A facelift is a wonderful cosmetic procedure designed to take years off of your face, but that doesn’t mean it can provide you the all-around new look you were hoping for after your operation. Many patients have found that a combination of cosmetic procedures will truly give them the results that they want. Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in the facelift procedure has found that the following procedures best complement the traditional surgical facelift. Many Orange County patients have opted to have one or more of these procedures done along with their facelift at Dr. Sadati’s Newport Beach practice.
It is possible to have a non-surgical facelift performed at the same time as your traditional surgical facelift. The non-surgical procedure involves the injection of dermal fillers into your face. Most often, Dr. Sadati works with Restylane and RADIESSE. These fillers can help Dr. Sadati to reshape your skin and provide you with a more rejuvenated look. However, the non-surgical portion will only provide temporary relief, and you may need to come back for touch up procedures every few months.
When you are undergoing a facelift, the surgery itself will not make much of an impact on the deep, furrowed lines on your forehead. If this area is particularly problematic for you, you may want to have a brow lift performed at the same time as your facelift. Using tiny incisions in the forehead, Dr. Sadati alters the muscles and tissues in that area while at the same time repositioning the skin in order to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
When a patient has sagging skin along the jaw line, a facelift alone will not complete their look. Often, a neck lift can be performed in order to tighten the skin and muscles along the jaw and neck. This can make the patient look both slimmer and younger than before.
Neck liposuction is a quick and easy procedure that removes excess fat around the neck. It is perfect for a patient who may not have sagging skin at the jaw line but will still want to look trim and fit.
If you are considering one or more of these complementary procedures to go along with your facelift, be sure to discuss it with Dr. Sadati at your consultation appointment. One of the best parts about working with Dr. Sadati is that he truly considers each patient as an individual. He will not recommend additional procedures if he does not truly feel they will help add to your final result. He can help you decide if you need an additional, complementary, procedure performed or he can help you determine if a traditional facelift procedure will do the trick. While all of these procedures can provide some type of enhancement to your overall look, you will want to decide what will look best and most natural on you. Dr. Sadati will consider many different factors, including your lifestyle, personal preference, background and ethnicity.
