I wouldn't think there is a time frame. There are lots of large arteries which feed up to the face/brain. As you can see from this pic there are 2 carotid arteries on each side of the neck, which meet up with other artery feeds in the circle of willis.
May I ask if you are having stenting or endarterectomy?

By coincidence I just read relevant information regarding the medical information from the Mayo Clinic. I hope this helps and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.  Take care,

Ken
