Choosing the best facelift surgeon possible was priority number one for this patient. She consulted with multiple cosmetic surgeons before discovering that Dr. Sadati had been voted “Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County” by the Orange County Register four consecutive years. During her research, she learned about Dr. Sadati’s extensive experience and surgical finesse, and since he had performed more than 3,500 face and neck lifts, she scheduled a consultation to discuss her concerns.
Upon arrival, she was very enthusiastic, and it was obvious that her personality was much bubblier and that she was more outgoing than her appearance indicated. Even though she was only in her 50s, her face was quite lax, and her jawline was no longer smooth or taut. Dr. Sadati recommended neck lift to remove some sagging neck tissue as well as a facelift to restore the underlying contours of her face. She was worried about looking overdone, but Dr. Sadati reassured her and explained that a Natural Facelift prevents the facial skin, especially around the eyes and the lips, from looking like it’s been pulled tight. The process involves a gradual tightening of the facial muscles, which also means there is no risk of facial nerve damage or any tell-tale signs of bunching at the hairline.
On the day of her procedure, Dr. Sadati explained everything in detail, so she would know exactly what to expect. She received local anesthesia with twilight sedation, which minimizes the risk of bleeding and also helps avoid uncomfortable side effects, like nausea and vomiting. Once her surgery was complete, she was monitored for an hour in our comfortable post-op recovery suite and then went home the same day.
As you can see in these before and after pictures, the results are natural and beautiful. She looks rested, happy, and more youthful. Her downtime was minimal, and she was able to return to work within one week.
She was also excited that she did not have to travel far away from Dana Point California to visit Dr. Sadati in Newport Beach in Orange County.
Your Surgery Questions Answered with Dr. Kevin Sadati
How long will the facelift last?
Since every person is different, it’s difficult to definitively say how long a facelift will last. Your surgeon’s skills and technique are key factors in longevity, but a facelift should be long lasting, with 8-10 years being typical. Genetics, skin condition at the time of your procedure and lifestyle habits also play a role. You can prolong results by avoiding excess sun exposure, smoking, and following a good skin care regimen. Laser procedures like IPL can also help to maintain a facelift result.
