Many patients come to Dr. Sadati because of his reputation as a caring, thorough cosmetic surgeon who doesn’t upsell unnecessary procedures. This patient had seen Dr. Sadati’s 600+ five-star reviews and felt he would listen to her concerns without pressuring her to do unnecessary work. She wanted her lower face to be more sculpted and wanted the sagging skin below her chin to be removed, so she’d feel more confident wearing jewelry. Since her eyelids also bothered her, Dr. Sadati said he could remove some fat through a tiny incision in the crease, which would make her look more bright-eyed.
On the day of her procedures, she received only local anesthesia with twilight sedation. Dr. Sadati performed a lower facelift and neck lift along with the eyelid surgery, and she was able to return home that afternoon to the Norco, California area to recover. After eight weeks, she came back for her post-operative appointment and was thrilled with how natural her face looked in such a short time. “The reviewers were spot-on. You’re the best plastic surgeon in Orange County, and I’m glad I did this in my 50s. I couldn’t be happier.”
At the 10-year post-facelift mark, many patients begin to show the natural signs of aging once more. Corrective facelifts, also known as revision facelifts, can refresh your appearance, but consulting with a highly experienced facelift surgeon is crucial because a revision procedure must be handled with precision. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,500 facelifts in his extensive career and approximately 20% of them are revision facelifts. These procedures do not require general anesthesia. By using local anesthesia and twilight sedation, there are rarely any post-operative complications, and pain, if any, can usually be managed with acetaminophen (Tylenol).
