Silhouette ThreadLift procedure is a non-surgical facelift technique that Dr. Andrew Jacono performs on patients that want to look younger with a more lifted appearance of the entire face to include the neck and brow region, without the need for surgery. Dr. Jacono is considered one of the top facial plastic surgeons in New York who specializes in this minimally invasive procedure of the face.
What is a Silhouette Threadlift?
The Silhouette Threadlift is a FDA approved procedure that uses very thin and flexible sutures to lift sagging areas of the face to include the cheeks, eyebrows and forehead region, and the neck. Dr Jacono places the threads just beneath the surface of the skin and uses them to pull the sagging tissue to a lifted and more youthful position. By using this facial rejuvenation approach, Dr. Jacono enables his patients to look younger with natural facial contouring.
The silhouette sutures are then left in place to provide the necessary support for the lifted areas of the face to remain in place. As the body produces new collagen, the sutures are further supported and held in place more permanently as the collagen and fibers grow around the threads.
The Silhouette sutures are made out a non-absorbable material called polypropylene which has been used for many years in other types of surgeries. They are so small and thin, that they are undetectable from under the skin.
Areas of the Face that can be Lifted with a Silhouette ThreadLift:
- Mid-face and Cheeks
What to Expect from a Silhouette Threadlift?
A Silhouette Threadlift procedure is done under a local anesthesia and takes roughly 45 mins to an hour for Dr. Jacono to complete. Some mild bruising and swelling may be present during the recovery period but should subside on its own in about a week.
Since this is a non-surgical technique, most patients can drive themselves home following the procedure which makes this an ideal solution for patients who want to restore a more youthful appearance without any real downtime.
Patients will be able to see the results immediately and most report that they still look rejuvenated up to 5 years later.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Silhouette Threadlift?
For men and women who are over the age of 30, in general good health, and are looking for an immediate way to achieve the results of a facelift without the need for surgery or an incision, the Silhouette Threadlift might be a great choice.
As we age, our skin and underlying tissues lose their elasticity and begin to droop down and sag. For those men and women who are just starting to see themselves in the mirror and recognize the sagging skin, the Silhouette Threadlift may be a good choice to help reverse the effects of aging. This also a great procedure for previous patients who may have had a facelift procedure over 10 years ago and want to restore some of that lifting.
Benefits of a Silhouette Threadlift Include:
- Immediate Results
- A Lifted and More Youthful Appearance
- Non-Surgical Faclifting Approach
- Shorter Surgery / Procedure Time Frame
- Shorter Recovery Time
