Tseng Plastic Surgery

If you are seeking natural-looking, long-lasting results far beyond what injectables can offer, then Dr. Tseng’s facelift in Kirkland may be the ideal procedure for you.

Is a facelift right for me?

Injectables and other non-surgical treatments can produce a significant improvement during the early stages of aging, but injectables have limitations. They bring temporary volume, soften fine lines, or tighten up skin to some degree. However, as aging progresses, we accumulate fatty deposits, an excess volume of sagging skin, the tissue of the face and neck begin to sag to the point that no injectable will resolve the problem. For more advanced signs of aging, a facelift is typically the most effective treatment.

Facial aging and you

The aging process has several factors. The first few signs of aging are etched-in lines, wrinkles and creases, hollow cheeks, and drooping jowls. The facial skin’s fatty layer thins, and bone mass can shrink. The facial muscles begin to sag and become less resilient.

Your skin stretches, becomes thinner, and loses its youthful elasticity. Essentially, the skin no longer fits the underlying structure and appears loose and saggy. These effects are a natural consequence of age – but many of them can be reversed with modern cosmetic surgery.

What is the best type of facelift?

Dr. Mark Tseng is a highly-skilled 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.
  • Limited facelift: This technique 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. A neck lift treats more extreme neck issues, including wrinkles, vertical bands, and a double chin.

What to expect: The facelift procedure

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, 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.

Why choose Dr. Tseng for a facelift in Kirkland?

Dr. Tseng has an uncommon level of surgical skill, 17 years of education, and is among the most experienced plastic surgeons in the Auburn area. Beyond his impressive surgical skills and familiarity with the most advanced techniques, he keeps his prices reasonable. If you are looking for superior results in a facelift, you deserve to discover his Kirkland practice.

What is the recovery time after a facelift?

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.
