With the Silhoutte Soft Lift Sutures, the threads with cones can be inserted under just simple local anesthesia below the skin to cause a mid cheek lift or to lift the cheek pads that has "dropped". The procedure is a 30 min in clinic procedure that is almost painless and requires no general anesthesia.
Areas can be treated with this technique are lifting of brows, lifting of mid face area, lifting of cheek fat pad that has dropped, lifting of the lower cheek (jowls) along the jawline and creating a better jawline and definition of the face. Once done, patients can walk out of the clinic with barely any visible marks. AS this sutures are also resorbable, there will not be any foreign body objects in the skin after 8-10moinths of insertion.
