The aging process can be a frustrating experience. It’s no fun getting older, and it’s, definitely, no fun looking older than you feel. This is why many people in Orange County come to Dr. Kevin Sadati’s Newport Beach practice for a facelift procedure. A facelift is a cosmetic surgery designed to remove excess skin and tighten the skin on the face, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and allowing the patient to look nearly 10 years younger. Dr. Sadati is an expert facial plastic surgeon who is able to perform this procedure with precision, providing the patient with the most natural-looking results possible.
At his practice, Dr. Sadati recognizes that every patient is different, and each patient has different goals and expectations. He strives to provide a wide variety of procedure options so that every person who wants to rejuvenate their look has an opportunity to do so. Popular facelift procedure options include the traditional surgical procedure, the mini facelift, the natural facelift and the liquid facelift. All of these options will result in a refreshed, youthful appearance on the face, but each technique approaches the end goal differently.
Many patients are opting for the natural facelift, which is a unique and revolutionary procedure that was pioneered by Dr. Sadati himself. The natural facelift uses a technique titled the Double C Plication, which Dr. Sadati developed in order to provide patients discrete results. By applying a uniform tension to the entire face, Dr. Sadati is able to minimize lines and wrinkles without the face appearing tight or pulled back. There is virtually no bunching at the hairline or the earlobes so no one can tell that the patient had cosmetic work done on their face. This technique has not only made an impression on Orange County residents, but the professionals in the medical community have also taken notice. The Double C Plication technique was published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery in March 2011.
Most patients are ready to return to their daily lives 4 to 7 days after the operation is complete. The procedure itself is short, and most pain can be managed by using oral pain medications. Some minimal swelling might occur after the procedure is complete, but it should be gone completely within a week. Ice packs and cold compresses can help to reduce the swelling.
