Your face is the first thing that people see when they meet you, and we understand how important a good first impression can be. To help you look and feel your most radiant, facial plastic surgery procedures such as facelift, browlift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and facial fillers are offered by Colorado Springs doctor Alfred Speirs.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Speirs at the Speirs Clinic for Plastic Surgery, you can discuss any or all of these treatments to determine which ones might be right for you.
A facelift can improve both your appearance and your outlook on life. This procedure can minimize imperfections such as hanging jowls, double chins, fat deposits in the neck, and wrinkles between the mouth and nose.
The facelift procedure - also called a rhytidectomy - must be designed to fit your unique bone structure, skin texture and muscle tone. Dr. Speirs carefully plans the tailoring of your facelift procedure at our Colorado Springs office.
Dr. Speirs performs the traditional facelift for most of his Colorado Springs patients, which has been trusted for years to produce wonderful results. Most of the face, as well as the neck, can be dramatically rejuvenated with a facelift; muscles are tightened and excess skin is removed for a fresh, younger look. In many cases, the effects of a facelift are enhanced by combining the surgery with other procedures such as liposuction, browlift, or eyelid surgery.
To increase the rate at which you heal after your facelift surgery, you will be provided with an overnight stay at one of our premier recovery facilities. These state-of-the-art facilities offer the expertise of registered nurses for the ultimate in post-operative care.
It is important to remember that a facelift is an involved cosmetic surgery procedure; as such, patients need to allow sufficient healing time and be prepared for some discomfort in the days following surgery.
After a couple of weeks, the initial bruising and swelling will subside and you will begin to be able to see the beautiful results of your facelift. Your new, more youthful appearance will last for many years; however, your skin will continue to age. To maintain the fresh appearance desired by so many of our patients, the Speirs Clinic for Plastic Surgery can recommend an ongoing skin care program including laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion.
Contact the practice of Dr. Speirs today for more information about the unique facelift procedure offered at our Colorado Springs facility. As a remarkable plastic surgeon with considerable expertise, Dr. Speirs has developed a special facelift technique that accelerates healing and minimizes bruising.
Browlift surgery lifts drooping eyebrows, smoothes wrinkled foreheads and can remove scowl lines between the eyebrows.
Our patients frequently request browlift surgery at our Colorado Springs clinic. It is one of the least painful and least complicated cosmetic procedures.
Drooping eyebrows, prominent forehead lines and creases above the nose can make you look tired, sad, angry, or older than you truly are. Usually caused by weight loss or gain, sun exposure, or heredity, these wrinkles can be reduced or even eliminated with a browlift, also called a forehead lift.
By raising the eyebrows to a higher position on the face, Dr. Speirs can restore a more youthful expression and reduce the lines and wrinkles that have accumulated on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
Patients may experience some swelling and bruising after a browlift, which disappears in about a week. Patients should not exercise or perform strenuous activities for four to six weeks.
Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Speirs may choose one of several different techniques, including coronal browlift, lateral browlift, or endoscopic browlift. Often, our patients will choose to combine a browlift with other facial cosmetic procedures, such as eyelid surgery, facelift, dermal fillers, or BOTOX Cosmetic injections.

As we age, the eyelids sag, and puffy bags can form below the eyes. This makes you look tired and older. We perform eyelid surgery at our Colorado Springs clinic to improve these problems.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, can restore the skin around the eyes to a more youthful appearance.
Eyelid surgery begins with an incision along the upper or lower eyelids. Excess fat, muscle, and skin are trimmed away. This outpatient procedure, which typically takes one to two hours, is performed under local or general anesthesia and gives long-lasting results. For patients with bags under the eyes but no significant skin wrinkling, transconjunctival blepharoplasty can be performed to remove the excess fat that causes the bags; this method of eyelid surgery avoids the creation of external scars.
Because eyelid surgery removes the visible signs of aging around the eyes, your skin will look tighter and firmer and the bags under the eyes will be eliminated. That tired look will be gone and you will look well-rested and appear years younger.
Shortly after completion of the eyelid surgery, you can leave our Colorado Springs clinic. You can expect some temporary side effects after surgery, including bruising and swelling.
If you think you might benefit from one of the eyelid surgery techniques offered by our clinic in Colorado Springs, contact the practice of Dr. Alfred Speirs today.
Dr. Speirs can sculpt the nose you've always wanted with rhinoplasty. After helping so many Colorado Springs area patients, Dr. Speirs has gained extensive skill in many different nose reshaping techniques. Through rhinoplasty, Dr. Speirs can narrow the nostrils, diminish bumps on the nose bridge, reshape the tip, increase the size of certain areas, and alter the angle between the nose and the lower lip.
The rhinoplasty procedure begins with Dr. Speirs making incisions just inside the nostrils, near the rims; this inconspicuous incision placement means that any scars are virtually invisible. If Dr. Speirs is performing a reduction of bone or cartilage, the tissue is removed from inside the nose, again helping to minimize scarring.
Patients undergoing rhinoplasty can leave our Colorado Springs clinic shortly after the surgery is completed. Dr. Speirs will give you complete instructions for quick recovery.
If you have questions about whether rhinoplasty is right for you, contact plastic surgeon Alfred Speirs today.
Ear surgery, also called otoplasty, can reduce the appearance of large or protruding ears. Many people, especially children, suffer from low self-esteem because of the size of their ears.
Otoplasty serves to resize the ears, making them smaller and setting them back closer to the head.
Otoplasty is most commonly performed on children and teens. It cannot be performed on children under the age of 5, though, because their ears are still growing. Older patients can benefit from otoplasty, as well. Because it is safe and very effective, ear pinning has helped to improve the self-confidence and appearance of millions of Americans through the years.
The otoplasty procedure begins with Dr. Speirs making an incision in the crease behind the ear. He removes a small wedge of cartilage, and then sutures the remaining cartilage together. This results in the ear lying closer to the head. Patients usually can leave the clinic shortly after the procedure. For most patients, otoplasty proves to be an effective and safe means of improving the appearance of their ears.
If your chin seems disproportionately small, explore the option of chin implant surgery. A chin implant can add balance to your face, improving your attractiveness and confidence.
Chin augmentation is the surgical contouring of an undersized chin. An implant, inserted through an incision made under the chin, can alter the shape of the chin, making it appear stronger or more suitable to the patient's face. Chin augmentation is often performed at the same time as rhinoplasty to add better balance to facial features.
Choosing to permanently alter the appearance of your face is a decision that should not be made lightly. Dr. Speirs wants to make sure that you receive as much information as possible about your cosmetic surgery procedure, whether you choose to undergo a facelift, browlift, eyelid surgery, or rhinoplasty.
