How a Simple One Stitch Face Lift Can Give the Best Results
Posted: Nov 16, 2016
A one stitch facelift can be an alternative to a full facelift, especially if the actual and more invasive facelift procedure is not desired or unnecessary to achieve the look that you want. In fact, it was developed as an improvement on an older one-stitch facelift. The procedure can create a smoother and taut skin without the invasive surgical procedure. The aim of the surgery is to improve the way your face looks while avoiding the occasional risks that are typically associated with a conventional facelift and invasive surgeries. Patients who have tried the one stitch facelift have reported results that they love.
Both men and women can undergo a one stitch face lift, which is performed under local anaesthesia. A small incision is made along either side of your face near the hairline, so any scarring should be hidden or not too obvious. The incisions are closed using sutures. After the procedure, you can go home right away and return to the surgeon to have sutures removed after seven days.
The one stitch facelift is considered minor surgery and typically has minimal risks, but you should still see some bruising and minor scarring. Don’t worry—these should go away as your face heals. Be sure to tell your cosmetic surgeon if you tend to scar badly, so he can take precautions and provide special medication that may help fix your scars in case they turn into a keloid. It is important to have the procedure conducted only by a skilled surgeon who has years of experience performing face lifts and one-stitch facelifts to reduce your risk of infections and other complications like numbness, nerve damage, and bleeding.
For best results, follow the cosmetic surgeon’s advice. Antibiotics may be provided to help minimise your risk of infections. Pain and discomfort may last for a day or two, but you should consider taking a few days off of work and avoid exercising, strenuous activities, and playing any sports for two to four weeks. The result of your one stitch face lift will depend on the cosmetic surgeon’s skill, too, so be sure to choose the right one who is board certified, licensed, and experienced in conducting the procedure.
Consider looking up before-and-after photos of patients who have had one stitch facelift from a reputable cosmetic surgeon to see how the procedure has improved the way they look. This should give you an idea on what the procedure can do to your face and help you set realistic expectations on the outcome.
