Silhouette-Soft™ is a new and revolutionary natural looking facelift treatment, for men & women. Tightening the lax skin whilst stimulating the production of collagen, it can correct jowls and brow ptosis, resulting in a fresher, younger more rested expression.
A Silhouette-Soft™ facelift is designed for people experiencing early signs of ageing, such as minor facial sagging offering a safe, gentle alternative to traditional facelift surgery with less risk and inconvenience than more intensive procedures.
Silhouette-Soft™ is effective in reducing sagging around the brow, cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional surgical face lift.
The best candidates for Silhouette-Soft™facelift are those who are in good physical condition, with reasonably normal skin thickness, looking for subtle changes with brow or cheek, jowls or neck sagging, or those wishing to delay signs of ageing (generally aged between 30-50 years). Traditional full face lift is better for more advanced ageing.
Almost instantly, sagging areas are lifted, and patients notice a rejuvenated appearance
This minimally invasive facelift procedure can be performed in less than an hour, the sutures (containing polylactic acid, a absorbable ingredient used in orthopaedic procedures for years) are weaved 3-5 mm underneath the skin and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the desired areas of the face. Almost instantly, sagging areas are lifted, and patients notice a rejuvenated appearance gradually over 4-6 weeks, due to the bio stimulation effect. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can interact with Mrs. Shah-Desai and approve the results of their Silhouette-Soft™ facelift.
The Silhouette-Soft™ sutures are completely absorbed within 12-18 months. Results may last longer due to collagen production after the treatment. As with all anti aging treatments, one’s age and lifestyle can have an effect on the longevity of the aesthetic results. However, studies have shown results last between 18-36 months.

What beauty experts have to say
“For anyone that’s losing sleep about the state of their eyes, Sabrina Shah-Desai (a powerhouse ocular plastic surgeon) is the person to see to put things right. Her treatments are super refined, undetectable and all done with the lightest touch.”Brides Magazine
“The procedure itself was not uncomfortable. It felt a little warm in some areas but other than that nothing. I had some swelling for about 3 days and had an intermittent stinging sensation. It is now 2 weeks on and I am very happy with the result. I would definitely recommend this treatment.”
“Excellent results from Botox, fillers and Plexr. Would highly recommend Sabrina. I felt very safe in the hands of Sabrina. She is very friendly and explains everything in detail. Her clinic in Harley street is very calming and relaxing and her staff are also excellent. If you’re thinking about having eyelid surgery as I was then try Plexr with Sabrina. Results are brilliant. Worth every penny!”
“Mrs Shah-Desai was utterly professional from our first consultation. I had Plexr for my upper eyelids and thereafter Botox. I'm thrilled by what this gifted consultant has been able to restore to my face. I was terrified of losing my natural expression; Mrs Shah-Desai listened to my concerns and has ensured I look like a much better yet entirely natural version of myself. Sabrina is beautiful and she is not afraid to use her talents to let you be beautiful too.”
