Silhouette InstaLift is a unique, minimally invasive facelift procedure that can serve as an effective alternative for people who want to avoid traditional facelift plastic surgery. During the initial consultation process, the treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs.
The first goal of a committed provider will be to inform the patient about all aspects of the procedure and help them make a well-considered choice. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide Silhouette InstaLift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.
Cost Comparison with Surgery
A traditional facelift plastic surgery procedure will cost significantly more than a minimally invasive treatment such as Silhouette InstaLift. While facelift is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia or IV sedation, Silhouette InstaLift will only involve small local anesthesia. General anesthesia will entail the fee of anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse. This cost will be avoided in the case of InstaLift treatment.
Facelift surgery may be performed at a hospital or an accredited ambulatory center in most cases. The fee charged by the surgical venue will be added to the overall costs of the procedure. InstaLift, on the other hand, can be performed in-office or at a private surgical suite, which will be much more cost-effective.
Pre- and post-operative costs involved a traditional facelift plastic surgery will typically include the costs of medical tests, prescription drugs, surgical accessories, and post-operative visit to the surgeon’s office. All these costs are almost entirely avoided in case of a non-surgical InstaLift procedure.
Facelift surgery will usually involve a downtime of at least one week. This can have cost implications for working people. Silhouette InstaLift, on the other hand, is simple, 30-minute procedure, involving almost no post-operative discomfort or downtime. The fee charged by a plastic surgeon for facelift will usually be considerable higher than what they may charge for a Silhouette InstaLift procedure.

The monetary amount of Silhouette InstaLift procedure can differ between two practices and even between two patients at the same practice. Where the practice is located will be an important factor in determining the actual cost. Practices located in prime cities and leading urban centers will usually have a higher cost of living than a practice located in a smaller town or an interior region. This will have an impact on the average cost of most types of products and services, including cosmetic procedures such as InstaLift.
Depending on the patient’s personal aesthetic needs and the amount of surface area to be treated, multiple sutures may be required in the InstaLift treatment. The monetary amount of treatment may slightly vary on such basis from one patient to another. Some patients may combine the procedure with other surgical or non-surgical procedures such as Botox, brow lift, or dermal fillers. A combined package may be more cost-effective in some cases.
