Not everyone who wants to look younger wants to undergo a complete plastic surgery procedure that comes with a lengthy recovery process. For people who look to reduce the wrinkles on their face and bring life back to their cheeks, there are options besides a traditional facelift procedure.
In Newport Beach, the liquid facelift has been increasing in popularity in recent years, as it provides the perfect alternative for patients looking for one. This procedure involves injecting liquid fillers into a person’s face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon, has been performing this procedure for years on patients. It is a relatively quick option, and most patients can immediately return to their normal activities. It is important to recognize that there may be some swelling, certain precautions must be taken. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for several days, and alcohol consumption should be avoided until the swelling subsides.
For pain management, Dr. Sadati often recommends acetaminophen products and warns patients to avoid anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen.
Patients that look into this procedure should be aware that it does not produce the same results as a traditional facelift operation does. It will not alter the anatomy of a person’s face, simply hide fine lines and wrinkles through the use of injectable fillers. This procedure can be repeated as necessary, but patients should not expect results to last a decade like the results of a traditional facelift do.
