There are many reasons that people who have had facelift procedures in the past find themselves considering a surgery to touch up issues that have cropped up over time. For starters, a traditional lift is expected to last for 8-10 years. At that time, patients can opt to have another lift done or might decide to let the natural aging process continue.
However, for other people, a first lift was done improperly or was done with mistakes, and they did not get the results that they want. For residents of Costa Mesa, there is hope. A revision facelift procedure can be performed by Dr. Kevin Sadati, one of the most sought after facial plastic surgeons in California.
Dr. Sadati has a low revision rate for his own traditional lifts, and he knows the challenges he faces when working on a revision procedure.
Despite knowing it’s an uphill battle, there is no case that he deems to difficult for him to take on. He attempts to use previous incision lines to map out his surgical plan, so as to keep scarring on the face to a minimum for the patient. While he is willing to stand up to the challenge of any revision surgery, he notes that it is extremely important that patients recognize that they must have realistic expectations of the results.
The ideal candidate for this procedure is in their late 40s to early 70s, and is in good enough mental and physical health to withstand not only the surgery itself but also the recovery period. The severity of the case will determine how long a particular patient’s recovery will be. To find out what will be involved in your own revision surgery, call for a free consultation with Dr. Sadati. It’s the first step toward fixing the issue and becoming a better you.
