What is an S-Lift facelift?

The medical name for a facelift is rhytidectomy. Surgical facelifts involve resecting the sagging skin and tying the SMAS facial muscle tightly to give it an overall lift and re-draping. But sometimes, due to certain medical or personal reasons, patients choose not to have a deep surgical facelift. An S-lift is considered a mini facelift and can be performed under local anesthesia without a long difficult recovery. It’s called an S-lift referring to the shape of the incision line. It is considered a mini-lift because the incision is kept small and the degree of dissection is less, therefore making the recovery easy and fast. Not everyone is a candidate and Dr. Shirazi may recommend combining this signature mini-lift with a liquid facelift for the best cosmetic results.

If you are not ready for a major facelift and are looking for an easy recovery with little scar lines, the mini S-lift is an excellent surgical choice. The S-lift will do an excellent job in lifting the lower third of the face, removing the sagging skin, and creating a natural more youthful face without the long recovery, long incisions, and general anesthesia of a deep plane facelift.

Woman Who Was Treated With Mohs Surgery Dermatology

Silhouette InstaLift

The collagen in our face reduces over time, resulting in droopy cheeks and hollow jowls. With the Silhouette InstaLift treatment, you can regain a more shapely and contoured face.

The Silhouette InstaLift is performed with the use of sutures made from material that will naturally be absorbed by your body over time. They can be used to lift the deep tissues of the face to provide a shapely look. The sutures have bidirectional cones to reposition and elevate the skin on your face while stimulating production of collagen.

The doctor will use the Silhouette InstaLift device to lift the muscles and tissues in the cheeks high into place, providing a superb definition and shape. The sutures will hold your facial tissues tightly in place, thereby giving you long-lasting results.

This is a minimally-invasive procedure and takes about 45 minutes to complete. The sutures will be applied deep in the skin, ensuring they aren’t visible on the surface. Feel free to give us a call or schedule a consultation to schedule your treatment.
