areas. The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by sagacious and outstanding board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin, provides Silhouette InstaLift to patients in Richmond, Virginia and other towns and communities in this area of America.
What is Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift offers an ideal, non-surgical alternative to traditional facelift plastic surgery for people who are bothered by sagging facial and neck contours, but do not want to undergo surgery or are not yet ready for it. Silhouette InstaLift involves the use of a re-absorbable suture and bidirectional cones to lift and stabilize the sagging mid-face tissue and neck tissue.
The improvement with this procedure occurs in two stages. A certain amount of facial and neck lift will occur immediately after the procedure, while in the next stage, the results will continue to improve over several months. This happens because the suture and cones promote the fresh production collagen fibers in the deeper tissue. New collagen volumizes the depleted areas and helps create more sustainable, natural looking and smooth results over time.
The Silhouette InstaLift procedure offers a number of advantages for people who are seeking an alternative to facelift plastic surgery. The procedure largely avoids the potential risks and complications that are typically associated with a major surgery such as facelift. The risk of infection or nerve damage in case of Silhouette InstaLift is relatively much reduced.
While facelift surgery will involve a downtime of at least one week, followed by several weeks of restrictions on vigorous exercise and activities, Silhouette InstaLift does not involve any significant recovery period. Most patients can simply return to their regular activities or go back to work quickly after the procedure.
As a result, Silhouette InstaLift is increasingly chosen by busy moms and working individuals who do not want to go through a surgical procedure that involves extended downtime, a period of limited activity, and a higher risk of side effects and complications.
Unlike a surgical facelift, the Silhouette InstaLift can be performed as an in-office procedure without the need for general anesthesia or IV sedation. The procedure involves no cuts or incisions, which means that scarring risks are eliminated. The procedure is also considerably more affordable than a surgical facelift.
