Silhouette InstaLift™

We’ve all done it. That thing you do when you place your fingers on each side of your face to lift your skin as you gaze in the mirror. Silhouette InstaLift™ does this same thing, but the lift lasts.

Thanks to a new advanced technology, Visage Surgical Institute now provides a minimally invasive solution for men and women with saggy facial skin who want to avoid surgery, injections, and lasers. Dr. Quereshy has undergone special comprehensive training and is thoroughly knowledgeable with the techniques required to perform this highly successful treatment.

What is a Silhouette InstaLift™?

Silhouette InstaLift™ is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that addresses skin laxity in the cheeks and jowls with the lifting and tightening benefits of a facelift. Specifically, Dr. Quereshy uses fully resorbable sutures to lift deep layers of the skin. The sutures have bi-directional cones that hold the sutures and cheek sub-dermis in the desired lifted position.

Why a Silhouette InstaLift™ — The Benefits

Minimally invasive facelifts are the way of the future, and Silhouette InstaLift™ is leading the way. As they re-contour and lift the skin, these low-maintenance procedures yield subtle, natural-looking results. What are the benefits exactly?

  • No surgery — no incisions, scarring, or anesthesia
  • No traditional facelift stigma — simply a minor cosmetic treatment
  • No evidence — modern soluble, invisible thread material used
  • Low cost — a fraction of the cost of a surgical facelift
  • Minimal downtime — no time-consuming recovery
  • No waiting — Immediate results

Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment Areas

Silhouette InstaLift™ is used on the cheek and mid-face region to temporarily lift the cheek sub dermis.

How a Silhouette InstaLift™ Works — The Procedure Process


During your consultation, Dr. Quereshy will review your medical history and current medications and help you decide if an Instalift would be a good fit for you. If you are allergic or sensitive to plastic biomaterial or if you have excessively thin or heavy skin, Dr. Quereshy may recommend an alternative treatment. However, if you have suitable skin quality with moderate sagging, you may be an ideal candidate. We look forward to discussing your cosmetic goals and expectations, so we can ensure our Silhouette InstaLift™ procedure is tailored to your desired outcome.


The beauty of a Silhouette InstaLift™ is that it is performed in our office by our highly trained specialist, Dr. Quereshy, in only 45 minutes. Our patients report that the treatment is pain-free, as we numb the area with a local anesthetic while Dr. Quereshy inserts tiny absorbable sutures to a depth of 5mm that gently lift skin as they are tightened.


You will experience immediate results and almost zero downtime, so jumping back into your busy schedule is what’s to be expected. Over the next several months, the disintegrating sutures will continue to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and trigger an increase in collagen production, restoring volume and boosting firmness to the skin. Typically, results last between 18-36 months.

It’s not uncommon to experience minor pain, swelling, and bruising at the insertion sites immediately following the procedures, but these symptoms can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medications and usually disappear within a few days. Dr. Quereshy will discuss post-treatment recommendations to ensure the best possible results.

An aftercare program may include:

  • Immediate application of wrapped cold packs.
  • Acetominophen to decrease pain.
  • Waiting for 24 hours to apply make-up.
  • Sleeping face up and elevated with pillows for a few nights.
  • Gentle washing, shaving and drying the first week.
  • Avoidance of excessive face and neck movement, exposure to direct sunlight, and high impact sports for a couple weeks.
  • Avoidance of saunas, dental surgery, and facial treatments for a month.
