Problems with a Silhouette Lift and how to resolve them.
I’m so sad that this happened to you and I think you’re very wise to see a therapist during this difficult period.
In my opinion, these lifts are not a good idea. There are just too many variables and the “cones” of polylactic acid just dont’ have much data or experience behind them, at this point in time. That doesn’t help you much I know.
Here are some suggestions:
- Tell your surgeon you’d like to have an appointment every two weeks with her/him to assess the progress and your satisfaction;
- If in several weeks, you are not seeing improvement, tell him/her nicely but firmly that you would like a second opinion and who would he or the company recommend;
- Call the company who makes these and report the problem…..sometimes they are helpful as a resource. Let them know (and the surgeon) that you are seeing a therapist regarding this issue;
- Ask all of the above, if there’s anything you can do to help it resolve faster. I can’t recommend any of the things you mentioned above. Sometimes they can make things worse!
I hope this helps,
