Silhouette InstaLift in Rancho Cucamonga
Tired of looking older but not quite ready to commit to a facelift? Our experienced team of cosmetic surgeons can provide you with similar, long-lasting results without the downtime.
Facelift surgery is considered to be one of the best ways to get a dramatic reduction in drooping facial skin and deeply etched lines—and though many non-surgical options have arisen over the last few years, nothing can quite compare. But what about those who are just starting to notice these signs of aging and aren’t quite ready for a drastic step?
Our talented team of cosmetic surgeons are proud to offer the Silhouette InstaLift™, a minimally invasive facelift alternative that lifts sagging tissues for an instantly refreshed and refined look.
What is Silhouette InstaLift?
The Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses specially designed sutures to both instantly lift the face and also provide a natural scaffolding that prompts your body’s natural production of collagen for a long-lasting improvement of skin elasticity and volume.
The Silhouette InstaLift sutures are small, thread-like structures that have bi-directional cones made from poly-L-lactic acid that is naturally aborbed by your skin over the course of about two years. The thin sutures help anchor your underlying facial tissues to a lifted, more youthful position instantaneously.

What can Silhouette InstaLift treat?
While the InstaLift isn’t a full substitute for a facelift, we’ve found that a large number of our patients who have early signs of sagging, jowling, and skin laxity can benefit greatly from the procedure.
When you schedule a private consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons, they’ll listen to your concerns and examine your face, paying particular attention to the quality of your skin and how severe your concerns are. While only they can tell you whether or not an InstaLift or other procedure will work best to meet your needs, patients who get great results from the InstaLift have a few things in common:
- Mild or moderate sagging, folding in the cheeks, or jowling along the jaw
- The desire for a subtle lift
- Skin that isn’t too thick
Patients with deep-set wrinkles or significant wrinkles may be more satisfied with the results we can achieve through facelift surgery.
What is the InstaLift procedure like?
The InstaLift procedure typically takes around 45 minutes to an hour and is performed in our office using only local anesthesia. Using two very thin needles, your surgeon will insert the device through two small points on each side of your face, adjusting the tension of the suture to achieve the most natural looking lift.
Because you will not be under general anesthesia, we’ll be able to adjust the sutures in a way that works well with your dynamic facial movements—and you won’t have to deal with the post-anesthesia hangover. There are no incisions, and the small needles used typically only cause minor swelling, mild bruising, and slight tenderness for a day or so.
You’ll notice the improvement right away, and you’ll get to enjoy additional improvement as your collagen rebuilds and the quality of your skin improves. Patients can expect to have a firmer, more lifted appearance for years to come.
