What is the Best Age for a Facelift?


As we age, we will notice certain changes to our appearance. These changes are heavily influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Skin begins to droop and sag, causing our once youthful neck, lips and face to appear older. Though aging is inevitable, there are many cosmetic surgery options that can give you a more youthful and natural look. One of the most popular options is a facelift. Rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is a surgical procedure that improves the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It can be used to reduce:

  • Sagging in the face
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose which extend to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or disappeared
  • Loss of skin tone and elasticity which results in “jowls”
Typically, ideal candidates are between the ages of 45 and 75. If you have noticed any of the above issues, which have caused your face to appear less youthful, a facelift may be the right option for you.

Dr. Kevin Sadati’s Natural-Looking Lower Face and Neck Lift Procedure

Dr. Kevin Sadati, a renowned Newport Beach facelift surgeon, has developed a breakthrough facial muscle tightening technique called the “Double C” Plication. This special technique has had a profound impact on the medical community after being published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. This technique applies a uniform tension on the facial muscles creating a smooth and natural look to the face. One major complaint about traditional facelift procedures is that patients do not “look like themselves” afterwards. With Dr. Sadati’s natural lift, you will not have skin pulled too tightly around the mouth or bunched at the hairline. Rather, the procedure provides lifting for the jowl and neck, offering a durable, long lasting and natural-looking lift. In addition to offering better results, this procedure is relatively easy and offers a quick facelift recovery. It is performed in his clinical facility using local anesthesia and twilight sedation as opposed to general anesthesia. Local anesthesia does not render the patient unconscious and is considered a safer and less costly option.

A facelift can be paired with other popular facial surgeries, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), chin and cheek augmentations, fat grafting, neck liposuction or brow and forehead lifts. If you are concerned that you have lost your youthful appearance due to natural aging, consider Dr. Sadati’s natural facelift procedure. Schedule an appointment today to discuss your concerns with Dr. Sadati and learn how this unique and advanced procedure can offer you a more youthful look.
