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 face lift 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 cones. This means that the thread will dissolve over time. If further lifting is needed, the threads can be tightened.
