"I had a breast reduction from Dr. Woodyard over 23 years ago and I must say I am still SO VERY HAPPY. I have watched some of these plastic surgery shows and recently I saw a show dedicated to women that had had complication from a reduction (the horror). I never thought one could have problems with a reduction but wow can you....I had the best results and experience with Dr. Woodyard and never had any complications and to this day my GIRLS are just as perking and looking great as ever. I remember how professional, caring and informative she was. I trusted her completed and I'm so glad she was worth the trust, as I was young and did not ask many questions. I am grateful now and was grateful then..."- A.A. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"Dr. Woodyard, I sincerely would like to thank you such a kind and patient person and doctor that you are. You make sure that things are understood by the patient and explained thoroughly. Thank you for not being one of many "Stuffy" doctors that we have in healthcare. I would also like to inform you of the professional, very patient and friendly staff. I call the office five times in one day and the hospitality is always the same. They are the poster children of "Customer friendly". I really appreciate you and excited to have experienced you are my doctor."- L / Office Visit / Nov 14, 2017
"Recently my 81 year old friend and I drove three hours to experience our second VI Precision Plus Peel with Dermaplaning at the practice of Janet P. Woodyard, Plastic Surgery. Our procedures were performed by Master Aesthetician, Stacey Edgar. We were not disappointed. As a matter of fact, this procedure is something that gets better each time you encounter it. Why? It’s like excavating a field for a new crop. The first time you turn over the earth and pull out the rocks and weeds, it’s quite disruptive and mucky. But by the second time you expose the field, the earth seems more purified and the results are stunning. My first peel was June 2020 during the pandemic when I just needed some self-care. Within four months, I had my yearly dermatologist check. When the doctor checked my face, she commented “beautiful” “what did you do to your skin?” I told her I had a VI Precision Plus Peel and she said “well that worked very well for you”. Her unsolicited comment made me a true believer. My second procedure (March 2021) was more straightforward. I now appreciated what I had to do to take care of my face and neck immediately post peel. I had hyperpigmentation, red blotches, dry patches, and fine lines. When I look into the mirror today, that’s all gone. My face appears translucent and uniform. I am so pleased with the work of Stacey Edgar. It was so true for my friend also. Not only did Stacey explain each and every detail along the way but she followed up with phone calls to make sure we were on track with our pharmaceutical grade products and procedures. Stacey’s approach to skin care is like no other. My skin was special to her and she provided outstanding service to us. I will be signing up for a third peel and encourage the locals to line up for her."- M.N. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"Oh, my, I couldn't wait to leave my review for Master Aesthetician, Stacey Edgar; she's a staple to the practice of Janet P. Woodyard Plastic Surgery, where she brings year's of hands on medical aesthetics experience + a precise eye for beauty. Stacey performed the winning combination therapy of DERMAPLANE Pro + VI PEEL on me, and my results were out-of-this-world. No downtime; the procedure was just what my congested skin needed for the ultimate GLOW. -- Wendy (APPROVED)"- W.P. / Google / Jan 14, 2021
"I started my skin care journey with Stacey roughly 2 years ago. Honesty, I’m so proud of this decision. She creates regimens that cater to your skin needs. Consistency is key— 50% Stacey and 50% you = RESULTS."- T.B. / Google / Jan 13, 2021
Your procedure could be complete in as little as 45 minutes. Dr. Woodyard will begin your appointment with a brief assessment of your medical history and a discussion about your aesthetic goals. Next, a marking pen will be used to explain where the entry points will be located. A local anesthetic will be injected into the subcutaneous tissue around the mid-face to reduce any potential discomfort. Finally, Dr. Woodyard will insert the sutures and manipulate the skin to achieve the lift and volume desired. The number of sutures used depends on the extent of your aesthetic goals. Once the desired lift and volume has been achieved, the ends of the sutures will be trimmed off.
What to Expect
After your procedure is complete, you could experience very minimal discomfort and minor swelling and bruising. Immediate results will be achieved due to the bi-directional cones that allow the suture to remain in an elevated position. The collagen production will be gradual but allows for continued results that restore the contours of the face. Dr. Woodyard will provide you with post-treatment instructions, as well as aftercare directions so that you can ensure your results are protected.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Silhouette InstaLift cost?
The cost of your procedure will vary according to the number of sutures needed to achieve your desired result. During your consultation, Dr. Woodyard will ask about your concerns and aesthetic goals before creating a customized treatment plan that will work for you. After this has been created, we will discuss treatment costs and payment options.
Am I a candidate?
InstaLift is an ideal option for men and women who desire a more youthful appearance without the expense of surgery or the inconvenience of quarterly injectable sessions.
Can I combine InstaLift with other treatments?
For even more dramatic results, InstaLift can easily be combined with injectable wrinkle fillers or relaxers. If you are considering plumping your lips or cheeks or would like even more dramatic results, ask Dr. Woodyard about adding injectables to your treatment plan.
Will I look natural after InstaLift?
One of the most prominent benefits of InstaLift is the fast, natural outcomes it produces. Because the procedure does not involve the removal and surgical lifting of skin (such as with a facelift), the results are more subtle and natural but equally stunning.
