Silhouette buttock lift / Thread lift

What is the Silhouette buttock lift / Thread lift?

The Silhouette buttock lift/Thread lift procedure provides relief from loose skin in the butt and thighs, commonly the result of substantial weight loss or normal aging. This non-surgical buttock lift gives a significant, long-lasting lift that raises, repositions, and tightens the skin.

What is the procedure?

The Silhouette buttock lift / Thread lift procedure is accomplished through the strategic placement of Silhouette Lift® threads, which lift and support the buttocks. The threads are similar to those used in the Silhouette Lift® for the face and neck, but the Buttock Lift threads are much stronger. The Buttock Lift threads contain a series of special absorbable cones that ‘grab’ the tissue that needs to be repositioned and lifted.

The Silhouette buttock lift / Thread lift procedure is performed in two stages. During the first stage, the threads are inserted into the proper position. Then, about 30 days later, the threads are pulled and secured to create the lifting and contouring effect to the buttocks. Silhouette buttock lift procedure is performed under local anesthesia and there is very little to no downtime.

What kind of result can you expect?

After the procedure, you can expect perter buttocks and a higher, less droopy bottom overall with a good shape and tone.

The results have the potential to last several years in the vast majority of cases. While the normal aging process will cause the affected tissue to relax over time, the extent and timing of this depends largely on the elasticity of each patient’s the skin. Patients who avoid sun exposure, smoking, and weight changes may increase the length of time that results are maintained.

Recovery period and recommendations

Following treatment, you may experience some slight swelling, bruising and redness. These temporary side effects can be managed with a combination of over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses.

Possible side effects and complications

Silhouette Lift threads is inserted through small puncture wounds, which may take a few days to heal. Small scars, although unusual, may occur at the puncture site(s).

Bruising of the treated area may occur. Additionally, there may be swelling noted. Skin infection is a possibility any time a skin procedure us performed.
