"I enjoyed my consultation with Dr Farr and am so excited to proceed. I wish I had found him sooner. He answered all my questions on thread lifts and was also able to do my BOTOX on the same day. I had my threads done a week after my consultation and my results are amazing. I am very happy with his technique. His staff is also so friendly I felt right at home. Highly recommend VIP COSMETIC SURGERY."- MN / Office Visit / May 04, 2021
how does instalift work?
InstaLift is a simple procedure that is performed on-site at VIP Cosmetic Surgery in Bluffton and Hilton Head, SC. It does not require general anesthesia or any downtime and takes about 30 – 45 minutes to complete. To start, Dr. Farr will mark and numb the port sites. This includes any areas where a needle will be placed in or out. The InstaLift threads (sutures) will then be inserted and strung along the designated target zones. Lastly, Dr. Farr will tighten the threads to achieve a gorgeous lift.
These sutures use micro-suspenxsion technology that is highly biocompatible, which means they will dissolve over time. This process will leave behind a lattice for your own collagen to build and grow, creating a tighter and younger-looking profile. Over the next 24 – 48 hours, you can expect some swelling and a slight amount of bruising. Typically, after about 3 – 5 days, swelling is gone. Most patients love their outcomes at day seven but experience the best results after about two weeks.
How much does an InstaLift cost?
The overall price of an InstaLift will differ from one patient to another. Each person has their own unique skin with their own needs, which can affect the cost of the procedure. After your initial consultation, we'll be able to create a custom treatment plan and offer an in-depth cost estimate.
How long do the results of an InstaLift last?
Generally, our patients notice results from this procedure for about 18 months after their session. However, this can vary depending on a person's skin, health, and skincare routine. After your treatment, we can walk you through some of the ways to ensure your results last for as long as possible.
Does an InstaLift hurt?
No. Most of our patients report feeling nothing more than mild discomfort throughout their session. This is due in large part to the anesthetic applied to each entry and exit point of the sutures.
