Should I do a liquid or surgical facelift?
While younger patients, typically, turn to cosmetic injectables like BOTOX® or dermal fillers to delay the aging process, facelift surgery addresses structural issues associated with getting older, like sagging muscles or connective tissue, and loose skin. Injectable treatments are designed to handle more superficial signs of age, such as deflated skin in the cheeks, wrinkles, or fine lines around the eyes or mouth. Facelift procedures are intended to provide a more profound intervention, allowing expert plastic surgeons like Dr. Sadati to access underlying tissues and muscles to achieve more long-term results. Patients can consider injectable treatments to complement their facelift surgery, which often produces an enhanced outcome.
Do facelifts ever look natural?
Numerous facelift techniques can be customized to fit each person's aesthetic needs. Everyone ages at their own pace and has their own unique facial features. Dr. Sadati will access and examine each patient's facial anatomy and address their concerns during a thorough consultation. With each facelift procedure, he will reposition the underlying connective tissue (SMAS), muscle, and fat to restore facial tissues without "overstretching" the overlying skin. He will determine which facelift technique will provide optimal, natural-looking results. So, what types of facelifts are there?
A traditional facelift is more invasive, requires a longer recovery, and is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Dr. Sadati also offers a natural facelift technique at his premier facility in Newport Beach, CA. This is a revolutionary procedure that Dr. Sadati has pioneered for patients wanting to look younger with more natural-looking results. Unlike traditional facelifts, it is performed while the patient is under local anesthesia with twilight sedation and is less invasive. The deep connective tissue is still tightened with the natural facelift technique. However, Dr. Sadati performs the process in two layers to ensure long-term, natural-looking results. It is a relatively quick procedure when compared to traditional facelift surgery and requires minimal downtime, with most patients back to their daily routine within 7 – 10 days.
How long do facelift results last?
A facelift can be a powerful cosmetic tool in the battle against aging skin. Ideal candidates are healthy, nonsmoking adults that have realistic expectations. The primary goal for any facelift technique is to remove sagging, loose skin, and reposition the underlying tissue and muscles, so patients look years younger. However, facelift results cannot stop the natural aging process. Most patients typically enjoy their new facelift results for about 10 – 15 years. With age, the facial skin may begin to droop or sag, creating a need for touch-up cosmetic procedures or injectables. Dr. Sadati will work closely with each patient to determine the right procedures or treatments down the road to smooth out wrinkles and eliminate those pesky signs of getting older, so you can continue to look and feel younger.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati has made several appearances on various media outlets across the United States as a surgical expert in his field.
