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 was treated with the utmost care and respect and the team were very kind and supportive. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I am very pleased with the results of my surgery and would thoroughly recommend to others.

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.

The consultation was conducted quickly, professionally but Mr Banwell also made me feel as if any question I may have wouldn’t not be too small or insignificant for him to take the time to answer. He left me feeling fully informed with both the pros and cons of any form of elective surgery but also that my worries were normal and that he would be able to assist me with my desired outcomes. His team were caring and professional making me feel that they were actually interested and were able to accommodate my dates when making the initial consultation booking. Prompt returning of calls, flexibility in booking of appointments friendliness, informative, caring and professional from the initial telephone call, the surgery, follow up appointments right through to my final appointment made me feel that my care, personal views and worries were important to them at all times. You can trust him to always be honest with you about the possible problems and outcomes. Overall experience with Mr Banwell and his team? Amazing! I just wish I’d not waited so many years to have this procedure done; I have my life back and it’s amazing to be able to walk into any shop and buy clothes that fit in my actual size and not 5 dress sizes larger just to fit my bust in. With the Upper Blepharoplasty everyone in my family says that I now look so much brighter and not tired, others I meet just tell me I look really great and ask if I’ve just had a holiday. Mr Banwell Thank You for all that you did for me.


Anne G.

It is hard for me to find the right words to thank you enough for everything you have done for me. I am sure that my speedy recovery is the result of the amazing job you have done. You are such a remarkable man and a great surgeon. Thank you for everything.


Jesma D.

Mr Banwell had by far the best experience and training for the procedure I needed; I was thrilled with the results. I was very pleased with everything. I was looked after by an amazing nurse and the results definitely made it worthwhile.


Megan L.

From the welcome I got on my first visit to post op consultations, the team were very friendly. Mr Banwell is undoubtedly the most professional and caring surgeon I could wish for. I have felt completely confident in his expertise, and am thrilled with the results. I would not hesitate – and indeed have – recommended him.
