Facelift Kirkland and Bellevue


Dr. Mark Tseng is a highly skilled Kirkland plastic surgeon dedicated to helping you define your beauty. He uses several different techniques and will select the approach that will be most effective for you. Depending on your needs and goals, he may recommend:

Full Facelift

This technique provides the most significant results, tightening the face, upper neck, removing jowls, and restoring youthful definition at the jawline. Excess skin is removed, the underlying facial muscles are tightened, wrinkles are smoothed away, and the facial skin and tissue are optimally repositioned. Excess fat may be removed or redistributed.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift is less invasive and involves fewer incisions than a full facelift. It focuses on the mid to lower face and is often the appropriate approach for younger patients.

Neck Lift

This procedure may be needed as an adjunct to a full facelift. Elevate your profile and redefine your neckline with the neck lift, featuring the advanced technique of Platysmaplasty. Dr. Mark Tseng's expertise shines as he artfully tightens the underlying muscles and tissues of the neck, effectively addressing sagging skin and muscle bands. The result is a smoother, more sculpted neck contour that complements your overall appearance. Say goodbye to the telltale signs of aging and hello to a more confident, rejuvenated you.

Deep Plane Facelift

In Kirkland and Bellevue, Dr. Mark Tseng has mastered the deep plane facelift technique, a breakthrough method involving the meticulous release of ligaments within the deep plane layer. This skillful approach brings about a facelift procedure with unburdened flexibility, eradicating any sense of constriction. Dr. Tseng's pioneering technique focuses on the release of four key ligaments, culminating in a naturally elevated appearance throughout the face and neck.

Ponytail Facelift

Dr. Tseng's Deep Plane facelift technique operates by lifting the skin and underlying muscle (SMAS) in a unified motion, relocating all deep cheek fat pads and musculature. This holistic approach ensures that the lift originates from beneath the deep structure, resulting in a smooth and natural surface appearance, free from the tautness commonly associated with facelifts. Notably, this method also bolsters the facial blood supply, promoting swift healing. Fundamental facial ligaments, crucial for facial support, are raised, reconstructing the foundational framework of the face, ultimately yielding enduring outcomes. Additionally, the deep plane facelift embraces the notion of lifting sagging tissues vertically against the pull of gravity, expertly rekindling the cherished heart-shaped countenance of youth. This remarkable feat is facilitated by precise, discreet incisions made feasible through endoscopic technology.

Female patients relish the ability to confidently sport ponytails, while male patients can embrace short hairstyles or even shaved heads, untroubled by hair loss concerns. While technically intricate, the deep plane facelift offers results that are rejuvenating and enduring in nature.

Your facelift will be 100 percent customized. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and will involve incisions placed in a manner to be virtually invisible once healed, usually around the ears. Through this access point, the facial muscles are tightened, excess skin removed, and the skin is restored to its higher, more youthful position. Dr. Tseng employs an advanced technique for his facelift surgery in Kirkland and Bellevue, so the results appear real, never fake. The procedure may require several hours to complete, after which you can return home, under the care of another adult, to rest and recover.


Prior to a facelift Kirkland and Bellevue patients should arrange for someone to drive them home after their procedure and stay with them for 24 hours. For two weeks before your treatment, you will need to quit smoking and drinking, as these behaviors can compromise your results and increase your risk of complications. You will also need to discontinue certain medications as indicated by your surgeon. Make sure you prepare your living environment for relaxation. You might want to gather your favorite books and movies, stock up on extra pillows, and stock your kitchen. The more time you spend preparing, the less stressful your recovery will be.


Immediately after Dr. Tseng’s facelift in Kirkland, your face will be protected with bandages and you will need to arrange for another adult to transport you home. On the first day after your surgery, you will be very tired and will likely sleep the day away. Dr. Tseng will see you again the day after your surgery. By the third day, you will feel better and able to move around your home, but during the third and fourth day, the swelling and bruising reach a peak.

The side effects fade with each day. Your face may feel tight or numb, which resolves with time. The stitches will be removed when the incisions have healed, which varies slightly from person to person. After about four weeks, you should feel ready to reveal your refreshed, youthful look to others with confidence.

At our practice, we prioritize your well-being and strive to enhance your surgical experience with our exclusive Tsensational Healing Methods. Developed by Dr. Tseng, these tailored protocols and advanced treatments are designed to optimize your recovery journey before, during, and after your facelift procedure.

Scars are hidden within the scalp and are typically covered by your hair. If you have short hair, you might consider growing it out a bit to camouflage your incisions further. We can also suggest certain cosmetics that help cover your scars.


Facelift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and typically takes several hours. If you undergo additional procedures such as a neck lift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery in tandem with your facelift, treatment time may be extended.
