Your 50s should be a time of joy and accomplishment. By now, whether it is a career, a family, or a personal accomplishment, the seeds you have planted and nurtured throughout your life have hopefully blossomed into sources of great pride. They took years of hard work and toil, and now you get to enjoy what they have become - and you want to look your best to enjoy the memories you’re making. But all that effort has taken its toll - and our 50s are when the signs of aging really start to become apparent.
Crow’s feet, marionette lines, and facial sagging all deepen in the 50s. Temporary nonsurgical solutions that may have worked in the past become less effective. If you are at this point in your aging journey and want to refresh your look, Dr. Sadati recommends his “50s Facelift” - a personalized take on the SMAS facelift that is specifically designed to correct the areas of your face where aging is most apparent.
Dr. Sadati’s 50s Facelift is based on the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) facelift. When you look at your lower face, what you are seeing is the effect of gravity on a thin layer of fibrous tissue that covers your face and neck, which leads to saggy jowls, fat and loose skin beneath the chin, and hollow cheeks.
Dr. Sadati addresses these issues directly by repositioning and tightening the SMAS layer itself, as well as the skin above it. This results in younger, firmer skin without looking “overdone” or “tight.” It also comes with less scarring and recovery time, as it addresses the issues of the lower face directly. The 50s Facelift is one of Dr. Sadati’s specialties. With his targeted, personalized approach, he can revitalize your look so you truly enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Each 50s Facelift starts with a visit to see Dr. Sadati at his office in Newport Beach.
Dr. Sadati’s expertise and trained eye will help you come up with a customized plan for your look. In some cases, that may involve the 50s Facelift. In other cases, that may involve a selection of other treatments. Dr. Sadati believes your goals are as unique as your face, which is why he takes the time to find the right mix of treatments for you and never pushes you into a specific treatment that is unnecessary. If your treatment plan includes the 50s Facelift, Dr. Sadati will give you personalized directions on what to do to prepare for your procedure.
On surgery day, Dr. Sadati will meet with you again to mark your face and make sure there aren’t any last-minute changes to your surgery plan. Once you are prepped for surgery and placed under general anesthesia, Dr. Sadati will make several incisions along the hairline by the temple and behind the ears. This allows Dr. Sadati to lift and mold your tissue and muscle to a higher position, tightening the face and neck. Dr. Sadati takes great care to hide your incisions to make scarring almost impossible to detect once you heal. Following the procedure, Dr. Sadati will remove small amounts of excess skin and then suture you up with dissolvable stitches.
Because the 50s Facelift is performed under general anesthesia, you will need to have someone drive you home following your procedure. For the next few days, you will experience bruising, swelling, and some discomfort. This is normal, and most patients take a week off work to allow themselves to heal following a SMAS facelift. Over the next few weeks, your stitches will slowly be reabsorbed into your body and your swelling will go down. Dr. Sadati will give you personalized aftercare instructions to ensure that you have a speedy recovery. You should be ready to resume normal activity (including working out or other strenuous activities) after a few weeks of healing.
