Frequently Asked Questions
How does Silhouette work?
The procedure itself is classified as a non invasive procedure and only takes one hour to complete. It is therefore performed on an outpatient basis. It requires only a local anesthetic, with light sedation given on request.
Incisions are made in specific anatomical sites, most commonly the hair line. A threaded needle is then inserted under the skin in skin to secure both ends, to provide lift and suspension of the lax skin.
There are numerous methods of the technique, and these may be adopted to accommodate specific patient needs or may be a personal preference for the surgeon. The number of threads used varies, and often depends on specific patient needs after a thorough consultation and assessment.
Techniques can also be combined in order to create the most natural outcome for the patient. Once the individual’s condition has been assessed, generally between 2 and 20 threads will be used.
Do I need to fast before the procedure?
Yes, Patients will be asked to fast for 12 hours prior to treatment and cessation of smoking must be adhered to as the risk of complication is increased.
The recovery period post procedure is somewhat less than that of a traditional facelift. Post surgical pain can be easily managed using paracetamol Patients are advised to keep their head elevated when resting at home to reduce swelling. A healing time of 1-3 weeks is expected.
