Choosing to Have a Facelift and neck lift in Orange County
As we age, the skin on our face loses elasticity. This causes fine lines to emerge around our eyes and mouth, bags to appear below our eyes, and formerly strong jaw lines to soften into a double chin. Since looking our best is an important part of self-esteem, these changes can be distressing.
In particular, residents of Orange County want to look as young as they feel while enjoying an active California lifestyle that includes water sports, amusement parks, fine dining and cultural events. For patients in their 40’s through 70’s, a facelift or neck lift can help you “turn back the clock” and appear more youthful, rested and confident.
A facelift and neck lift – technically known as a “rhytidectomy” – is a surgical procedure that can treat all of the major signs of aging on the face. If performed by a skilled surgeon, a facelift can erase the wrinkles and creases around your eyes, nose and mouth. It can also eliminate jowls and reduce the bags under your eyes. The result is a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance of your face and neck that can make you look ten to fifteen years younger.
Natural Facelift: A Refreshed, Younger Version of You!
Dr. Kevin Sadati, an expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, developed the natural facelift (technically known as the “Double C Plication technique”) in response patient requests for a discreet, natural facelift result. Patients told Dr. Sadati that they wanted to “look more youthful, but not like we’d had work done.” Dr. Sadati has developed a unique facial muscle tightening for facial rejuvenation. His technique has been published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. He has given numerous presentation in national meetings regarding his technique. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,000 lower face and neck lifts using local anesthesia and twilight sedation without the need for general anesthesia. He has been voted “Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County” by OC registrar two years in a row.
That is why after their natural facelift, patients report being repeatedly told that they “look amazing” even though nobody guessed they’d had a facelift or neck lift. Instead, patients were asked if they had lost weight, gotten a new haircut or taken a relaxing vacation. They looked refreshed and more youthful! Their face look 10-15 years younger, yet their neck will look 20-30 years younger.
Natural Facelift vs. Traditional Facelift
A traditional facelift is an invasive surgical procedure that requires a long incision. This incision begins near the temples, continues around the ear, and ends near the lower scalp. Traditional facelifts are performed under general anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Compared to the natural facelift, traditional facelifts are associated with increased complications, a longer recovery period and less natural results (such as a pulled look around the mouth or tissue bunching at the hairline).
Unlike traditional facelifts, the natural facelift doesn’t require general anesthesia. It is performed under local anesthesia with twilight sedation to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety. During the procedure, Dr. Sadati applies gradual muscle tightening to the patient’s face and increase tightening on the neck tissue. The face will look refreshed without over tightening while the neck tissue become smooth and tight. This will resulting in a smooth and rejuvenated appearance without causing a “pulled back” artificial effect.
Another benefit of the natural facelift is that, because it is minimally invasive, there is no chance of cutting the deep connective tissue known as the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS). This decreases the risk of facial nerve damage that can occur with traditional facelifts. Instead, Dr. Sadati will tighten the SMAS in two layers to insure longevity and natural looking results to create long lasting results while reducing risks and complications associated with traditional facelift.
Patients who are reluctant to have a facelift may elect to have a neck lift. This procedure results in a smoother jaw line and a more youthful appearance of the neck. Many of our neck lift patients report that they have returned to wearing necklaces because they are no longer self-conscious about the sagging skin on their necks.
A relatively quick procedure, the natural facelift takes approximately two hours to complete. There is minimal downtime and a quick recovery period, with most patients resuming their normal activities within seven to ten days.
Candidates for a Natural Facelift
You are a natural facelift candidate if you are willing to travel to our Orange County office and believe that you look older than you feel. The ideal candidate for a face and neck lift will have good skin elasticity, a strong bone structure and be in good health. You may not be suitable for this procedure if you suffer from certain medical conditions. If you do smoke, you’ll be asked to stop for at least three weeks before and after the procedure, as smoking can delay the healing process.
Most of our patients start considering lower face and neck lifts in their 40’s and 50’s. Not only is this a time when the signs of aging become more evident, it’s also a new start for many individuals who have been more focused on their families than on their own needs. Choosing a facelift or neck lift is a way to invest in yourself and move confidently forward into an exciting new chapter of your life.

During your consultation, you’ll discuss your goals for your facelift or neck lift as well as your medical history (including previous facial surgeries). Dr. Sadati will look at your facial anatomy and at the quality of your skin.

Safe Facelift Surgery with Minimal Downtime
Although patients appreciate that a natural facelift does not require a general anesthetic, they are understandably worried about being in pain. Dr. Sadati goes to great lengths to create a calm and comforting atmosphere, which alleviates much of the patients’ stress. He will not start the numbing process until the patient is completely relaxed and sleeping by medications such as Valium and Benadryl. This numbness last about 9 hours, while the procedure only takes about two hours to complete. Therefore, there is no immediate post op pain which requires heavy narcotic. Patient take Tylenol extra strength or small dose of pain meds hours after the surgery. There is no nausea and vomiting associated with this procedure since it is not performed under general anesthesia.
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. At this point the patients are so relaxed that they close their eyes and drift off to sleep.
Dr. Sadati’s injection technique is a key component of patient comfort. He uses a very small needle and a gentle touch, in addition to a mild mixture of anesthetic, to minimize any burning sensation. The nerve blocking technique last over nine hours therefore eliminating the need for strong narcotics for pain management.
During the surgery, Dr. Sadati will employ a double layered muscle-tightening (plication) technique. This applies gradual tension to facial muscles in many directions. This results in less pulling on the corners of the mouth and more tightening on the jaw, which creates to the natural results of the facelift. At the same time there will maximum tightening of neck tissue resulting in smooth and younger looking neck.
After the procedure is completed, a gauze bandage dressing is applied. Patients may experience feelings of pulling and tightness. These are indications of a successful procedure and signal the path to facelift recovery in Orange County.
A natural facelift generally takes about two hours. Time estimates are reviewed during the consultation so that patients knows what to expect.

Recovering from a Natural Facelift
With a local anesthetic, you will not experience after-effects such as nausea or grogginess. Instead, when your facelift is finished, you’ll be encouraged to sit up and then walk around. We offer refreshments and beverages that include filtered water and a nutritious anti-oxidant drink. As a precaution, your vital signs will be closely monitored and you’ll be discharged only after a thorough post-op review.
After the procedure, patients who have had a previous facelift or neck lift under general anesthesia usually comment that they prefer the local anesthesia option.
You will likely experience some slight tightness around the ears and jaw line on the first night after surgery. Any discomfort can be effectively managed with Tylenol. We will also provide you with prescription pain medication in case it’s needed. In our experience, most patients are delighted with the ease and comfort of the procedure.
Customer service is a key component of our practice, and Dr. Sadati will personally call you to follow up after your surgery. You will be given Dr. Sadati’s 24 hour contact number in case you need assistance outside of business hours.
The day after your facelift or neck lift, you will return to our Orange County office to have your dressing removed. You’ll be instructed to wear a light elastic wrap (provided by our office) for seven nights. Any discoloration, swelling or tenderness around the incisions should subside within a week. Exterior sutures will be absorbed by your body.
Post-operative recovery is quick. Swelling can be minimized through the use of ice and by keeping the head slightly elevated position when sleeping. Dr. Kevin Sadati suggests using a homeopathic remedy called Arnica Montana to reduce inflammation and aid in your recovery.
Results can be seen immediately following surgery. The amount of recovery time varies depending on the person, but most patients report they are ready to resume their normal activities within a week.
