After finally undergoing a facelift, it can be disheartening when you realize your procedure was not done in a way that best highlights your facial features. It may look too tight or unnatural, or perhaps you have more extensive scarring than you anticipated, or your results did not last as long as you expected. If your face needs rejuvenation, and you are looking for options to refresh your appearance, then a revision facelift may be the answer for you. With his revolutionary revision facelift technique, Dr. Calabria can address poorly performed or older procedures to provide you with more natural, youthful results.
Are You a Candidate?
Dr. Calabria’s revision facelift can be appropriate for anyone who has had a facelift before and is unhappy with the results. Whether you’re disappointed in how the procedure was performed or if you’re simply looking for a refresh years after your first facelift, this may be an effective procedure for you. Before booking a surgery, Dr. Calabria will consult with you to discuss your treatment goals, examine the results of your last procedure, and determine which procedures may be most appropriate for you.
An incorrectly performed facelift can often give the appearance of muscles that have been pulled too tight, which results in a gaunt look making you look more tired (and older!) than you truly are. Dr. Calabria has perfected a method of fat grafting with stem cells that, when injected into depressions in your face, can restore lost volume. Restoring volume to your cheeks, brows, lips, and other areas of your face can restore a youthful appearance and help you regain a more refreshed look.
Improved Appearance of Scarring
If your initial facelift resulted in obvious scarring, then a revision with Dr. Calabria can help to minimize the appearance of those scars. He will perform his procedure by using the old scar to access your underlying tissue and muscle. He will then close the incision using a tension-free technique that will help relieve pressure from the incision as it heals, thus reducing the appearance of even the existing scar. By minimizing obvious scarring, the results of your procedure will look less obvious.
More Natural Appearance
Often, a botched facelift results in skin and muscle that is pulled too tight, which results in an unnatural look. Dr. Calabria can address both issues by first releasing sutures that may be holding the muscle in place. In relaxing the musculature, the face will be able to smooth itself out, and any depressions or dimpling will disappear. He will then make sure the skin is pulled in the correct direction (a vertical pull provides a much smoother, more natural look than a horizontal one). Combined with a more relaxed muscle structure, your new face will look younger and much more natural than before.
