Threadlift & Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Silhouette Soft

Silhouette Soft is a technological innovation offering women and men what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple and minimally invasive way: a reshaped face and restored volume by means of a 30-minute treatment at their doctor’s.

It can be used to treat different parts of the face:

  • Contours of the face
  • Jaw line
  • Cheeks and mid face areas
  • Eyebrows
  • Neck

Silhouette Soft was developed after six years of research in permanent suspension sutures with cones used in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Three years after its launch in 2013, more than 130,000 treatments have been performed in over 60 countries, where it met with great success.

It is EC approved for the European market under CE 0499 and the manufacturing site complies with the requirements of international standards ISO 13485.

“This procedure appeals to patients who do not want to have surgery, and don’t like the idea of any permanent substance being left in their faces. They also like that it is safe and subtle.”

How It Works – The Silhouette Soft Double Action

The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing the tissue and elevating the skin at the time of implanting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.

The regenerating effect is gradual: Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA), the principal component of Silhouette Soft is a well-known polymer that has been used for many years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications: suture thread, orthopedic pins, rods, screws and nails for bone fractures. It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed.

By resorbing, the poly L-lactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Always wanted a higher nose bridge or a sharper nose tip? Do your trendy sunglasses slide off your nose easily? Thought of a rhinoplasty or “nose job” but have reservations about going under anaesthesia or the knife? SBA Clinic offers a non-surgical rhinoplasty option – no general anaesthesia, no incisions, no downtime.

What is HIKO?

Hi-Ko is transliteration of Korean, which means “high nose”. It employs the use of polydioxane (PDO) threads to create volume and definition in the nose bridge and tip. PDO threads have been used for surgical wound closure for many decades and are safely left in ones body. Your skin will break down the thread material over time.

On the day of the procedure, your doctor will consult you on the shape of nose bridge and tip you desire. The skin is numbed with topical cream and a small entry needle is used to facilitate thread placement. PDO threads are inserted using a sterile cannula and technique into the desired location to achieve the design discussed above.

The doctor performing the HIKO procedure for you has been trained personally by Dr Yang Sung Yu, specialist plastic surgeon from Taiwan.

For 2 weeks after the procedure, avoid activities that will assert pressure on the nose. This is to allow the PDO threads to ‘gel’ with the skin tissue. Other than that, you may resume normal activities – there is no downtime.

Hi-Ko nose threads can last between 6 months to 1 year before their effect starts to diminish.
