The Seattle Facial cosmetic Surgery Center

Trust Your Face TO Us.

Our center is a Medicare-certified (one of the highest qualifications of surgery centers available in the United States) and is a licensed ambulatory surgery facility by the Washington State Department of Health and is located adjacent to Swedish Medical Center on First Hill in Seattle WA. Dr. Portuese’s surgical team consists of four registered nurses who have over 30 years of combined experience.

One of the most common plastic surgery procedures is a Rhinoplasty or nose job. This cosmetic surgery procedure is best performed to increase or decrease the size of the nose, sculpt and change the shape of the tip, bridge, bones, cartilage or nostril size. Nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one’s appearance.

It is important to have realistic goals and expectations regarding the outcome of any nose procedure as with any cosmetic surgery procedure. It is also important to consider why you want to have a nose job from a Seattle plastic surgeon. The goal of this nasal contouring surgical procedure is to improve the nose aesthetically to better balance with the other features of the face; sometimes breathing is improved at the same time. This is performed by making small incisions on the inside of the nose. There are no external incisions during nasal contouring. The skin is lifted off of the cartilage and bone and the nose is then sculpted to the appropriate shape. The skin is then placed back in position and dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions inside the nose.

The eyelids are probably one of the most defining characteristics of face expression. Patients’ friends tell them that they look tired all the time, but yet they feel great. For that reason, an eyelid lift and/or blepharoplasty is performed. Eyelid surgery often included in a mommy makeover, is also referred to as having one’s eyelids done and can be performed for both aesthetic reasons and functional reasons. Performed to make the eyelids look more well rested on the upper lids and to remove the puffiness and bags on the lower lids. Excess skin and fat is removed on both the upper and lower lids.

The neck itself has three components; skin, muscle and fat. The fat in the neck obliterates the clean jaw / neck angle and presents both above and below the platysma muscle. Fat underneath the platysma muscle has to be surgically excised, while the fat above the muscle is removed with both indirect and direct liposuction. The platysma muscle must be sewn together in the front, and tightened to the neck muscles, to create a new jaw line. The skin will then drape over the new neck contour. There is no skin removal in the neck lift operation.

Patients appear as though they have lost weight because the fat in the neck has been removed. The neck lift surgery is a fantastic operation for both men and women in their 40’s or 50’s who has good skin tone, but simply has excess fat in the neck.

The facelift operation is performed to turn back the hands of time and has been refined in such a manner now that it has become an art form. A comprehensive face/ neck lift is a cosmetic procedure – often included in a mommy makeover – to treat face and neck skin laxity, sagging and jowling. The primary goal is to lift the jowls and clean up the neck, which are the first signs of showing a person’s age.

The plastic surgery procedure is performed on both men and women and involves removing fat in the neck, both above and below the platysma muscle. The platysma muscle, the front portion of the neck and the back portion of the neck behind the ears are tightened. The SMAS (which stands for the “superficial musculoaponeurotic system”) located along the cheekbone area, is also tightened. It is important that tightening of the face muscles is performed so as not to place any tension on the skin. The reason that this is done by a Seattle plastic surgeon is so there is not noticeable pulling or tightening of the skin, which will give a wind-tunneled or pulled look.
