Facelifts are Dr. Khoury’s true passion and expertise. Over Dr. Khoury’s career the facelift procedure is the surgery he has performed most providing patients with amazing and natural results. Performing the facelift procedure under local anesthesia allows for these results with a very quick recovery.

Terminology and discussions related to facelifts are very confusing and sometimes misunderstood. This is why there is no substitute for an in-person consultation, which will allow for a detailed explanation of this procedure. This will also provide Dr. Khoury with the opportunity to specifically tailor the discussion to apply to the features of each individual patient’s features.


Facelifts are intended to address lower face and neck aging changes, which include:

  • Jowls
  • Loss of jawline definition
  • Neck laxity
  • Neck bands
  • Loss of profile definition.
  • Wrinkles
  • Certain facial creases
  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Excess skin

Every patient is different and presents with different signs of aging which is why it is important to assess each face individually. The culprit of most of these aging changes are the muscular support structures under the skin; the SMAS and platysma muscles. Therefore, any facelift – no matter what it is called – must address these muscles.

Mini lift, neck lift, lower facelift, SMAS facelift, and deep plane facelifts are all essentially similar procedures with some specific variations that separate them from each other. The common feature is the ability to address the underlying support muscles and their attachments. Therefore, depending on the patient’s age and aging features, the best facelift option can be selected to give the best possible result.

Anatomically, the lower face and neck are tied together structurally. While both neck lift and facelift surgeries focus on getting rid of sagging skin and creating a smoother and more defined appearance, a facelift focuses on the lower portion of the face, where neck lift surgery refines and rejuvenates the appearance of the neck only. Dr. Khoury typically does a deep plane facelift in conjunction with a necklift to give patients the best result.

Occasionally, patients will present with an aging lower face without other signs of aging in the neck. Although rare, patients that are candidates for face lift only are usually due to weight loss, genetics, or previous facial procedures that may have contributed to the lower face prematurely sagging.

Dr. Khoury is an expert in deep plane facelifts and has performed over 3,000 of these surgeries. The deep plane facelift is the “gold standard” of all facelifts. It produces the most natural and long-lasting results. Dr. Khoury is the only surgeon in Colorado to perform deep plane facelifts under local anesthesia which allows for a quicker and safer recovery. What really separates Dr. Khoury from the rest is his ability to apply the Smartlifting technology to the deep plane facelifts, this allows patient to look good and presentable within 7-10 days after surgery. Applying ultrasound or laser technology during certain parts of the procedure results in less swelling and minimal bruising. Most of Dr. Khoury’s patient are able to reintegrate into society a week or less after their procedure. Dr. Khoury has been performing facelifts in conjunction with the Smartlifting technology for over 13 years and is one of only a few in the world who do this. Due to his expertise in his field and this technology, Dr. Khoury was able to successfully establish a satellite practice in Dubai, which has allowed him to offer this unique variant of a deep plane facelift to patients from all over the world.

During your complimentary consultation Dr. Khoury will review your facial concerns along with your facial structure, he will explain the procedures in detail, ensuring you have all the information you need.
