New Year resolution to a have a better looking face


Aging alters the body in many ways, but nowhere are these harsh realities as visible as on the face. Coupled with the sun’s damaging rays, the aging process coarsens the texture of the skin, diminishes its youthful layer of fatty tissue, and causes the angularity of the face to be lost. As the skin makes its downward descent off the cheeks, jaw, and neck, it pouches into unsightly bags and overhanging jowls. These outward signs often generate comments about tiredness and questions of sadness that really belie your inner vitality. These aging changes tend to make people look older than they feel- what they see in the mirror is not consistent with what they feel. Many baby boomers that are still working as well as those who are retired feel young in heart and full of life, but face these dilemmas of aging on a regular basis.

We all know that facelift is one of the best gifts you can give to an aging face for a younger and refreshed look. But full facelifts are invasive, can require a long recovery period, and can leave scars. If you are looking for procedures that will help you achieve the same benefits as a facelift but without the drawbacks, you may want to consider a mini facelift or a Natural Lift.

A mini facelift is a procedure that reverses the signs of aging, removes wrinkles, tightens your skin, and helps boost your self-confidence. A mini facelift is a great way to remove excess skin around jowls and correct deep lines and wrinkles. Mini facelifts leave much smaller scars than regular facelifts—just a short scar behind the ear—and these can be covered much more easily. However, it is not designed to correct sagging neck. But, a mini facelift offers better results than microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Botox, and other treatments, but if you want to achieve the best beauty results, you can combine treatments. A mini facelift is easy to combine with other plastic surgery procedures such as an eyelid lift or fat grafting.

The Natural Lift is considered the latest breakthrough in facial rejuvenation. Natural Lift procedure can help counter generalized sagging of face and neck to create a more rested and youthful facial appearance. It does not change who you are, it simply makes you look the way you did years ago, matching your outer appearance with how you feel on the inside! It re-sets your face’s clock back to 5-15 years ago.

This revolutionary procedure is minimally invasive, allowingpatients to achieve a beautiful unoperated look quickly. It gently washes the years away from your face in about one hour. Best of all, only local anesthesia is used, so you can get back to your life, with minimal recovery and discomfort time, yet achieving long lasting results. This procedure is best for people who do not wish to have a traditional pulled and unnatural face lift look.

This procedure is truly the new generation of high definition facial rejuvenation without the costs and prolonged recovery associated with a traditional facelift. The Natural Lift was designed by board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati to improve the laxity of jowls, cheeks, and loose neck (turkey neck).
