Facelift Then & Now: What to Expect With Modern Facial Procedures

Many patients considering anti-aging procedures are hesitant to consider a facelift. It’s likely because the procedure has come to be associated with unnatural results, such as the infamously tight, pulled-back skin the surgery used to produce.

Case of the Month – June, 2018

This mini-facelift case illustrates the (many) limitations of a “thread-lift” or 2-hour (or less) “Lunchtime/Weekend Facelift.” Indeed, this 64 year-old woman had undergone one of these procedures six years prior (reportedly via a company that is now out-of-business) in an attempt to perform an “isolated lift” of her neck areas, and was left with a …

How Long Does a Facelift Last?

When people considering a facelift in Denver ask, "How long does it last?" This question baffles me. Not because it doesn't make sense to me that people want an answer. And not because I am unaware of the evolution that occurs for my patients after facelift surgery. The question baffles me because I don't know what they mean by "last." …

I’m OK Being “Plan B”

Earlier this week, I spent a half hour discussing plastic surgery in my Denver, CO, office with one of those interesting, confident, has-her-act-together patients who help make my job fun.

A patient I recently saw in consultation for a mini-facelift at my practice in Denver, CO, asked an interesting question: "Do facelift patients have a hard time adjusting to their new, younger appearance?" Without hesitation, my answer was "No." As I thought about it, I realized why, and a quick internet search confirmed my suspicion. A common …

Can cosmetic surgery be too acceptable??

So I saw an attractive 25-year-old woman yesterday who came in for a consult with me because she was convinced she wanted a facelift. A mini-facelift, yes, but still a facelift. On exam, this woman had a lovely facial shape and a well-defined neck. No massive weight loss; no skin disorders resulting in abnormal facial laxity; no turkey …

Not Everything Great is New, and Not Everything New is Great

As I peruse the day-to-day goings on in the plastic surgery media world, I am constantly reminded that what makes for a "news" story is often hugely removed from my day-to-day practice.  I don't see a lot of perfection-obsessed reality TV stars at my Denver-based practice, however,  I do see a growing number of 42-year-old …

Lifestyle Lift penalized for “astroturfing”

The company behind the Lifestyle Lift was penalized $300,000 for "cynical, manipulative, and illegal" activites in the state of New York.  Seems they were engaging in a practice called "astroturfing", whereby employees of the company were posing as satisfied patients on chatrooms and Plastic Surgery forums.  According to the report, these were not simply overzealous …

The Demise of Threadlifts?

A recent study performed by Dr. Rima Abraham of Albany Medical College in New York caught my eye, and confirmed what many experienced facelift surgeons have long suspected: Thread Lifts, which purport to lift the soft tissues of the face through the use of barbed sutures inserted under local anesthesia, don't really work, and shouldn't …
