Silhouette InstaLift

At Tucson Cosmetic, Dr. Rubbani, offers a wide range of non-surgical facelift and body contouring solutions to reverse the signs of aging and help you look as young as you feel. If you would like to restore a more youthful appearance, but prefer to avoid extensive plastic surgery such as a traditional facelift, then a Thread Lift, Suture Lift, or Silhouette Lift® procedure may be the right option for you*.

Dr. Rubbani offers a few types of Thread Lift options for both face and buttocks: those using Silhouette InstaLift and those using NovaThreads. Each technique and product offers unique advantages, so the best way to determine if which of these great procedures is right for you is to speak with Dr. Sofia Rubbani in person. Please call (520) 638-5553 today to schedule a consultation at our Tucson or New York Office*.


A thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive facelift and/or body contouring procedure that uses special suture threads to “lift up” sagging skin on the neck and face, buttocks, arms and other areas. The procedure is less time-consuming than a traditional facelift or buttlift, and there is virtually little recovery or downtime. The end result is a more refreshed, relaxed, natural and youthful appearance.


There are many benefits to choosing the Silhouette InstaLift to achieve your facial rejuvenation goals:

  • Achieves excellent results for men and women between the ages of 40 and 75
  • Facial volume is redistributed, restoring a youthful appearance
  • Corrects mid and lower face drooping
  • Smoothes prematurely aging skin
  • Minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Short recovery and minimal downtime
  • Less swelling, bruising, and discomfort than a traditional facelift
  • Will stimulate collagen production for a lifted effect
  • Immediate results, with additional lifting effects achieved over time


The best Silhouette InstaLift candidates are in good physical condition and have normal skin thickness. If you had a prior surgical facelift and are currently experiencing sagging skin, you may be an ideal candidate.

This procedure is also an excellent option for younger men and women who would like to delay the signs of aging or achieve subtle rejuvenation results in the brow, cheek, jowls, or neck.

In general, our Silhouette InstaLift and Thread/Suture Lift patients have the following characteristics:

  • Sagging, old-looking skin around the face or jawline
  • Loss of volume or structure in the face
  • A desire to avoid invasive surgery, either due to medical reasons or personal preference
  • A desire to avoid general anesthesia
  • Realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish

Because Silhouette InstaLift procedures can be used in various places on the body, each patient requires an individualized consultation with Dr. Rubbani, during which we will discuss the best way to achieve your results.


In general, our thread lift procedures are performed in Tucson and New York offices. The patient will be given a local anesthetic and, possible, an intravenous or oral sedative. Patient comfort is a paramount concern for us, so we do everything possible to ensure that patients are well taken care of.

Dr. Rubbani will determine the best sites to insert the “thread” in order to achieve the desired final result. Next, Dr. Rubbani will begin the process of inserting the threads. The specifics of this will depend on the desired final result and the Thread Lift product employed (such as NovaThreads or Silhouette InstaLift).

This process is repeated several times in the targeted area, in order to create the desired shape and lift, again varying due to the Thread Lift product employed. In general, the entire process takes less than 30 minutes, allowing patients to resume their normal activities in short order.


Patients who undergo a the Silhouette InstaLift are usually able to resume normal activities quite quickly. There may be some bruising or swelling after the procedure, but this should subside within 3-5 days.

Some Thread Lift results will be noticeable nearly instantly. Our Tucson and New York InstaLift patients consistently remark on how the new volume and structure make them look younger and feel more confident. A Thread Lift facial rejuvenation procedure will make the patient look more youthful and rejuvenated.


We also offers thread lift procedures designed to augment and lift the shape of the buttocks, belly, arms etc. These Thread Lift procedures follow the same basic steps as Thread Lift for the face.
