For some patients, the initial signs of aging happen earlier than others. These patients might not be interested in undergoing a traditional facelift procedure, but they might still be interested in looking younger. Other patients simply do not like the idea of having major surgery, but they still want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on their face. For patients who are looking for alternative options to the traditional facelift procedure, Dr. Kevin Sadati offers the liquid facelift. As a board certified facial plastic surgeon who practices out of Newport Beach, Dr. Sadati is happy to provide this alternative to Orange County residents.
The liquid facelift procedure involves the surgeon injecting dermal-fillers into a person’s face. This often occurs in the region of the cheeks and around the eyes, as the goal is to fill out hallowed areas on the face. By placing these injectable fillers into the facial tissue the skin is stretched and fills out once again. This produces healthy-looking, natural results that minimize the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles at the same time.
This has long been a popular procedure, and Dr. Sadati has nearly a decade of experience in working with these injectable fillers. It is a quick, easy and relatively painless way to get instant results. Patients leave the office looking younger and feeling better about themselves. It is important to note, though, that while these results are instant they do not last as long as those of a traditional cosmetic facelift. As the physiological features of the face are not altered, the results will not be permanent. The best way to explain it is that this procedure provides patients with a bit of relief from the aging process, but it does not stop aging from continuing to occur.
However, some patients do not mind this fact as they can continue to have this procedure repeated as many times as they desire. Most patients end up coming back to Dr. Sadati within 6 to 9 months to have this procedure done once again. Each time, they leave looking refreshed, revitalized and younger than they did before the liquid lift. To find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure, set up a free consultation appointment with Dr. Sadati; you can discuss this procedure as well as other more traditional surgical options in order to decide which will be best for you. This is a great alternative procedure, providing patients with a unique opportunity to look great without facing a significant recovery period after the procedure.
