Nobody likes to look in the mirror and recognize the first signs of aging. It is only natural for the skin to lose its laxity over time, and for gravity to begin to take its toll, but that doesn’t mean a person has to settle for wrinkles on their face, drooping eyelids and sagging skin around the cheeks and jowls.
However, there are many patients that want to improve their looks and look younger at the same time, but aren’t interested in undergoing a major cosmetic surgery procedure. For those patients in Mission Viejo, the liquid facelift might be the option that they need.
As a board certified facial plastic surgeon with decades of experience, Dr. Kevin Sadati is highly skilled at performing this procedure on his patients. It is a quick process that involves injecting liquid fillers into a person’s face to help camouflage the appearance of wrinkles. It brings life back into a person’s face, and allows them to return to many of their daily activities immediately after leaving the office.
It is important to note that there might be some swelling associated with this procedure, and Dr. Sadati recommends that patients take acetaminophen for pain relief.
While this procedure will provide patients with a refreshing, youthful look on their face, it is important that all patients considering this option know the results will not last as long as the results of a traditional facelift. Most patients will have this procedure redone within a couple of years, as the aging process will continue and the physical features of the face have not been altered during surgery. Nevertheless, many patients prefer to have this procedure done several times rather than undergo plastic surgery. To find out if this is the right choice for you, set up a consultation today.
