The Silhouette Lift is a revolutionary new way to combat the signs of aging skin. New York board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Yael Halaas performs the Silhouette Lift at her Manhattan office.
A Brief History of “Thread Face Lifts”
The minimally-invasive thread facelift technique was developed to lift sagging skin. However, while early attempts to use thread to lift different layers of facial tissues showed promise, the results were short-lived. Improvements would only last 1 to 3 months. Today, the technique has been improved and plastic surgeons are able to achieve enduring results.
The Silhouette Soft Lift is a further refinement of the original thread lift. Instead of using a fine thread with small barbs that lift the skin, the Silhouette Soft technique uses a stronger thread that has a bioabsorbable cone. This means that the thread will dissolve over time. If further lifting is needed, the threads can be tightened.
