Silhouette InstaLift™

As we age, our skin loses its youthful elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and unwanted facial sagging. At the Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of both surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation options that can be tailored to your unique cosmetic objectives. While some patients are perfect candidates for facelift surgery, those who desire a younger-looking aesthetic without undergoing an invasive procedure may consider the Silhouette InstaLift™. The Silhouette InstaLift™ provides patients with a natural and revitalized appearance with only minimal downtime.

What Do You Desire?


Youthful Skin

Signs of aging, such as skin laxity and wrinkles, can produce an undesirable, aged appearance. Treatment with innovative Silhouette InstaLift™ technology targets sagging in the mid and lower face, lifting and smoothing facial creases and resulting in a refreshed aesthetic.

Improved Facial Contours

One of the effects of aging is the displacement of facial fat, which can obscure the natural contours beneath. Silhouette InstaLift™ provides dual benefits in that it lifts sagging tissues and repositions facial volume to give patients beautiful results.

Natural Rejuvenation

Silhouette InstaLift™ not only lifts facial tissues to a more youthful position, but it also stimulates the body’s production of newer, healthier collagen. An enhanced collagen supply helps to restructure the skin naturally and can yield long-lasting effects.

Minimal Downtime

Many patients hesitate to undergo surgical facial enhancement procedures because they typically require a lengthy or uncomfortable recovery. Those who opt for treatment with Silhouette InstaLift™ can enjoy quick and effective rejuvenation results with only a brief period of downtime.

Your Silhouette InstaLift™ Consultation

Your private consultation at Thompson Plastic Surgery is an essential part of your cosmetic journey. After your concerns are assessed, a customized Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment plan is devised to address your needs and give you the results you desire.

Silhouette InstaLift™ Process


The skin around the treatment area is cleansed, and local sedation is administered to ensure patient comfort. General anesthesia is not required, and this procedure can be performed in-office with ease.


The patented dissolvable Silhouette InstaLift™ sutures are inserted into the deeper layers of the skin in the midface or cheek areas. This procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.


Patients will notice an immediate improvement after their Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment. Results will continue to improve over the next three to six months as the body produces more healthy collagen to renew the skin.

Silhouette InstaLift™ FAQs

Patients who undergo treatment with Silhouette InstaLift™ may experience some soreness for a couple of days after their procedure. Daily activities can be resumed comfortably within one to two days.
Serious complications following treatment with Silhouette InstaLift™ are rare, but potential side effects may include minor bruising, swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. Dimpling of the mid face can occur where the sutures are placed, but this typically lasts anywhere from approximately a few days to a couple of weeks.
The sutures placed during Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment can take as long as 18 months to dissolve. Because this procedure helps the body replenish its stores of collagen, the results can be expected to last even after the sutures are absorbed into the skin.
