Historically, there has been a virtual line in the sand between men and cosmetic treatments. Procedures like facelifts, liposuction, and just about everything else that the average woman was able to obtain were off-limits to men; not a “manly” thing to do. Fortunately, our perception of male grooming and what that can entail has […]
Throughout history, we can find substantial evidence of our love for full, luscious lips. For those who were not born with this trait, which many of us weren’t, there has historically been very little hope of changing things. The invention of dermal fillers has created a world of possibility, though. In our Denver office […]
The eyes get watery sometimes, but the production of tears should not become a nuisance. The eyes typically make enough tears to keep the ocular surface moist, and they also have natural drainage tubes that clear old fluid out to make way for new tears. There are several reasons why tears may build up […]
The thyroid gland is small, but rather complex. The hormones and other chemicals produced in this gland need to be in balance for functional health. An overactive thyroid gland can cause a number of concerns, including thyroid eye disease (a complication of Grave’s disease). When abnormal function in the thyroid gland affects the eyes, […]
According to the annual report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 209,000 blepharoplasties were performed last year. This eyelid-rejuvenating procedure has ranked in the top five cosmetic surgeries for the past several years. Seeing that a simple eyelid lift can refresh the entire face, it’s hard to find a reason to […]
Blepharoplasty has quickly become one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures. It’s easy to see why. Correcting age-related laxity in the eyelids has a way of brightening the entire face. The results of blepharoplasty are indefinite, meaning that the eyes never go back to how they were before surgery but will continue to age […]
Body contouring is one of the most active areas of aesthetic medicine. Even before the development of non-surgical modalities like CoolSculpting, it was popular to refine body shape with liposuction and abdominoplasty. In our Denver office, body contouring is frequently performed to help patients naturally reduce body fat in areas of concern.
CoolSculpting may be […]
Cellulitis is a type of infection that usually affects the skin. This infection can occur anywhere on the body, including around the eyes. When cellulitis develops in the eye area, it is vital that an accurate diagnosis is obtained. Two types of cellulitis may appear to affect the eyelid: preseptal cellulitis and orbital cellulitis. […]
Lines anywhere on the face can be a frustrating problem. We often discuss how to treat frown lines with Botox or how a brow lift can reduce worry lines on the forehead, but we shouldn’t forget that the lower face is especially prone to deep creases over time. What we call laugh lines really […]
Even in light of the recent advances in aesthetic medicine, facelift surgery continues to be one of the Top 10 procedures performed each year. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons annual report has revealed that more than 125,000 patients underwent facelift surgery last year. Of those, 15% of patients were men.
We are proud to […]
