The Silhouette Instalift Procedure
Dr. Greenberg will perform the Silhouette Instalift procedure at his Manhattan or Long Island office. He will insert the Contour Threads into precise locations using a long needle. The placement of the threads will vary from patient to patient. Once inserted under the skin, the threads’ tiny barbs will open in an umbrella-like fashion to form a support structure that gently lifts and repositions the tissues into a more vertical and youthful position. With the lift effect secured, the needle is removed and the end of the thread is cut and knotted, allowing it to retract deeper under the skin where it cannot be felt or seen. The non-absorbable threads stay within the deep tissues and provide support.
The Silhouette Instalift takes about an hour to complete and is usually performed under local anesthesia. Usually only one procedure is needed to achieve the desired lifting effect.
