The Silhouette InstaLift device is indicated for use in mid-face suspension surgery to temporarily fixate the cheek sub dermis in an elevated position.
Important Safety Considerations
Users should be familiar with recommended techniques involving Silhouette InstaLift devices, as well as proper patient selection and suture placement.
The Silhouette InstaLift device should not be used in patients with any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic biomaterial or in situations where internal fixation is otherwise contraindicated, (e.g. infection.) The device should also not be used in patients appearing to have very thin soft tissue of the face in which the implant may be visible or palpable.
After placement patients may experience a minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction. Symptoms may include minor pain, swelling and bruising. Material sensitivity / allergic reactions should be reported to Silhouette Lift Inc. Implantation of foreign materials in tissue can result in histological reactions. Other potential side effects include sensory nerve injury, asymmetry or banding.
Individual results may vary. The Silhouette InstaLift device is available only through a licensed practitioner. Click here for complete Instructions For Use. Silhouette InstaLift content MSL-041 Rev D.
