“My goal was to find a method to bring back a person’s natural youthfulness without the operated, unnatural look and that is why I have my patients bring in photos of them when they were age 5 to 30. My YoungVitalizer helps restore natural and youthful contours they haven’t seen in years.”
—Dr. Philip Young, Seattle Facial Plastic Surgeon
Our plastic surgery consultation process begins with your initial phone call at 425-990-3223 where you can get some of your questions answered. We have a patient consultation form and a HIPAA Form (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). We encourage you to fill both of these forms and send it to us. You can email them as well.
During the consultation process, you will have multiple ways to get in touch with us either through email, phone (425-990-3223) and text messaging. Dr. Young strives to be available for all of his patients. For urgent issues, you can call the office and get a hold of him anytime.
The phone or video consultation includes a discussion with our patient care coordinator, who will answer your questions and prepare you for your consultation with the doctor. To help us in this process, we ask that you take five basic photos for us. It allows us to assess your desires in a surgery. These photos will be used by Dr. Young during his evaluation. We can also set up a video conference consultation through Skype.
During your consultation with Dr. Young, he will listen and do his best to find the issues that are important to you and personalize his approach to fit your needs. If you decide to proceed with surgery, we will set up a pre-procedure appointment that can be done over the phone. At this point, we will go over consent forms and you will be given your AFPS (Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery) care package that includes tips on what medications to avoid. We will discuss the type of anesthesia that best suit your personal needs depending on the particular procedure you are having done.
After your consultation, you can have access to Dr. Young’s personal email which he checks several times a day to ensure that he answers all of his clients’ questions.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Young will spend additional time to review your personal case with you. During this face to face meeting, he will decide if the procedures that are being planned are indeed the best thing for you.
Pictures are an essential part of having a procedure done here at Aesthetic Facial Body Plastic Surgery. These are the main photos we will need for your virtual consultation. There is a description after the images below:
Left Oblique View
Left Lateral View
Right Oblique View
Right Lateral View
All the images should be taken in a well-lit area. You should use the highest resolution camera as possible. The pictures should be clear and not blurry for the doctor to get the most accurate assessment of your condition. They should be close up and have only an inch around the face, showing all of the neck as well. If there is a particular area that you would like addressed, you should take even closer pictures of this area as well. Beyond the 5 photos, any different angle and / or photos taken at different distances can aid the doctor visualize what you are talking about. These can be sent in as well for illustration.
For the frontal view (see in the pictures below), each eye should be at the same level. The tops of your ear canals should be on the same horizontal plane as the top rim of the bone under your eye (inferior orbital rim). This plane should be on the same level as the floor. There should about an eye length around the whole face. The picture should show all of the neck as well.
For the Left Oblique View, the same things apply as they do for the frontal view. The key difference is that we want you to show your left side obliquely. You should turn your face just to the point where you nasal tip is in line with your cheek. In this example, the face was not turned quite enough (for demonstration purposes) because you still see some cheek in front of the nasal tip. In this photo, the face should be turned a little more so that the nasal tip just touches the cheek.
For the Left Lateral View, the same things apply as they do for the frontal view. The key difference is that we want you to show your left side only and you should turn your face so that you see only one eyebrow. This example is just right.
For the Right Oblique View, the same things apply as they do for the frontal view. The key difference is that we want you to show your Right Side Obliquely. It is the same as the Left Oblique but just the other side. As you can see in this picture, the nose and nasal tip are just touching the cheek. This is what we are looking for.
For the Right Lateral View, it is the same as the Left Lateral View just done for the other side.
Please send these pictures to us by mail or email prior to your phone consultation. Thank you!

“I just wanted to leave a note and say that my procedure with Dr. Young approximately 6 years ago took years off my face. He did an excellent job and I am still enjoying the results. It was very much worth the downtime. I look exactly like myself, just younger. Thanks, again!”
“He gave me my confidence back that I thought I would never get back. I can now look in the mirror and actually love what I see and not have to deal with pitted scars in my face. If you or anyone you know who thinks they have to just live with these scars, don't!”
“My procedure went great and I left the office with no concerns and all of my questions answered. I have never felt so good about myself and my appearance. I have you to thank for that Dr. Young. My new nose is perfect, I cannot thank you enough for this new look on life.”
