Many patients ask me “Should I lose weight before a facelift?” Maintaining a stable weight is best for most cosmetic surgeries including facelifts. In general, it is best to be at your stable long term weight to reduce the probability for revision surgery. It makes little or no sense to loose or gain weight for a surgical procedure including Facelift unless you can maintain that weight for many years or it is a relatively small amount (plus or minus 5 pounds).
If it’s a matter of losing 10-20 pounds, it simply will not make any difference. Having the facelift performed in itself will make you look like you’ve lost weight. Losing an additional twenty pounds after the facelift should not cause it to sag. I say go for it now and enjoy the new you.

With Dr. Sadati’s natural lift, you will not have skin pulled too tightly around the mouth or bunched at the hairline. Rather, the procedure provides lifting for the jowl and neck, offering a durable, long lasting and natural-looking lift. In addition to offering better results, this procedure is relatively easy and offers a quick facelift recovery. It is performed in his clinical facility using local anesthesia and twilight sedation as opposed to general anesthesia.
