One Stitch Facelift

Silhouette Soft Lift

We offer One stitch facelift from our clinics in London and Glasgow.

The Silhouette Soft Lift is a new procedure designed to lift the skin of the face and neck. The procedure has sometimes been dubbed the ‘one stitch facelift’, although this is technically inaccurate since we normally use two or three stitches on each side of the face / neck to achieve optimal results.

The procedure can be used to lift any part of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck. In practice, I find the stitches to be most useful in the lower face and neck, where other non-surgical techniques usually provide less satisfying results.

How does the procedure work?

The procedure begins by first identifying the problem areas of excess skin and marking out where each suture – or stitch – should be placed. Some local anaesthetic is then injected to make the procedure a pain free experience. The stitches contain small cones along their length (similar, if you like, to barbed wire) and are inserted using long needles. After the stitches are in place they are then pulled back to re-suspend the skin and soft tissues, whilst the small cones along their length anchor the tissues in their new – more youthful – position.

The benefit of this technique is that it is a truly minimally invasive way of lifting the skin. Previous ‘thread lift’ techniques have used small incisions behind the hairline and behind the ear to insert the sutures and so have been associated with significant bruising, swelling and ‘down time’ afterwards. The Silhouette Soft lift however has no cutting or scarring and very minimal down time – most patients resume normal activities immediately and go back to work the very next day.
