A facelift is a comprehensive approach to addressing facial wrinkles and sagging skin caused by aging. This facial enhancement surgery can range from minimally invasive to more extensive surgery.
Individuals who have sagging skin on their midface or jawline, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lost facial volume, a double chin, or creasing and sagging on the neck can often benefit from a facelift. Ideal candidates will be in good general health and have realistic expectations. A consultation with Dr. Sadati can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
The facelift procedure can be done using a number of incision patterns. Depending on the degree of change that you would like to see, your facelift choices include a traditional facelift, or limited incision facelift.
The traditional facelift incision often begins in the hairline at the temples, and ends in the lower scalp. Fat is sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls, and neck, and underlying tissues are repositioned. Skin is redraped and excess skin is trimmed away.
An alternative option, the limited incision facelift, which uses shorter incisions at the temples that continue around the ear and. These facelifts are usually reserved for patients with less lax skin, as the results are not as dramatic as a traditional facelift.
Dr. Kevin Sadati developed a breakthrough facial muscle tightening technique called the Double C Plication. His Double C Plication technique applies a uniform tension on the facial muscles to create a smooth and natural look. This technique provides a durable, natural-looking lift with a relatively easy and quick recovery. Most importantly, this procedure is done under local anesthesia and oral sedation.
Recovery from a facelift is relatively quick, and the first day or discomfort is controlled with medication. Any swelling usually resides during the first week. Swelling can be minimized by keeping the head elevated when sleeping. It is recommended that patients avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen when spending time outdoors. Results are immediate; however, final results can often be seen after swelling resides.
