A silhouette lift is an innovative way to rejuvenate certain areas of the face using FDA approved silhouette sutures. This minimally invasive technique is ideal for patients who want to avoid traditional facelift cosmetic surgery. At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will explain all aspects of the silhouette lift procedure, including its estimated dollar amount.
A responsible provider will first educate the patient about the benefits and limitations of silhouette lift and help them make a well-considered choice.

The Dollar Amount Comparison with Facelift Surgery
The sticker price of a full traditional facelift surgery is likely to be significantly higher than that of a Silhouette Face Lift procedure. Traditional facelift surgery typically involves general anesthesia, which has its own costs in terms of the fee to be paid to an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist. In case of silhouette lift, this cost is avoided because the procedure can be performed using only a local anesthetic.
An established facelift procedure is usually performed at a hospital or an accredited surgical center, which will involve the fees charged by the center for its services. Silhouette lift, on the other hand, can be performed in an office setting or at a private surgical suite, which is a more cost-effective proposition.
A traditional facelift surgery will have additional pre- and post-surgical expenses, including costs of medical tests, prescription medications, and post-operative appointments with the surgeon. These costs are typically avoided in case of a silhouette face lift procedure.
Following a traditional facelift, the patient will go through a downtime of about one week, which can have cost implications for some working people. Silhouette lift, on the other hand, involves virtually no downtime. The procedure is completed in about half an hour. The surgeon’s fee is also likely to be lesser in case of a silhouette face lift procedure.

Factors Affecting the Price Tag
Silhouette lift price tags can vary from one practice to another to some extent. Practice location is a key factor that will influence the actual dollar figure. Practices in major metropolitan areas and prime urban centers usually have higher real estate costs and higher overheads. Therefore, their costs may be slightly higher than that of a practice located in a small town in an interior region.
The monetary amount of a silhouette face lift may sometimes marginally vary even between two patients at the same practice. This can depend on the extent of surface area to be treated, and the number of silhouette sutures used. Some patients may combine silhouette lift with other procedures such as Botox or facial fillers, which will affect the overall price tag of the treatment.
