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 whole experience was made comfortable by warm, friendly and welcoming nursing staff. Mr Banwell has a lovely bedside manner and was more than happy to discuss my worried however strange. At 37 years of age and after 4 children I never thought I would have the tummy of an 18 year old again, Mr Banwell is a very clever man.


Sara A.

You were very knowledgeable about every part of the procedure and that is why I chose you over any other surgeon/clinic. Nearly 5 years on and I am very pleased with the results of my operation and have had no problems and they look so natural and have built my confidence so much.


Sam M.

I consider myself blessed when I came across you Mr Banwell. You performed my operation almost a year ago which I am pleased to say was a GREAT success. I am more than pleased with the results, my whole shape is so much more defined and I love it. From the first time I met you at my initial consultation, you put me at ease immediately and never pressured me at any point to undertake the operation, you also never tired of my questions and you offered me only professional sound guidance and advice. You as a surgeon I have found to be completely transparent, knowledgeable, educated beyond most surgeons (that I came across) and totally professional, your skills and attention to detail are second to none.


Susan C.

Mr Banwell was highly recommended by a friend of a friend. She was very satisfied with results which I witnessed. I trusted what I heard and what I saw. My meetings with Mr Banwell only reassured me further. Mr Banwell offered additional discussion time pre op & several follow ups post op. His admin team were 100% helpful and efficient. His manner was approachable and accessible. I would not hesitate to recommend his professional expertise, competitive cost and charming manner. At no point did I feel judged, intimidated or overwhelmed. This was an incredibly positive experience, many thanks to Mr Banwell and the rest of the team.


Sarah P.

These were only minor operations, but I have never had anything like it before. All I can say is that it was an excellent place to start. The care was excellent from start to finish with a perfect blemish free outcome. I would certainly recommend the service to others.


Warwick S.

I felt upon meeting Mr Banwell that I was really comfortable dealing with him. He put me at ease with his friendly and professional approach. My overall experience was excellent, I can’t praise it enough. Mr Banwell was so patient with all my questions, he explained everything clearly, he is so friendly as well as professional and his admin team back up his service perfectly. You all turned a daunting experience in to a breeze. I would recommend you to everyone.
