Thread Lifts in Wellesley, MA, at Wellesley Plastic Surgery

Silhouette InstaLift procedure helps patients who are not ready for a facelift to improve their facial appearance.

The InstaLift thread lift can lift slightly sagging jowls and other areas of the face and neck using specially engineered absorbable sutures (threads) containing small cones. These cones help keep the facial tissues elevated creating a younger and more refreshed look. The procedure requires no surgical incisions and is done under local anesthesia in our surgical center. There is virtually no downtime associated with an InstaLift procedure.

If you have started to notice subtle aging changes to your facial appearance and want to do something about it, then you may be a candidate for a new minimally invasive procedure called Silhouette InstaLift. Fill out our online form or call us at (781) 239-0680 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Arthur Shektman to learn more.

Candidates For A Thread Lift

The best candidates for the Silhouette InstaLift procedure are people who are just beginning to exhibit early signs of facial aging: early jowling with slight loss of jawline definition, slight sagging of the neck skin and muscles, and a loss of volume in the cheeks.

During your consultation, Dr. Shektman will perform a thorough exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for the thread lift, or other facial rejuventaion procedures like a facelift, neck lift or eyelid surgery. Dr. Shektman will explain the procedure and all the possible alternatives that may exist.

How Long Are The Results Of The Silhouette InstaLift Expected To Last?

The longevity of the thread lift depends on several factors: patient’s age, lifestyle, general state of health, as well as the type and quality of a patient’s skin. In general, the results may be expected to last up to two years. The results will be apparent immediately after the thread lift is completed.

Both dermal fillers and Botox® or Xeomin® can greatly complement and enhance the results of the thread lift. Often, these procedures are combined in the same session. However, dermal fillers and Botox cannot be substituted for the InstaLift procedure.

Does InstaLift Involve Incisions Or General Anesthesia?

Neither incisions nor general anesthesia is necessary. The procedure is done only with local anesthesia. Our award-winning practice focuses on maximizing our patient satisfaction by achieving natural looking results.
