Dr. Sean McNally performs a full variety of surgical facial treatments in Portland, OR. One of the most commonly requested procedures at The Oregon Clinic is the facelift. This surgery focuses on distinct regions of the face to treat lax skin and wrinkles to produce a refreshed, firmer appearance. A facelift can focus on the eyes, the cheeks and mid-face, the bottom portion (including the jowls, mouth, and neck), and more, making it a versatile surgery for an all-over younger look. There are many factors that must be considered when choosing a facelift technique, including the condition of your skin, your age, lifestyle, and your own aesthetic desires, among other things. Dr. McNally is a skilled surgeon who has a complete understanding of the complexity and delicate anatomy required for facelift surgery. The overall goal is to produce a natural appearance that's gorgeous, subtle, and still striking.

A customized facelift procedure done at The Oregon Clinic in Portland, OR is an ideal surgical solution for individuals who deal with wrinkles and fine lines and are wanting to improve the appearance of their skin. Cosmetic and practical benefits of this procedure performed by Dr. McNally are:

  • Improving noticeable age signs
  • Refining total facial contours
  • Improving drooping cheeks and double chins
  • Tightening loose, sagging skin
  • Efficient at diminishing the appearance of moderate to severe lines and folds
  • Diminishing the visibility of lines and folds around your eyes and lips
  • Replenishing lost fullness around the mid-face and beneath the eyes
  • Marginal scarring that can be smoothly covered
  • Good for women and men alike
  • Outcomes are long-lasting

Most individuals interested in a surgical facelift wish to address noticeable drooping in the cheek, under eye, and jaw sections of the face. A facelift can address various areas, depending on your personal desired outcome. It is important to note that age won't always define the appropriate time to have a facelift. There are several individual aspects, as well as many lift types, to take into account. The method performed will be different for those under 50 and those over 60. Skin laxity is one of the primary components in the planning process. Also, facelift candidates must be in good overall health, refrain from smoking, and maintain reasonable outcome expectations.

There are several possible facelift options Dr. McNally might recommend based on your desired results. Some facelifts rejuvenate the upper area of the face while others focus on the middle and lower portions. In addition, some procedures are slightly more invasive than others. Many of our patients at The Oregon Clinic will also complement their facelift with a brow lift or fillers and BOTOX® to enhance their outcomes. Some of the more known facelift methods offered to patients in Portland, OR include:

  • Full Facelift
    Considered the gold standard, the full (or "traditional") facelift most often puts an incision near the hairline, then extends down to the area near the temples, reaching the base of the ears. The underlying facial muscles are carefully stretched and safely tightened to produce a lifted outcome, which reduces excessive loose skin and droopy features. The traditional facelift is reserved for patients who show signs of aggressive aging. During a full facelift, several treatments may be used, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to enhance the eyes or a neck lift for the lower region.
  • Mid-Facelift
    With a similar method to the mini facelift below, the surgery known as a mid-facelift addresses the droopy features near the cheekbones and the upper jaw. The mid-facelift works well for those who hope to attain improvement in the middle to lower region of the face, which also improves the look of the jowls.
  • Lower Facelift
    This particular facelift corrects the neck region, chin, and in many cases, the jowls. Nonsurgical methods, such as laser skin tightening or KYBELLA®, can also be used for chin reduction to attain a softer, tighter neck.
  • Mini Facelift
    When undergoing a mini facelift, a tiny incision is made around the ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which helps the mid to lower face. This method creates nice and subtle enhancements that look beautiful and natural.

I have wanted/needed a breast reduction for most of my life. I had insecurities about my body but more importantly I experienced chronic back pain. I tried everything before reaching out to Dr. McNally for his opinion. Sean McNally has such a kind yet comical nature; he made me feel heard, reassured and so at ease through everything.. You can tell this comes as a second nature to him. I am still in disbelief with how easy the process was leading up to my surgery and how amazing his team has been throughout my recovery. My new breasts look absolutely beautiful and have already made me feel more comfortable and confident than ever before.
