In the past, women were the most prominent demographic for plastic surgery. Over the last few years, however, the number of men seeking cosmetic enhancement has risen significantly. Facial rejuvenation is especially popular and provides men with a revitalized appearance that helps them exude confidence at work and in their private lives. Dr. Renato Calabria performs male facelift surgery with the utmost care to maintain the rugged, masculine qualities of the male patient who desires more youthful facial contours without appearing overdone.
- Corrects facial volume loss
- Minimal scarring
- Customizable treatment
- Conservative results
- Preserves masculine facial features
The best candidates for a male facelift are individuals who have the following concerns:
- Loose neck skin
- Deep nasolabial folds, or “smile lines”
Stem Cell Facelift
The stem cell facelift is a cutting-edge fat grafting process that produces lasting results. The stem cells that are harvested from other parts of the body and injected into the facial tissues trigger healing and regenerative responses. When paired with traditional facelift techniques, this approach produces natural and continuous improvement.
The one-stitch facelift is a minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. It can be performed using local anesthesia, eliminating the risks associated with general anesthesia. A single incision is created at each sideburn, allowing Dr. Calabria to lift and anchor the skin without using threads.
The non-surgical facelift is a non-invasive alternative for patients who want a younger look without having to undergo major surgery. Like the stem cell facelift, regenerative stem cells are harvested and purified to be injected into facial tissues. However, this procedure does not involve skin excision. This approach is ideal for patients with minor concerns such as mild volume loss and poor skin texture.
Patients can expect to experience some facial swelling and bruising. Resting with the head elevated for at least two weeks after surgery is recommended to minimize swelling and discomfort. Most patients go back to work within two to three weeks of their facelift procedure, but patients who opt for the one-stitch or non-surgical variations will have an even shorter recovery period. Strenuous activities should be avoided for at least three to four weeks.
The effects of more extensive facelift techniques tend to last longer than the results of minimally invasive techniques, but many patients report enduring improvement regardless of the type of facelift they chose. No facelift procedure can halt the aging process, so it is essential to adopt a healthy lifestyle and engage in dedicated sun protection to prolong results.
