About Dr. Sadati

Dr. Kevin Sadati, an exceptional, highly specialized and experienced facial plastic surgeon, has over a decade of experience performing thousands of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. He is a board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngology/head and neck surgeon. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Sadati is respected by his peers and loved by his patients for his skill and expertise. He is so successful that he has been voted Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County by OC Register and Top Doctor by Realself. Dr. Sadati is particularly known for creating natural, non-operated looking results for patients. This can be credited to his extensive experience as well as his surgical finesse and natural artistic talent. Along with years of studying and training, Dr. Sadati has experience as a painter and sculptor, which embodies his artistic eye for, and appreciation of, aesthetic harmony. He believes that this is key to creating beautiful, natural looking results in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Sadati's Natural Facelift Technique

Along with perfecting many traditional techniques and procedures, Dr. Sadati is also responsible for pioneering many innovative procedures that are used by hundreds of other surgeons around the world. One notable example is his revolutionary Natural Facelift Technique.

Published in the prestigious American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and presented at national academic conferences like the annual American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery meetings, Dr. Sadati’s natural face lift is perfect for men and women in their late 40s to 70s. Dr. Sadati explains that, “As we age, the skin in the face and neck area tends to sag and loose its elasticity. This can be due to a number of factors, from stress to diet to the pull of gravity. My natural facelift technique will bring up the jowls and other lax areas, providing you with a more youthful looking face.” This procedure is preferred by most patients because it offers youthful looking results without the “pulled” or “tight” look common with traditional face and neck lifts. Patients also prefer this method because it is done under local anesthesia using oral sedation, without the need for general anesthesia. This is a safer alternative and reduces the patient’s recovery time.

Dr. Sadati's Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” can adjust the size, shape and position of the nose to make it more harmonious with the other elements of the face. Dr. Sadati is recognized as an expert in the Rhinoplasty field, and has performed hundreds of nose jobs as well as conducted training on this type of procedure for other professionals.

At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, a large portion of nose-related procedures revolves around correcting and refining the noses of patients who have endured unsatisfactory results with another surgeon. There is no revision Rhinoplasty, or “second nose job,” problem that Dr. Sadati considers too challenging to repair.

In addition to providing patients with aesthetic improvements to the nose, some rhinoplasty procedures can also improve the function of the nose. Functional rhinoplasty can correct a range of problems, including:

  • Repairing a Deviated Septum
  • Reducing Enlarged Turbinates
  • Removing Nasal Polyps
  • Repairing Nasal Valve Collapse

One of the most common nose corrections is repairing a deviated septum. In some patients, a deviated septum can cause issues like snoring, noisy, mouth breathing, difficulty breathing and even a bump or hump on the nasal bridge. Septoplasty is another medical procedure, which corrects a deviated septum and helps return functionality to the nasal passageways.

Along with being a board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and an otolaryngology/head and neck surgeon, Dr. Sadati is an ENT Specialist. An ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT), is a physician who is trained in the medical and surgical treatment of the ears, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck. With his extensive training and skill, Dr. Sadati can provide patients with procedures that can improve both the appearance and function of the nose.

Dr. Sadati's Fat Grafting Procedure with PRP

Another technique Dr. Sadati has pioneered is using fat grafting with PRP. This specially designed technique allows him to reduce the recovery time of several key procedures he regularly performs, as well as ensuring a higher degree of success than more traditional methods offer.

Fat Grafting using PRP is known to correct many facial issues including wrinkles, fine lines, lip enhancements, hollow jowls or cheeks and lower eyelid adjustments. While fat grafting is not a new procedure, Dr. Sadati has enhanced it by incorporating Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP helps ensure the success and retention of the fat grafts as well as helps results appear more consistent for a longer period of time. Dr. Sadati’s research has also shown that PRP helps shorten overall recovery time for the patient.

Dr. Sadati’s research on his Fat Grafting Procedure with PRP was originally published in The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. He has also presented on this topic at numerous conferences and industry events. His research has been so well received that Dr. Sadati was given the Best Scholarly Manuscript award while attending the Academy of Cosmetic Scientific Conference in 2006 for the paper he authored on the subject.

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.
