Male Facelifts in Orange County
For men who live in Orange County, the signs of aging can be distressing. Creases appear on the forehead, beside the eyes, and around the mouth. Formerly strong jaw lines soften into a double chin or jowls. And previously smooth neck skin loosens to create an unflatteringly “turkey neck.” Since looking our best is an important part of self-esteem, these changes can erode a man’s self-confidence in both personal and business situations.
As aging takes a toll on their face and neck, men in Orange County are turning to Dr. Kevin Sadati, to help them look younger and feel better about themselves. Dr. Kevin Sadati, an expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, developed the Double C Plication technique (AKA Natural Lift) in response to patient requests for a discreet, natural look for their face and neck. Patients told Dr. Sadati that they wanted to “look more youthful, but not like we’d had work done.”
Dr. Sadati’s unique facial muscle tightening technique has been published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. He has given numerous presentations in national meetings regarding his technique. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,000 lower face and neck lifts. He has been voted “Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County” by the OC Register two years in a row. He was awarded “the best facial make over award in 2016” by The Aesthetic Academy for his unique face and neck lift technique.
Unlike other surgeons, Dr. Sadati’s innovative techniques don’t require general anesthesia. The neck lift is performed under local anesthesia with twilight sedation to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety. Therefore eliminating the risks associated with general anesthesia such as nausea and vomiting, blood clotting in the legs, or post operative pain. He blocks all the facial sensory nerves so there is no pain during the surgery and minimal discomfort after surgery. During the procedure, Dr. Sadati applies gradual muscle tightening to the lower face and neck tissue, resulting in a smooth and rejuvenated appearance with long lasting results.
This lower face and neck lift can take up to ten years off a man’s face and neck. If done earlier in life — during a man’s 40’s and 50’s, the impact will be subtle. If a lower face and neck lift is performed later – during a man’s 60’s or 70’s — it will be a dramatic life change. Dr. Sadati will advise you honestly about whether a facial rejuvenation is your best option or if another procedure would better meet your needs.
Male Facelift/Neck lift Specialist in Orange County
While the surgical techniques used in a facial rejuvenation vary little between men and women, men’s goals and anatomy are different. Men want to ensure that their face looks natural and masculine, rather than appearing altered or feminized.
Men also want to minimize visible scarring. The surgeon must skillfully hide incisions to accommodate short haircuts, receding hairlines and baldness.
Another unique concern for male patients is facial hair. The thickness, color and location of hair follicles must be factored into the surgery. Additionally, the surgeon must choose incision locations that will not impair the ability to shave.
To support the growth of facial hair, men have more facial blood vessels than women. This increases the chance of bleeding and bruising. In addition, surgery can take longer because men have larger faces, heavier necks, and stronger ligament supports. These anatomical differences can make the male facelift more challenging and requires the talent of an experienced surgeon.
Finally, patients choosing to have a male facelift have different emotional needs than women. Men are not used to altering their appearance, so need to have realistic expectations for the surgery. Men also tend to be much more private about their decision to have a facelift, so will want to choose a surgeon who accommodates their need for discretion.
Candidates for a Male Facelift
You are a facelift candidate if you are willing to travel to our Orange County office and believe that you look older than you feel. Ideal male candidates have good skin elasticity, a strong bone structure and are in good health. You may not be suitable for a facelift if you suffer from certain medical conditions. If you do smoke, you’ll be asked to stop for at least three weeks before and after your facelift, as smoking can delay the healing process.
Most men start considering a facelift in their 40’s and 50’s. Not only is this a time when the signs of aging become more evident, it’s also a new start for many men who have neglected their own needs. Choosing a facelift is a way to invest in yourself and move confidently forward in your business and personal life.
The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for a facelift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sadati at our Orange County office.

Natural Male Facelift: A Refreshed, Younger Version of You!
Dr. Kevin Sadati, an expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, developed the Natural Facelift (technically known as the “Double C Plication technique”) in response patient requests for a discreet, natural facelift result. Patients told Dr. Sadati that they wanted to “look more youthful, but not like we’d had work done.” This motivated Dr. Sadati to develop the Natural Facelift — a unique facial muscle tightening surgery for facial rejuvenation.
A traditional facelift (old method of facial rejuvenation) is an invasive surgical procedure that requires a long incision. This incision begins near the temples, continues around the ear, and ends near the lower scalp. Traditional facelifts are performed under general anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Compared to the natural facelift, traditional facelifts are associated with increased complications, a longer recovery period and less natural results (such as a pulled look around the mouth or tissue bunching at the hairline).
Unlike traditional facelifts, the natural facelift doesn’t require general anesthesia. It is performed under local anesthesia with twilight sedation to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety. During the procedure, Dr. Sadati applies a light and gradual muscle tightening to the patient’s face while increase tightening on the neck tissue. Your face will look refreshed and natural; your neck tissue will become smooth and tight. The result is a rejuvenated appearance without looking “pulled back.”
Another benefit of the natural facelift is that, because it is minimally invasive, there is no chance of cutting the deep connective tissue known as the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS). This decreases the risk of facial nerve damage that can occur with traditional facelifts. Instead, Dr. Sadati will tighten the SMAS in two layers to insure longevity and natural looking results to create long lasting results. With over 3000 facial rejuvenation procedures performed, Dr. Sadati reports zero nerve damage.
A Lower face and neck lift reduces the signs of aging on the jowls and the neck. Some male patients elect to just have a neck lift. A neck lift creates a smoother and a more youthful appearance of the neck without changing the jawlines. This is particularly beneficial for men who are happy with their facial features but self-conscious about the sagging skin on their necks.
A relatively quick procedure, the natural facelift takes approximately two hours to complete. There is minimal downtime and a quick recovery period, with most men resuming their normal activities within seven to ten days.
Male Facelift Surgery with Minimal Downtime
Although men appreciate that their facelift does not require a general anesthetic, they are understandably concerned about the procedure. Dr. Sadati goes to great lengths to create a calm and comforting atmosphere, which alleviates much of the patients’ stress. He will not start the numbing process until the patient is completely relaxed and sleepy.
All of Dr. Sadati’s surgical team are genuinely caring and sympathetic to his patients’ needs. The staff speaks softly and gently, which gives patients confidence during their procedure and contributes to a positive and reassuring experience. Frequently patients are so relaxed that they close their eyes and drift off to sleep.
Dr. Sadati’s injection technique is a key component of patient comfort. He uses a very small needle and a gentle touch. The nerve blocking technique lasts over nine hours, so strong narcotics are not needed for pain management. There is no nausea and vomiting associated with this procedure since it is not performed under general anesthesia.
During the surgery, Dr. Sadati will employ a double layered muscle-tightening (plication) technique. This applies gradual tension to facial muscles in many directions. This results in less pulling on the corners of the mouth and more tightening on the jaw, which contributes to the natural results of the facelift. At the same time there will maximum tightening of neck tissue, resulting in smooth and younger looking neck.
After the procedure is completed, a gauze bandage dressing is applied. Patients may experience feelings of pulling and tightness. These are indications of a successful face and neck lift and signal the path to recovery.
Your lower face and neck lift will be performed in our beautiful Newport Beach office in Orange County, California.
Recovering from a Male Facelift
With a local anesthetic, you will not experience any surgical after-effects such as nausea or grogginess. Instead, when your facelift is complete, you’ll be encouraged to sit up and then walk around. We offer refreshments and beverages that include fresh fruit smoothies. As a precaution, your vital signs will be closely monitored and you’ll be discharged only after a thorough post-op review.
You will likely experience some slight tightness around the ears and jaw line on the first night after surgery. Any discomfort can be effectively managed with Tylenol extra strength. We will also provide you with prescription pain medication in case it’s needed. In our experience, most patients are delighted with the ease and comfort of the procedure.
Customer service is a key component of our practice, and Dr. Sadati will personally call you to follow up after your surgery. You will be given Dr. Sadati’s 24 hour contact number in case you need assistance outside of business hours.
The day after your facelift, you will return to our Orange County office to have your dressing removed. You’ll be instructed to wear a light elastic wrap (provided by our office) for 48 hours. Any discoloration, swelling or tenderness around the incisions should subside within a week. Exterior sutures are dissolvable and will be absorbed by your body.
Post-operative recovery is quick. Swelling can be minimized through the use of ice and by keeping your head in a slightly elevated position when sleeping. Dr. Kevin Sadati suggests using a homeopathic remedy called Arnica Montana to reduce inflammation and aid in your recovery.
Results can be seen immediately following surgery. The amount of recovery time varies depending on the person, however most men report they are ready to resume their normal activities within a week.
Dr. Sadati will give you specific instructions about shaving. He recommends growing your facial hair for two weeks, then when you shave the incision lines are fully healed and the is no sign of surgery. Many men say after two weeks, people comment that you look much younger with your beard shaved. We advise all patients who’ve had facelift surgery to avoid the sun as much as possible and to wear sunscreen when going outdoors.
