Not just age, many other factors add to you looking aged before your years. When you do not like what you see in the mirror, it could also affect your self image and confidence. You can benefit from the range of facelift procedures that have offered thousands of patients the look they desire in addition to facial rejuvenation that takes years off their appearance.
When the ealry signs of aging begin to bother you, undergoing a major surgery might be holding you back from booking a consultation for a facelift. Dr. Sadati has pioneered the revolutionary mini facelift procedure which helps you maintain your youth without having to undergo a major procedure. This technique offers correction for sagging and loose skin in the neck area, cheeks and jowls. During your mini facelift procedure, Dr. Sadati will lift these areas by removing the excess fat before tightening the skin. Only small sutures are used to close your incisions so that there is minimal scarring and even those fade away soon helping you keep your procedure a secret if you so desire. It takes about 90 minutes for your mini facelift procedure and we recommend that you take time off for a week to heal well. The procedure while take almost a decade off your appearance and the results are mostly long lasting. However, factors like your skin texture, oil amounts in the skin and exposure to sun affect how long your results last.
For those patients who need a little more correction but are afraid of being stuck with results that leave a tightness around the eyelids and lips, Dr. Sadati offers another revolutionary facelift technique. Patients in Beverly Hills can choose the natural facelift or the Double C Plication method which leaves you with natural looking results and none of the characteristic pulled appearance of the traditional facelift. The technique and results from this are so innovative that it has led to Dr. Sadati being invited to several conferences globally to talk of this technique which uses uniform tension to give you a younger version of yourself. Your recovery from the procedure is easy with a revision rate that is less than 1%. It is possible to return to your daily routine within a week after your natural facelift.
Even though it is one of the most opted for cosmetic procedure after breast augmentation, not everybody who undergoes a facelift is satisfied with the results. Not only does Dr. Sadati offer procedures with almost negligible revision rates, he is also skilled at correcting the mistakes of other surgeons. If you are unhappy with a previously done facelift, book your consultation with Dr. Sadati so that he can review your face and customize the procedure to get you the face you always desired.

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:nn1. Patients had an increased desire to avoid the risks inherent to being put under general anesthesia.n2. Patients preferred having this procedure done because it is minimally invasive and provides them with a quicker recovery time.n3. Advancements in local anesthetic technique presented safer alternatives for our patients.n4. Reduced procedure cost.nnIn 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.nnWhile 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.nnDr. 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.nnTo 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.nnWhile 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.nnA 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.nnFollowing 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.nnCustomer 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.
