For patients in Virginia Beach and Newport News, Dr. Carney is proud to offer the Silhouette Lift. If you’ve ever desired a younger appearance and facial rejuvenation without having to undergo general anesthesia or spend time recovering from major surgery, a Silhouette Lift may be right for you.
What is a Silhouette Lift?
It is a non-invasive treatment for sagging facial tissue, ideal for addressing signs of aging including sagging jowls or deep creases, nasolabial folds and marionette lines, without major surgery.
A Silhouette Lift uses special sutures, called Silhouette Sutures, to lift and reposition sagging tissue. These sutures are tension sutures and absorbable by the body. The suture can be inserted from a small opening in the hairline, secured to the proper tissue in the jawline, then brought to the correct tension, and secured back in the hairline. According to the markers of the Silhouette Suture, typical treatment offers visible improvement for up to 2 years.
Silhouette Lift Benefits
