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

Feeling a little Grinchy? I’m here to help!

Seattle Plastic Surgeon recommends Botox and Restylane for the GrinchAll he needs is a little Botox and Juvederm (and a heart enlargement).

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is one of my most beloved Christmas stories.  This tale of epiphany and redemption always gets me in the right mood for the Holidays.   I make sure this book is handy as soon as I see the stores put out their Christmas displays.  Christmas displays before Halloween make me feel really Grinchy.

The Grinch is an excellent example of an individual who would benefit a lot with two of the most popular non-operative procedures I do:  Botox and HA fillers.

Botox injected into the creases between his eyebrows would wipe that scowl right off his face.  And it just might make him feel better.  I have found that Botox for my scowl makes me feel less Grinchy.  It is sort of like how smiling makes you feel happy.  Non-scowling makes me feel non-Grinchy.

Mr. Grinch looks really old and haggard, partly because of his nasolabial folds – those creases that go from his nose to the corners of his mouth.  Plumping those up with one of the many HA fillers (Juvederm, Volbella, Voluma, etc.) would take years off his face.  Filler could also take care of that downturn at the corner of his mouth to give him a little friendlier expression.

So, of course, the Grinch needs the love and forgiveness of Whoville for redemption of his rotten soul but his face needs a little visit to the plastic surgeon.
