What is a Silhouette Lift?
Silhouette-Lift is a new technique developed for use with Silhouette Sutures, a new suspension thread. This minimally invasive technique is used to lift and reposition sagging brow mid face or neck tissue. Silhouette Sutures offer significantly greater lift due to their unique absorbable cones which give strong traction when lifting the soft tissue. The sutures are attached to the fascia. To achieve this, a small incision is made above the hairline, where the sutures are anchored.
