When this lovely patient from the Newport Beach area came to Dr. Sadati, she was well informed about his expertise. “I saw that you were named the ‘Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County’ four years in a row.” She and Dr. Sadati discussed how to best rejuvenate her features since she didn’t like the way her cheeks had taken on a wavy appearance. Dr. Sadati felt a lower facelift would give her a natural looking result without any unwanted hairline bunching. She also wanted to tighten the appearance of her neck, and Dr. Sadati agreed that a neck lift was in order.
During her surgery, she only received local anesthesia and twilight sedation to numb her face and neck. Dr. Sadati removed the excess fatty tissue in her neck and redraped the skin in her face after tightening the muscles below it. These two procedures gave her face a more toned appearance, and her neck is smoother and firmer as well. Although Dr. Sadati recommended her to return in 3 months for laser resurfacing of neck to improve severe sun damage. “You can count on another 5-star review,” she said. “I love looking more youthful without any telltale signs of surgery. You’re the best facial plastic surgeon in Southern California, and I’m glad I found you.”
Your Surgery Questions Answered with Dr. Kevin Sadati
Is a facelift the only answer for marionette lines and jowls?
Depending on the patient’s age, injectable fillers may cosmetically improve the appearance of marionette lines, but this is only temporary. As a person ages, certain underlying muscles in the chin weaken and can only be repaired by surgery. Sometimes, a chin implant is necessary, and this also includes resuspending the muscle that holds it in place at a higher position. Jowls can be reduced and improved during a lower facelift, which gives the longest lasting results. Dr. Sadati recommends consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to receive specific guidance regarding your unique situation.
