Many people in the Irvine area might assume that the only way to get rid of the wrinkles on their face and the sagging skin around their cheek is to undergo a complete traditional facelift procedure. There are many other options available, with one of the best alternatives being a liquid facelift. During this procedure, a surgeon injects liquid fillers into a person’s face in order to fill out the face once again. Up to 10 years can be removed from a person’s appearance by filling out the face.
Dr. Kevin Sadati is a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in this unique procedure. It is a popular choice for many patients largely because of the ease of the procedure and relatively quick recovery time. Within hours of completing the procedure, most patients are able to return to their normal activities. Dr. Sadati does warn patients that there might be some swelling initially and that acetaminophen can be taken to help patients manage their pain levels. It is important to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for several days after the liquid lift is performed.
For patients who want a boost in self confidence for an upcoming event, or are just showing the initial signs of aging, this is a great cosmetic procedure option.
However, patients should note that while results are similar initially to that of a traditional lift, they will not last as long. Within several years, many patients opt to have this procedure done once again to get their face back to its youth again. For more information on this procedure, set up a consultation with Dr. Sadati. Together you can decide if this is the right option for you, and what your next step should be.
