Two of the biggest concerns facelift patients have involve anesthesia and post-operative pain. When discussing a lower facelift and neck lift with this patient, Dr. Sadati explained that having local anesthesia with twilight sedation is similar to the type of anesthesia used during a colonoscopy. Since he only numbs the area where he is working, patients have fewer complications and recover quicker. This patient was grateful for his caring and thorough explanation and decided to have her surgery right away.
During the procedure, Dr. Sadati restored the contours of her jawline, which made her face look more oval-shaped and less square. He also performed a neck lift, which made her neck bands less visible and improved the overall tautness of her skin. Her “after” photos were taken eights weeks later when she returned to Dr. Sadati’s Newport Beach facility. She was overjoyed, and you can see in her eyes that she is happy with her results and her decision to choose Orange County’s best facelift surgeon.
There are a lot of good reasons to quit smoking, and if you’re considering plastic surgery, your end result depends upon it. The nicotine in cigarettes causes the blood vessels to constrict, which reduces blood flow. Skin cannot live and wounds cannot heal without a healthy blood supply. Smokers have longer healing times and are also prone to more complications. Since some smoking cessation aids, like patches and gum, contain nicotine, they must be avoided as well. To ensure a good outcome, Dr. Sadati recommends that patients quit smoking at least six weeks before surgery. They should also refrain from smoking for the first four weeks afterward and are encouraged to quit for good.
