Cosmetic surgery focuses on enhancing one’s appearance by improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion. Cosmetic facial plastic surgery can be performed on all areas of the face and neck. Dr. Geoffrey Ferril is a fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and an assistant professor with the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He has extensive training and clinical experience in all aesthetic procedures of the face and neck.
Our nose is located front and center. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or function of your nose, a rhinoplasty can help improve the balance, form, and harmony of your nose and face. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure involving reshaping or repairing the nose. It can be done for medical reasons, such as to improve nasal breathing, or cosmetically to change the nose’s shape and appearance.
Dr. Ferril will evaluate the structure of your nose and other facial features and formulate an individualized surgical plan. Rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. Following the procedure, a nasal cast will support and protect your newly shaped nose for the first week. While it is possible to experience swelling and bruising that can take time to resolve, the results are permanent!
Our eyes are usually the first thing that people notice about us and often the first part of our face to show the signs of aging. Hooded upper eyelids and puffy bags below the eyes age the face and can cause one to appear overly tired. Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids and removing or repositioning fat from the lower eyelids along with tightening of the underlying muscles.
Blepharoplasty is performed by Dr. Ferril either in the office under local anesthesia or in an outpatient facility under general anesthesia. Following healing from the procedure, one can expect a more youthful, rested, and alert appearance of the eyes.
If you are bothered by expression lines or other signs of aging in the brow and forehead region, a brow lift may be right for you. A brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes. It improves frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows, and can reposition a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid, raising the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position.
A brow lift is a surgical, cosmetic procedure done in an outpatient, surgical facility under general anesthesia, often performed in conjunction with a blepharoplasty. Dr. Ferril most commonly performs this procedure endoscopically, meaning with the use of cameras, to minimize visible incisions and healing time. During your consultation, Dr. Ferril will evaluate and discuss your desired results to best give you a refreshed appearance.
Face and Neck Lift
As we age, the appearance of the face and neck is altered due to multiple factors, including sun exposure, loss of collagen and elastin, and fat, bone and muscle changes. A face or neck lift improves the most visible signs of aging by improving sagging cheeks, deep facial creases, jowling, and neck changes. Dr. Ferril performs his face and neck lifts in a contemporary and research-supported fashion, using the muscular layer to help achieve more natural and long-lasting results
During a consult with Dr. Ferril, he will customize an individual treatment plan with you to ensure you receive your desired outcome. Done in an outpatient facility under general anesthesia, a face or neck lift will help to create a more rejuvenated and youthful you.
