There is pressure to be forever young in our society. One of the first things that can give away your age is your skin, especially the skin around your face and neck. While you cannot turn back the clock, but there is a way to reclaim your youthful look!
Many people in Orange County are finding they can look and feel younger with simple cosmetic surgeries like a lower facelift and neck lift from Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery in Newport Beach.
A New, Younger-Looking You
Not all patients will need a traditional facelift. Many people in Newport Beach who are in their early-middle ages stand to benefit from a more targeted approach that our physician, Dr. Kevin Sadati, helped pioneer. During a lower facelift and neck lift, the surgeon:
- Uses local anesthesia and twilight sedation
- Removes excess skin along your cheeks, jowls and neckline
- Tightens your facial muscles in these areas
Dr. Sadati uses a technique called the Double C Plication, which gives you natural-looking results that will last for years to come. This method is much less invasive than traditional facelift, which means you have a shorter recovery time.
Is It Right For Me?
These cosmetic surgeries are ideal for people who are just entering middle age and are starting to show some signs of aging. Before having the procedure, you will meet with Dr. Sadati to make sure that not only are you a good candidate, but that this will be the best way to help you look and feel great. Typically, patients who are eligible for this surgery:
- Are in good physical health
- Are in good mental health
- Have excess skin in the lower part of their face
- Have excess skin around the neckline
- Have sagging skin around the cheeks
There may be other factors that you and Dr. Sadati will discuss before moving forward with the surgery.
For the past several years, Dr. Sadati’s practice has been evolved and focused on minimally invasive facial procedures using local anesthesia and oral sedation. One of the most specialized and successful areas of his practice has been dedicated to performing lower facelifts using local anesthesia and oral sedation, without the need for general anesthesia. This less aggressive approach to surgery and anesthesia has paralleled the new trends in patients request for a durable, natural-looking lift, with a quick recovery without needing to go under general anesthesia. After performing several thousands of facelifts, he has developed and pioneered a breakthrough facial muscle tightening technique that is considered the next generation of high definition facial rejuvenation using only local anesthesia and oral sedation. Dr. Sadati has been invited to premier plastic surgery conventions, including the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and American College of Osteopathic Otolaryngology & Facial Plastic Surgery. At these educational conventions, other plastic surgeons on his revolutionary face lift technique. He is often asked to lecture on his renowned facelift technique to other facelift surgeons.
Am I A Good Candidate For a Facelift With Local Anesthesia?
We found facelifts done with local anesthesia to be very safe, effective, and comfortable for our patients. When used on the right patient for the right procedure, it does not compromise patient safety or the quality of the result. It should be emphasized that a facelift under local anesthesia is not for everyone. Patients who require having simultaneous forehead lift surgery or having certain medical conditions may benefit from general anesthesia. Similar to the selection of procedures, the type of anesthesia that is best suited for patients are recommended during our thorough consultation.
Good candidates for a face lift done with local anesthesia:
- Patients who are afraid of general anesthesia and its potential complications.
- Patients concern with high cost of general anesthesia and its recovery.
- Patients who had bad experience with side effects of general anesthesia.
- Patients who are able to lay flat on their back for two hours
- Patients who don’t have allergic reaction to Lidocaine nor Epinephrine.
- Patients who do not have complicated heart or lung conditions
