If you have started to notice subtle aging changes to your facial appearance and want to do something to nip that in the bud, then you may well be a good candidate for a revolutionary new procedure called InstaLift. For those people who see slight jowling and loss of definition in the jawline and neck, but are not ready for a facelift, a minimally invasive Silhouette InstaLift may be the answer. For those patients who have developed more extensive signs of facial aging, a surgical facelift may be a better way to look younger. To determine if a Silhouette InstaLift or a surgical facelift is right for you, contact Wellesley Cosmetic Surgery today.
In Boston, Who Needs A Face Lift?
The best candidates for the Silhouette InstaLift procedure are people who are just beginning to exhibit signs of facial aging: early jowling with slight loss of jawline definition, slight sagging of the neck skin and muscles and loss of volume in cheeks. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure and will discuss all the options open to you.
The best candidates for a surgical facelift are people with more advanced signs of facial aging such as loss of jawline definition and moderate to severe jowling, as well as loose neck skin and prominent neck muscle bands. While discussing your goals during the consultation, all options available to you will be fully explained.
How Long Does A Facelift Last?
Results will vary depending on the patient’s age, lifestyle and skin quality and type. In general, the results of an InstaLift may be expected to last about two years. The results of a surgical facelift can last, on average, up to ten years.
What Does InstaLift Do?
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive way to lift slightly sagging areas of the face using specially engineered absorbable sutures containing small cones, which anchor the tissues in a higher position. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and requires virtually no downtime.
A surgical facelift tightens the muscles and supporting structures of the face directly with use of hi-tech sutures. Loose skin is also removed during the procedure.
Where are InstaLift Incisions?
There are no incisions necessary.
Where are facelift incisions?
The facelift incisions typically are hidden under the chin and around the ears.
InstaLift vs. Fillers
Dermal fillers and Xeomin/Botox can greatly enhance and complement the results of the InstaLift procedure. However, fillers and Xeomin cannot be substitutes for InstaLift.
When Will I See InstaLift or Face Lift Results?
The InstaLift results will be visible immediately after the procedure. The facelift results will become obvious as the swelling subsides.
