What happens after a Suture Suspension Facelift?

In total, your recovery should take about 2 weeks. Initially, you can expect some redness, bruising, and swelling of the treated area, although discomfort should be minimal. You will stay home for 2 days – the day of your procedure and the following day, then you can resume most normal daily activities. For the first week, you will have to avoid strenuous activities. After just 2 days, you will be able to wear makeup again.

There are also some special precautions you’ll need to take to protect your sutures and face for the first 3 weeks or so – our Eterna Cosmetic Surgery team will explain the details before you go home. Among other things, we advise that you keep facial movements to a minimum (no excessive talking, overly-animated expressions, etc., that you avoid rubbing or pressing on your face, and that you sleep on your back) for the first 6 weeks.

Get even better results

While the Suture Suspense Facelift can produce noticeable results, it is also possible to combine the procedure with a variety of other non- or minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. Popular options include Botox, dermal fillers, and Morpheus8. During your consultation with Dr. Hernandez, you can discuss your overall aesthetic goals and explore how some of these options can help you get the best possible results from your non-surgical facelift.
