One stitch facelift in Italy

The One Stitch Face Lift is the latest facial rejuvenation procedure. The primary objective of this procedure is to give patients a more youthful and fresh look, without necessarily having to resort to a complete facelift.


This technique is much less intrusive than a facelift and involves only a local anesthetic. The results are subtle, but they are thick enough to give patients a fresher, more rejuvenated look.

Who is the ideal candidate for the One Stitch Face Lift?

The ideal candidate to undergo this surgery is a person aged 40 or over, has good skin quality, without sun damage, and is a non-smoker. Patients who are looking for subtle results really benefit from this procedure.

How long do the results last?

This depends on the patient and lifestyle. In general, the results have a duration ranging from 12 to 18 months. But, factors such as smoking and sun exposure can reduce this period.

The benefits of One Stitch Face Lift

Among the most evident benefits of this type of intervention we can underline that:


  • the scars are generally hidden by the hair and the width of the incision is quite small

  • the effects are immediate and the treatment is minimally invasive

  • patients can return to work the next day

  • the sutures are absorbable, therefore, there is no need to book appointments for the post-operative phase

  • you do not have to have a minimum age

  • the treatment is also suitable for patients suffering from diabetes and for most heart conditions

  • there is no risk of hair loss


Anesthesia for One Stitch Face Lift

This is a procedure that does not require general anesthesia and is performed in a day hospital. The One Stitch Face Lift requires only a local anesthetic and the duration of the surgery is about 30 minutes, so the recovery time is usually also very fast.

The post-operative course in the One Stitch Face Lift

After the procedure it is advisable to wash the hair for 10 days with a mild shampoo. Or, if you prefer, you can rinse the scar with cold water. There is no need to go back to the hospital for checks, unless you have specific needs. The sutures we use are soluble and usually dissolve within 2-3 weeks.


In the week following the surgery, antibiotics will be prescribed just in case.

Can I undergo this procedure if i have already had a facelift?

Yes, it is possible. The previous full facelift will have no impact on this surgical procedure.


In addition, it is also possible to perform treatments such as botox or fillers with hyaluronic acid.

Any complications in the One Stitch Face Lift

With any procedure there are risks, but with the One Stitch Face Lift there is only a slight risk of bleeding, bruising and infection.

However, the chance of infections is greatly reduced thanks to sutures that have antiseptics embedded in them.
