Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation

Many of our patients considering facelift surgery can benefit from combining other surgical and nonsurgical procedures to create an overall refreshed appearance. A facelift addresses only the lower part of the face, including nasolabial folds and jowls, but facial aging rarely occurs in just one area. As a double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Denver, CO, Dr. Keith Ladner is uniquely qualified to assess your concerns and recommend the appropriate procedures to achieve your cosmetic goals.

What Are the Goals of Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation?

It’s common to read or hear plastic surgeons say that one of the primary goals of facial rejuvenation—or other elective procedures—is to create results that look natural. That is true but doesn’t encompass the changes that patients want—the return on their investment, to use a business phrase.

Dr. Ladner’s vision for facial rejuvenation procedures is to create results that people notice and compliment without being able to pinpoint exactly why someone looks so good for his or her age. His goal is to have patients look like themselves but refreshed and rejuvenated—a better version of themselves.

Combining Facial Rejuvenation Procedures

Signs of aging may develop at various stages in different areas of the face. They may require both surgical and nonsurgical procedures to create harmonious, natural-looking results. Think of what happens when you remodel one area of your house, such as the kitchen, and how the dining room or living room then appears dated. The same is true for faces. A facelift may draw attention to droopy eyelids, a sagging brow, or sun-damaged skin.

Dr. Ladner ensures your concerns will be addressed with a customized approach that considers your unique facial anatomy, aging pattern, and skin quality. Procedures that Dr. Ladner may recommend that produce comprehensive rejuvenation results include:

Your specific facial rejuvenation plan is customized to create harmonious, natural-looking results that help you look and feel your best.

Why It’s Important to Choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon

When double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ladner meets with patients for an initial consultation, he spends at least an hour with them to ensure he clearly understands their concerns and their aesthetic goals. He has earned a reputation as one of the top facial plastic surgeons in Denver and throughout the Rocky Mountain region due to his comprehensive and systematic approach to evaluating the faces and necks of his patients.

A facial plastic surgeon understands the relationship between different features and can recommend the specific procedures needed to accomplish the patient’s goals. The aging process doesn’t occur uniformly for all people, and patients who think they need facelift surgery may be best served with BOTOX® or filler injections. Dr. Ladner presents the options for facial rejuvenation only after a thorough consultation.

What Happens During a Facial Rejuvenation Consultation?

One of the keys to producing exceptional results is to thoroughly understand what led a patient to seek facial plastic surgery. Have they always been self-conscious about specific features, or are their concerns related specifically to aging? If they’ve never been happy with these areas, Dr. Ladner examines the underlying bone structure to assist in developing a surgical plan. The staff takes several photos of the patient, which Dr. Ladner also uses after completing his examination to assess the entire face and neck starting from the top.

He systematically documents measurements and observations and explains in detail his finding to patients, so they understand his recommendations and why he uses specific techniques

Facial Rejuvenation FAQs

Can I combine BOTOX with a facelift?

Absolutely. Dr. Ladner may recommend adding nonsurgical treatments such as BOTOX or fillers for facelift or neck lift patients if he doesn’t believe plastic surgery is necessary to address signs of aging in other areas. For example, BOTOX injections can improve the appearance of crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes or temporarily create a lifted appearance to the forehead. Fillers injected below the eyes are a nonsurgical alternative to lower eyelid surgery.

Will plastic surgery eliminate age spots?

Procedures such as a facelift aren’t designed to eliminate age spots, but nonsurgical procedures combined with surgery can rejuvenate your overall appearance. Dr. Ladner may recommend laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel to minimize sun damage and enhance the skin’s tone on the face, neck, or chest.

Can I get a neck lift without a facelift?

Even though facelift surgery is often combined with a neck lift, some patients benefit from a neck lift alone. The neck is often one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging, and tightening the skin and underlying muscles creates definition on the chin and jawline without the additional incisions needed for a facelift. Sometimes called a platysmaplasty, a neck lift is also a good solution for people with vertical neck bands.

Do I need upper eyelid surgery or a brow lift?

This is a common question that patients ask Dr. Ladner and post in online forums such as RealSelf. The only way to get an accurate answer is through an in-person consultation. The goal of both procedures is to create a more alert and youthful appearance. Sagging upper eyelids can make people look sleepy and, in some cases, interfere with their vision. A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is needed for patients with forehead lines and “heavy” brows that may also be causing upper eyelids to appear saggy.
