One stitch facelift – post operative instructions

Post op Instructions for One Stitch Facelift



The local anaesthetic will wear off in approximately one hour after the procedure. 

Paracetamol can be taken as the local anaesthetic has wears off. Please avoid Asprin, Ibruprofen or Neurofen.

Sleep with the head slightly elevated on a few pillows for the first week and avoid bending with the head down.



Usually about a week after the surgery when the wound is checked.

If non-dissolvable sutures have been used then they will normally be removed after about a week.



No restrictions but avoid strenuous activities for the first week


Wound Care

The wound can be very gently washed and then gently pat dry.

Apply Fucidin ointment to the wound until it has healed
