In recent posts, we’ve taken the opportunity to highlight LaseMD and BOTOX®. Though the two alternatives to cosmetic surgery have similarities, we’d encourage you to discover the unique details of each in the two separate posts. 

Be sure to keep in mind that both treatments are available at Front Range Plastic Surgery in Loveland, CO! Dr. Schutte and the rest of our staff are proud to serve Northern Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska from our office in Loveland, CO

Facial Procedures

Our focus now shifts to a distinct set of cosmetic procedures — facial treatments. Our facial procedures are comprised of Facelifts, Eyelid Surgeries, and Brow Lifts. Today’s post will provide a general overview of each facial procedure we offer at Front Range Plastic Surgery. Please keep in mind that everything we do is for the ultimate purpose of bringing our patients an improved sense of beauty, wholeness, confidence, and balance. We are passionate about putting our experience and knowledge to good use, and that’s exactly why we have chosen to highlight our facial procedures in today’s blog, part of a two-part series on the matter! 

Facelift Surgery In Northern Colorado

Gravity, daily stress, and exposure to the sun all take their toll on us. As we age, you can begin to see signs of stress appear in the form of facial wrinkles; you’ll find creases between the nose and mouth, the jawline becomes more jowly . . . the list goes on. 

Candidates

Most of us are familiar with such signs, whether we have experienced them personally or not. What fewer of us have a knowledge of is determining who is a candidate for a facelift. Best candidates for facelifts are men or women who have begun to see the skin on their face and neck sag, but still have some elasticity. Age is not as important of a factor, as we have plenty of facelift patients who are well into their 70s and 80s.

Eyelid Surgery

Also known as upper or lower blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery removes skin from both the lower and upper eyelids. This is done to correct drooping upper lids and those unfortunate, puffy bags that can form underneath the eyes. Because these features can make you appear older, more tired, and can even impair your vision, eyelid surgery is often worthwhile to consider. 

It’s also worth noting what eyelid surgery does not accomplish. While it can be quite effective in eliminating puffy bags and drooping lids, eyelid surgery will not affect crow’s feet or other such wrinkles. Neither will it remove dark circles under eyes or lift eyebrows that sag. 

Candidates

While eyelid surgery is often most beneficial for its capacity to enhance your appearance and self-confidence, keep in mind that it won’t necessarily change your looks in a dramatic fashion. That’s why we’d encourage you to think carefully about your goals before you make your decision. Typically, ideal candidates are 35 years old or older, and are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and grounded in reality regarding their expectations. 

We’d encourage you to take advantage of your complimentary consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Schutte, at your convenience. He is adept in discussing options with our patients so that all Front Range Plastic Surgery patients are confident and secure about the choice in the procedure they have made.
