After carefully researching cosmetic surgeons in the Anaheim, California area, this patient consulted with Dr. Sadati on a number of concerns. She was in her 60s but felt that she looked much older. Her jaw was sagging. She also had excess skin in the neck area and disliked how her eyes had become hooded and heavy looking. Dr. Sadati carefully reviewed each procedure with her and explained that she would only need local anesthesia, similar to that used during a colonoscopy, plus twilight sedation.
During her eyelid surgery, he removed excess skin and fat from both her upper and lower eyelids and completed her eye area by using a CO2 laser to resurface the skin and encourage new collagen to form. He eliminated the bags she disliked so much and performed a neck and facelift, taking care to tighten the underlying muscles and to remove excess tissue that made her jawline invisible.
Eight weeks later, she looked at least 10 years younger. “Those reviewers were right—all 600 of them! I’m so thankful I found you. You’re the best cosmetic surgeon in Orange County, and I’ve already recommended you to two of my friends.”
When inquiring about technique and different surgical options, such as SMAS rhytidectomy and deep plane rhytidectomy, Dr. Sadati recommends that patients review the “before” and “after” pictures in a surgeon’s portfolio to see how different results were achieved. Successful results can be seen in photographs where the patient has a visibly youthful-looking face without any obvious signs of over- or under-tightening.
An experienced surgeon who has proof of results similar to what an individual desires will ultimately be able to recommend the most appropriate approach. Dr. Sadati has performed more than 3,500 face and neck lifts and has pioneered the “Double C” Plication technique that offers long-term results and is occasionally combined with other procedures to address volume loss or drooping tissue.
