Procedure: Lower Facelift and Neck Lift. Anesthesia: Local Anesthesia with Twilight Sedation Gender: Male Age: 50+ Years Old Post Op Timeline: 8 weeks Post Op
When this patient from the Buena Park, California area met with Dr. Sadati, his first words were, “I’m only in my 50s, but I’m tired of looking like I’m over 70.” He was very unhappy with his profile because there was barely any definition between his face and his neck. Dr. Sadati explained that combining a neck lift with a lower facelift would restore the natural contours of his jaw and give him a more toned appearance. He explained that removing excess tissue and underlying fat would make it possible to tighten the underlying muscles and restore his jawline.
During the procedure, the patient only required local anesthesia with twilight sedation, which is similar to the type of sedation used during a colonoscopy. While recovering at home, his pain was minimal, and he barely needed ibuprofen, even during the first week after surgery. After eight weeks, he returned for a follow-up appointment, and his “after” photos show a significant reduction in tissue in his neck area. The sagging skin is long gone, and even his fine lines and wrinkles have been minimized. “You definitely have the eye of an artist,” he said, “You’ve given me back my confidence, and that is more than I could have ever asked for.”
Your Surgery Questions Answered by Dr. Kevin Sadati
Is it safe to have a lower facelift after having a heart attack? I have fully recovered from a heart attack a year ago.
Before consulting with a plastic surgeon about a lower facelift, it is important for your cardiologist to clear you for surgery, especially if general anesthesia is involved. Dr. Sadati only uses local anesthesia with twilight sleep during facelift procedures, but your overall heart health must also be taken into consideration because it impacts your ability to heal and recover fully. Once you’ve received approval from your cardiologist, then be sure to inform any potential surgeon of your previous heart attack, so that he or she is fully aware of your health and history before performing any surgical procedure.
