Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge | Dr. Kevin Sadati
After meeting with multiple plastic surgeons in the Cypress, California area, this patient chose Dr. Sadati for her lower facelift and neck lift. She’d reviewed his gallery of photos and was impressed when she learned he’d completed more than 3,500 neck and facelifts during his extensive career. She said, “I’m in my 70s, and I just don’t recognize myself anymore. My face has lost its shape, and this sagging skin in my neck area just makes me feel old.”
Dr. Sadati reassured her that she would look very natural and more refreshed, but she was worried about anesthesia. He explained that local anesthesia with twilight sedation, similar to that given during colonoscopy procedures, would be all that was necessary. Her surgery took approximately three hours, and she returned home the same day. Eight weeks later, before her “after” pictures were even taken, she was absolutely giddy about the results. “You shaved off 20 years,” she said. “I don’t look gaunt anymore, and my neck is so smooth. I finally look like my younger self again.”
Many of Dr. Sadati’s patients elect to have fat grafting with PRP, platelet-rich plasma, in addition to a SMAS facelift. Fat grafting restores volume to hollow areas and uses the patient’s own tissue instead of something artificial, like cosmetic fillers. PRP includes the patient’s own growth factors, which also improves recovery time. Fat grafting is suitable for the cheeks, the undereye area, and even the lips as it fills lines and plumps up wrinkles. Dr. Sadati recommends that you view patients’ “before” and “after” photos to ensure that the combination of procedures resulted in smooth, natural results.
