Most patients begin to consider a facelift procedure about the time the aging process begins for them. Dr. Kevin Sadati recognizes that the aging process is difficult, but he feels it is important to confirm if a patient is a good candidate for this procedure before performing it at his Newport Beach practice. The facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery options in Orange County, largely due to the fact that it is a relatively easy surgery to complete, and the recovery process is not very difficult.
First and foremost, patients must be experiencing some signs of aging before they have this plastic surgery performed. The cheeks, jowls and skin around the neck will probably be sagging a little bit. Lines and wrinkles will have formed on the face. If you are experiencing these symptoms, then you are likely a good candidate for this surgery. In addition to having signs of aging, a patient should have a defined facial bone structure. This structure helps to provide a natural outline for the surgeon, allowing him to give the patient truly natural results. The goal is to have the patient walk out of the operating room looking like they did 10 years prior to the procedure.
The best candidates have a realistic expectation of surgical results. They know that they will look younger, but at the end of the day, this is nothing more than a surgery. It cannot change any aspect of a person’s life — that is up to the patient. Also, a good candidate is going to be physically fit and mentally well. This helps them endure the surgical process, have patience through the recovery and be proud of whom they are when the surgery is complete.
Patients who think that a facelift procedure is the perfect option for them should set up a free consultation appointment with Dr. Sadati. At this appointment, Dr. Sadati can assess the face and the point of the aging process that the patient is in at that time. Note that the facelift will not prevent aging from occurring throughout the future, and the patient will once again show signs of aging, in the years to come. Dr. Sadati is open and honest about the benefits of plastic surgery as he wants his patients to have a greater understanding before they head into the operating room.
