Your Guide to Threadlifts

Facial Surgery in Indianapolis, INGetting a facelift sometimes seems like a good idea, but it can also feel daunting to take on. Thankfully, technology came to save the day with new non-surgical alternatives that can take years off your appearance without any of the scalpels. There are a variety of options including Injectable fillers, skin tightening devices and threadlifts.  Here’s what you need to know when considering a threadlift procedure.

What is a Threadlift? 

Threadlifts are used to lift and reposition lax facial tissues to rejuvenate the face. At Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hamilton and skilled Nurse Practitioners use a method called the Silhouette InstaLift™. This technique uses absorbable threads made from PLLA to both lift tissues and stimulate collagen production.

How Much Does a Silhouette Instalift cost? 

It is impossible to give an exact price without a consultation with one or our providers. The cost of an instalift depends on how much work needs to be done. The most basic lift will run in the $2500 range. The costs may rise if more threads need to be placed. Generally, the best way to figure out the cost of your non-surgical facelift is to go to a scheduled consultation with Dr. Hamilton or one of our Nurse Practioners. At Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hamilton makes sure to sit down with each patient, listen to their concerns and create a fully personalized treatment plan for them.

What Exactly is the Silhouette InstaLift™? 

We know what you’re thinking – what is this technique anyways? This procedure involves the use of a device with bidirectional cones. The device is placed into the soft tissue under the skin, and gently lifts and repositions the skin in the midface for a smoother and more youthful overall appearance. The best part about this device is that your results continue to improve over time. Not only will you see immediate results from your procedure, but you’ll also see volume added to the face as the device triggers the body’s natural production of collagen in the skin. The dual-action procedure gives you the immediate results you desire with results lasting about 6 months. 

What are the Benefits of a Threadlift? 

Outside of the obvious fact that it does not require traditional surgery, there are many benefits to getting a non-surgical facelift, including: 

  • No general anesthesia
  • No scarring
  • Little to no discomfort
  • Quick 45-minute procedure
  • Performed in-office
  • Less costly than a surgical facelift
