What Can a Facelift Achieve?

A traditional facelift pulls the facial tissues tighter, but it will not address volume loss. Facial volume loss is a common part of the natural aging process, and it can lead to displeasing sunken features. Dr. Calabria considers the effects of volume loss during all of his facelift procedures, giving his patients youthful facial contours.
Dr. Calabria’s facelift techniques address poor skin texture in several different ways. Some patients benefit most from repositioning the facial tissues and trimming away excess skin. This way, the remaining sagging skin can be tightened and smoothed. Other patients can achieve optimal results with stem cell fat grafting, which naturally rebuilds the skin, creating a younger, firmer surface.
Whether a patient desires a dramatic or conservative approach to their facial rejuvenation, they can expect a lasting improvement. Dr. Calabria has developed several different techniques that offer enduring correction of facial aging. For example, patients who opt for stem cell procedures are likely to experience results that continue to improve long after surgery because stem cells trigger regenerative impulses in the facial tissues.

What Facelift Techniques Are Available?

Stem Cell Facelift

The stem cell facelift is a revolutionary fat grafting technique that produces precise results. Patients can expect natural, long-lasting results due to the regenerative quality of stem cell-enriched fat used during the procedure. The stem cell facelift addresses signs of aging, including:
  • Jowls
  • Skin laxity of the neck
  • Deep nasolabial folds, or “smile lines”

It is essential for men to choose a surgeon who specializes in male facelift surgery because male facelift patients have different aesthetic and practical needs. The benefits of the male facelift are:
  • A youthful, conservative result
  • Imperceivable scarring
  • A short recovery period

One-Stitch Facelift Surgery

The one-stitch facelift is perfect for patients who desire minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. This procedure results in:

  • Quick recovery
  • None of the risks associated with general anesthesia

The non-surgical facelift is a new alternative to a traditional facelift, which consists of injecting fat-derived adult stem cells to rejuvenate the face. Ideal candidates for the procedure can relate to any of the following concerns:
  • Facial volume loss
  • Poor skin texture
  • Need for a shorter recovery period

Facelift Before & After Photos




Patients will stay at a post-operative facility for one to two days for adequate monitoring. Drains are removed on the second day, and patients may shower and wash their hair with the help of a trained nurse. During the first post-op appointment one week into recovery, Dr. Calabria removes some of the sutures and provides further aftercare instructions. By the second week, the rest of the sutures are removed, and light exercise is encouraged. Full recovery takes about one month. Recovery is less extensive for minimally invasive procedures such as the one-stitch facelift, non-surgical facelift, and male facelift.


Dr. Calabria is careful to place only the necessary amount of tension to his patients’ facelift incisions to ensure optimal healing and results. His meticulous techniques produce inconspicuous scars that are likely to fade over time. The non-surgical facelift does not result in any scarring.


The cost of a facelift depends on the extent of your correction required, the techniques used, anesthesia fees, geographical location, and surgical fees. Dr. Calabria will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation.


Patients may experience some discomfort after a facelift. Any excessive pain should be treated with the appropriate medications as prescribed by Dr. Calabria.

Frequently Asked Questions

Facelift results are long lasting, and patients can expect to appear permanently 10 to 15 years younger than their actual age.
You will see a noticeable improvement in your facial contours and skin quality once the swelling subsides, which may take up to one month. Patients who opt for a stem cell facelift can expect to experience continued improvement for several weeks or months after surgery.
Dr. Calabria commonly performs endoscopic brow lifts in conjunction with a facelift to ensure the face remains balanced and well proportioned. An eyelid lift may also combine well with a facelift to remove wrinkles and crow’s feet from around the eyes.
There is no age restriction on a facelift procedure. People who usually achieve the most dramatic results from cosmetic surgery tend to be in their 40s through their 60s. Facelift surgery on younger patients can be effective to lessen or postpone the development of wrinkles and sagging skin, but the results are not as dramatic, since there is not as much visible age.
The stem cells that are extracted from the patient’s excess fat promote neo-angiogenesis, which aids in the creation of new blood vessels. They also secrete growth factors that replenish and rejuvenate the skin long after surgery.
Dr. Calabria uses liposuction to harvest the fat from areas of the patient’s body that have excess fat. Common problem areas that tend to carry excess fat are:
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Back
