In a traditional facial rejuvenation procedure, such as a mini-lift or facelift, the technology and approach used is decades old. While the results are still amazing, whatâ€™s really amazing is that there hasnâ€™t been any recent technological developments that can improve results, and reduce discomfort and recovery time. Until now.
Smartliftingâ„˘ is the newest and most exciting facelifting technique to be introduced in over 20 years.Â The procedure involves the Smartlipo laser, made by Cynosure. The Smartlipo machine is an advanced laser system originally developed for advanced liposuction and skin tightening treatment on the neck and the rest of the body. However, the use of this technology on the face has just been appreciated. SmartLiftingT describes these laser-assisted facelifts, and Dr. Khoury is one of only five surgeons in the U.S. performing this technique. He will also be one of the few official instructors of this revolutionary new procedure, with initial courses being offered in Denver, Dubai, and Bogota, Colombia.
In SmartLiftingâ„˘, the doctor applies the SmartLipo laser underneath the skin, using it to manipulate skin and muscle tissue, as opposed to laser skin resurfacing in which the laser is applied to the outer surface.Â This approach makes the facelift procedure dramatically less invasive than a traditional procedure, which provides the patients with multitude of additional benefits, including better results.Â Nothing this new has been introduced technologically in face lifting for close to 20 years.
Smartliftingâ„˘Â combines proven aesthetic principles with a new advanced technology that provides a wide range of benefits to the patient. These include:
The key is how the procedureâ€™s minimally invasive nature eliminates a number of risk factors associated with traditional facelifts. For example, the procedure can be done with local anesthesia, compared to general anesthesia required for a traditional full facelift, which is much more risky for a patient.Â Also, the time needed for the procedure is greatly reduced. The non-surgical method can be performed in less than one hour.Â The laser-assisted form can take slightly longer, but nothingÂ compared to the up to 5 hours it can take for a general surgical facelift procedure.Â These factors, along with a number of others, all add up toÂ a procedure that is safer, more comfortable, and will produce better results.
Perhaps the biggest benefit to a patient that Smartliftingâ„˘ can provide is peace of mind. Because along with amazing procedural benefits, the treatment allows you and centers such as Denver Cosmetic Surgery to focus on one simple goal: the best result possible for you.
You see, patients often come to our center thinking they need a full facelift. Or a forehead lift. Or a mini lift. Theyâ€™ve done some research, contacted some centers, and they feel that this is the best treatment option for their desire and their budget.
But in reality, the patient may be completely misinformed as to what option(s) are best for their unique facial features, and their desired result. Thatâ€™s what makes Smartlifitingâ„˘ so beneficial to our patients. Why?
When compared to general facial rejuvenation procedures at other centers, there really is no comparison. The results are better, the recovery faster, and the procedure more affordable.
All this added up means you can come to our center with a confidence and an understanding that all thatâ€™s left is choosing the right treatment plan thatâ€™s best for your unique features, and best for your desired results.
SmartLiftingâ„˘ can be applied in three different ways to help address almost all issues related to aging in the face:

Laser Facial Sculptingâ„˘ is the least invasive approach. The laser from the Smartlipo machine heats the skin from underneath and then combined with selective liposuction to specific areas of the face. The use of the laser allows for skin tightening through tissue coagulation. In patients with skin changes due to actinic sun damage or possesing additional facial and neck laxity, a fractional laser is used for skin resurfacing from the outside surface. Essentially, the skin is lasered from both sides; an inside and outside treatment. This provides for further skin contraction than simply using the laser on the outer surface.
These procedures are performed with local anesthetic, and the incisions are very small — usually two to three small 1 cm incisions, which are also very well-hidden. It is a great option for patients in their early-to-late forties and for patients with acne scars, especially patients who do not want any facial incisions.
UltraMiniLiftâ„˘ is a laser-assisted mini-lift. The Smartlipo laser is used to perform the procedure through a very short incision. It usually takes less than an hour and is also done with local anesthetic. Candidates will have more pronounced signs of aging, but not so severe as to merit a more aggressive lift. Compared to a traditional mini-lift, the benefits include less bruising, speedier recovery, and most importantly, better results with additional skin tightening.

Laser SmartLift is a laser-assisted facelift that delivers a full facelift result with less associated trauma. In addition, it usually addresses the neck along with the face. In this setting the maximum benefits of the technology surface. From a surgeonâ€™s standpoint, it drastically improves the ease with which the surgery is performed. From a patientâ€™s standpoint, amazing full facelift results are achieved in a more minimal setting.
SmartLiftingâ„˘ promises to revolutionize facelifts. Dr. Khoury and his team are proud to be the first to introduce it to Denver and soon to the rest of the country and the world.
