Facelift in Costa Mesa, CA


Natural Facelift

Costa Mesa Natural Face LiftIn March 2011, the world of cosmetic surgery was turned upside down. It was during this month that Dr. Kevin Sadati’s procedure, the Double C Plication, was published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.

Dubbed the Natural Facelift, this surgery has been hailed one of the most innovative cosmetic procedures of this time. By producing the natural-looking results that patients have desired for many years, Dr. Sadati has become one of the most desired cosmetic surgeons in California, in particular in the Costa Mesa area.

Patients who have this procedure performed get the facelift that they desire the skin around their cheek and jowls is tightened up, but their lips and eyelids do not appear to be pulled back on. This is because Dr. Sadati uses an innovative technique that applies a uniform tension to the entire face. In addition to these natural results, patients have found that the recovery is easier than that of a traditional lift, since local anesthetics and oral sedation is used for the surgery. One remarkable fact is that the revision rate is extremely low for this surgery. Dr. Sadati studied more than 1,500 cases, and found that there was a less than 1 percent rate of revision.

In a matter of hours of the surgery’s completion, patients will be able to see the remarkable results of their procedure. Within a week, most patients are ready to return to work and everyday life looking between 10 and 15 years younger than they did before. The best part is, friends and family will be left to wonder just what it is that is making their friend look so great. It is a subtle and discrete procedure but still provides results. To find out if you are a good candidate, set up a free consultation today.

Traditional Facelift

Costa Mesa Traditional FaceliftIt’s the most popular facial plastic surgery for a reason. Not only will a Costa Mesa traditional facelift give you back the beauty and vivaciousness of your youth, it also is one of the easiest cosmetic surgery procedures to recover from.

The ideal candidate is anywhere from 40 to 70 years old, and has a strong and definitive facial bone structure. Essentially, the skin that sags around the jowls and neck will be pulled back, and wrinkles around the eyes and nose will be minimized as well.

One thing that is important to know about this procedure is that it does not completely stop the aging process. Once it is complete, the normal aging process will resume for patients. However, many are relieved to find out that the procedure can be redone every 8-10 years if it is desired.

Many patients express concerns about the anesthesia to Dr. Kevin Sadati. The fact that small needles are used to insert the local anesthetic can cause some anxiety, but Dr. Kevin Sadati and his support staff work to ensure that all patients feel calm and comfortable during the procedure. The ability to relax will greatly improve the overall results.

Typical recovery time lasts anywhere from 4-7 days, and most patients are able to resume normal day-to-day activities and head back to the office within a week’s time. It is important that patients recognize that their skin has been stretched and is exceptionally vulnerable to the sun’s powerful rays. Recovering patients should limit sun exposure whenever possible, and if necessary, apply plenty of sunscreen to protect themselves. There is sometimes mild pain and discomfort after the surgery, and Dr. Sadati will often prescribe oral pain medications to help patients manage their pain levels.

Revision Facelift

Costa Mesa Revision FaceliftThere are many reasons that people who have had facelift procedures in the past find themselves considering a surgery to touch up issues that have cropped up over time. For starters, a traditional lift is expected to last for 8-10 years. At that time, patients can opt to have another lift done or might decide to let the natural aging process continue.

However, for other people, a first lift was done improperly or was done with mistakes, and they did not get the results that they want. For residents of Costa Mesa, there is hope. A revision facelift procedure can be performed by Dr. Kevin Sadati, one of the most sought after facial plastic surgeons in California.

Dr. Sadati has a low revision rate for his own traditional lifts, and he knows the challenges he faces when working on a revision procedure.

Despite knowing it’s an uphill battle, there is no case that he deems to difficult for him to take on. He attempts to use previous incision lines to map out his surgical plan, so as to keep scarring on the face to a minimum for the patient. While he is willing to stand up to the challenge of any revision surgery, he notes that it is extremely important that patients recognize that they must have realistic expectations of the results.

The ideal candidate for this procedure is in their late 40s to early 70s, and is in good enough mental and physical health to withstand not only the surgery itself but also the recovery period. The severity of the case will determine how long a particular patient’s recovery will be. To find out what will be involved in your own revision surgery, call for a free consultation with Dr. Sadati. It’s the first step toward fixing the issue and becoming a better you.


How can I tighten loose skin on my face?

RadioFrequency and laser devices can help minor skin laxity. Facelift is a better option for moderate to severe skin laxity.

How do I tighten my jawline?

For minor laxity of jawlines RadioFrequency and Laser devices are recommended. For sever jawline laxity, a lower facelift would be the best option.

What is the best age for a facelift?

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.
