Surgical Facelift in Boulder, CO

A surgical facelift, or Rhytidectomy, is a procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the face, helping people restore youth to their appearance and improving their self-confidence. This popular surgery reverses aging by lifting sagging tissues and restoring volume, smoothing out deep folds or creases, and removing excess skin from the face.

Facelift Benefits

What to Expect During a Facelift

Facelifts are regularly same-day, outpatient surgeries. After you arrive at our facility, you will meet with Dr. Goldman and get prepped for surgery. Most facelifts can be performed under local anesthesia with people awake when it is appropriate. Sometimes, local valium and IV sedation are available. When Dr. Goldman employs this method, the facelift recovery is faster and more comfortable for the client. 

During the procedure, Dr. Goldman makes incisions along the ears, hidden in natural skin creases or folds, often into the hairline. Next, he lifts and repositions the facial muscles. During this time, facial tissue may be removed, and fat is used to reshape the face. In addition, excess skin is removed, and the skin is re-draped over the new face contours. Once the surgery is complete, the incisions are sutured close.

“My patients want to look like themselves, just restored. Most do not want a stretched, obvious look, and I create a restorative look, bringing them back 15-20 years. You won’t look odd or unnatural, just youthful.”

Facelift Options Available at Boulder Valley Laser and Cosmetic

Dr. Goldman is an expert surgeon with 20 years of experience in the industry!  He is proud to offer his clients a wide variety of facelift options. Not every person’s anti-aging needs are the same, which is why Dr. Goldman approaches each facelift differently to ensure the client’s unique needs are met and their goals are achieved.

Dr. Goldman offers the following facelift variations:

Mini Facelift: A mini facelift or mini lift is a less invasive version of the traditional facelift. This type of life is designed to address mild to moderate sagging and jowling in the lower face and neck. This procedure involves smaller incisions, typically around the ears or hairline. Dr. Goldman will tighten and reposition the underlying tissues, removing excess skin to achieve a more youthful look. Mini lifts have a shorter recovery time.

SMAS Facelift: SMAS or “Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System,” is a layer of tissue beneath the skin, including muscles and connective tissues. In an SMAS facelift, Dr. Goldman lifts and repositions the SMAS layer along with the skin. This method of facelift allows for a more comprehensive improvement to the mid-face, jowls, and neck. SMAS facelifts provide longer-lasting results when compared to skin-only facelifts because they address the deeper structures of the face. Incisions are made around the ears and hairline to access the SMAS layer easily.

Deep Plane Facelift: A deep plane facelift is an advanced technique involving repositioning deeper layers of tissues beneath the SMAS layer. The goals are to lift and reposition the skin and SMAS and the deeper structures of the face that sag as we age. This facelift technique allows for a more extensive rejuvenation of the mid-face and jawline while also providing significant and natural-looking results. The deep plane facelift is a more complex procedure, which may require a longer recovery.

Additional Surgical Add-ons to a Facelift

In addition to a facelift, Dr. Goldman offers a few additional surgeries, including:

  • Upper lid blepharoplasty
  • Lip lift
  • Otoplasty
  • Mentoplasty or chin augmentation

A deep neck lift is also available for patients during their facelift. This surgical option lifts the layers of the neck into a more youthful position. It achieves smooth definition, including the skin, muscle, fat, glands, and connective tissue. The effect is an attractive, defined, youthful-looking neck and jawline.

Facelift Results*

The results of your facelift are long-lasting, but it is important to keep in mind that aging occurs regardless of your facelift. While a Rhytidectomy can take countless years off your appearance, it does not stop the natural aging process. Most people are able to enjoy their facelift results for about a decade or 10 years, sometimes longer or shorter, depending on your body.*

As always, cosmetic surgery results vary drastically per person.* Each person is unique and requires a slightly different approach when receiving a facelift.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Facelift FAQs

People will often be able to tell you have had work done to your face in the weeks following surgery. You can expect to experience post-op swelling and bruising, often a telltale sign of a facelift. However, once those go away, most people will not be able to tell you have had any major work done. Rather, you will look more youthful and rejuvenated, and nothing too dramatic or unnatural.

To be a good candidate for a facelift, the soft tissue of the face and neck should sag with deep wrinkles, a double chin, or jowls. If your skin is not flexible or if you are overweight, this may not be the best procedure for you. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Goldman of Boulder Valley Laser and Cosmetic to determine if you are the best facelift candidate.
