The face is aesthetically the most prominent part of an individual’s appearance. Signs of aging on the face can show conspicuously and make a person look tired and older than their actual age. Many people choose facelift plastic surgery to restore facial youth and take several years off their face for dating purposes, general overall appearance, to lift their spirits, and so on.
But there are also a significant number of women and men who want to avoid surgery, and seek safe and effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation options. For all such people, Silhouette InstaLift has emerged as a popular, minimally invasive procedure to provide a subtle lift to sagging facial skin and restore a youthful looking face.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by astute and innovative board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin, provides innovative and advanced aesthetic solutions such as Silhouette InstaLift to rejuvenate the face. Patients in Richmond, Virginia and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive this treatment at VIPS.
Unlike traditional facelift plastic surgery, the Silhouette InstaLift procedure can be performed in-office without the need for general anesthesia. It involves the placement of safe and proven bio-medical sutures and cones in the targeted sagging areas of the face to create a gentle lift and firmness in the facial skin.
The InstaLift technique will lead to immediate tightening of the sagging facial tissue and produce a lift in the mid-face. As the sutures are placed in the deeper tissue, it will also create long term benefits by stimulating the body’s natural collagen fiber production. As new pockets of collagen gradually encapsulate the sutures and cones, it will improve the mid-face contours due to enhanced lift and fresh facial volume.
New collagen generation creates deeper and more natural looking results because the volumizing of the depleted facial areas happens from inside. The results are also longer lasting because fresh collagen fibers help to stabilize the facial tissue.
The minimally invasive Silhouette InstaLift procedure can be comfortably performed in an office setting. It will take only about 30 to 45 minutes to complete the procedure. The treatment provider will first numb the affected area with a local anesthetic. Thereafter, the properitary threaded cones of Silhouette InstaLift will be gently and precisely placed into the targeted facial tissue.
Very small needles will be used for the placement of threaded cones to ensure minimal bruising and discomfort. The InstaLift specialist will then position the cones in a bi-directional manner with the openings facing each other, squeezing the tissue and enhancing the lift of the mid-face contours.
Recovery and Results
No specific recovery time is involved in this procedure. Most patients will go back to their normal routine quickly. Minor bruising and swelling at the injection site will occur initially, but will dissipate rapidly on its own.
The patient will be able to notice the results immediately, but final results will continue to improve over several months. The aesthetic benefits of Silhouette Instalift can last for up to 18 months. Profound and successful plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Virginia and other cities and towns in The Old Dominion State for this procedure.
