Different ethnicities have different facial and bone structures, skin texture and tone, scarring tendencies, and beauty ideals. A surgical procedure performed on a Caucasian female can be vastly different than the same procedure performed on an Asian male. Though many surgical goals are standard across all ethnicities such as reducing the signs of aging, contouring and toning the body, and appearing more attractive, those belonging to different ethnic groups usually wish to maintain their cultural identities. A European beauty standard should not be applied to all patients.
African Americans, Asians, and Hispanics looking to reduce the signs of aging in their face may consider a facelift. When considering a plastic surgeon, it’s important to choose someone who has experience with your type of skin. Compared to Caucasian patients, ethnic patients have increased susceptibility to scarring. Dr. Sadati has experience minimize scarring for African American patients.
Typically, Asian patients have a flatter facial skeleton with heavier and thicker skin, causing the skin to sag in the lower portion of the face. In addition, many Asians experience more accumulation and droopiness of fat in the lower face and neck area. A facelift tailored to Asian patients focuses mostly on the lower portion of the face while taking into account thicker skin. Dr. Sadati also takes special precautions to avoid keloid scarring in Asian patients.
African American Facelifts
African American patients see aging later in life than most Caucasians. Typically, the neck, cheek, and jawline begin to droop, forming nasolabial folds and jowls. A facelift tailored to African American skin focuses on the droopiness of the lower half of the face and takes into account thicker skin. Because African Americans experience keloid scars more frequently, Dr. Sadati takes extra precautions to ensure minimal scarring.
Hispanic patients age differently than Caucasians. With thicker skin, their skin tends to sag and droop rather than experience wrinkles and lines. Facelifts for Hispanic patients focus on tightening the skin and lifting droopy and saggy skin. Dr. Sadati has performed many Hispanic facelifts and is sensitive to maintaining cultural identity.

He prides himself on his natural-looking results and sensitivity to individual ethnic features and goals.
