Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

Agressive Skin Care + Enough Filler = GREAT RESULTS

December 14th, 2011 — 10:25pm

Seattle Plastic Surgeon shows off a GREAT NON-SURGICAL RESULT – take a look at this.

I saw this patient recently who I have been treating with aggressive skin care and HA fillers (eg Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Prevelle) over about 9 months.  She has been very, very dedicated to her skin care program and I’ve been very, very dedicated to injecting her with filler where she needs it and, as mentioned in a previous blog, using enough to really filler ‘er up. 

And take a look at these photos.  Her skin quality is so much better and the shape of her jaw line and chin is so improved and her wrinkles —- what wrinkles?????  

Fat transfer followed by a deep chemical peel could have achieved this result but no face lift, I repeat, no face lift could have achieved this sort of improvement.

 Yes, she will need continued skin care and will need to come in every year or so for some more filler but remember, this is all with no down time and very, very little pain and suffering. 

 And just remember all of those things we do that also need maintenance – hair, nails, legs, bikini line (ouch),  eyebrows, etc.  Oh yeah, and how about getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months.  No down time but talk about pain and suffering!
