Dr. Broadway and his bodevolve partner are 1 of 5 plastic surgery facilities in the nation to offer their facial cosmetic surgery patients the newest, minimally invasive laser assisted facelift, the SmartLift™.
This unique facial procedure utilizes laser technology by Cynosure, the same laser used in body contouring and lipo procedures, to heat tissue under the skin allowing for skin tightening through tissue coagulation. Patients who find they have more laxity in their face and neck can combine this treatment with an over the skin laser resurfacing treatment such as the Profractional. By lasering the skin from both sides patients can expect skin tightening similar to that of a mini facelift.
The SmartLift™ can be performed under local anesthetic, smaller incisions are made, and is a great option for patients in their late forties, or patients who have acne scarring.

What is Power Assisted Lipo or PAL?
Power Assisted Lipo features a special device on the cannula which uses tiny, rapid vibrations to break up the fat and allow for easier suction. The PAL system allows the surgeon to be more precise with fat removal and allows for a faster procedure. For the patient, it provides a safer procedure and a shorter recovery because the surgeon is having to use less force to break up fatty tissue.
Dr. Broadway supports and offers his Denver lipo patients Power Assisted Lipo. He believes the continuous, fast vibration is more gentle on the patients tissue because it loosens the fat cells, similar to when you shake a tree and the leaves fall off, allowing him to effortlessly suction the fat away. Dr. Broadway’s patients can expect smaller incisions and a reduced recovery time because he will target and remove specific fat without damaging surrounding tissue. The specialized PAL tip can also shorten the surgery time which is always appealing to patients.
