Facial Rejuvenation in Portland Oregon

Facial Rejuvenation in Portland Oregon by Dr. William Portuese
It is an unfortunate fact of life that age, the sun and heredity all seem to impact the facial features first. There are many things that contribute to facial wrinkling such as your ethnic background, sun exposure, diet, and alcohol and tobacco consumption. The aging face has specific areas that are likely to be affected by this process. These include, the drooping of the brows, the down turned corners of the mouth, the heaviness of the jowls and often times the lengthening and drooping of the nose. All of these are a result of on going changes in the skin, fat and muscles of the face.

Having an over all “tired look,” is an often complaint heard by Dr. William Portuese and his staff. Dr. William Portuese specializes in a natural lift to rejuvenate your face with minimal incisions or the usual tell tale signs of plastic surgery. You will be complemented on how youthful and rested you look and not on your new procedure.

The most common facial rejuvenation surgeries are endoscopic brow lifts, eyelids and facelifts. Redefining other facial features often enhances these procedures. Irregularities of the nose, ears, cheeks or chin may upset the balance of the face and affect the overall appearance, since these features are often viewed in relation to one another. Aesthetic surgery can reshape the nose, diminish prominence of the ears, and reshape the chin to improve excesses or deficiencies in these areas. Redefining the nose, chin or cheeks is common practice in facial rejuvenation. These cosmetic surgery procedures help to give the patient a softer, more youthful and well-defined appearance.

Chin augmentation

Chin augmentation (or chin implant) involves the placement of a small implant to enlarge and/or refine the shape of the chin and jawline according to top plastic surgeon like Austin Hayes MD.  Since we can rarely see what we look like in profile, many people come to see me for consultation after they see a picture of themselves in profile.  Most of these patients simply never realized that their chin was too small or that it was undermining their facial balance.

Proper balance of the face involves many factors, but the primary factors are the projection and relationship of the nose and chin.  Oftentimes patients feel that their nose is too prominent, when in reality their chin simply does not project enough to balance the nose.

Depending upon a patient’s existing anatomy and their desired outcome, I can select from a wide variety of implants the proper implant that will fit well and produce a natural look.  We can do computer simulations in the office during consultation that provide a pretty accurate projection of the results that can be expected.Chin augmentation is one of cosmetic surgery’s simplest procedures and recovery is prompt, with minimal bruising and moderate swelling.  Patients can return to their normal activities a short time after surgery.

Occasionally, a chin implant is done as an isolated procedure, but more commonly chin implants are used in conjunction with face lift, rhinoplasty, or neck liposculpture to produce a better and more pleasing balance to the lower face.
