One-Stitch Facelift in Beverly Hills

Aging around the cheeks and eyes can result in the relaxation of the facial skin, creating a drooping appearance. Dr. Calabria developed the one-stitch facelift to mimic the old Hollywood secret of positioning the cheeks using tape in the hair. However, by using one simple incision, Dr. Calabria can lift the cheeks more permanently than any other technique available.

Dr. Calabria’s One-Stitch Facelift Technique

Dr. Calabria begins your procedure by placing a tiny incision in each side of the temporal hairline; these incisions are short and traditionally covered by hair. Dr. Calabria then undermines the skin and thins it out. The skin is lifted toward the temples and anchored in place. As the skin along the cheek is lifted, you will see an improvement in the appearance of the nasolabial folds.


After an extensive consultation, Dr. Calabria will recommend which technique will help you achieve the best results possible. He often utilizes multiple techniques to customize your procedure. Tailoring each procedure to the individual allows Dr. Calabria to produce natural-looking results that highlight your facial contours while maintaining the masculine qualities of your facial structure.

The male one-stitch facelift is an outpatient procedure performed using a local anesthetic. This helps prevent pain during your procedure and minimizes your recovery period.

You will experience minimal bruising and swelling. For most patients, recovery only lasts one weekend. Patients can resume their regular activities after several days, and swelling should subside within several weeks.

You may experience some minimal discomfort, which can be controlled using oral pain medication.

Injectables can only smooth out the face; they cannot firm your loose skin. The one-stitch facelift provides more dramatic, longer-lasting results than injectables, with only a few more days of recovery.
