Silhouette Facelift – The Face lifting without scars
The unique, innovative and comprehensive culture at Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery strives to provide a wide variety of new, state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation procedures. Dr. Zemplenyi and his team introduce to the Northwest the Silhouette Lift TM–a minimally invasive “lunch time facelift” to rejuvenate the early, mild to moderate facial aging changes commonly seen in women and men beginning in their forties. Unlike any other thread lifts, the Silhouette Lift does not use permanent, barbed sutures! Instead, several bio-absorbable cones become anchored in the subcutaneous (under the skin) tissue layer and allow for upward lifting and suspension of cheeks and other tissues. This revolutionary, FDA-approved mid-cheek lift procedure can be performed under local anesthesia in about one hour, and unlike the surgical Lifestyle Lift ® it does not leave any visible scars. It also differs from and is less invasive than the Endotine lift ®.
Since being FDA-approved in the United States in 2006, the Silhouette Lift has evolved and improved further with thousands of procedures successfully performed on patients worldwide. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, does not leave any visible scars and patient may resume normal activities in as early as two to three days. It is a simpler alternative to more conventional facial rejuvenation surgery in properly selected patients.
While some of our patients choose the Silhouette Liftunder local anesthesia, others may prefer to combine it with twilight sleep and add some of the other complementary procedures available at our center. Procedures such as fat lipo-transfer volume augmentation with platelet-rich plasma, fractionated Smart Skin CO2 laser resurfacing and Smart-Lipo tissue tightening can augment the rejuvenating effect. Others may choose to combine the Silhouette Liftwith the sequential, entirely non-invasive skin tightening using the radiofrequency Viora Reaction TM. The array of choices is broad and exciting -procedures which leave minimal scarring or down time.
