By learning the art of oil painting and sculpting, he gained an enormous amount of understanding for the human form; and through his artistic training, he learned that having this skill would be a tool to use in surgery; that was both unique and beneficial to his patients. This furthered his understanding of how to achieve a harmonious, natural-looking and balanced look for his patients.

Dr. Sadati’s lower face and neck lift procedure, known as Natural Lift, is performed under local anesthesia and twilight sedation, eliminating the risk, expense and extended recovery time associated with having elective surgery under general anesthesia. His technique creates a more refreshed and youthful appearance without the patient getting a ‘pulled’ or ‘artificial look’. It can take years off of a patient’s appearance in approximately two hours with long lasting results.

Dr. Kevin Sadati’s patients describe the positive responses they get from family, friends and co-workers, who tell them constantly that they “look so amazing!” They cannot figure out if they have lost weight, gotten a new haircut or taken a relaxing vacation; all they know is that they see a refreshed and natural looking younger individual.
