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 and Dr Joseph Shvidler, board-certified facial plastic surgeons, use the closed approach to provide natural and balanced results for his patients without the necessity for an external nose incision.

Facelift & Necklift

Our facial plastic surgeons offer facelift and necklift surgery procedures. Their experience in head and neck surgery allows them to conduct a deep-plane Facelift and Necklift that makes patients look younger and more vibrant. Our findings show that thye can make the jawline and neckline look younger without making the patient look "done." Due to their Rapid Recovery technique, individuals who have had a facelift or necklift recover quickly. In addition, they make the tiniest and shortest incisions feasible.

There are never two identical faces or necks. Our surgeons will carefully examine your anatomy during your appointment to find the optimal location for your incisions. They make sure the incisions are as little as possible while yet providing you with the finest potential outcome. They will show you how you will appear after the procedure and where the incisions for the Facelift or Necklift will be hidden. Their outcomes speak for themselves.

Additional Facelift and Necklift Procedures

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.

Eyelid Surgery - Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, popularly known as eyelid surgery, emerges as a specialized surgical procedure primarily designed to improve the appearance of the eyelids, or more specifically, to address issues linked to drooping or sagging eyelids. It aims to reform both aesthetic and functional aspects of the eye region by providing a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you appear more rested and alert. This procedure can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both, depending on the individual's needs. In detail, an upper blepharoplasty generally removes excess skin hanging over your eyes, sometimes obstructing your vision, while lower blepharoplasty effectively targets under-eye bags and fine wrinkles in the lower eyelid. Beyond cosmetic enhancements, blepharoplasty also serves a functional role by improving peripheral vision for those whose sight is hampered by drooping eyelids. In essence, blepharoplasty stands as a harmonious amalgamation of aesthetic refinement and purposeful remedy.
