Grossman Plastic Surgery offers facelift procedures for patients who wish to restore the elegant, youthful contours of their face and neck. The procedure tightens the deep tissues and muscles of the face and removes excess fat and skin to provide you with a smoother, tighter, younger facial appearance.
When Dr. Grossman first entered into practice many years ago, the facelift was a routine “cookie-cutter” procedure that involved the same skin lifting and tightening for everybody. Today, the facelift is a “family” of techniques customized to your unique needs. As a result, your procedure will provide you not only with smooth, firm skin, but also volume-producing fullness in your cheeks, chin, and jaw line. To accomplish these goals, your facelift may include shaping, liposuction, sculpting, and volume addition.
To begin designing a facelift perfectly tailored to your health and cosmetic goals, please call Grossman Plastic Surgery at (866) 221-9665 for a personalized consultation with our accomplished doctors.
Am I a Candidate for a Facelift?
Ideal candidates for a facelift are in good overall health but have:
- Loose skin in the face, neck, or forehead
- Loss of facial volume
- Good skin elasticity
See our Facelift Candidacy page for more information.
A Customized Facelift Procedure
Denver plastic surgeons Dr. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro don’t look at every face the same. You may have segments of your face that would benefit from rejuvenation, while others are fine the way they are. Therefore, your facelift will be custom catered to address the unique characteristics of your face. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will only work on the areas that would benefit from a facelift.
Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will not approach your procedure from the perspective of a technician. Instead, they view your procedure as a potential work of art. Each facial surgery they perform is specifically designed to match the needs of the individual patient. An effective facelift is not just about tightening skin. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro also pay close attention to the contours of your face, and they will analyze each component of your face to determine the best procedure to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Grossman Plastic Surgery offers the following facelift options:
- Full facelift: Your entire face will be treated to give you a more refreshed appearance. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a neck lift for enhanced results.
- Mid facelift: This procedure specifically focuses on the central region of the cheek, between the lower eyelid and the corner of the mouth.
- Mini facelift: An excellent option for people at an earlier stage in the aging process or for people who have had prior facelifts and are beginning to show signs of age.
- SMAS facelift: Deep layers of tissue are treated to provide a more youthful appearance.
Recovery and Follow-Up Care
Immediately following your surgery, you may experience some swelling and mild pain. This will gradually subside as you heal. You will want to keep your head elevated while sleeping for two weeks after your surgery to facilitate the resolution of swelling and bruising.
Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will provide you with detailed follow-up care instructions including an explanation of how to apply the special dressing. Your sutures will be removed a week after surgery, and you can generally shower the day after the procedure.
