I Can't Describe How I Am Happy with the Results. - Seattle

Surgical cosmetic procedure is only as good as the doctor who performs it. Dr. William Portuese is a real professional in his field. He's an artist. One of the best.

Excellence! - Seattle Rhinoplasty

I was treated with the utmost respect. My first two visits were fast and they answered my questions honestly and gave me the best options for myself. The day of surgery they pampered me, and were fast. I came home and was recovering before I knew it. They supplied me with everything I would need. I already knew EXACTLY what the process would be since it was already discussed. I don't think I could have asked for more. They exceeded my expectations!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

One Very Happy Client! - Seattle, WA

I am a 53yro male and went in to see about having a facelift. Dr P said I really don't need one. He listened to my concerns and said he could do my upper and lower eyes plus cheek implants. He said "that's where you'll get the bang for your buck". Well, I went through the procedure and he was right!! What a difference it made in my appearance. I am very satisfied with the outcome and his entire staff was very supportive. I called a few times during my recovery and they listended to my concerns and addressed them. If I had to leave a message my calls were returned very promptly. If I need any future procedures I will definitely go to Dr P.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

I Wish I Had Choosen Dr. P the First Time Around!

Dr. P is fixated on precision, is confident, reassuring without being patronizing, and surrounds himself with an agile, competent, proactive staff. He performs a closed technique (for rhinoplasty)and the office and surgery rooms are comfortable and convenient. I like that he works with Swedish anesthesiologists. Overall, and most importantly, I felt very trusting of Dr. P, as well as confident in his aesthetic preferences, which is why I choose him for my revision surgery.

Dr. Portuese is Amazing - Seattle, WA

Dr. Portuese was amazing from beginning to end. I knew everything that was going on, how much it was, and the realistic results I could have with my rhinoplasty.

It Was Wonderful - Seattle

I HAVE recommended Dr. P to many of my friends. My experience was fabulous at his clinic. Both he and his staff are professional yet caring and kind. No question seemed too small or silly. Plus the office is just beautiful.

Totally Worth It! Had a Saggy Neck, Now It's Beautiful! - Seattle, WA

I am so thankful to Dr. Portuese and his staff!! Technically, Dr. Portuese is extremely skilled, and communicates reasonable expectations to his patients before surgery. My results FAR surpassed my expectations. Also, his staff is amazing: Janet met with me for a long time before I scheduled my surgery and was able to describe in detail what the experience would be like, what the discomfort would be like, what the post-op activities and healing experience would be. She was spot-on with everything she told me. Pam did a thorough medical history and review prior to the surgery, and my nurses Noel and (crap, can't remember the other nurse's name - sorry honey, I was a little stoned!) - anyway, they were great and took excellent care of me. And Deb was so patient with me, since I always blink when my picture is taken - she's skilled enough we got a few where I didn't look like a drunken sailor. All of his staff are patient and helpful, even with my nervous-Nellie of a husband who called for every little thing! Anyway, enough raves...I highly recommend Dr. Portuese for facial surgery, and...NO I don't work for him!!!

I tell patients, "No, I'm not." During rhinoplasty consultations, I assure the person that I'm not going to turn their nose up. I tell them that I'm not going to give you a ski slope, and I'm not going to give you a Miss Piggy. These were three
