Closed rhinoplasty

All of the incisions in a Closed Rhinoplasty Surgery are on the interior of the nose, with no apparent external incisions. An open rhinoplasty involves making an incision across the nose's columella to gain access to the tip and bridge, and then lifting the entire skin off the cartilages. Dr. William Portuese, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, uses the closed approach to provide natural and balanced results for his patients without the necessity for an external nose incision.

Facelift Surgery

With this facial plastic surgery procedure, three aspects are addressed. The first is neck fat, which can be eliminated via both direct and indirect liposuction as well as fat sculpting. The second element is muscle, which is tightened beneath the neck to define the jaw line, behind the jaw line to accentuate the posterior region of the jaw line, and at the cheek area to elevate the jowls. Excess skin is the third component of a complete facelift. After the muscles have been tightened and the fat has been eliminated, there is generally some excess skin that needs to be trimmed carefully. To get a highly natural and good-looking symmetrical facelift, all three of these plastic surgery components must be handled. The majority of close family members and acquaintances are unaware that a patient has had a facelift or neck lift. They just appear to be more rested, revitalized, and to have lost weight. The fat in the neck has been removed, giving the appearance of weight loss.

Necklift Surgery

Visible signs of aging along the neck and jawline can alter a person's appearance, making them appear older, exhausted, and worn out. Surgical intervention is frequently required for severe signs of aging. Facial Rejuvenation is a collection of surgical procedures that combine to restore young contours and provide a beautiful, natural-looking result. Neck lift surgery is a Facial Rejuvenation operation that can reduce the signs of aging caused by time, heredity, and gravity. A "turkey waddle" and double chin can be minimized through neck lift surgery, resulting in a beautifully shaped neckline. Neck lift surgery can make a patient look nearly ten years younger by removing hanging skin and extra fat from the neck and jowls. This cosmetic surgery procedure can be done in combination with other procedures such as Brow Lift (forehead lift), Blepharoplasty, and even Rhinoplasty.

Non-Surgical Procedures

Wrinkles on the face are caused by a number of circumstances. Wrinkles are caused by more than just cellular changes, collagen depletion, or blood damage caused by free radicals. The muscles between your brows contract when you scowl (make a face) or concentrate hard. This develops wrinkles by causing your skin to furrow and fold. Squinting also causes crow's feet because the muscles around your eyes contract. BOTOX is a non-surgical treatment that works beneath the surface of the skin. It focuses on the underlying muscular action that causes wrinkles to grow over time, making you look younger.
