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 pure 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 advanced method of local anesthetics and oral sedation without the need for general anesthesia.

What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a combination of two procedures that are designed for countering the neck to its youthful shape. Dr. Sadati performs his neck lift in his Newport Beach office without the need for general anesthesia as an out patient procedure. Initially, the neck muscles in the midline of neck that appear as two parallel bands are tightened. Then, the excess skin is trimmed. Incision lines are hidden behind the ears. Our patients are able to get a natural and long lasting results with about one hour of procedure time. As one of the most popular neck plastic surgery procedures available, the recovery is typically quick and easy, allowing patients to get on with their lives again.
What is the Neck Liposuction Procedure?
A liposuction procedure is not just for the abdominal area of the body. In fact, most areas can benefit from liposuction, and the neck is no different. Neck liposuction is one of the most effective neck cosmetic procedures for getting rid of excess fat in the neck region. Neck liposuction will allow individuals in Orange County to look and feel younger again. With local anesthesia, tiny incision is made and the fat is suctioned using fine instruments. There is minimal discomfort, with mild swelling, and bruising that resolve within one week.
What is a Lower Face and Neck Lift?
Some of the first things that individuals in Newport Beach 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, 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 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 is eliminated.
What is a Non Surgical Laser Neck Lift?
Not everyone who walks into our Newport Beach office is a candidate for surgical neck lift. For younger patients with early signs of aging neck, we offer the latest in fractionated Co2 laser 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.

Best Neck lift in Orange County
Whether you’re in your forties or in your seventies, you want to look and feel young. However it can be hard to feel youthful when you’re self-conscious about your “turkey wattle,” double chin or jowl lines. Since looking our best is an important part of self-esteem, the changes associated with aging can be distressing and depressing.
For patients in their 40’s through 70’s, a neck lift — technically known as a “lower rhytidectomy” — can help you “turn back the clock” and appear more youthful, rested and confident.
If performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon, a neck lift can eliminate fatty deposits and jowls, remove loose skin, and get rid of the muscle banding on your neck. The result is a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance that can make your neck look 20 to 30 years younger.

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.

The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for a neck lift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sadati in our Orange County office.
Preparing for your Neck Lift in Orange County
Unlike many surgeons, Dr. Sadati takes time to get to know his patients. You will have an extensive consultation. During your consultation, you’ll discuss your goals for your 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.
Dr. Sadati believes in patient education. He will advise you honestly about whether a neck lift will meet your aesthetic goals. He may tell you that another procedure (or combination of procedures) would best meet your needs. He will discuss the procedure(s) with you in detail and answer all of your questions. You will leave the consultation knowing that Dr. Sadati cares about you and wants the best results possible from your neck lift. As an artist and surgeon he will customized the best plan for you to obtain a natural and long lasting results with minimal discomfort and complications.
Safe, Comfortable Neck Lift Surgery with Minimal Downtime
Although patients appreciate that a neck lift does not require a general anesthetic, they are understandably worried about the experience. 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.
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. He blocks all the sensory nerves of the face and neck so the numbness will last over nine hours, but the procedure only takes about two hours to perform. Therefore, there is minimal discomfort post operation not requiring narcotic for pain management.
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.
Once you are comfortable, Dr. Sadati begins your neck lift by making a small incision around 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 procedures 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.
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). Time estimates are reviewed during the consultation so that you know the length of your surgery.
Your neck lift surgery will be performed in our beautiful Newport Beach office in Orange County, California.
Recovering from a Neck Lift
With a local anesthetic, you will not experience any unpleasant surgical after-effects such as nausea or grogginess. Instead, when your neck lift is finished, you’ll be encouraged to sit up and then walk around. We offer refreshments and beverages that include fresh fruits smoothies 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 previous cosmetic surgery 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 their neck lift.
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 neck lift, you will return to our Orange County office to have your dressing removed. You’ll be instructed to wear a light compression bandage (provided by our office) for three days to help your skin adhere to the underlying tissues. Once the compression bandage is removed, you will need to gently massage the area and apply warm compresses. Any discoloration, swelling or tenderness around the incisions should subside within a week. Exterior dissolvable sutures will be absorbed by your body.
Post-operative recovery is quick. Post-surgical 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.
Your scars will be well-hidden along your hairline. You must follow Dr. Sadati’s instructions for two months in order for the incision lines to become inconspicuous. We advise all patients who’ve had facelift surgery to avoid the sun as much as possible and to wear sunscreen when going outdoors.
