Over time the implanted PLGA suture and cones also stimulate collagen production to help increase and restore volume to the mid-face for natural-looking, long lasting results. Dr. Henry Mentz and his specially-trained nurse practitioner, Renee, offer Silhouette InstaLift for patients looking to improve the collagen and volume in their cheeks.

Procedure Technique

During the in-office procedure, a specially-trained physician will begin by marking the cheek areas mapping out the suture placement on the patient. Local anesthesia is given in small amounts where the punctures will be made. The physician will then gently insert a needle to depth of 5mm and guide it through the subcutaneous tissue to the nasolabial fold and a second needle is used to pass the suture segment up to the temple.

The central portion of the suture has small cones with me at that allow the suture to be ratcheted or clicked up in order to lift the cheek and flatten the nasolabial fold. The suture is tightened and the cheek is lifted to smooth and elevate the cheek fat pad up onto the cheekbone. The suture and small cones actually provide some volume and plumpness over the cheek.

Optimum patients for the Silhouette InstaLift are patients with visible nasolabial folds and thicker skin. Other advantages are patients with relatively long faces, since the technique will lift the cheek fat pad and plump it as well. Thin-skinned patients and patients with wide faces may not be good candidates. Patients should be off of aspirin, Advil and Aleve for at least seven days prior to the procedure.
