The results after a temporal or one stitch facelift procedure are immediate. You will instantly see a more lifted appearance to your face.
One Stitch Facelift After Procedure
Once the one stitch or temporal facelift has been performed you will be able to leave the clinic wearing make-up. A major advantage of these types of facelifts is that no one will ever need to know that you had the procedure and the downtime is minimal. The scar is located within your hairline so is not within the area where make-up would be applied. We do advise that you are gentle whilst applying the make-up and do not press against or pull on the skin too much for the initial couple of days but you will be able to return to your usual beauty routines almost instantly after the procedure.
You will not be able to drive on the day after having a one stitch or temporal facelift procedure but the majority of patients are fine to continue driving 24 hours after the procedure if they are feeling well.
The results after a one stitch or temporal facelift are permanent as it is a surgical procedure however it will not stop the face from ageing over time. If your skin elasticity is good then you can expect to continue seeing the results for years to come. Taking care of your face with a good skincare regime will help to ensure that your results last for a long time.

You will not be required to wear any bandages after a one stitch or temporal facelift procedure. You may have one placed temporarily over the incision whilst you are still within the clinic but this often removed before you leave or you will be advised to remove it once you return home.
We recommend that patients take off the day after the one stitch or temporal facelift to allow them to relax. If you work in a particular strenuous or dusty job role then your surgeon may suggest allowing a couple of extra days but this will be discussed in your consultation.
