She was dismayed about the laxity in her cheeks and the fact that her jawline no longer had a discernable shape. Dr. Sadati began by performing a neck lift to remove the loose skin and tightened the underlying muscles to restore her neck’s youthful shape. Since she had prominent vertical lines and wrinkles in her lower face, he performed a lower facelift, so her face would look firmer without having a pulled back appearance.
When she returned for her post-operative “after” photos approximately eight weeks later, she expressed her appreciation for the use of local anesthesia with twilight sedation during the procedure. “I didn’t have any bad side effects. The sedation was just like what I had during my colonoscopy. Since returning to work, people tell me I look so rested, and a few have even asked if I’ve lost weight! You’re definitely an artist, Dr. Sadati.”
Your Surgery Questions Answered by Dr. Kevin Sadati
Which technique is better? High SMAS or the SMAS facelift technique?
Facelift techniques vary because patients are unique individuals, so it is important to choose a cosmetic surgeon who understands both your desires and his or her own craft and tendencies. Achieving the most youthful, natural, long-lasting results should be the goal for the surgeon you select because manipulating and positioning the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) is done on an individual basis after examining each patient’s facial structure and signs of aging. For example, Dr. Sadati would not use the same tension or vector for a 70-year-old patient as he would for a 50-year-old patient. He would apply different levels of tension at the temple, jawline, and neck to achieve a natural looking result.
