Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. It involves altering the size, shape, and structure of the nose, including the tip, bridge, bones, cartilage, and nostrils. The nose plays a significant role in defining a person’s appearance, and even a subtle adjustment can have a profound impact on one’s overall look. Whether you desire to increase or decrease the size of your nose or sculpt its shape, a well-executed rhinoplasty can greatly enhance your facial aesthetics.

When considering a nose procedure, it is crucial to have realistic goals and expectations, just as with any cosmetic surgery. It is also important to carefully contemplate your reasons for seeking a nose job from a plastic surgeon in Seattle. The objective of nasal contouring surgery is to enhance the nose’s aesthetic appeal and create better harmony with other facial features. In some cases, this procedure can also improve breathing. The surgery involves making small incisions on the inside of the nose, eliminating the need for external incisions. The skin is gently lifted from the underlying cartilage and bone, allowing for precise sculpting of the nose to achieve the desired shape. Subsequently, the skin is repositioned and the incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures.

The eyelids play a significant role in facial expressions and can greatly impact one’s appearance. Many patients are told by their friends that they appear tired, despite feeling perfectly fine. To address this concern, an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty is often performed. This procedure, sometimes included in a mommy makeover, is commonly referred to as getting “eyelids done” and serves both aesthetic and functional purposes. It aims to create a more refreshed look for the upper lids and eliminate puffiness and under-eye bags for the lower lids. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from both the upper and lower eyelids. Explore before and after photos of patients with baggy eyelids to witness the transformative results.

The neck is composed of three main components: skin, muscle, and fat. Excess fat in the neck can disrupt the clean jaw/neck angle and appear both above and below the platysma muscle. To address this, surgical intervention is required. Fat located beneath the platysma muscle is surgically excised, while the fat above the muscle is removed using a combination of indirect and direct liposuction techniques. The platysma muscle is then sewn together at the front and tightened to the neck muscles, creating a rejuvenated jawline. The skin naturally drapes over the newly contoured neck without the need for skin removal during the neck lift procedure.

Following the surgery, patients often appear as if they have lost weight due to the removal of excess fat in the neck. Neck lift surgery is an excellent option for individuals, both men and women in their 40s or 50s, who possess good skin tone but have localized excess fat in the neck area.

The facelift procedure is designed to reverse the effects of aging and has undergone significant refinements. It is now regarded as a true artistic form. A comprehensive face and neck lift is a cosmetic procedure often included in a mommy makeover. Its purpose is to address issues such as skin laxity, sagging, and jowling in the face and neck. The primary objective is to lift the jowls and rejuvenate the neck, as they are typically the first areas to reveal signs of aging.

This plastic surgery procedure is suitable for both men and women. It involves the removal of fat from the neck, both above and below the platysma muscle. The platysma muscle, as well as the front and back portions of the neck behind the ears, are tightened. Additionally, the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) along the cheekbone area is also tightened. It is crucial to tighten the facial muscles without placing excessive tension on the skin. This approach, performed by a skilled plastic surgeon in Seattle, ensures that there is no noticeable pulling or tightening of the skin, thus avoiding an unnatural, “wind-tunneled” or overly pulled appearance.
