Thread Lifts

The TBC Silhouette Soft Lift

The TBC silhouette soft thread lift is a non-surgical approach to lifting the face. It is a relatively straightforward procedure performed under a local anaesthetic and can be a real alternative for those who do not wish to go down the surgical facelifting route.

Rebalancing Volume and softening lines

It is a technological innovation, offering a simple  solution, in suitable patients, to a subtle re-definition of facial contours, restoration of volume and reduction of wrinkles, all without the use of incisions or general anaesthetic. The discreet, 60-minute procedure means you can be in and out within a lunch hour, and able to go back to your daily activities within a few days. Silhouette Soft can be used as a stand-alone treatment but we prefer to use this technique in combination with High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU), dermal fillers, muscle relaxing injections and Plasma Shower regimes.

The Silhouette Soft® Thread Lift suture is made of L-Polylactic Acid while the bidirectional cones are made of Lactide Glycolide ; these are totally biocompatible and biodegradable. Each suture is inserted into the subcutaneous tissue,  followed by elevation of the skin and subcutaneous tissues over the cones;  this allows compression and traction and creates an immediate lift and re-definition of the focus area.

Furthermore, the Polylactic Acid helps stimulate the fibroblasts and collagen production in the local subcutaneous tissues which leads to gradual collagen regeneration  and a delayed secondary lifting effect.

BRAS & GARMENTS

Patients may wish to consider High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU), botox, fillers, Profhilo, Plasma shower or surgical facelift. Mr Banwell will discuss all potential options with you. Facial rejuvenation nowadays involves combination treatment and bespoke treatment plans.

Our trademark Banwell Clinic non-surgical facelift involves needleless biodynamic  facial with Profhilo followed by HIFU followed by Silhouette Soft threadlifts for patients in Sussex, Kent, Sureey and London. In addition, 3-D dermal fillers or fat injections can also be used to enhance the contour of both lips and other  areas of the face requiring volumisation or refined contouring. These procedures all have their own indications and risk profiles that you should speak with Mr Banwell about.

There are both general and specific risks to the treatment and Mr Banwell will talk to you in detail regarding these. General risks include bruising and swelling, bleeding, wound infection, abnormal scarring and keloid scarring. Specific risks include haematoma (collection of blood under the skin), excessive scar formation, wrinkling, dimpling, ruckling, palpability of cones, visibility of cones, asymmetry, numbness, loss of movement to the facial muscles of expression and disappointment with the extent of improvement in both the contour of the face and neck – often this is dependent upon the number of threads used.

Whilst threadlifts may contribute to you looking younger, your face will continue to age at a rate that it otherwise would have; further treatments on a regular basis are therefore required including th epossiblity of surgical intervention.

Clinic fees are usually charged according to how many threads are used although for pan facial threadlifting with Silhouette Soft special packages are available.

My expectations were fully met when I went to see Mr Banwell for the first time and he went through very carefully what he would be doing and giving me a realistic prognosis which was what I wanted. He came over as a very thorough and caring person. The skin graft was a complete success and although quite a large area, it is exceptionally neat and gives me no concern. On two further occasions I noticed lumps in other areas, and on getting in touch, appointments were made and Paul removed them immediately, once again very neatly. The after care is also extremely important to me and I have never been disappointed. Luckily I don’t know anybody going through the same thing as me but I would have no reservations in telling them to go and see Paul, as his thoughtfulness and care and attention throughout is excellent, he treats you as an individual. I would also say that I consider him now to be a friend as well as a surgeon. Whenever I am on the phone making future appointments his staff are always friendly, helpful, cheerful and willing to chat, but if you need any reassurance at any time they’re there for you.

…total expertise and attention to detail in surgery.

We just wanted to say a big thanks you again to you and your team for making our experience so much better than we could have ever imagined. You and your team were so professional and friendly which really put us at ease from our very first appointment. This definitely gave us the confidence to finally have the surgery we’ve wanted for such a long time. We’re both extremely happy with the results. Thanks again.

…thank you so much for your fantastic caring and positive attitude.

I was delighted with my care, it was faultless in all aspects.

I asked around and was told that Mr Banwell was the best in his field. I don’t know what my expectations were but the result was great, all my friends think my eyes look brighter and more open. I had no bruising which I was told I might have. Mr Banwell and his team excelled in making my life very easy for me, with arrangements and liaising with the hospital which didn’t always have my details correct, they were very helpful and answered all my questions, nothing was too much trouble. Mr Banwell put me at ease and I was not worried about the operation at all.
