Look younger in minutes with a liquid facelift by Dr. Sadati!
Many patients who look into plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery options wonder what the difference is between a traditional facelift and a liquid facelift. The liquid lift has increased in popularity due to its efficacy, but it is important that patients who choose this option research it thoroughly before decided to have it done.
There are many benefits to having the liquid lift. Essentially, the liquid lift is completed by Dr. Kevin Sadati injecting liquid fillers into the facial tissue which fills it out to make it appear more like it did when the person was 5-10 years younger. It can eliminate the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and this procedure has a very quick recovery time.

Many people might assume that the only way to get rid of the wrinkles on their face and the sagging skin around their cheek is to undergo a complete traditional facelift procedure. There are many other options available, with one of the best alternatives being a liquid facelift. During this procedure, a surgeon injects dermal fillers into a person’s face in order to fill out the face once again. Up to 10 years can be removed from a person’s appearance by filling out the face.
Dermal filler, also known as injectable filler, is a soft tissue filler that is injected into the skin to help skin look younger by filling in facial wrinkles to restore lost facial volume and a smoother appearance. Most dermal fillers work on a temporary basis and are eventually absorbed by the body.
Dr. Kevin Sadati is a board certified facial plastic surgeon in Orange County who specializes in this unique procedure. It is a popular choice for many patients largely because of the ease of the procedure and relatively quick recovery time.
Within hours of completing the procedure, most patients are able to return to their normal activities. Dr. Sadati does warn patients that there might be some swelling initially and that acetaminophen can be taken to help patients manage their pain levels. It is important to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for several days after the liquid lift is performed.
As the physiological features of the face are not altered, the natural aging process will continue, and in time, the person will form lines and wrinkles once again. This procedure often has to be redone several times during the course of a person’s lifetime.
To discuss this procedure in depth and find out if it is the right choice for you, book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Sadati today. Together, you can decide what the best option for you might be given your age, skin complexion and a variety of other factors that must be considered. It’s the first step toward a new, younger-looking you.
What is the difference between a surgical and non-surgical facelift?
For a surgical facelift, excess skin is removed from the face and tissues are pulled to a higher position. The surgeon will also tighten facial muscles in order to reduce the impact of sagging skin, as well as slow down the aging process in the future. This is the only procedure that can combat sagging skin.
Results of a surgical facelift are long-lasting. Most patients will find that they will look nearly 10 years younger, and the results will last for about a decade. At that point, many signs of aging might appear again but the patient has the option of having another facelift surgery performed. There is a period of recovery that patients must go through after the surgical facelift. Most patients will spend between 7 to 10 days recovering, and there is some minor swelling after the surgery. However, after the short recovery period, most people are ready to resume their normal lives.
For non-surgical facelifts, dermal fillers are used during a non-surgical facelift, and they reduce the impact and appearance of wrinkles on the face. It is a quick and easy procedure that provides instant results. Most patients are in and out of Dr. Sadati’s office within an hour and are ready to return to their normal lives looking fresh and full of life once again. The results of a non-surgical facelift procedure are only temporary. Dr. Sadati sees most patients back within 6-9 months for a touch-up procedure. Routine visits to the cosmetic surgeon are required in order to maintain the new look that is achieved with a non-surgical facelift.
