A natural facelift uses small incisions hidden around the ears to access the muscles of the face and neck. Then muscles are tightened in a natural way to avoid the “pulled” look. Then excess skin is gently trimmed. Additionally, Dr. Sadati will remove any excess fat before repositioning your skin. Through tightening and smoothing out wrinkles, you can look up to 10 years younger. Since the muscles are tightened in two layers, you can expect long lasting results. Dr. Sadati has published a well known article in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery explaining his facelift technique; he also lectures his method at the national meetings. The procedure is performed in our office using twilight sedation, without the need for general anesthesia.
