Facelift Surgery

When you come to Dr. William Portuese for facial rejuvenation, he has over 20 years of experience in surgery. He has done hundreds of procedures to improve the face and neck area.

In the next step they will look at the structure of your face and neck, look at the quality of your skin tone, and look at your bone structure. Dr. William Portuese will then make suggestions that he thinks will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. He will talk about the procedures he thinks is best for you and give you information about where the incisions will be made, the risks and complications, and what non-surgical things you can do to make the surgery even better. They could be dermal fillers, botox, laser treatments, professional skincare, and more. Some of these may come with your surgical package.

Before having facelift surgery, your Seattle facial plastic surgeon will tell you not to take aspirin, ibuprofen products, Vitamin E, and some herbal medications. These medications can cause more bleeding and/or bruising. He will also want you to stop smoking for at least a month before the surgery to make sure you heal properly, if necessary. After your consultation, your Patient Care Coordinator will give you all the financial information about any procedures you talked about and, if possible, give you financing options if they are available to you. She can also help with the next step in the process and/or give you more information, like before-and-after photos, articles, videos, and so on.

A facelift is a surgery that can be done in Seattle, WA. A facelift in Seattle is one of the most all-around rejuvenating procedures in all of facial plastic surgery. While some patients think that the goal of a face-lift is to make the skin tighter, the goal of a face-lift is to make the muscles under the skin look tighter. Because tighter skin is the goal, from a surgeon’s point of view, this happens more as a “good thing” as a result of the tightening of the muscular layers below the skin. As you learn more about Facelift Surgery: It is very common for people who have facelifts done by older surgeons to look like they have been “blown away,” which is a bad thing. A facelift in Seattle is a surgical procedure that can make a big difference in this area. Dr. William Portuese tries to tighten the muscles under the skin. This gives a very natural and rejuvenated look that doesn’t look “surgical” or “pulled.” People don’t know that there are cuts around their ears and on their scalp. The pain isn’t bad, but there will be some bruising and swelling. Most of Dr. William Portuese’s patients get better in 10 to 14 days, but it can take longer for some. It doesn’t matter if it’s a mini facelift, a cheek lift for a few days, or a full facelift. There are incisions on both sides of the ear, which are very hard to see after a few weeks. Some small incisions are hidden in the hairline behind the ear and the hairline in front of the ear. Surgery is used to make a layer of muscle called the SMAS tighter. This helps to lessen the look of sagging cheeks and jowls. You and Dr. Portuese will figure out the best way to make your face look better while still giving it a fresh and natural look. A facelift can be used with other lifting procedures and skin resurfacing to get the best results.

Should I consider a facelift?

Dr. William Portuese uses a variety of techniques to give your facelift a new and improved look. Most facelifts done by Dr. William Portuese are based on the idea of tightening the SMAS muscles in the face. A method that is sometimes called a “deep-plane facelift.” This tightening of the SMAS muscle layer will make you look younger and more rested, but it won’t make you look like you’ve been over-pulled or windblown.
