Procedure: Lower Facelift and Neck Lift, Anesthesia: Local Anesthesia with Twilight Sedation Gender: Female Age: 50-59 Years Old Post Op Timeline: 8 weeks Post Op
Although this patient was from the Costa Mesa, California area, she consulted with plastic surgeons in and around Beverly Hills and Orange County before selecting Dr. Sadati. She had reviewed his photo gallery and felt his “Double C” Plication method would give her the best results because she was primarily unhappy with her sagging jawline and the vertical lines in her cheeks that seemed to be pulling her appearance downward. She liked that Dr. Sadati had been named the “Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County” by the Orange County Register four years in a row and that he had performed more than 3,500 face and neck lifts with such high customer satisfaction ratings.
On the day of her procedure, she received local anesthesia with twilight sedation, similar to that used during a colonoscopy. Dr. Sadati removed the sagging skin from her neck, tightened the underlying muscles in her neck and face, and substantially improved the overall firmness of her face. After eight weeks, she returned for her post-operative follow-up and “after” photos. She was very happy to have a more rounded jawline again and loved that Dr. Sadati was able to make her nasolabial folds less pronounced. “I added another 5-star review to your ratings,” she said, “but I wish I could give you 10 stars.”
Your Surgery Questions Answered with Dr. Kevin Sadati
Will I have visible scars from a facelift?
Whenever the skin is cut, there will be a scar. How obvious the scar will depend upon your surgeon’s expertise as well as how you care for the wound as it heals. After a facelift, patients should refrain from smoking as well as rigorous exercise for several weeks. This ensures that the skin heals properly without being tugged or pulled at the suture site. Your general health and genetic profile also factor into wound healing.
As a general rule, plastic surgeons carefully select incision areas that will have a natural fold in them. Sutures are places parallel to the hairline and at the juncture of the ear, so they are less noticeable and may appear to be a natural sign of aging. Dr. Sadati recommends that potential patients review gallery photos, including “before” and “after” pictures, to see how his work heals. If the surgeon you are considering has photos that reveal obvious scars, you should look elsewhere before committing to surgery.
