At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we understand that the prospect of a breast lift (or any other procedure) can be intimidating to our Denver-area patients. We believe that a lot of the nerves patients experience derive from not knowing what to expect. The more you know about a procedure, the more confident and comfortable you will be.

The breast lift procedure is really quite simple. Generally speaking we like to use general anesthesia for the procedure. Then, our board-certified plastic surgeons will make one of four possible incisions in the areola complex.

We have often emphasized on this blog and throughout this site that liposuction, while extraordinarily effective at helping Denver-area residents remove stubborn deposits of fat, is not a weight loss procedure.

It’s also important to understand that diet and exercise are still crucial after liposuction. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is still necessary if you are to look and feel your best.

Liposuction will remove the fat cells from the treatment area, which means that part of your body will be rather resistant to new, unsightly fat...

Perhaps the most difficult of all common cosmetic surgeries is rhinoplasty. The complex structures of the nose and sinuses and the delicate nature of the tissues involved make rhinoplasty a precise and demanding procedure for even the most experienced cosmetic surgeon.

There are several reasons why a Denver patient may seek a revision rhinoplasty. Poor communication between patient and surgeon is a common issue. Computer modeling is a great tool to help create a road map for your rhinoplasty goals. However, your actual outcome may vary...

Weight loss is an excellent option for people who want to look better and possess more self-confidence in their appearance. Denver is a very fit city, and our residents have a commitment to healthy living.

“Panniculus” is a word many Denver-area patients are unfamiliar with. However, the condition it describes- a large, apron-like overhang of fat and skin in the abdominal region- is one that you might be all-too-familiar with if you’ve lost a great deal of weight.

The good news is that you don’t have to just deal with this unsightly, inconvenient panniculus. Grossman Plastic Surgery’s board-certified plastic surgeons can perform a panniculectomy, removing the panniculus entirely.
