Dr. Sadati’s practice in Orange County attracts patients from diverse areas, including Leona Valley, California. This beautiful patient wanted the best plastic surgeon available and put her faith in Dr. Sadati after viewing his gallery of “before” and “after” photos and learning that he had been voted “Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County” by the Orange County Register for two back-to-back years. Gravity had squared off her jawline, and she felt her neck made her look old. Dr. Sadati recommended both a facelift and neck lift to make her outside appearance match her personality. He explained that she would receive twilight sedation similar to the kind administered during a colonoscopy and that it would wear off without the unpleasant nausea associated with general anesthesia.
During her surgery, he removed unwanted fat and excess skin from her neck, which eliminated the wattle below her chin. Next, he improved her facial contours by applying uniform tension to her entire face, which gave her a rejuvenated, smoother appearance. Her recovery was pleasant, and she didn’t experience any nerve damage whatsoever. When viewing her “before” and “after” pictures side by side at her 8-week post-operative appointment, she was overjoyed by how naturally rested she appeared. She hugged Dr. Sadati and told him that she couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon and was thankful for his artistry.

How Can I Avoid Getting a Pulled Up Look from a Face Lift?
Patients who are considering a facelift often worry about ending up looking as if their facial skin has been pulled too tight. Before undergoing a procedure of this magnitude, Dr. Sadati recommends several things. First, people should review the gallery photos on their potential surgeon’s website to see examples of his or her work. Dr. Sadati has performed more than 3,500 facelifts, and the before and after photos of his patients reveal his dedication to achieving facial balance and harmony. Every facelift should result in a rejuvenated appearance, but sometimes volume loss must be corrected with an additional procedure, such as fat grafting. The best way to avoid a “pulled up” look is to only consult with Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in facelifts and understand how to apply uniform tension to the patient’s entire face, which yields the smoothest, most natural looking results.
