Denver, Colorado is no longer a Wild West town. It has become a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city with a large population. Noted for its breathtaking scenery, clean quality of air and water and especially its winter sports, it is not surprising to find a great number of cosmetic plastic surgeons in its medical rosters, thanks in part to the University of Colorado-Denver School of Medicine, the only one of its kind within a 500 mile radius. The school has a Division of Plastic Surgery, providing the area with the best and brightest of its graduates in the field of plastic surgery.
Many of the citizens living in Denver stay in shape with exercise and diet, but when they need a little extra help, they seek out the qualified expertise of a cosmetic surgeon. Many of Denver’s plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons practice within the confines of traditional offices that have the look and feel of mini-hospitals. Then there are those who have jumped into the trend of clinics that specialize in cosmetic surgery, such a body sculpting that includes liposuction, tummy tucks, eyelid and face lifts, skin peels, laser skin treatments and other procedures that can be done on an out-patient basis, where the patient comes in early and remains for the day, then goes home. This type of cosmetic surgical clinic has been exceedingly successful across the country.
With many tourists coming to the area for the sports and for health reasons, the attraction of these more aesthetically appealing clinics creates a demand for cosmetic surgical procedures.
The more highly invasive plastic surgical procedures that might include weight loss reduction and reconstructive cosmetic surgery such as cosmetic dentistry and reconstruction of face and body due to trauma, are most definitely done in hospitals in the area.
