Nasolabial Folds Treatment by Dr Philip Young Seattle | Bellevue : Options and New Ways of Approaching this Area

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Nasolabial Folds Treatment by Dr. Philip Young Seattle | Bellevue, Options and New Ways of Approaching this Area:  Treating the nasolabial folds seems like a very specific issue and separate from all the rest of the face. This approach has been used in the past. We did facelift to pull the fold up. Implants to the Nasolabial Fold: we used tissue to fill in the crease with fascia, alloderm, implants of silicone, goretex etc.  We have used Mid face lift to pull the cheek upwards to help this area. Fillers have been commonly used to approach this fold with a minimally invasive thought. Facial Implants have been used to fill in the space under the fold with some success. All of these approaches seem to work to some degree, with fillers have a more temporary duration and Solid Implants having more of a longer lasting effect. Perhaps the better way of looking into the nasolabial folds is to address them from a global perspective and approach them as being a part of the general advancement of aging of the face as a whole.

The nasolabial folds as an indication of the face aging as a whole: The aging of the face can be thought of as a general loss of volume sort of like how a grape changes into a raisin. The grape is much larger than a raisin and has a lot less folding than a raisin does. Filling in the nasolabial folds is like filling in a small area of depression or crevice in a raisin. The raisin may look good but may not look completely regenerated like a grape would look. It is our opinion and the opinion of the YoungVitalizer Team that to more appropriately address the nasolabial folds, you need to address the whole face, or at least the larger area around the nasolabial folds to get the best result. We feel to better address the nasolabial folds you need to shape the whole part of the face around the folds. This means that you should rejuvenate the cheek, the mouth, the nose and the general area around the nasolabial folds.  You can read more about the YoungVitalizer by clicking the logo of the YoungVitalizer below.

Minimally Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery – The YoungVitalizer

Minimally Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery – The YoungVitalizer by Dr. Philip Young of Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery in Bellevue: We are starting a new blog category called Minimally Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery. With this subject we would like to talk about the YoungVitalizer the minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. Most of the time when you think about minimally invasive appraoches you think that you might be getting something that is less effective. The purpose of this blog is to say that this is not always true. In fact, when we talk about the YoungVitalizer, is that we think this approach is an improvement to facial rejuvenation over face lifts, mid face lifts, cheek lifts, etc. We think the results you can get with the YoungVitalizer is much better than traditional approaches like face lifting etc. The downtime is much better in many ways, there are no incisions in the face that are needed with the YoungVitalizer, General Anesthesia is not required, discomfort is way less with the YoungVitalizer when compared to facelifts, etc. and other traditional procedures. How is that. Well it has to do with the way that we age. Aging is effected mainly through a volume loss. The YoungVitalizer replaces this loss and shapes your face in a natural way, the way that you aged. This is the reason why the results are better than traditional procedures.

Here is a video of Dr. Young explaining the YoungVitalizer on New Day Northwest:
