Dr. Sadati’s Newport Beach clients are often concerned about looking overworked after having a facelift. That was the concern this patient had when she met with him to discuss how he performs a face and neck lift. “I just want my skin to look and feel tighter, but I don’t want to look like a skinned cat,” she said. Dr. Sadati explained that the Double “C” Plication technique that he pioneered and published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery would give her a smooth, natural result without the pulled look that sometimes appears around a patient’s mouth.
She was concerned about the cardiac risks associated with general anesthesia and was relieved to learn that she could have her procedures performed with local anesthesia and twilight sedation instead.
To give her the most natural facelift, Dr. Sadati applied uniform tension to her facial muscles, which made her face look more refined and rejuvenated. Since he removed the unwanted tissue in her neck and reinforced the underlying muscles, he was able to restore her natural jawline and chin. She was returned to social activity in 10 days.
After four weeks, she was fully healed and ready for play golf and tennis. Her “after” pictures, especially when viewed from the sides, show a dramatic reduction in sagging skin and a clearly discernible bone structure that had been masked by aging skin. “I’m happy to have found you,” she told Dr. Sadati, adding, “It was worth the effort, and I’m so thankful that a surgeon with 600+ 5-star reviews was available so chose to home. Orange County is lucky to have you!”
Patients who are looking for non-invasive facial rejuvenation often benefit from undergoing a Profound Skin Tightening treatment. The procedure uses local anesthesia and stimulates the natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. During treatment, micro-needles deliver heated energy to the dermis. It rejuvenates the skin and restores volume to the mouth area, cheeks, and neck. Unlike dermal fillers that must be repeated frequently, a Profound treatment offers results in just one visit. Visible improvement can be seen 6–8 weeks after treatment, with full improvement occurring within 6–9 months. Patients with mild to moderate signs of aging are good candidates, and Dr. Sadati recommends using medical grade skincare and having a microneedling, Vivace, or Sculptra procedure 12 months later to maintain the results.
