Facelift Revision in Palm Springs

Some individuals who undergo facelift surgery may have unsatisfactory results. Facelift revision surgery with Dr. Renato Calabria can address your complaints from the primary surgery and help you achieve a more youthful and pleasing appearance.

Facelift Revision Surgery

When you meet with Dr. Calabria, he will examine your facial anatomy and discuss your problem areas. He will then devise a personalized treatment plan using one or more of his specialized facelift techniques. Most commonly, patients complain of a windswept appearance from their initial facelift surgery. This problem is usually caused by a lack of consideration for the entire facial composition, and it can be corrected with a vertical facelift approach. Dr. Calabria is careful when studying the face to produce subtle and natural-looking changes.

Dr. Calabria will typically perform facelift revision surgery with his vertical facelift technique, in which he will reposition the cheeks, fat, and facial muscles in a more vertical position. This will produce a more naturally youthful look that will be closer to what you truly looked like when you were younger. The vertical facelift can also treat problems in the cheeks, forehead, and eyes to improve facial balance and harmony. Dr. Calabria can provide you with further details about your procedure during your initial consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Facelift Revision

How long after my initial facelift can I undergo a facelift revision?

Your face will need time to fully heal from your facelift before you can undergo a facelift revision. It is recommended that you wait a least a year after your initial surgery before having your facelift revised.


Am I a candidate for a facelift revision?

You may be a candidate for facelift revision surgery if a previous facelift left you dissatisfied. Good candidates for facelift revision surgery:

  • Have realistic expectations of their results
  • Do not smoke
  • Are in generally good health
  • Do not have any underlying bleeding disorders

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Calabria to determine if facelift revision surgery is right for you.


How can I prepare for my facelift revision surgery?

To prepare for your facelift revision surgery, it will be important to avoid smoking and taking anti-inflammatory medications, as these can thin the blood and increase complication risk. You should also plan to take adequate time off work and other obligations to rest and recover properly. Since facelift revision surgery is performed under general anesthesia, you will need a responsible adult to drive you home.


Is facelift revision surgery painful? 

Facelift revision surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. You will experience some discomfort during your recovery, but Dr. Calabria will prescribe pain medication if necessary. You may also put ice or a cold compress on your face to help with pain and swelling.


What are the risks of a facelift revision? 

Facelift revision surgery is a generally safe procedure when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Calabria. However, there are risks associated with any surgery. These risks include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Prolonged swelling
  • Skin discoloration
  • Anesthesia risks


What is the recovery like after facelift revision surgery? 

The recovery after a facelift revision is similar to the recovery of your initial facelift. Facelift revision surgery is not as extensive as a facelift, so your recovery should be shorter and easier. You will have bandages on your face immediately after the surgery to protect your incision sites. It will be important to refrain from strenuous activity for at least four weeks. You should also sleep on your back with your head elevated for two to four weeks.
