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.

I went to see Mr Banwell to get reassurance about the moles and blemishes which have been steadily growing since I was a young adult. 30 years ago we were not aware of the dangers of the sun and burning on holiday way an annual ritual. Thankfully we are all now aware that the sun damage can cause skin cancer and the changes in my moles mean I have a precautionary approach, particularly as older family members have had tumours removed. Paul knows exactly what he was looking for and studied each and every mole methodically. The two he highlighted for treatment were two of the least innocuous (in my opinion) which surprised me. Clearly to the trained eye they needed removal. I have since had an excision of one and due to have photo dynamic therapy treatment for the small red mark on my nose later this year. Without seeing Paul, this minor irritation would have been left and could possibly have created problems later in life. I advocate regular checks for anyone with moles and skin blemishes. The technology now is so impressive and it makes absolutely sense to take full advantage of Paul’s expertise.

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.

I was made to feel at ease with everything. Nothing was too much, lots of care and thought. Pain was very minimal. Lots of follow up care which was first class. I got exactly what I wanted, I have a lovely new look which I could not achieve on my own. If something is bothering you and you can not get to your goal there is help. I had an excellent experience.


Margaret S.

I just want to thank you for all your care, expertise and advice.

The care was excellent both pre and post operatively. During my stay at the hospital I knew exactly what to expect and when, which was most reassuring. The outcome is exactly as I’d have hoped. My eyes look less heavy and it’s as if they have more space to open! I’d never heard of the procedure before seeing Mr Banwell but I knew that something needed doing, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results.


Janet T.

I decided to have treatment with Mr Banwell as I had been seeing him on several occasions regarding stomach irregularities due to a disastrous lipo operation abroad a few years ago. We discussed various options together and I always felt comfortable talking with Mr Banwell and trust him completely to give me the correct advice when considering surgery. I felt my expectations were realistic as Mr Banwell had advised me of the possible downside of the procedure. However, all my expectations were exceeded tenfold! My stomach is looking so much better aesthetically and my breasts look amazing! Mr Banwell and his team excelled at making me feel comfortable and relaxed. I felt I was able to discuss matters with friendly people who cared. I feel Mr Banwell takes time to cover all aspects of the procedure in a friendly, caring and informative manner. I feel happy to say one couldn’t be in safer hands. My overall experience with Mr Banwell and his team has been very positive in all aspects culminating in amazing results. I couldn’t be happier.
