When this lovely patient from the Newport Beach area consulted with Dr. Sadati, she said, “I’ve taken good care of my skin, but some things are beyond my control.” She was referring to the crepiness in her neck and the sagging skin below her chin. She asked if there was a way to tighten the lower portion of her face, so Dr. Sadati explained his Double “C” Plication technique. She was looking for results similar to what she found in his “before” and “after” gallery photos, but was also nervous about potential nerve damage and the side effects of anesthesia.
Dr. Sadati explained that his natural facelift technique had no possibility of causing facial nerve damage and that the local anesthesia with twilight sedation would wear off without causing nausea or vomiting. During her facelift, Dr. Sadati applied uniform tension to her face and restored her facial contours. He removed both excess skin and fat during her neck lift, which gave her neck a slimmer, refined appearance. After her surgery, she returned home the same day. Eight weeks later, she came back for her follow-up appointment and told Dr. Sadati how grateful she was for his expertise and soothing manner. “If I could give you 100 stars, I would,” she said. “You listened to my needs and delivered. I can’t thank you enough!”
Your Surgery Questions Answered with Dr. Kevin Sadati
What is the best non-invasive non-surgical facial procedure for a 62-year-old?
There is no singular answer when it comes to nonsurgical procedures because every person ages at a different rate. That said, Dr. Sadati would recommend a variety of procedures to address unique concerns on an individual basis. For patients with mild to moderate signs of aging, a Profound Skin Tightening treatment offers 37% of the results of a lower facelift. It restores volume in the mouth area, tightens the cheeks and neck, and lasts 1–2 years or longer with proper skin maintenance. The procedure requires only local anesthesia, and the microneedles deliver heated energy below the skin, which encourages the patient’s own body to produce more elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, resulting in a tighter, plumper, more youthful appearance.
