When this Newport Beach area patient consulted with Dr. Sadati, she was nervous about the surgical process, especially the risk of cardiac effects due to general anesthesia. She’d been considering a facelift and neck lift for several years but wanted to know more about how to minimize the associated side effects. Dr. Sadati explained that she would only need local anesthesia with twilight sedation, similar to the type of anesthesia used during a colonoscopy. Since she wouldn’t have any nausea or vomiting and would be numbed only in the areas where Dr. Sadati would be operating, she felt more at ease and decided to have him perform her surgery.
During her neck lift, Dr. Sadati tightened the muscles in her neck and eliminated the sagging skin that was making her neck look wrinkled. He then applied uniform pressure to her lower face and reinforced the underlying muscles, which gave her cheeks a smoother appearance and also minimized the look of her nasolabial folds. These “after” pictures were taken eight weeks after her surgery, and she was fully healed and thanked Dr. Sadati for being so caring and attentive. “Anyone can perform surgery, but it’s rare to meet someone who can make a person feel so at ease. I’m so thankful for your skill and caring demeanor.”
The aging process is a continuous one, and while a lower face and neck lift immediately improves the appearance of jowls and skin laxity, it cannot stop the natural process of aging. Dr. Sadati recommends choosing a highly qualified, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with an accessible “before” and “after” photo gallery, so you can see his or her results. Your results should leave you looking 5–10 years younger. Even 10 years after having a lower face and neck lift, you should still look younger than you did prior to your original surgery.
