One Stitch Facelift & Temporal Facelift

The Problem

As we begin to age, one of the first places to show the visible signs is our face. Our skin can sag and lines and wrinkles may become more pronounced. A facelift is usually the first procedure that comes to mind but many do not want to undergo surgery with long downtimes and many feel that they are at a stage where a full facelift is just not needed. A one stitch facelift is exactly that, a facelift with one incision point and one stitch within minimal downtime too.

The One Stitch Facelift

The one-stitch facelift procedure is much less invasive than a full facelift and can be safely carried out under local anaesthetic. The results are a little more subtle in comparison and very effective in producing a firmer, tighter and more rejuvenated appearance to the face.

Benefits of the One Stitch Facelift(mini facelift)

  • Targets the mid-face and can improve the jaw line
  • Minimal downtime
  • Low risk of swelling & bruising
  • Minimal hidden scarring within the hairline
  • Performed under local anaesthetic
  • Back to work in no time at all

The Temporal Facelift

The Temporal Facelift is another minimally invasive facelift procedure that concentrates on the eyebrows to the midface. It is a quick procedure performed under local anaesthetic with a much smaller scar than a traditional facelift but the results are still very effective in producing a natural looking lift to the face.

Benefits of the Temporal Facelift

  • Short 5-6cm scar hidden within the temporal hair line
  • Targets the upper face
  • Performed under local anaesthetic
  • Minimal downtime
  • Low risk of swelling & bruising
  • Back to work in no time at all

One-Stitch Mini Face Lift Treatment

The one stitch facelift is performed under local anaesthetic so your procedure will start with a small injection to the area being treated which will then eventually become numb.

Once numb your surgeon will then make a small incision within the hairline, so no one will be able to see it. The skin is then removed and a stich is passed through the deep tissue within the cheek which is then tightened and secured before the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.

The Temporal Facelift is also performed under local anaesthetic so will begin in a similar way with a small injection of local anaesthesia to numb the area being treated. The surgeon will then make an incision above the hairline at the temples. The skin is then separated from the fat and muscle below and the underlying muscle and SMAS membranes are tightened. The skin is then pulled back and any excess is removed and the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.  A blepharoplasty is often performed at the same time as a temporal facelift.

Recovery

The downtime after a one-stitch facelift and temporal facelift is minimal with many patients feeling able to return to work the next day.

Results

The results of a one-stitch facelift and temporal facelift are long lasting as the procedure involves removing skin. You will still age as normal so the results of your facelift may change slightly over time but the effects should remain visible for a long time after surgery.
