Silhouette String Facelift in McAllen, TX

*Model. Not an actual patient.

Over the years, the aging face suffers a loss of bony support over the cheeks and around the nose. These changes, combined with gravity and the loss of collagen and elastin, contribute to sagging facial features. This loss of facial volume and elasticity leads to the formation of wrinkles, creases and folds. Traditionally, these changes were treated with extensive facelift surgeries that attempted to pull the skin back tight over the face. In addition to their extensive recovery time, scars, risks, and cost, facelifts neglect the underlying volume loss that contributes to the appearance of the aging face resulting in an artificial windswept appearance. Dr. Rodriguez is the only certified and trained surgeon for the Silhouette Lift, a minimally invasive alternative to surgery, in the Rio Grande Valley, and he has been selected to be the exclusive provider south of San Antonio.

What is the Silhouette String Facelift?

*Model. Not an actual patient.

The Silhouette Lift is a truly revolutionary technique that leaves no visible scars.

This procedure is performed in an outpatient setting without any general anesthesia. The Silhouette Lift involves resuspending and lifting saggy cheeks and jowls in the face, the neck, and even the buttocks. This resuspension of the mid-face and neck soft tissues is actually the key component of the traditional maximally invasive SMAS facelift surgery. Hence, the Silhouette sutures allow the surgeon to address the gravitational component of facial aging to eliminate peri-oral jowls and enhance the jawline without leaving noticeable scars.

How Does the Silhouette String Facelift Work?

The Silhouette threads are inserted through a micro-incision in the temporal region. These sutures are made from polypropylene, a biocompatible material with the human body, which has been used for many years in cardiovascular and ophthalmic surgery. The Silhouette Lift sutures are the most innovative sutures to date. They are not barbed, which avoids any tissue damage, and thanks to small re-absorbable cones which anchor themselves in deep tissue, a tension is produced that lifts the sagging tissue. It is the fibrosis around these absorbable cones that suture produces a much stronger suspension mechanism than traditional methods. Hence, the new Silhouette Lift sutures avoid problems of movement, breakage and pain, which occur with older barbed suture techniques.

The Silhouette Lift is ideal for correcting nasolabial folds, expression lines, as well as the oval of the face, cheeks and neck. Facial tiredness is erased, giving you a younger and very natural appearance for many years to come.

The procedure is a one-time surgery, and the Silhouette Lift technology makes it possible for Dr. Rodriguez to perform a resuspension if needed down the line to address the progressive facial sagging that occurs as a natural consequence of normal aging and gravity.

What is the Recovery Time from a Silhouette String Facelift?

The immediate recovery enables you to resume normal activities within 2 days. After 10 days, your face will recover its soft and natural aspect – but more refreshed. The idea is to create a rejuvenated appearance, not to change your natural beauty.
