Unfortunately, not everyone who undergoes facelift surgery remains happy and satisfied with their results. 

Maybe the results look unnatural (due to incorrect surgical techniques used by inexperienced surgeons), or maybe the additional progression of time resulted in noticeable sagging around your chin or neck.

The first step in dealing with any unfavorable facelift result is to consult with a skilled facial plastic surgeon. 

This should be an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon knowledgeable about initial and revision facial surgery techniques. Such a surgeon, like Dr. Renato Calabria, is able to understand your concerns and will know the best techniques to correct the issue, helping you reach or restore your original cosmetic goals.

Why Do Some People Consider Revision Procedures?

It is important to remember that not everyone who considers a secondary plastic surgery procedure does so because of lackluster results. In fact, many patients who return for a secondary facelift experienced wonderful results the first time around, results that they want to get back. 

Unfortunately, even the best plastic surgeon cannot stop the natural aging process, and additional laxity and lines will occur. So, if you got your initial facelift in your 40s, chances are you will see significant changes a decade or two later.

A secondary procedure allows you to touch up your results and return to a more youthful complexion. 

What Will a Revision Facelift Entail?

There are many methods when performing a facelift revision surgery. Today, we have better techniques that offer beautiful, natural-looking results that ensure you do not end up with an overly tight or windswept appearance, looks that were commonly associated with past facelift techniques.

During your facelift revision surgery, the direction of lift is key to achieving a harmonized facial profile. With a vertical lift, many patients can address hanging skin on the jaw or chin and create a natural balanced facelift result. This is due to the direction of pull used during a vertical facelift. Instead of the tissues being pulled back towards the ear, they are gently lifted and tightened upwards, resulting in a more natural look.

When performed by a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon, a facelift can be highly personalized and tailored to meet your needs. Dr. Calabria has extensive experience in facial rejuvenation procedures, having performed many different types of facelift surgery to fit your needs.

He has been at the forefront of developing procedures that best address prior facial rejuvenation surgery. Through the use of the most advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Calabria has consistently achieved optimum results. Particularly, the one-stitch facelift method has been touted for its ability to use the patient’s skin to anchor the lift and hold the tissue in place for more superior, long-lasting, and natural-looking results. The procedure is also associated with minimal scarring and little-to-no downtime.
