As you enter your middle ages and beyond, the time has come for you to take a step back and focus on yourself once again. You are closer to the end of your career than the start of it. Your family is likely grown and out on their own. It's a unique time in your life, and you have the opportunity to take some time for yourself again. Perhaps consider investing in your own self confidence by having an Orange County traditional facelift performed.
This procedure is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures largely because of its simplicity and ease of the recovery. By removing excess skin around the neck and jowls, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and nose, the facelift procedure can take up to 10 years from the appearance of your face. While it will not stop the aging process from continuing, it can be done again 8-10 years later to help you appear younger once again. Typically, patients are between 40 and 70 years old and have a strong facial bone structure to help outline the surgery.
The surgery is performed using a local anesthetic and Dr. Kevin Sadati employs the top surgical teams in the area for his patients. They help his patients to feel calm and relaxed, and ensure a patient gets the results he or she is looking for. Recovery time lasts anywhere from 4-7 days, and most patients can rejoin the work force and enjoy their daily activities a week later. Oral pain medications are often prescribed to help with mild pain and discomfort, and patients are asked to limit their exposure to the sun. The freshly stretched skin is exceptionally vulnerable to sunburn, so it is important to wear sunscreen at all times.
