Instead of delaying treatment until her 50s or 60s, this
patient came to Dr. Sadati in her 40s to immediately address some of the signs
of aging that troubled her most. While most of her skin still appeared elastic
and resilient, the skin below her chin was beginning to soften and sag. She
didn’t like that her jaw was becoming more square, so she and Dr. Sadati
discussed doing a neck lift with liposuction followed by a facelift.
Like many patients, she had concerns about pain, scarring,
and down time. Dr. Sadati explained that the nerve block used during surgery
would equate to less pain afterwards. Plus, he talked her through the entire
process to help her understand the type of incisions he would make and how long
she could expect to be off work. Her surgery was successful and uneventful
thanks to local anesthesia with twilight sedation. These “after” shots were
taken 2 months post-surgery. You can see that her neck is much slimmer and
firmer; she now has a more rounded jawline that aligns with her face as a
whole, and her cheeks have a rejuvenated plumpness that was missing before.
