How can I tell what facelift procedure is right for me?

The facelift procedure that is right for you will to be based on your aesthetic desires. There are several types of facelifts, and our Northern Colorado plastic surgeon is adamant that one of the most important things you should consider is how much improvement you would like to see. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gonyon will discuss the benefits, drawbacks, complications and results you can expect from each facelift procedure.

What is a deep-plane facelift?

A deep-plane facelift lifts all of the structural components of your face during one surgical operation, including tightening both your facial muscles and skin. The benefit of this type of lift is that your results will be much longer lasting than the facelift methods that are less invasive.

Do you offer mini-facelifts?

Dr. Gonyon offers a range of facelifts, and based on your desires will help you choose the right procedure. There are several clinics that advertise for the mini-facelift or "lifestyle" lifts. The mini-facelift is a less invasive procedure that focuses on tightening the skin. Although this is less invasive and less expensive, a mini-facelift also should be expected to last for 2 years before you see signs of facial aging. Depending on the results you want to achieve, Dr. Gonyon may recommend a deep plane facelift or SMAS tightening that will have longevity the others do not. 

Is a brow lift considered a facelift?

A brow lift will raise the skin on your forehead into a more natural, youthful position. In the process, creases and wrinkles will be eliminated. A brow lift can be combined with a facelift procedure, but alone cannot address areas of your face below your brow bone.

Do you offer a nonsurgical facelift options?

Dr. Gonyon offers a majority of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options. There is no such thing as a nonsurgical facelift, however, there are many facial rejuvenation procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvéderm® dermal fillers that can achieve a youthful appearance on a temporary basis.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Gonyon will discuss your options with you to help you make an informed decision on which procedure is best for the results you are looking to achieve.
