Introduction to Facelifts

A Facelift, clinically known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the face and addressing signs of aging. This procedure targets sagging facial tissues, deep wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

What is a Facelift?

At BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery, a facelift performed by Dr. Samir Hasan involves a meticulous cosmetic surgical procedure tailored to rejuvenate the face and neck, aiming to diminish visible signs of aging. Dr. Samir  Hasan carefully removes excess facial skin, tightens underlying tissues, and may address fat redistribution to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Through precise techniques and personalized care, Dr. Samir Hasan strives to smooth wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and enhance overall facial contours, ultimately providing patients with natural-looking and satisfying results.

How Does a Facelift Work?

During a Facelift at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery, incisions are strategically made, typically along the hairline, around the ears, or under the chin, depending on the specific technique used. Through these incisions, Dr. Samir Hasan tightens and repositions underlying facial tissues, removes excess skin, and re-drapes the skin for a smoother and firmer appearance. This process helps reduce wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls, resulting in a more youthful look.

Types of Facelifts

Traditional Facelift

This procedure addresses sagging skin and wrinkles in the lower face and neck by lifting and tightening underlying muscles and tissues. Incisions are typically made along the hairline, extending around the ears.

Mini Facelift

A less invasive version of the traditional facelift, the mini facelift focuses on the lower half of the face, particularly the jawline and jowls. It involves smaller incisions and is ideal for mild to moderate sagging.


Targeting the middle portion of the face, this procedure addresses sagging cheeks and nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth). It involves lifting and repositioning tissues in the cheek area through incisions around the temples or lower eyelids.

SMAS Facelift

This technique involves lifting and tightening the deeper facial tissues (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) to achieve longer-lasting results. It’s often combined with the traditional facelift for comprehensive rejuvenation.

Benefits of a Facelift

A Facelift procedure effectively restores and enhances facial contours by addressing sagging skin, creating a more defined jawline, and tightening facial tissues for a rejuvenated appearance.

Reduction of Wrinkles and Lines

The surgery targets wrinkles, creases, and folds, particularly around the cheeks, mouth, and jawline, resulting in a smoother and more youthful facial surface.

Restoration of Youthful Appearance
