Meet Dr. Kevin Sadati Orange County Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Kevin Sadati, an exceptional, highly specialized, and experienced facial plastic surgeon, has over 20 years of experience performing thousands of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. He is a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngology/head and neck surgeon. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.


Dr. Sadati’s Deep Plane Facelift Technique

Dr. Kevin Sadati is renowned not only for his mastery of traditional deep plane facelift techniques but also for pioneering innovative procedures that have been adopted by surgeons worldwide. One of his most notable contributions is the revolutionary Preservation Lift™, an advanced deep plane facelift technique that reduces the recovery and complication associated with traditional deep plane facelift.

Dr. Sadati’s expertise is widely recognized in the medical community. He has published his work in prestigious journals such as the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Journal and the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. Additionally, he has presented his techniques at national academic conferences, including the annual meetings of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

The Preservation Lift™ know as Preservation Facelift, is particularly suited for men and women in their late 40s to 70s. As Dr. Sadati explains, “As we age, the skin and deep layers in the face and neck tend to sag and lose their elasticity. This can be due to various factors, including genetics, stress, diet, and gravity.” His Preservation Lift™ technique addresses these issues by releasing the face and neck retaining ligaments in the deep plane. This allows him to lift the midface, jowls, and neck in a vertical direction, restoring a youthful appearance.

Patients prefer the Preservation Lift™ for its natural-looking results, avoiding the “pulled” or “tight” look often associated with traditional facelifts. In addition, shorter recovery and reduced complication is appealing to many who are traveling to have their facial rejuvenation procedure.  Moreover, the procedure is performed under twilight sedation and local anesthesia, eliminating the need for general anesthesia. This approach is safer and significantly reduces recovery time, making it a highly desirable option for those seeking facial rejuvenation.

Dr. Sadati’s Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” can adjust the size, shape, and position of the nose to make it more harmonious with the other elements of the face. Dr. Sadati is recognized as an expert in the Rhinoplasty field and has performed hundreds of nose jobs as well as conducted training on this type of procedure for other professionals.

At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, a large portion of nose-related procedures revolves around correcting and refining the noses of patients who have endured unsatisfactory results with another surgeon. There is no revision Rhinoplasty, or “second nose job,” problem that Dr. Sadati considers too challenging to repair.

In addition to providing patients with aesthetic improvements to the nose, some rhinoplasty procedures can also improve the function of the nose. Functional rhinoplasty can correct a range of problems, including:

  • Repairing a Deviated Septum
  • Reducing Enlarged Turbinates
  • Removing Nasal Polyps
  • Repairing Nasal Valve Collapse

Dr. Kevin Sadati

One of the most common nose corrections is repairing a deviated septum. In some patients, a deviated septum can cause issues like snoring, noisy, mouth breathing, difficulty breathing, and even a bump or hump on the nasal bridge. Septoplasty is another medical procedure, which corrects a deviated septum and helps return functionality to the nasal passageways.

Along with being a board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and an otolaryngology/head and neck surgeon, Dr. Sadati is an ENT Specialist. An ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT), is a physician who is trained in the medical and surgical treatment of the ears, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck. With his extensive training and skill, Dr. Sadati can provide patients with procedures that can improve both the appearance and function of the nose.

“Dr. Sadati is the epitome of professionalism and expertise. From the first consultation he makes you feel welcome with care and concern. His work is superb, and, I believe, the best I’ve seen in others and experienced in myself."
