LIFT, TIGHTEN AND REJUVENATE THE FACE WITH SILHOUETTE SOFT
|ABSORBABLE THREAD LIFT THAT TARGETS PROBLEM AREAS AND CREATES THE EFFECT OF A MINI-FACELIFT|
Thread Lift |
One of the most effective procedures that immediately lifts the face is the new, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift, which rejuvenates and tightens the face without patients having to undergo surgery.
Using absorbable threads and cones to reposition and contour the soft facial tissues, the Silhouette Soft Thread Lift can either be performed to create a mini-facelift effect or target specific areas that have lost volume including the neck, cheeks, jowls and around the eyes and lips.
Fine needles are used to insert the threads through small but precise incisions under the skin. Anchored with a mesh and cone, the threads are then pulled to reposition the skin to create the lifting effect.
Over the next six months the dissolvable Polylactic acid threads will also stimulate collagen production and help replenish the volume for a further 12-15 months; an effect that will continue to create a more youthful shape to the face.
Performed under a local an anaesthetic to minimise discomfort, the absorbable threads equally reduce the possibility of infection or a reaction to any foreign bodies beneath the surface of the skin.
The Silhouette Soft procedure is best suited for patients with moderate cases of sagging skin (ages 35-65).
During your consultation with Dr Chang, your suitability for the procedure will be discussed along with the number of threads that will be required.
DOWNTIME: A 90-minute procedure which will leave you with some swelling and bruising for two-four days. The procedure also uses absorbable sutures. FOLLOW UP SESSIONS: Every 15-18 months to maintain the lifting effect. As a specialist plastic surgeon trained in maxilla-facial surgery and the Silhouette Soft method, Dr Chang will further draw upon his expertise to optimise the results.
F A Q S
Introducing Dr Lionel Chang [MB BS FRACS] on the Silhouette Soft “Mini-Face Lift”.
In the video presentation, Dr Chang discusses the benefits of a Silhouette Soft Face Lift, a minimally invasive procedure that lifts the skin, restores volume, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and contours the face along the jaw line, cheeks and eyebrows. He also discusses the process of inserting absorbable thread cones under the skin with a fine needle and how over time, the biodegradable cones and threads break down and triggers the production collagen for a youthful and regenerative effect.
Results may vary with patients and a consultation with Dr Chang will be required to ensure that the patient is suited for the procedure.
