Procedure: Lower Facelift and Neck Lift, Anesthesia: Local Anesthesia with Twilight Sedation Gender: Female Age: 50-59 Yrs Old Post Op Timeline: 8 weeks Post Op
Many of Dr. Sadati’s patients want to look more toned naturally. When this patient from the Newport Beach area consulted with him, she was looking to see her younger self in the mirror. “My profile doesn’t look like me anymore,” she said, “and I just want my outside to match my inside.” Together, they discussed what to expect during the surgery and how her recovery might go.
Dr. Sadati explained that local anesthesia and twilight sedation have far less side effects than general anesthesia and that the effects of the medication would wear off quickly. She liked having one less thing to worry about and was excited to undergo a lower facelift and neck lift. Dr. Sadati removed some fatty tissue in her neck and tightened the underlying muscles. While completing her facelift, he applied uniform tension to her face and placed her sutures in a natural fold of skin, so there wouldn’t be any obvious scarring. During her 8-week post-operative photos, she was fully healed and overjoyed by the change in her profile. “I haven’t looked this young in years! You’re a true artist.”
Your Surgery Questions Answered with Dr. Kevin Sadati
Do earlobes change position after a face or neck lift?
When a face or neck lift is performed by a qualified Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, the earlobe should not change position. In some instances, if a surgeon improperly sutures the earlobe, it can result in a pulled or lowered appearance. This is often called a Pixie Ear or Spock Ear deformity. The deformity can be repaired with a reconstructive procedure, but it should not happen in the first place. Dr. Sadati recommends consulting with the original surgeon regarding the repair, but it may also be best to find a more qualified surgeon to fix the error.
