Rhytidectomy (Face Lift)
A face lift is a procedure that often combines multiple smaller procedures to achieve a youthful and balanced look. There is no ideal time, as people age differently due to genetic influences, exposure to the sun and other factors. In youth, the face is firm and smooth with natural fatty tissue directly beneath the skin. This diminishes over time, and can create a saggy or hollow appearance.
Common face lift combinations include addressing wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and marionette lines along the nose, sagging neck or jowl line, re-positioning the cheek pads, and addressing thinning lips. Every patient that we see for a facelift procedure in Northern Colorado is unique, and all our patients receive a simulation photograph to understand how the changes will look once the healing is complete.
