Silhouette Instalift


The Silhouette InstaLift™ is a state of the art suture delicately placed in the skin to immediately lift the mid-face, restoring volume and support to the aging face. It is a perfect option for men and women who don’t want to undergo a traditional facelift or deal with ongoing dermal filler injections.


The unique bi-directional cones on the sutures provide points of fixation, making it possible for Dr. Balog to precisely lift areas of the cheeks and jawline, eliminating the deep folds of the nasolabial area. The sutures are made from material that is well known and has been used for more than 30 years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.


Silhouette InstaLift acts in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulates fibroblast activation and the gradual production of Type I and Type III collagen. The collagen produced as a secondary effect gives support to the skin which outlast the sutures themselves.

Custom Lift Consult

30 minutes
Meet with Dr. Balog at Portland Pain and Spine to determine the best way to achieve your goals. Cost is determined by the number of sutures, complexity of placement. This medical consult is required prior to receiving treatment.


We want to assure our patients that Portland Pain and Spine remains open and actively managing your pain. Medication management is given the highest priority. Our relocation across the hall in the Washington building is complete but requires office renovation before we can accommodate patient visits. Staffing shortages affected our ability to communicate last month, however, this was temporary. Dr. Balog has reached out to all patients but asks that if anyone has additional questions or concerns to contact him at [email protected].
We have updated our phone messaging system to assist with calls. There are now options to speak with a live receptionist, leave messages or speak with our new billing company. Medical record requests can be processed on our website at and are handled by Morgan Records Management. Thank you for your patience during this transition. We look forward to providing you high-quality care as we enter into 2024! 

Wishing you all a joyful holiday season.
