Facelift surgery is among the most delicate procedures to perform, and requires a nuanced, subtle approach in order to preserve facial spontaneity and individuality. Dr. Nadeau is able to deliver elegant, natural results that reflect the client’s innate beauty while minimizing age-related flaws. Wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds are smoothed away for a more youthful and refreshed countenance.
What does a facelift with Dr. Nadeau entail?
Dr. Nadeau performs facelifts in Seattle under general anesthesia, making an incision that is well-hidden within the hairline and within the natural creases around the ears. Fat, tissue and skin are then excised, while the facial contours are beautifully reshaped and redistributed. The deep SMAS muscles are tightened, providing long-term, comprehensive improvement in the scaffolding of the face.
“Dr. Nadeau is very compassionate, caring and understanding. She has always spent plenty of time with me and provides me with all the information I need to make any needed decisions. I am very fortunate to have her as part of my team of physicians to get me through my medical journey. The team she has to support her are very professional, compassionate and helpful.” Patient
