NECK LIFT Orange County

Trust your face in the hands of a facial specialist. With Dr. Kevin Sadati’s minimally invasive neck lift, there is no need for general anesthesia.

Over 3,500 patients have had their lower face and neck lift performed by Orange County facelift specialist Dr. Kevin Sadati. Using his Double “C” Plication (muscle tightening) technique, his patients receive a refreshed, youthful appearance without a ‘pulled’ or ‘artificial look’ often associated with a face and neck lift. Dr. Kevin Sadati’s patients refer to his revolutionary lower face and neck lift as the Natural Lift or Natural Face and neck lift, because of its natural looking, non-operated results. The procedure is performed in our surgical facility, under local anesthesia and twilight sedation. There is no need for general anesthesia in order for the patient to undergo a comfortable cosmetic surgery experience. Read Dr. Kevin Sadati’s publication on his Double “C” Plication Technique here.

Experience You Trust

The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery published Dr. Kevin Sadati’s unique muscle tightening technique in 2011. Since then, he has been invited to premier facial plastic surgery conventions such as the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and AOBOO-HNS in order to educate other plastic surgeons. Dr. Kevin Sadati continues to receive rave reviews from both his peers and his Newport Beach neck lift patients for his renowned Natural lift.

What goes up must come down. It’s a common phrase that we have heard throughout our lives, but what many individuals don’t realize is that the phrase applies to their face and neck. Gravity seems to pull on the skin, as an individual gets older, causing the skin to sag and hang. In many situations, gathers begin to form at the neck base. As that is happening, many individuals gain weight, which adds to the overall look and implies that the individual is older and more overweight than they actually are. In some individuals is purely genetic and aging process that causes severe laxity of neck tissue. To improve contouring of neck, Dr. Sadati offers the latest innovative neck cosmetic procedures that are performed at the comfort of his office located in Newport Beach. These procedures are performed using the advanced method of local anesthetics and twilight sedation without the need for general anesthesia.


What is a Lower Face and Neck Lift?

Some of the first things that individuals notice when they look in the mirror are a saggy lower face and a baggy neck. While this may be plaguing you, a full facelift may not be in order. A lower face and neck lift, or Natural facelift, is often the perfect solution. At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery located in Newport Beach California, we provide most advanced plastic surgery procedures that are specifically targeted to the area of the lower face and neck. With a minimally invasive procedure called the Double C Plication, the face and neck muscles are tightened in two layers in a gradual manner. This technique lifts the lower face softly preventing the “pulled” look; yet tighten the neck to a maximum degree creating smooth and rejuvenated neck. Recovery time is shortened, as it is less invasive. Since it is performed with local anesthesia and twilight sedation, the risk and complications of general anesthesia are eliminated.

What is a Non Surgical Laser Neck Lift?

Not everyone who walks into our Newport Beach office is a candidate for a surgical neck lift. For younger patients with early signs of aging neck, we offer the latest in fractionated Co2 laser and Radio Frequency technology for neck rejuvenation. The procedure is performed with topical anesthetics and oral sedatives.  Our laser neck tightening offers a youthful result, and will not have the invasiveness of a full surgical procedure.

Dr. Sadati’s Necklift Method

All of Dr. Sadati’s surgical team are genuinely caring and sympathetic to his patients’ needs. Our staff speaks softly and gently, which gives patients confidence during their procedure and contributes to a positive and reassuring experience. After sedative medications are given, the patients are so relaxed that they close their eyes and drift off to sleep.

Once you are comfortable, Dr. Sadati begins numbing the neck with local anesthesia and the numbness, which will last about 10 hours.  Then he starts your neck lift by making a small incision behind your ears and along your hairline. A neck lift is the combination of two procedures. The first is a cervicoplasty, which removes excess skin on the neck. The second procedure is a plastysmaplasty, which tightens the neck muscles. Small dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions. The result is a tight, smooth neck that looks up to thirty years younger.

“Dr. Sadati is an excellent doctor and surgeon! He is kind, caring, and very professional. He performed a lower facelift and necklift on me. He went into great detail about the procedure so I knew exactly what to expect. I absolutely love my results!"

What to Expect During Your Necklift Recovery

After your neck lift is complete, a gauze dressing is applied. The nerve blocking technique lasts about nine hours. Therefore, there is no immediate post-operative pain and no need for heavy narcotics. There is also no nausea and vomiting associated with this procedure since it is not performed under general anesthesia.

Patients may experience feelings of pulling and tightness. These are indications of a successful procedure and signal the path to neck lift recovery in Orange County. Patients may take Tylenol Extra Strength or a small dose of prescription pain medication if they are uncomfortable.

A neck lift generally takes about two hours. Some patients elect to have additional surgery (such as a neck liposuction, lower facelift, fat grafting, dermal fillers or cheek augmentation).

Your Private Consultation

Patients have long trusted Dr. Kevin Sadati, as he is one of the top board certified facial plastic surgeons in California as well as the country. His goal is not to do as many plastic surgeries as quickly as possible, but to perform surgeries that have a positive life impact on his patients.

This means developing a plan that is customized for each patient, and for this procedure that often means complementing the surgery with a facelift at the same time. Having a facelift done in tandem with neck tightening will ensure the entire face looks younger and the surgery is proportionate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a necklift make you look thinner?

Sometimes the key to looking both younger and thinner is all in a person’s neck. Excess skin and sagging skin around the cheek, neck, and jowls can give the appearance that a person is much older than what they really are, and can also give the impression that they are overweight as well.

By firming up and tightening the skin in this area, people will be able to redefine their prominent chin and facial bone structure, ultimately feeling younger and more beautiful. In California, the neck lift procedure is becoming one of the best choices when it comes to cosmetic surgery.

What causes the neck to sag?

For many people, a healthy diet and exercise regime is a part of their daily lives. They have rock hard abs, and the best looking legs around. Even people who have reached their middle ages find that they are able to keep up the bodies that they had in their youth simply by staying fit and eating right.

However, sometimes, even the healthiest of routines cannot prevent the aging process from taking its toll on a person’s face. As the years go on, many people find that despite living their best life, the skin around their neck starts to sag and they appear to have a double chin. For people like this in California, the neck lift is the cosmetic procedure that is perfect for them.

Should I get a facelift at the same time as my necklift?

Dr. Sadati often recommends that patients who opt for this procedure also look into having a lower facelift done as well. A lower facelift will ensure that skin will not bunch around the earlobes during neck lift, and also gives a uniform appearance across the entire face. For more information and to find out if this is the right cosmetic surgery for you, book your free consultation with Dr. Kevin Sadati. You won’t regret taking the time to do something for yourself.

What is the average cost of a neck lift?

Dr. Sadati has performed more than 3,500 face and neck lifts, and the two procedures are often done simultaneously. Neck lifts average $4,000 to $8,000, depending on the specific needs of the patient.

How long does it take to recover from a neck lift?

Dr. Sadati’s patients typically return to work and resume normal activity within two weeks. Tightness, bruising, and swelling are all a normal part of recovery, but these will dissipate within a few weeks.

Is a neck lift painful?

Since Dr. Sadati uses local anesthesia with twilight sedation, patients do not experience pain during their neck lift procedure. During recovery, most people report feeling some discomfort but not pain, and this can usually be reduced by taking over-the-counter pain medication, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Where are the incisions for a neck lift?

Incision sites vary depending on the type of neck lift that is being performed. In a traditional neck lift, incisions are made along the hairline and around the ears. If Dr. Sadati recommends a limited incision neck lift, the incisions will be shorter and placed around the ear as well. Patients who also receive neck liposuction will have an additional incision below the chin.

Can you have a neck lift without a face lift?

Every patient has unique needs, and Dr. Sadati offers guidance without pressuring patients to undergo unnecessary procedures. If a patient has sagging skin or neck muscles, but does not have significant sagging in the jowls, then a neck lift may be all that is necessary to achieve a refreshed, youthful neck.
