While you may be approaching your 40s or early 50s, chances are you still feel like you are in your thriving 30s. If you want your face to look as young as you feel, and you want people to be amazed when you tell them your actual age, then consider having a Long Beach traditional facelift performed.
As one of the easiest and best tolerated plastic surgery procedures, the facelift is a great way to take up to 10 years off of your face. It will tighten up the skin that is sagging around the neck and jowls, and remove wrinkles from the eye and nose area.It is important to note, however, that a facelift does not prevent a person from continuing to age.
The normal aging process will continue after the procedure is done, but overall you will have a younger appearance. And the best part is this procedure can be repeated every 8-10 years if you so choose.
Local anesthesia is used to numb the face, and patients who have a fear of needles can rest assured that Dr. Kevin Sadati takes every step necessary to make a patient calm and comfortable. Relaxation is an important part of this procedure and helps to ensure successful results.
The post operative period is also well tolerated by most patients. The average patient will see full results of the procedure within 4-7 days, and can usually return to work within a week of the procedure’s completion. Dr. Sadati typically prescribes oral medication to help relieve any discomfort or pain from the procedure. It is important though that all patients rest and take it easy — it is surgery after all. Sun exposure should be limited for several weeks, and patients should always wear sunscreen to protect their skin.
