Facelift Newport Beach & Orange County

The facelift is by far the most effective method of correction for moderate to severe signs of facial aging. Esteemed Orange County facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati provides Newport Beach facelift patients with results that convey a natural elegance that only a true artist could provide.

Aging is inevitable, so why not age artistically? Visible signs of aging occur due to biological, genetic, and lifestyle factors. Over time, our skin weakens, and the aging process takes its toll on our once youthful face and neck. As a result, we no longer look the way we did in our 20s and 30s, which can lower self-confidence.

However, a youthful facial profile does not have to be a distant memory. A natural facelift by Dr. Kevin Sadati can help to restore a more youthful appearance that can turn back the clock and make you look years younger. An artist at heart, Dr. Sadati approaches all his facelift patients with the vision of enhancing their innate beauty; producing beautiful, natural-looking results that are never over-done or artificial-looking.

Facial Rejuvenation Options in Newport Beach

There are many surgical options and facelift techniques that Dr. Sadati can use as part of your facial rejuvenation treatment plan. The most common choice is the traditional, full facelift, which is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and tightens muscles around the face.

However, because Dr. Sadati is a pioneer in this industry, he wanted to improve on the typical, traditional facelift techniques. Recently, his Natural Facelift procedure was published by the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. This procedure aims to give people facial rejuvenation results without causing them to look or feel tight or pulled back.

Other options for facial rejuvenation include the liquid facelift, or non-surgical facelift, which uses injectable dermal fillers to give patients subtle, temporary results. There is also a mini facelift, which addresses specific problem areas on the face, such as the cheek area or around the eyes, of someone in Newport Beach who is just showing the first signs of facial aging.

Experience You Trust

When it comes to the facial aging process, you can’t take any chances. If you are considering facelift surgery in Orange County, you need the expertise of an experienced surgeon who will do the job right the first time. At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, that is exactly what you will get. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,500 facelift and neck lift procedures to provide long-lasting results for men and women in Newport Beach.

You should feel comfortable with your surgeon, and Dr. Sadati will work hard to make you comfortable with his innovative facelift procedures. From answering questions and addressing concerns during in-depth consultations to being gentle during the actual facelift procedures, he will ensure that your entire experience is something to smile about. And with our patient testimonials published online, you don’t just have to take our word for it!

Preparing For Your Facelift

If you have moderate to severe signs of aging, you may benefit from a facial rejuvenation procedure like a facelift. Dr. Sadati is a highly trained facial plastic surgeon and will work closely with you during your consultation to determine the best techniques and methods to achieve your desired result.

Common signs of aging that can be improved through a facelift procedure include but are not limited to:

  • Loose skin present around the chin, jawline, and neck, creating the look of a sagging jowl
  • Moderate to severe wrinkles or folds running from the nose to corners of the mouth, also known as nasolabial folds
  • Cheeks that have lost volume over time that now appear lower and fattened
  • Many fine lines throughout the lower face region

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities, which is why we work with you throughout the process to ensure a truly personalized experience for your facial rejuvenation results. If you’re eligible for any of our facelift techniques, a Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge patient coordinator will help you to schedule your procedure as well as pre- and post-op appointments to address any questions or concerns you may have.

What are the Steps of a Facelift Procedure?

A facelift is performed under twilight sedation without the need for general anesthesia. Twilight sedation is a process in which both local and intravenous (IV) sedation are used to lower patients’ state of consciousness without putting them completely to sleep. Next, an incision is made in the hairline around the ear. Through this incision, liposuction can be used to remove excess facial fat, and the tissues of the face, including muscles, are tightened. Excess skin can also be removed.

Once Dr. Sadati is happy with the facelift results, the skin is redraped so that it appears tighter, smoother, and more youthful. When these steps are complete, incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures.

What to Expect During Your Facelift Recovery

Post-operative facelift recovery is quick, and any first-day discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Any swelling or tenderness around the incisions usually subsides during the first week after the procedure. Swelling can be minimized by icing and keeping the head in a slightly elevated position when sleeping. Newport Beach, CA facelift surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati also suggests the use of Arnica Montana to aid in recovery, which has been used medically for years for its anti-inflammatory effects.

After facelift surgery patients are advised to avoid the sun as much as possible and to wear sunscreen when going outdoors. Results can be seen immediately following surgery; however, most patients feel they are ready to face the world within 7 days. The amount of recovery time varies depending on the person, but most patients report they are back to work within one week’s time and are ready to resume their normal activities.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Dr. Sadati takes the time to ensure each person he works with is a good candidate for the procedure that they desire. People who are interested in a Newport Beach facelift procedure must first schedule a consultation appointment where Dr. Sadati will determine if they are, in fact, eligible for a facelift.

The ideal candidate for this procedure has already started to show signs of aging. Many patients are between the ages of 40 and 70 years old. Most often, the skin around their cheeks and jowls has started to sag. Some people have excess skin and fat around their neck or eyelids. In addition to showing the initial signs of aging like sagging skin and facial fat, Dr. Sadati prefers to work with patients who have a strong, defined bone structure. This gives him a natural guideline to work with, allowing patients to look most like a younger, natural version of themselves.

What To Expect From a Facelift Consultation

Once candidacy has been determined, the patient will be given a complete mental and physical exam. It is important that patients are in good health, and have the ability to withstand a surgery and the healing process. It is also vital that all patients have a realistic expectation of the surgery, and recognize that while it will allow them to look younger, it will not prevent them from aging in the future.

Patients have come to find that they can trust Dr. Sadati implicitly. They know that he takes the time to get to know them, understand their goals and desires, and provide them with the best facelift results possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does a facelift require general anesthesia?

Not anymore! In fact, one of the specialized areas of my practice has involved many successful facelifts, also known as the ‘Natural Lift’ using only local anesthesia with twilight sedation which patients love. Traditionally, facelifts were performed under general anesthesia or under intravenous (IV) sedation. As skill and knowledge of facial plastic surgery advanced, the usage of local anesthesia for facelifts has increased. I perform most of my lower facelift surgeries under local and twilight sedation. The transfer of using general anesthesia to using local anesthesia was brought about by several factors:

  • Patients had an increased desire to avoid the risks inherent to being put under general anesthesia.
  • Patients preferred having this procedure done because it is minimally invasive and provides them with a quicker recovery time.
  • Advancements in local anesthetic technique presented safer alternatives for our patients.
  • Reduced procedure cost.

In the thousands of facial cosmetic surgery procedures I have performed, the local option is an extremely safe, effective and comfortable way of serving the needs of my patients.

While local anesthesia and twilight sedation is a popular choice, it is not for everyone. Some patients require extensive cosmetic surgery that is best performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation. The most appropriate course of treatment for each patient is best discovered during a personal one-on-one consultation with a careful review of their medical history.

What can I expect from a facelift with local anesthesia?

Most patients are quite happy with the ease of this procedure. A common fear among patients is that they know needles will be used to numb the skin, and they want to know if it will it hurt, or they may be nervous about the number of injections used. Will it hurt? To their pleasant surprise, the injection process is very tolerable. Dr. Sadati goes to great lengths to create a calm and comforting atmosphere, which alleviates much of the patient’s stress. He will not start the numbing process until his patient is completely relaxed by the use of a few Valium and other sedatives. Most patients are quite happy with the ease of this procedure.

Dr. Sadati makes it a point to have a good surgical team in place. He will not work with anyone but employees that are mild-mannered and sympathetic to his patients’ needs. His injection technique is a key component of patient comfort, and he only uses a very small needle and a gentle touch in addition to a mild mixture of anesthetic to minimize any burning sensation.

To guarantee patient comfort, cotton earplugs, requested music, or soothing nature sounds (such as ocean waves or tropical rainforest) may be played on our state-of-the-art sound system. Most patients close their eyes and drift off to sleep—even if they did not plan to! While some patients do experience pre-surgical anxiety, most reach a state of relaxation and sleep. For those who need a little something extra, we offer IV sedation to help take the edge off their nerves.

While the local anesthesia and twilight sedation will not produce any painful sensations, one may experience feelings of tightness. These are indications of a successful procedure and signal the path to recovery.

A facelift can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on the patient’s needs. Time estimates are reviewed during the consultation as well as during the procedure so the patient knows what to expect.

Following the procedure, our patients are encouraged to sit up and walk around. We offer refreshments including filtered water or a nutritious anti-oxidant drink with key vitamins to replace electrolytes. With twilight sedation, there are no ugly after-effects such as nausea or grogginess. As a precaution, the patient’s vital signs are closely monitored and discharged only after a thorough post-op review. Upon an informal exit interview, those who have had a facelift in the past under general anesthesia usually comment that they prefer the local anesthesia option.

Customer service is a key component of our practice, and I personally call each patient to follow up after their surgery. It has been my experience that most patients are delighted with the ease and comfort of the procedure. In fact, patients are provided with my 24-hour contact number should they need me at any time.

What is a Natural Mini facelift?

The Natural Mini Lift is a safe, revolutionary approach to a facelift that provides superior, long-lasting results. This procedure was pioneered by renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati to improve the look of jowls, cheeks, and very mild loose neck. Individuals in their 40’s are good candidates for this procedure.

The cheeks, jowls, and neck are lifted by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscle, and re-draping the skin resulting in a younger, natural look. The procedure takes about 90 minutes using a local anesthesia and twilight sedation without the need for general anesthesia.  Normal social activities can be resumed in about a week. There may be minimal tightness and numbness that ultimately fades.  Strenuous exercises can be resumed in 4 weeks.

What are the benefits of a Natural Lift procedure?

Natural Lift patients enjoy a faster, more comfortable recovery than patients that have a traditional facelift. What’s more, the Natural Lift methodology is less apparent than a traditional facelift, giving your skin a smoother, radiant look. The Natural Lift does away with the look of the “tight-face” or the “pulled look” from most traditional facelifts.

Are there significant risks associated with surgery?

There are uncertainty and risk involved with any surgery. While complications associated with facelifts are extremely rare, risks may include: infection, bleeding, and adverse reaction to the medications, delayed healing, numbness in certain part of ears. Smokers have an increased risk for slow or incomplete healing.

However, Dr. Sadati’s Natural Lift method avoids facial nerve injury because it is minimally invasive and provides a local anesthesia and twilight sedation option. I will not cut the facial muscle and tendon known as SMAS; this may increase the risk of facial nerve damage. I simply fold the muscle and tendon (aka Plication) to prevent prolonged recovery and facial nerve damage.

Am I a good candidate for a facelift?

If your jowls and neck have started to sag, then you are a good candidate for a facelift. Good candidates also possess a strong, well-defined bone structure. Patients should have a realistic expectation of their surgery and understand that the procedure does not change who you are as a person—it simply rejuvenates your look.

Can I expect permanent results from a facelift?

The results will vary from person-to-person, but that doesn’t mean the clock has stopped; we will continue to age. The good news is that we can turn the clock back a bit making us look and feel 10 years younger! I tell my patients that in ten years, no matter what, you will look better from having the natural facelift than if you had not had it done at all.

What is the recovery like?

After the procedure is completed, a gauze bandage dressing is applied, and patients usually experience some slight tightness around the ears and jawline on their first night after surgery. Any discomfort can be effectively managed with Tylenol; however, prescription pain medication will be made available. The following day, your dressing is removed, and you’re instructed to wear a light elastic wrap for seven nights (this will be provided to you). Any discoloration or swelling around the face and neck commonly subside after a week. Doctors advise against exposure to the sun and any strenuous activity for a minimum of two weeks.

How do I find a qualified plastic surgeon in my area?

A new, youthful face requires a skilled specialist with experience and board certification credentials. Dr. Sadati is a board certified facial plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation. Be sure to check before and after pictures to get a feel for your prospective doctor’s results.

Can men have a facelift?

Absolutely! This is the 21st century after all and cosmetic surgery is no longer exclusively for women. Many men are considering procedures to gain a more youthful, refreshed look for themselves too. The concept is tailored for men to highlight and sharpen the angular structures of the jaw, neck, and chin. The incision lines are slightly different for men; therefore, skin sutures are placed under the skin (subcuticular sutures) no sutures outside or any tracks.

What is the Lunch Time facelift?

The “Lunch Time” lift is a bit of a misnomer and is also known as a “thread lift.” It’s a procedure that uses thread to pull up the loose tissue without removing any excess skin, sometimes leading to tissue bunching and irregularity at the hairline. It only lasts about 6-9 mounts. It is quickly losing favor in the medical community and Dr. Sadati does not believe its results are satisfactory in the long run.

What is a Weekend facelift?

The Weekend Lift is just another name for a Mini Lift. The benefits to the patient are that it’s a short downtime with maximum results. A weekend facelift gives patients a more refreshed look without the signs or cost of a major surgery.

What is the best age to have a facelift?

Perhaps the most common question concerns timing. Some of my patients worry that if they proceed too soon they may need multiple procedures later in life. Others worry that if they wait too long, it may be too late to have one. Many people start on face and neck lift procedures in their late 40s to late 70s. Typically, face and neck lift procedures can set back the clock for nearly a decade. Although aging will continue, you will look younger than if you had not had the surgery. Face and neck lift procedures can be safely repeated in 8-10 year intervals.
