Facelift vs. Fillers: Comparing the Cost

The face is one of the first parts of the body to show aging, and patients today have many options for restoring a youthful glow. Both facelifts and dermal fillers can add volume and smooth out wrinkles. But many people come to our office asking the same question: which is a more cost-effective option, injectable …

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 at our Denver practice 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 6 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 …

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 …
