Some people find themselves in a quandary as they start to age. Many people are not in love with their appearance anymore as gravity has taken its toll and sagging skin makes them appear older. However, these same people do not necessarily want to undergo a traditional facelift procedure in order to look younger. Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon who practices out of Newport Beach, recognized this trend among his Orange County patients. He found his patients were looking for more natural options, and so he took the time to pioneer a revolutionary fat grafting procedure.
Fat grafting is the process by which the surgeon removes fatty tissue from other areas of the body where excess fat is present. For instance, many people have fat removed from the thighs, stomach and buttocks. This fatty tissue is then transplanted to the face, where it fills out hollow cheeks and drooping eyelids. It’s a win-win for patients as the face looks full of youth and vitality once again and fat has been removed from other areas where it was not wanted.
This procedure has been known to address problem areas, including drooping eyelids, hollow cheeks and jowls, wrinkles and slim lips among other issues. Patients rest easy knowing that the graft uses tissues that are natural to their own body, and Dr. Sadati ensures the grafts success by utilizing Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP is created from a patient’s own growth factors and blood stream, so it is another part of this procedure that is not foreign to the body. The PRP is injected into the fatty tissue before it is grafted into the face. The PRP ensures the grafts success and the health of the patient. It is known to, not only, improve results, but also make them last longer and provide the patient with a quicker recovery time.
This is a procedure that is being talked about all over Orange County because it is one of the best, longest lasting, natural alternatives to the traditional facelift procedure.
