Let’s face it, the traditional facelift surgery had extended downtime, severe scarring and left patients with the appearance of “having work done.” At Advanced Liposuction Center, we have another solution: the Silhouette Facelift.

Aging Happens

There’s no stopping it. As we age, the structure of our face changes. Skin naturally loses fat and elasticity and gravity takes its toll creating flat cheeks, jowls, and bags under the eyes. Facial muscles can weaken, especially around your cheeks and lips. The end result is a tired, saggy looking face. Add to this other factors that can take a toll on your face:

  • Sun damage
  • Smoking
  • Pollution and environmental factors
  • Genetics

Then sun spots, spider veins, wrinkles, irregular coloring (age spots) and fine lines may all appear on your face.

Why Choose Silhouette

The Silhouette Facelift restores the youthful appearance of your face. It is a minimally invasive treatment approved by the FDA that utilizes the thread lifting technique, which encompasses permanent silhouette sutures with tiny, absorbable cones to lift and reposition the tissues of the face.

Some of the advantages of the Silhouette Facelift are that it is performed in office, under local anesthesia. The entire procedure takes approximately 2 hours and will restore the neck and lower half of the face. The cones will dissolve after 34 months, lifting the sutures for up to 5 years. At that time a touch up procedure can be performed that takes about 30 minutes. Post surgery, patients experience mild swelling and soreness for 2 to 4 days.

Additional Treatments

When you opt for a Silhouette Facelift, there are several other non-surgical treatments you may want to consider to help augment the results of your facelift. These include: microdermabrasions, photofacials, fillers, botox and laser treatments. Our highly experienced cosmetic surgeons will meet with you and help you decide what the best combination of treatments is for you to restore the firm, youthful appearance of your face. We have nine convenient locations in the greater Pittsburgh area. Interested in learning more about this innovative procedure? Contact us for a free consultation by calling: 724-683-7581.
