Board-certified Denver Plastic Surgeon Dr. John A. Grossman was recently on the television program The View with an 81 year old patient who was preparing to have a facelift. One of the questions he was asked was “Do you think it’s safe to do such surgery on a woman of this age?” That question can easily be rephrased as “Can I be too old for plastic surgery?”

Dr. Grossman’s response on The View is the same response he gives to patients of any age:

Facelifting is not meant for younger people…the risks are no greater for a healthy person at 81 than they are...

The board-certified Denver plastic surgeons at Grossman Plastic Surgery know that every patient we see is entirely unique. Due to differences in weight, size, and other physical features, we are pleased to offer three tummy tuck options to meet the needs of every patient we see.

It is important to remember that breast augmentation can provide you long-lasting results, but will not last forever. Typically, the life expectancy of a breast implant is 10 years. This does not mean that yours cannot last longer. It also does not mean that yours will last that long. Every situation is unique. This will be discussed with you in full during your initial consultation with one of our Denver breast surgeons.

Knowing Your Options

When the effects of...
