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 his 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 gravity takes its toll on our once youthful face, lips, and neck. As a result, we no longer look the way we did in our 20’s and 30’s.
However, a youthful facial profile does not have to become a distant memory, a natural facelift by Dr. Kevin Sadati can help to restore a more youthful appearance that would make you look better, but not different. An artist at heart, Dr. Sadati approaches each patient with the vision of enhancing their natural beauty; producing beautiful results that are never over-done or artificial-looking.

Post-operative facelift recovery is quick, and any first-day discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Any swelling or tenderness around the incision areas 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 facelift surgeon, Dr. Kevin Sadati even suggests the use of Arnica Montana to aid in recovery. Used medically for years for its anti-inflammatory effects.
Post 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.

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.

Nothing in life, including a facelift, is permanent. Dr. Sadati’s patients experience prolonged positive results for up to 10 years if they take care of their skin, but the aging process itself cannot be stopped entirely. Choosing the best board-certified plastic surgeon available will equate to better results long-term.
Many of Dr. Sadati’s facelift patients continue to have beautiful results 5–10 years after their procedure. Genetics and skin care are both factors in longevity, so Dr. Sadati thoroughly explains how to achieve the best results long-term.
A facelift should be a pain-free procedure, which is why Dr. Sadati combines local anesthesia with twilight sedation. His patients recover quicker and don’t experience post-anesthesia side effects. When recovering at home, most people only need minimal pain medication for a few days. Swelling and bruising are common, but the discomfort usually subsides quickly.
Age, alone, is rarely the most important reason to pursue a facelift. Most patients choose Dr. Sadati because he focuses on rejuvenating their appearance when signs of aging, such as sagging, occur. Many of his Orange County patients opt for a facelift in their 40s or 50s when their skin is still resilient enough to benefit from the procedure, but older patients benefit as well, even beyond their 60s.
