What a Facelift Can Provide

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 excess skin so the remaining skin can be tightened and smoothed. Other patients can achieve optimal results with stem cell fat grafting, which rebuilds the skin naturally, 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.

Facelift Techniques

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 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

The one-stitch facelift is perfect for patients who desire minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. This procedure results in:
  • Inconspicuous scarring
  • 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 shorter recovery period

Concerns

Recovery

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.

Scars

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.

Cost

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.

Pain

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

Stem cells secrete growth factors and can create new blood vessels. Regenerative cells can facilitate a natural biological healing response that promotes tissue survival and retention. Essentially, these cells induce the skin and facial tissues to produce more cells and multiply, which continues to enhance the appearance of the face long after surgery.
Dr. Calabria’s stem cell facelift takes the vertical facelift to the next level. While utilizing the same techniques for tightening the facial tissues, the stem cell facelift improves upon the vertical facelift by using stem cell-enriched fat to enhance facial volume. This fat has a higher resorption rate and produces more naturally youthful facial contours.
All areas of the face can benefit from a stem cell facelift. The lower face and neck will see the most improvement. Additionally, overall facial skin quality and volume will improve. You may wish to combine your stem cell facelift with a brow lift or eyelid lift for even greater results.
Once your swelling and bruising have decreased, you will notice a significant improvement in the shape and structure of your face. As the stem cells and regenerative cells work in your facial tissues, you will continue to see improvements over the following weeks and months leading to an increasingly more youthful facial appearance.
