My Mum Tried the Silhouette Soft Thread Lift to Lift Her Sagging Skin


It has been one of my Mom’s dream to try Silhouette Soft Face Thread Lift to achieve a more lifted and youthful look. Being exposed to social media, she came across  Face Thread Lift and got to know how magical they are.

After careful consideration, she has decided to give Silhouette Soft Face Thread Lift a shot at Clifford Clinic Singapore after seeing many positive reviews. My dad and I supported the idea as we saw nothing wrong with my Mom wanting to look better and to feel more confident about herself.

As we age our skin loses its firmness and volume which makes the skin sag eventually. Deepened nasolabial folds, jowls formation and an overall “droopy” facial appearance will form. I do believe that most of us would love to feel and look younger or healthier. Well, at least that’s for me!

Thanks to new technologies and inventions, regaining confidence and youth is made possible with Silhouette Thread Lift!

That's us with Dr. Gerard Ee. I accompanied my mom here to give her my full moral support.

Here’s Dr Gerard from Clifford Clinic Singapore, carefully examining, explaining and recommending in details what needs to be done to make my mom regain her youthful look!

A little more on Silhouette Soft Face Thread Lift:

Silhouette Soft Face Thread Lift is the latest minimally invasive face lifting aesthetic procedure widely used (especially in Korea) to instantly lift sagging skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles without surgical risks.

Using threads made of poly L-latic acid (PLLA), these threads are inserted into the face to tug your skin upwards and at the same time, helps to regenerate and restore lost collagen progressively over the next 3 to 6 months to improve fine lines, facial contours, skin texture and elasticity; giving a natural reverse-aging effect!

The threads inserted have excellent bio-compatibility and they would be fully dissolved by the body thus there is no need to remove them. The lifting effect is immediate and discreet due to the compression and elevation of the skin once the suture is applied.

The effect varies with individuals. Typically, it may last up to 1 to 2 years.

There is no real downtime, and it has only minimal pain, and the results are instant with immediate natural lifting. You can expect slight soreness and swelling, but you should be able to resume to normal activities almost immediately.

Not to worry, there’s no knife or cutting involved in the procedure.

A full-face Face Thread Lift session typically takes about an hour to complete and is done under local anesthesia in a comfortable environment. Look at my mom feeling all comfortable!

And the other side.

Fine surgical sutures were inserted into the face’s soft tissues in order to gently lift and support the sagging areas. The process helps to reduce jowl formation along the jawline, raise the outer brow area, and reduce sagging in the nasolabial folds and cheeks. A re-tightening effect will be achieved which redefines facial contours with a natural rejuvenated look.

Threads can be used to treat different parts of the face including the jaw area, cheeks, cheekbones, eyebrows, and even our neck. Depending on the lift you desire, 1-4 Silhouette Soft threads may be placed per area and it is suitable for all skin types.

Cutting off the excess threads once it’s done.

Okay, I was there in the room with them so I can say that the atmosphere then was pretty relaxed! It wasn't as scary as it looks in the photos though!

Dr. Gerard was actually talking to me and my mom when he’s not inserting the threads.

And it’s all done! Cleaning up the marks.

Dr. Gerard suggested putting a little bit of fillers at the nasolabial folds because my mum wished to get rid of her smile lines. A little bit of fillers actually helps to enhance the results of the thread lift.

Dr. Gerard also suggested putting a little bit of fillers at my mom's undereye area to minimize her heavy eye bags.

A big shout out to Dr. Gerard for being so professional and awesome at what he is doing. He is highly trained and has many years of experience in carrying out the face thread lift procedure with proper insertion techniques. No wonder my mom told me that she felt minimal discomfort throughout the entire procedure. I was utterly impressed with it.

FRESH AND ALL DONE! Here are the results immediately after the procedures.

No alteration was done to the photo. My mom looks so much refreshed and she looks better even without any makeup now. What sorcery is this?

Love that the results are so visible and instant!

Many thanks to Clifford Clinic Singapore and Dr. Gerard for being the best!!
Mom was given medication and wa scheduled to visit Dr. Gerard after a week for review.

And here’s the result after a week (without makeup).

Everything is looking great!

Don't you agree that she looks so much younger?

I’m not sure about you, but after seeing the results, I will totally consider doing the exact same Silhouette Soft Face Thread Lift procedure next time when I need it!
