When this gentleman met with Dr. Sadati, he felt he needed a little “freshening up.” Although he was in his 50s, he felt his neck and sagging lower face made him look tired and worn out. He was worried about looking unnatural, but Dr. Sadati explained that his “Double C” Plication technique would not result in a pulled back appearance and that his scarring would be minimal and hard to detect.
Dr. Sadati removed the excess skin sagging below the patient’s chin and tightened the muscles underneath, which gave his neck a much more youthful appearance. When performing his facelift, he carefully applied uniform pressure to his face, which made him appear refreshed and even thinner. When he returned for his post-operative “after” photos, he was excited to have recovered so easily and with only minimal discomfort. “I went back to work within weeks, but I look like I went on a year-long vacation.” He was also grateful to find the best cosmetic surgeon within driving distance from the Santa Clarita, California area.
Your Surgery Questions Answered by Dr. Kevin Sadati
In a SMAS facelift, what are the differences between suspension, imbrication, and plication?
Patients often ask for a specific definition for terms, such as suspension, imbrication, and plication. While each method is different, the effectiveness of the procedure depends more upon the surgeon’s expertise and the patient’s condition than just the technique. Dr. Sadati’s pioneering “Double C” Plication method gives the most natural results without the obvious signs of cosmetic surgery, like looking pulled back or overworked. In early facelifts, sutures were utilized exclusively to lift and “suspend” the sagging skin and hold it in place, but this approach did not address the underlying musculature and often resulted in visible bunching at the hairline. Imbrication involves resecting the SMAS, while plication does not. Plication achieves the most natural results because it allows Dr. Sadati to apply uniform tension and varying traction where it’s needed.
