We are proud to offer a non-surgical minimally invasive facelift. Dr Sagoo has been trained by one of the top doctors of this procedure in the UK. The Silhouette Soft procedure is a nonsurgical facelift performed on the mid-face and cheek area. It uses special sutures, comprised of a biomedical copolymer and containing bidirectional cones. The body absorbs the material, and the bidirectional cones anchor to the subcutaneous tissue, lifting and repositioning it. 

The Silhouette  Soft procedure addresses signs of ageing caused by gravity, such as sagging skin, creating a sharper jawline, enhancing the face’s contours, and lifting the deeper skin layers for a more youthful appearance. With no incisions, patients experience no scarring, and Silhouette’s biodegradable material is FDA-approved and dissolves completelyThe side effects are so minimal that patients may return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure.

Procedure of silhouette soft

Preparation: Begin preparing for your procedure at least two weeks ahead of time, especially if you take blood-thinning medications or smoke. Blood-thinning medications include NSAIDs like aspirin and Ibuprofen, as well as certain vitamins and supplements like Gingko Biloba. 

  1. Anaesthesia: Silhouette InstaLift requires only local anaesthesia. Discuss your anaesthesia options with Dr Sagoo during your preoperative consultation. 
  1. Preoperative Consult: Bring any questions you have about the procedure and postoperative care to discuss with Dr Sagoos, as well as your medical history. Also, share your goals in undergoing this procedure to allow the doctor to help manage your expectations. 

Silhouette Soft

After applying the local anaesthesia, Dr Sagoo gently inserts a needle to a depth of 5mm, guiding it through the subcutaneous tissue, extracting at each exit point, which anchors the bidirectional cones. These protrusions allow the thread to anchor evenly and lift sagging facial tissues. The procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, and the patient may immediately resume his or her normal activities. As the suture and cones are absorbed, they add needed volume to the cheeks. On average, approximately three sutures are used for each side of the face.
