The aging process can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower face, which can be discouraging for many people. Traditional facelift procedures are often used to correct these aging concerns, but can often lead to a fake, windswept appearance caused by facial tissue being pulled too tight from the sides (laterally). These changes in a patient’s natural appearance can be displeasing when the patient is seeking more natural, subtle results.

Dr. Calabria takes a more modern approach to facial rejuvenation by utilizing his experience, expertise, and advanced technology to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. His methods of facial revitalization include the vertical facelift, which lifts deeper facial tissues vertically and returns them to their natural positions.

After reviewing photos of your youth, Dr. Calabria can have a better idea of your facial contouring and the ideal results.

What Sets the Vertical Facelift Apart From Traditional Techniques?

The vertical facelift technique allows for improved jawline definition, reduced signs of aging in the lower face and neck, a shorter recovery time, minimal scarring, and natural-looking results. Using advanced technology when addressing concerns in the face produces satisfying enhancement that is also long-lasting.

By pulling the skin up vertically, in the opposite direction that gravity is pulling it, your neck can also be addressed, and your results will look more natural.

Vertical Facelift Options

Several other facial rejuvenation techniques utilize the vertical facelift method of correcting aging skin. The one stitch facelift is a less invasive technique for patients who desire mild aging correction without the downtime necessary after a vertical facelift.

Stem cell facelifts include fat grafting, which uses liposuction to remove fatty tissue from areas on the body with excess fat, such as the thighs, abdominal area, or buttocks, and transferring the purified, stem cell-enriched fat cells to the face. This process improves skin texture, restores volume, and assists in tightening the skin. When performed in conjunction with the vertical facelift, optimal rejuvenation can be achieved.
