Many of Dr. Sadati’s patients say, “I feel younger than I look. Can you fix that?” This gentleman had been unhappy with the way his neck and face were aging and decided in his 60s that it was time to refresh his appearance. He had reviewed Dr. Sadati’s gallery of results and felt that his skills would translate into a rejuvenated appearance without any obvious signs of surgery. Together, the two of them discussed performing a natural facelift and neck lift. Since the patient had lost some volume in his face, Dr. Sadati recommended facial fat grafting, which would restore the plumpness age had stolen.
During the procedures, the patient received twilight sedation and only local anesthesia to numb the areas being perfected. His surgery took approximately three hours, and he returned home to the Newport Beach area that same afternoon. Approximately eight weeks later, he met with Dr. Sadati and conveyed his appreciation for Dr. Sadati’s surgical finesse. “I don’t look like a grouchy old man anymore. That’s more than I could’ve asked for.”
This is one of the most common questions patients ask Dr. Sadati during their consultations. Some surgeons will throw out a number without a second thought, but Dr. Sadati’s answer is far more accurate. A successful facelift requires a skilled surgeon as well as a patient who understands that external factors, such as lifestyle, sun bathing, smoking, and overall skin care play a role both before and after surgery. If your skin is in good condition before the facelift, and you maintain it afterward, the results can last for years. To get the best outcome, make sure you choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a proven track record of excellence. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,500 facelifts and has more than 600 5-star reviews praising his skill. He is an award-winning surgeon who is active in the surgical community and pioneered the Natural Facelift technique known as Double “C” Plication.
