There are many great things that come with getting older, such as experience and wisdom. Many Orange County residents find that along with years of great memories comes another side effect: the unavoidable signs of aging.
Fortunately, Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery offers a number of solutions thanks to our world-class physician, Dr. Kevin Sadati. He developed the natural mini facelift, which takes years off your face and does wonders for your self-esteem. It is performed in our office without the need to go under general anesthesia. This mini facelift provides a quicker recovery with long lasting results.
A Natural Mini Facelift gives clients a more youthful appearance by fixing unavoidable early signs of aging.
Providing a long Lasting Solution
Patients in their 40-50’s come to our offices because they have concerns about sagging of jowls and neck area.
A natural mini facelift uses small incisions hidden around the ears to access the muscles of the face and neck. Then muscles are tightened in a natural way to avoid the “pulled” look. Then excess skin is gently trimmed. Additionally, Dr. Sadati will remove any excess fat before repositioning your skin. Through tightening and smoothing out wrinkles, you can look up to 10 years younger. Since the muscles are tightened in two layers, you can expect long lasting results. Dr. Sadati has published a well known article in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery explaining his facelift technique; he also lectures his method at the national meetings. The procedure is performed in our office using twilight sedation, without the need for general anesthesia.
A Mini Facelift For Men
One of the great things about mini facelifts is that both men and women alike can take advantage of this quick and relatively easy procedure. Patients will enjoy that:
- The surgery only lasts about 90 minutes
- You can go home the same day of your procedure
- There is only minimal scarring
- You can resume your regular routine within a week
Many men in Orange County find this is both a safe and effective way to feel younger. Dr. Sadati caters the procedure for his male patients, which means he will make incisions at different places to highlight how men’s faces are structured. The doctor will place skin sutures under the skin, which produces the best possible results for a man’s particular concerns. Male mini facelift is designed to maintain the masculine appearance.

Choosing to Have a Natural Mini Facelift in Orange County
Some of the most prominent signs of aging occur on our lower face and neck. Formerly strong jaw lines soften into a double chin or jowls. And previously smooth neck skin loosens to create what is unflatteringly known as a “turkey neck.” Since looking our best is an important part of self-esteem, these changes can be distressing – especially among residents of Orange County who want to look as young as they feel.
A Natural mini facelift addresses aging concerns on the lower face and neck. The cheeks, jowls and neck are lifted by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin. Renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati has developed a safe, revolutionary Natural Mini facelift procedure that provides superior, long- lasting results. The procedure takes about two hours and results in minimal scarring. Recovery is quick and results are long lasting. You can resume normal social activities within a week.
Natural Facelift: A Refreshed, Younger Version of You!
Dr. Kevin Sadati, an expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, developed the Natural Mini facelift (technically known as the “Double C Plication technique”) in response patient requests for a discreet, natural mini 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 Mini facelift– a unique facial muscle tightening surgery for facial rejuvenation.
For patients who do not need a full facelift, the Natural Mini facelift is a way to improve the visible signs of aging on the lower face and neck. It is particularly beneficial for patients in their 40’ and 50’s who feel that their lower face and neck is older than how they feel. A Natural Mini facelift can also be used as a secondary mini facelift to smooth out the signs of aging for patients who are not happy with their previous facelift.
Dr. Sadati’s Natural Mini facelift technique has been published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. He has given numerous presentations in national meetings regarding this technique. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,000 facelifts and neck lifts in his Orange County office.
Benefits of a Natural Mini Facelift
The Natural mini facelift is performed under local anesthesia with twilight sedation. Dr. Sadati addresses the cheeks, jowls and neck by removing excess tissue and applying gradual muscle tightening to the patient’s lower face and neck tissue. The face will look refreshed (but not “over tightened”) while the neck tissue becomes smooth and tight. This results in a smooth and rejuvenated appearance without causing a “pulled back” artificial effect. Many of our female patients report that they have returned to wearing necklaces because they are no longer self-conscious about the sagging skin on their necks. Male patients report smooth neck that looks good with or without tie.
Because the Natural Mini facelift 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 ensure long-lasting and natural-looking results.
A Natural Mini facelift takes about two hours to complete. There is minimal downtime and a quick recovery period, with most patients resuming their normal activities within a week. The procedure will erase 10 years of your face and the results last more than 10 years.
Candidates for a Natural Facelift
You are a Natural Mini facelift candidate if you are willing to travel to our Orange County office and believe that your chin and neck make you look older than you feel. The ideal candidate will have good skin elasticity, a strong bone structure and be in good health. You may not be suitable for a Natural Mini 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 the procedure, as smoking can delay the healing process.
The ideal age for a Natural Mini facelift is in your 40’s to 50’s. Not only is this a time when the signs of aging become more evident, it’s also a new start for many individuals who have been more focused on their families than on their own needs. Choosing a mini facelift or neck lift is a way to invest in yourself and move confidently forward into an exciting new chapter of your life.
The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for a Natural Mini facelift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sadati at our Orange County office.
Preparing for your Natural Mini Facelift in Orange County
Unlike many surgeons, Dr. Sadati takes time to get to know his patients. You will have an extensive consultation. During your consultation, you’ll discuss your goals for your Natural Mini facelift as well as your medical history (including previous facial surgeries). Dr. Sadati will look at your facial anatomy and at the quality of your skin.
He will advise you honestly about whether a Natural Mini facelift is your best option or if another procedure would better meet your needs. Dr. Sadati believes in patient education. He will discuss the process with you in detail and answer all of your questions. You will leave the consultation knowing that Dr. Sadati cares about you and wants the best results possible from your facial rejuvenation surgery.
Safe Mini Facelift Surgery with Minimal Downtime
Although patients appreciate that their Natural Mini facelift does not require a general anesthesia, 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 sleeping.
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 your facial muscles in various 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 lower facelift. At the same time there will maximum tightening of neck tissue, resulting in a 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 Natural Mini facelift and signal the path to recovery.
Your Natural Mini facelift will be performed in our beautiful Newport Beach office in Orange County, California.
Recovering from a Natural Mini Facelift
With a local anesthetic, you will not experience any surgical after-effects such as nausea or grogginess. Instead, when your Natural Mini facelift is complete, you’ll be encouraged to sit up and then walk around. We offer refreshments and beverages that include filtered water and a nutritious anti-oxidant drink. 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. 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 Natural 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, which are dissolvable, will be absorbed by your body.
Post-operative recovery is quick. Swelling can be minimized through the use of ice and by keeping the 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 with at least 10 years younger version of you. The amount of recovery time varies depending on the person, but most patients report they are ready to resume their normal activities within a week. The results will last more than 10 years.
We advise all patients who’ve had mini facelift surgery to avoid the sun as much as possible and to wear sunscreen when going outdoors.
