"Perfect! No more gynecomastia, love handles or belly fat - Dr. Marosan made my dream come true. No more gynecomastia, no more love handles, no more belly fat. I'm the person I've always wanted to be. Everyday I look at myself in the mirror and thank my lucky stars that I met Dr. Marosan."- B. / RealSelf / Jan 07, 2023
"Couldn't be more pleased - my breasts are so soft and natural - I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience and the results. My breasts are so soft and natural. I highly recommend Dr. Marosan and his staff and will definitely be seeing him for any future procedures."- P. / RealSelf / Jan 03, 2023
"Gynecomastia surgery - 3 months later and I could not be happier with the result! - I previously had gynecomastia surgery and then an additional correction, both procedures were with a different doctor and both procedures did nothing but leave me with scarring. I thought it would be a good idea to try one more time and thank goodness I did! Dr. Marosan explained everything perfectly and made me feel really comfortable moving forward. 3 months later and I could not be happier with the result! I would recommend Dr. Marosan to anybody considering getting work done. 10/10"- R. / RealSelf / Dec 16, 2022
"The surgery went well, but felt rushed after - I would give Dr Marosan a 9/10. I am conflicted between the 4 and the 5 stars, btu given my results I will lean up.The surgery went well, but after the fact things felt a little rushed. 15 minute time slots for appointments where you are taking 6 photos isnt a lot of time to discuss what needs to be done for successful recovery. After my first of these I to looked around online for more information and found what I was hoping for. For the price I was expecting a more personalized experience. All went well though, my results are exactly what I was hoping for and I am glad I did the procedure. It has been 7 or so months and I hardly think about it anymore."- N. / RealSelf / Nov 28, 2022
"Ab Etching Dramatically Increased my Motivation! - In Sep 2021 I had VASER Hi-def lipo, gynecomastia, and abdominal etching work performed by Dr. Marosan. Being former military, I previously tried to just force body discipline by 5am sessions with a personal trainer, random gym apps, CrossFit (twice), but still couldn't get (and maintain) my body the way I wanted. I knew I didn't need the motivation of group support, and if I could just find the right catalyst then I could do this on my own. So I bought a Tonal machine for at home workouts, and went in for the procedure with the objective that the surgery was just the start of my fitness journey (for immediate visual motivation), versus the end (ie no more work needed). I was fortunate to live right down the street from a respected true master of his craft who could do this work on me! Dr. Marosan fully explained what would happen, why he would do certain things, and equally important why he would not do other things that I'd found online (like sculpting a sixpack into the abdominal fat so I'd look like Batman 24/7). Not much to share on the procedure itself, I remember going in and laying on the table, and next thing I know I was getting up and wheeled out to my ride. I did have a few drainage tubes for a week which were a pain to manage for bathroom trips, and the garment/foam isn't the most comfortable, but once the tubes came out and the swelling went down things greatly improved.A year after surgery and I know that seeing the difference in my body has helped me make better dietary choices, and has kept me motivated with my workouts. This was definitely one of the best decisions I've made for myself, as I see the results every single day and know that it's 100% up to me to continue the work to highlight the impact of the sculpting even more. As I put in more work (nutrition & exercise), I now see the impact faster, and the benefit is more pronounced. If you're on the fence, just treat yourself & go in for a consultation, you won't regret it!(my pics are on his website gallery)"- F. / RealSelf / Oct 07, 2022
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.
