About Instant Lift
When you are unsure if you are ready for a surgical procedure like a full facelift to correct your maturing skin, our double board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, would like to offer you a consultation for an Instant Lift. Smooth wrinkles and lift the skin with a natural-looking result with this new technique of inserting absorbable sutures within the deep layers of your skin. After this minimally invasive procedure at Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX your skin will look younger without an extensive recovery period. It is also a wonderful supplementation for patients using cosmetic injectables. If you love the look your BOTOX® gives your facial appearance, we invite you to learn more about an Instant Lift. The procedure itself takes less than 45 min – 1 hour as an out-patient procedure.
"The entire experience with everyone in the office was great. They take as much time as you need to answer any and all questions. "- K. / Demandforce / Sep 28, 2016
"Totally amazing experience - I was anxious to get the turkey waddle under my chin fixed as well as the bags under my eyes. However I was not willing to have a surgical procedure. Dr Ho performed facetite on my neck and got rid of my bags on my lower eyelids. It was done in the office and was relatively pain free. Dr Ho is extremely professional and I was so happy with the results. Sandra his coordinator walked me..."- E. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2018

"Smart Lipo of the Neck/chin - When Kybella didn't work, I turned to Dr. Ho for Smart Lipo of the chin/neck area. If I had the choice, I would have had the surgery again in a heartbeat. Recovery was comfortable and I was up and moving in no time! I resumed work a couple of days later! I'm so thrilled with my results thus far!!!!!"- J. / RealSelf / May 02, 2017
Men and women of good health may be great candidates for an Instant Lift procedure using the PDO Threading technique. If you have wrinkles, fine lines, and mild to moderate loose skin on your face and want natural-looking results without surgery, you have indicators that Instant Lift may be the right rejuvenation treatment for you.
What to Expect
During your scheduled appointment, we will invite you to our minor procedures room to relax comfortably in the treatment chair. Then, we will use a washable marker to mark the incision entrance and exit points on your facial skin. To keep you comfortable and pain-free during the procedure, we will inject a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, into the skin before the Instant Lift sutures are threaded into your incision points. It is important to follow all your plastic surgeon's aftercare instructions. The procedure lasts 45 min – 1 hour. In the following weeks, the threaded cones and sutures will dissolve to jump start healthy collagen production in the process.
To get dramatic results, we can combine your Silhouette InstaLift with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as cosmetic injectable wrinkle relaxers and/or fillers, laser skin resurfacing, nonsurgical skin tightening, and more. Regardless, you will see a difference in your facial skin right away. You may also see swelling and bruising. Be diligent in your aftercare for the incision points, and call our office if you experience signs of infection, allergic reaction, or nerve injury after your appointment.
