Dr. Marosan will use a skin marker to mark the needle size entrance and exit points within the facial skin. A local anesthetic like lidocaine will be injected into the skin before the Silhouette InstaLift sutures are threaded into the 3 sets of puncture points, which will hold up the soft tissues of the face. Then, Dr. Marosan will adjust the biomedical sutures on your face for the perfect placement. The remaining sutures will be trimmed down at the skin level. Please follow all your plastic surgeon's aftercare instructions, which can include using cold packs the first dayt after the procedure. The cones and sutures dissolve within 6 weeks and collagen production replaces the sutures to jump start the healing process for beautiful aesthetic results.

Silhouette InstaLift FAQs
WILL I LOOK Over Done?
The Silhouette InstaLift will give you natural-looking results. In your customized treatment plan with Dr. Marosan, you should discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns, especially if you are worried your surgery will make your skin look too pulled back or "over done." Great measures will also be taken to conceal your sutures, and to make your changes as subtle and authentic as possible.
WILL I HAVE TO TAKE TIME OFF?
The great news about having the Silhouette InstaLift is that you will have less downtime than a full facelift surgery. The procedure itself takes less than 45 min – 1 hour as an out-patient procedure. Your downtime and recovery will be very short, and you will see results immediately. When talking about your aftercare instructions with Dr. Marosan, the amount of time you will need to take off will be determined in accordance to exactly what you have had performed (as many men and women combine plastic surgery procedures for maximized results).
CAN I COMBINE PROCEDURES?
Yes. Many men and women who have the Silhouette InstaLift combine their skin rejuvenation treatments for truly amazing results.
- Noninvasive facial rejuvenation: To even out the tone and texture of aging skin, we may recommend that patients also have microneedling, laser skin resurfacing, and other rejuvenation treatments to help the skin feel smoother and softer.
- Dermal fillers: To fill in lost facial volume, patients can also opt for injectable dermal fillers to temporarily fill in the hallow areas (cheeks, lips, chin) for a more refined look.
- Skin tightening: To make the skin look firmer and less loose, we can offer skin tightening with lasers, radio frequency, and ultrasound technologies.
- Wrinkle relaxers: To decrease the visibility of wrinkles, our plastic surgeon can also combine your Silhouette InstaLift with cosmetic injections of BOTOX® or other injectables that improve facial wrinkles.
