Onward and Upward For A Natural, Youthful Look

With recent innovations and advancements in surgical methods and technology, there are many ways you can choose to rejuvenate your facial appearance. But what technique can address multiple concerns and last? Correcting sagging skin in the neck and face, volume loss, and wrinkles can all be achieved in one procedure with an incredibly natural-looking result via our Newport Beach vertical facelift.

What is a Vertical Facelift?

As we get older, it's common to observe sagging of the soft tissues in the neck and face, leading to a shift from a heart-shaped face to a more square shape. One of the most recent developments that has been growing in popularity is the Vertical Facelift. This innovative procedure tackles both the sagging of the soft tissues, and the loss of volume in the lower, middle, and upper face and neck, combining them into a single, comprehensive treatment.

The vertical facelift takes a standard deep plane facelift and gives it an upgrade by modifying the technique and incorporating additional enhancements, including temporal brow lift and fat grafting, to restore volume in areas prone to aging-related volume loss.

This combination approach allows for the creation of a heart-shaped face by releasing the deep ligaments and lifting the deep tissue of the neck, face, and brow in one unit. Traditional facelift procedures primarily focus on lifting the skin without addressing the deep retaining ligaments. This often results in a less natural-looking outcome and can lead to visible scarring. On the other hand, the vertical facelift approach addresses both the superficial and deep layers of the face, resulting in a more harmonious and natural rejuvenation. The deep plane facelift technique, which forms the foundation of the vertical facelift, has been considered the gold standard in restoring a youthful and natural appearance of the face.

What can a Vertical Facelift do for me?

Enjoy your face with years taken off, and love what you see in the mirror every morning. A vertical facelift can give you:

  • A youthful, refreshed appearance
  • Natural-looking, not “overdone” results
  • Tighter face and neck
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal scarring

Complementary Procedures

This procedure is effective and comprehensive because it doesn’t just address the tightening of the mid-face. With the addition of fat grafting for volume loss and a brow lift, the vertical facelift can provide full rejuvenation.

Am I a candidate for a Vertical Facelift?

Most vertical facelift candidates are in their 40s to 60s and are experiencing moderate to severe skin laxity in both the face and neck.

Typically, ideal candidates are in generally good health, at or close to their goal weight, and have realistic expectations for the outcome.

Consultation and Preparation

During a consultation for your Vertical Facelift Newport Beach facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Sadati, will take the time to get to know you and your aesthetic goals to determine if a vertical facelift is the optimal procedure for your unique needs.

He and his team are prepared to answer any questions and cover any concerns to ensure that you are well-informed and confident in the process. We will also provide detailed information on preparation for surgery and recovery.


Typically, twilight sedation is used for the vertical facelift procedure along with local nerve blocks.

Once you are fully sedated and numb, precise incisions are made at the hairline and near the ears. Then, the SMAS, ligaments, and platysma muscles are accessed via these incisions, adjusted and lifted vertically, and finally, the incisions are closed.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After your surgery, your face will be bandaged, and you will experience some swelling.

Following all of Dr. Sadati’s instructions for post-care will help to ensure successful healing and an easy recovery. Most patients are able to return to normal activities after about ten to 14 days, but residual swelling often takes a few months to completely resolve, and final results are typically seen within nine months to one year.
