A facelift offers you extraordinary facial rejuvenation. When our Denver plastic surgeons perform a facelift, the end result is a dramatically youthful and revitalized facial appearance.
However, a facelift is also an extensive, rather invasive procedure. It boasts an impressive safety record, but it’s not right for everyone. You might be concerned instead about some relatively mild, early signs of facial age and wear.
If this is the case, our plastic surgeons have a possible solution: a mini-facelift, which is designed to address these early concerns in a much less invasive fashion than a full, traditional facelift. If you live in the Denver, Colorado area and you want to speak to our plastic surgeons about your facelift options, please call Grossman Plastic Surgery at (866) 221-9665.
Why a Mini-Facelift?
Facial procedures are all designed to help address the signs of age and wear. However, we offer multiple procedures because there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to surgical facial rejuvenation.
Some of the earliest signals of age, especially sagging, appear in the lower portions of your face: the lower cheeks, chin and jowls. You can notice these issues as early as your 30s, and in many cases there are no other aesthetic concerns to address: your eyes and brow can look lively and youthful while your cheeks do not.
This is the situation a mini-facelift was specifically designed to address. There’s no reason to undergo a full, traditional facelift if it isn’t needed. And at Grossman Plastic Surgery, our Denver plastic surgeons are committed to ensuring that you receive only the care you need.
As noted above, the mini-facelift is significantly less extensive and invasive than the traditional facelift procedure. It requires fewer, smaller incisions and results in far less strain on your facial muscles.
A small incision is made along your hairline and the edge of your ear. Then, excess skin is removed while your while skin is stretched and elevated. This tightens the cheek muscles while lifting and toning the skin of your lower face.
A mini-facelift is sometimes called a “weekend facelift” because it requires just a few days of recovery time. By contrast, a traditional facelift can require more significant downtime.
Our Denver plastic surgeons will discuss your facelift options with you. During these conversations, our concerns will be your goals and your wellbeing. Those are the touchstones of our practice and always shall be.
