We are all aware that as we age, certain changes occur due to biological and genetic factors that cannot be denied. Our skin starts to droop, sag and gravity takes its toll on our once youthful face, lips and neck. Quite simply, we no longer look the way we did in our 20’s and 30’s. However do not despair, there’s hope and the natural face and neck lift can help to restore your youthful look.
If you feel you need or want a facelift, seek an experienced facelift surgeon. Some key factors to keep in mind as you research different cosmetic surgeons to find the right facial plastic surgeon:
- First, be sure that the surgeon is board certified, experienced, and specializes in facial plastic surgery.
- It’s important that you are comfortable with the surgeon, and that he or she addresses all of your concerns and cares about your health. Ask yourself, is the surgeon only about the money or are they genuinely concerned about your results?
- Find Testimonials: Try to find someone who has had a facelift with the surgeon you are going to use. If you do not know of someone, ask the surgeon’s staff to provide you with a previous patient that you can speak with. Feel free to ask questions about their over-all experience with the procedure, the surgeon and his staff.
It’s important that you feel good about who is going to do your cosmetic surgery; after all, it’s your face, and you want to have the best possible results.

Natural Facelift Procedure From Orange County Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati
Dr. Kevin Sadati developed a breakthrough facial muscle tightening technique called the “Double C” Plication, which had a profound impact on the medical community. His “Double C” Plication technique applies a uniform tension on the facial muscles to create a smooth and natural look. Most often with a traditional facelift, a patient will not look like themselves afterwards, and people notice that. The Natural lift will not give you a pulled look on the mouth, nor will there be any tissue bunching at the hairline. This procedure will provide an excellent lift for the jowl and neck area. This lower lift will improve any kind of neck issues: from a neck with minimal laxity, to the heaviest and most difficult neck. This technique provides a durable, natural-looking lift with a relatively easy and quick recovery. Most importantly, this procedure is done under local anesthesia and oral sedation.
In March of 2011 the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery published Dr. Kevin Sadati’s research paper. This proprietary facelift technique was surveyed in 1,535 cases over a three year period. What Dr. Kevin Sadati found was that the revision rate (the need for a second, corrective procedure) on average was less than 1 percent. Dr. Kevin Sadati has been invited to many prestigious plastic surgery conventions to present his revolutionary facial rejuvenation technique to other facial plastic surgeons. He performs facial procedures at his Newport Beach office, making him one of the foremost plastic surgery specialists performing facelifts in California.
Patients of Dr. Sadati describe the positive responses they get from family, friends and co-workers, who tell them constantly that they “look so amazing!” They cannot figure out if they have lost weight, gotten a new haircut or taken a relaxing vacation; all they know is that they see a refreshed and naturally looking younger you!
While this technique can help counteract most of your facial sagging, and give you a more rested and youthful appearance, it will not change you. This lift will melt years off your face – making you look the way you did 10 to 15 years ago. The great news is that you will feel and look on the outside just like you have always felt on the inside – younger and more alive!
General Recovery Information after Your Facelift
Post-operative recovery is quick, and any first day discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Any swelling or tenderness around the incision areas usually subsides during the first week after the procedure. Swelling can be minimized by icing and keeping the head in a slightly elevated position when sleeping. Dr. Kevin Sadati even suggests the use of Arnica Montana to aid in recovery. Used medically for years for its anti-inflammatory effects.
Post surgery patients are advised to avoid the sun as much as possible and to wear sunscreen when going out doors. Results can be seen immediately following surgery; however, most patients feel they are ready to face the world within 7 days. The amount of recovery time varies depending on the person, but most patients report they are back to work within one week’s time and are ready to resume their normal activities.
