Perhaps a patient has recently had a facelift done, and is disappointed with the pulled back look on their face. Another patient might be frustrated by the fact that residual jowls are beginning to form. And some patients who have had a traditional lift find that the laxity in their skin does not give them the youthful appearance that they had immediately following the surgery.
If you or a loved one feels frustrated or disappointed by the results of a traditional lift, know that there is still hope. In Newport Beach, Dr. Kevin Sadati performs dozens of revision facelift procedures, ranging from the very basic fixes to the most challenging surgeries.
For Dr. Sadati, there is no revision that is too challenging. However, it is important that patients know this is a risky surgery to undergo, and is more difficult than an original traditional facelift.
In order to complete this surgery successfully, Dr. Sadati often uses the scars from the original incision as a guideline. He works to mobile the deeper muscles in the face, which helps to create better results that will last longer than the original procedure.
The key to a successful revision procedure is good communication between the patient and the surgeon. The patient must be completely open and honest about what they disliked about the original procedure and what results they are looking for moving forward. Dr. Sadati stresses that patients must have realistic expectations, and he will then proceed to explain what options a particular patient has.
It is important to note that every patient is unique and every revision is unique. For more information and to discuss your particular plan, set up a consultation with Dr. Sadati. His own revision rate is very low, and he will be able to help you decide what your next step should be.
