Dr. Kevin Sadati, FAACSAnother  procedure that he’s known for nationwide is his revolutionary Natural lower face lift technique that has been published in the prestigious American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.  Dr. Sadati presented his technique in many national academic conferences such as American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery meetings. His natural face lift will bring up the jowls and provides an excellent neck lift. This lift will improve any type of neck; from a neck with minimal laxity, to the heaviest and the most difficult neck.  A great procedure for both men and women in their late 40’s to their 70’s.  This procedure is preferred by most because it’s done under local anesthesia using oral sedation without the need for general anesthesia.

Educational Summary

Dr. Sadati received scholarships to earn his undergraduate degrees in Molecular Cell Biology and Near Eastern Art & History from the University of California at Berkeley. He then became involved in wound healing research at the University of California at San Francisco. He went on to earn his medical degree from Midwestern University in Illinois. After completing his rotating internship at Michigan State University, Metropolitan Hospital, he continued his General Surgery, Otolaryngology/ Head & Neck Surgery at PCOM and the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He completed his facial plastic & reconstructive training in Philadelphia.

In his quest for a higher education, he attended fellowship training in general cosmetic & reconstructive surgery in the State of Washington that is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

While a resident at day, he also pursued his interest in art by attending evening classes at the Philadelphia School of Fine Arts. He felt that by learning oil painting and sculpting, he would also gain 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. The means to this technique provided him a better understanding in how to achieve a harmonious and balanced body. With the use of clinical applications at surgery, and by implementing this skill, he produced a harmony in the body that worked.
