This patient traveled from the Beverly Hills, California area because she had heard about Dr. Sadati’s surgical finesse and extensive plastic surgery experience and wanted someone who would listen to her needs, not upsell her on procedures she didn’t want. During their consultation, Dr. Sadati explained that a lower facelift and neck lift would correct her squared off jawline and reduce the signs of aging in her neck. He explained that she would be able to return home the same day as her procedure and that there wouldn’t be any nausea or vomiting because he would use local anesthesia to numb the area after giving her twilight sedation, similar to what is used during colonoscopy procedures.
Her “after” pictures reveal a more youthful neckline with no excess skin draping downward and an artfully sculpted jawline that is smooth and graceful. The heavy vertical wrinkles in her cheeks are gone, and she said that she’d been receiving compliments on how rested and refreshed she looked. “Everyone thinks I went on vacation! I’m so glad I did this in my 50s. You truly are the best plastic surgeon in Orange County.”
This is such a common question, but the answer may surprise you. When people ask Dr. Sadati if they are “too young” for a facelift, they’re often referring to their chronological age. At some point in time, someone set a number and said, “This is when you should start considering a facelift.” In reality, each person physically ages differently. To Dr. Sadati, listening to a patient’s concerns about the way their face is sagging or their cheeks are sunken is the key to determining if they are good candidates for a facelift. Diet, lifestyle, and genetic factors all play a role in how the body ages, and if you’re unhappy with the way the progression of time shows in your appearance, you may be a good candidate for a facelift whether you’re 40, 50, 60, or beyond.
Just by asking this question, Dr. Sadati would know that you’re unhappy with your appearance, so speaking with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon would be the best way to know if a facelift is the right course of treatment no matter what your age.
