Are You Ready for a Second Facelift?

Most patients love the youthful, refreshed results achieved with a facelift.  The procedure can erase years of aging, environmental damage, and just seems to turn back time.  But even a great facelift can’t stop your face from aging. While your facelift will make you appear younger than your actual age for the rest of your life, will that be enough to keep your inner vision of yourself matching your reflection in the mirror? Unfortunately, gravity, sun exposure, and genetics, among other things, continue to contribute to the natural aging process, meaning fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and some sagging can reappear years after your procedure.  These days, it is more common for men and women to consider a facelift earlier in life, from mid-forties to early fifties, so a secondary facelift is a realistic option to extend those youthful results well into your later years.  Dr. Sadati says, “About 20% of my patients have come back for a revision facelift because their last surgeon did not give them the natural look they desired. Many also come back for a second or even third facelift due to the continual aging process.”

If you’ve had a facelift from Dr. Kevin Sadati at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, then you’re already familiar with his expert ability to reverse the aging process by providing you with a facelift that is youthful, refined and specifically created for you and what would most naturally enhance your individual facial anatomy.  

With a primary facelift lasting an average of 8-12 years, many patients don’t require a second facelift; however, as stunning as your primary results may be, the natural aging process will continue, gravity and laxity of skin may return, and you may decide that having a second facelift will provide you with confidence and a continued look of youthfulness once again.  

If you are at a crossroads as to whether you should have a rejuvenating second facelift, contact Dr. Sadati, named the “Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County” for 5 years in a row, for an honest evaluation.

Why Get a Second Facelift?

If you are starting to experience more looseness or sagging skin, then you may benefit from a second facelift.  Some patients may be able to address wrinkles and volume loss with dermal fillers and lasers, but others may require additional correction, something more than an injectable option can offer.  The best way to determine your options for facial rejuvenation is by scheduling a consultation with a board certified facial specialist. Dr. Kevin Sadati is a board certified facial plastic surgeon at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery near Fashion Island in Newport Beach. He will examine your face and discuss your concerns to help you determine if you are ready for, or could benefit from, a second facelift.  There is no higher risk associated with getting another facelift even though you are older. If evaluated properly by an experienced surgeon, a facelift patient over the age of 65 can have secondary facelift surgery, and achieve beautiful, natural results, without a higher risk of complications. 

If you’ve had a facelift in the last 10-12 years, you may still start to see the natural signs of aging: amongst them, laxity of skin, sagging and volume issues. Some of these concerns may be addressed with dermal fillers, but if these are not working for you or not giving you the results you want, then a second facelift may be the answer for you. Whether you are 45 or 75, there are no risks associated with getting a second facelift, and no higher risk of complications for patients on the more mature side of the age spectrum. The only risk you take is not making a decision that is best for you!

Surgeon Experience is Key

Having a facelift is a big decision requiring careful consideration, but deciding whether or not to have a second facelift is equally as difficult.  Most primary facelifts last, on average, between eight to twelve years. With a secondary facelift, choosing an experienced, board-certified surgeon who understands all of the underlying structures of the face is highly recommended.  A secondary facelift is a more complex procedure than a primary facelift since there is residual scar tissue and thinner skin with less elasticity to work with. Dr. Kevin Sadati is a highly sought-after facial plastic surgeon in the Orange County area of California that has performed more than 3500 facelifts. He has appeared on TV and discussed his facelift technique on media outlets across the nation, sharing his experiences and wisdom on the art of facial rejuvenation. As an artist and sculptor he has learned to observe and take every proportion in to consideration as he works on customizing a look that is best suited for his canvas. What differentiates him from all the rest is his use of local anesthesia and twilight sedation, over general anesthesia. The benefits to this is the recovery times are quicker and it is safer for patients.  Dr. Sadati states, “20% of his facelifts are secondary or tertiary and 10% are male, this figure is steadily growing as more people become educated on the benefits of my Natural Lift.” Overall, Dr. Sadati brings experience, skill, and artistic training and vision, to provide his patients with beautiful, natural-looking results.  Call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sadati to discuss your options for a secondary facelift.

Making the decision to get a facelift is an important and life-altering decision, and getting a second facelift is even more so. 

Because a secondary facelift is more complex than the primary facelift due to scar tissue and limited skin, your choice of surgeon is significant. It is imperative that you choose a surgeon who is highly experienced, board-certified, understands all of the underlying structures of the face, and most importantly, who understands your desired outcome and who makes you feel comfortable.
