Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation: It May Be The Solution For Your Undefined Jawline

By | Face, Chin Augmentation, Injectables | No Comments

When patients seek treatment for an undefined jawline, they may think that jaw filler or an implant are the only methods that will help them get the chiseled, contoured jaw they want. However, because of the jaw’s relative location on the face, and it’s importance to the facial profile, addressing the chin may actually provide the results they want. 

Lengthening the jaw by injecting filler or placing an implant in the chin, can make the jaw look longer and sharper. Additionally, a recessed jaw often causes an unpronounced jaw. When you correct this using filler or an implant, this can lead to a strong, defined jawline.

Chin augmentation can be performed in many ways, however, most commonly it is either achieved through the use of dermal fillers or a silicone implant. Dermal fillers provide a non-surgical, although temporary, it does allow you to try out the look of your chin and jawline before committing to an implant. Some people also only need minor corrections, making an implant unnecessary for their needs.

2020 Cosmetic Surgery Trends: Buccal Fat Removal And The Ideal Candidates

By | Buccal Fat Removal, Face | No Comments

Buccal fat removal is on the path to become one of the hottest and fastest growing cosmetic surgeries in 2020. The procedure–which requires a talented and experienced cosmetic surgeon–removes the buccal fat pads located in the cheeks. This usually results in a natural slimming of the face and can provide added definition to the cheekbones. 

While many people find themselves dissatisfied with the amount of fat in their cheeks, when the procedure is performed on an unideal candidate, it can quicken the aging process and result in unwanted gauntness in the area earlier in life. Anyone thinking about buccal fat pad removal should use careful consideration and consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.

Buccal fat removal candidates should be at least 25 and at a healthy body weight. Weight gain, hormonal factors, and age can all contribute to the amount of fat present in your cheeks. Some people, however, are genetically predisposed to carry excess fat in their cheeks. In which case, weight loss, lifestyle changes, and other medical interventions will not result in a reduction of cheek fat. These are usually the best candidates for buccal fat removal.

Woman Using Neti Pot For Nasal Irrigation After Rhinoplasty in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland

The Importance Of Nasal Irrigation

By | PSA, Rhinoplasty | No Comments

Nasal irrigation is a common practice for preventing and treating sinusitis, colds, and other related nasal problems. Regularly practicing nasal irrigation can help clear your sinuses and prevent infection, especially during allergy and cold seasons. 

There are a variety of methods used to clean the sinuses and nasal passages. Saline sprays, neti pots, or more complex devices are all commonly used for irrigating the nose and sinuses. It is important to note that when using a neti pot or other at-home equipment you use it correctly and only with sterile water. Using tap water for nasal irrigation can increase the risk of infection. Though it may work, it is not worth the extra risk.

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, we recommend nasal irrigation after rhinoplasty procedures to help clear nasal passages of blood and mucus. This helps prevent infection and keeps the areas clean. Again, the importance of using sterile water is imperative for safe and effective healing.

Mini Facelifts: What Are They And How Are They Different?

By | SwiftLift™, Facelift | No Comments

You’ve probably heard of a facelift and how they can help you look years younger. For younger patients or those with fewer signs of aging, there is another procedure that may better suit for those where a traditional facelift is not needed. If you have sagging or wrinkled skin in the neck and jowls, but aren’t a candidate for a traditional facelift, a mini facelift may be a more suitable option.

A mini facelift is a less invasive version of a facelift. It targets a smaller area of the face, focusing only on the neck and jowls. While a facelift may focus on more areas of the face in addition to the neck and jowls. The incision is smaller and scars less.

A mini facelift is best for people who have concerns about their facial appearance, but may not need a full facelift. They are younger than the average facelift patient, or their concern is purely in the neck and jowls.

They also come with significantly less risk and recovery time than a traditional facelift. Since a mini facelift is less invasive than a facelift, it means there is typically less risk for complications during or after surgery. The average recovery for a mini facelift is 5-7 days, which for any surgical procedure is remarkably quick.

The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery happily offers facelifts to patients in Lynwood, Bellevue and Kirkland. Contact us to schedule a mini facelift consultation today.
