The individuality of the human face fascinates me.


Specializing in face and neck cosmetic procedures, Dr. Brent J. Smith knows that rejuvenating a person’s face can do wonders for someone’s appearance. Through his fellowship training and years of experience, he has achieved the maximum level of expertise in facial surgical procedures. “My goal is to have people look like themselves, just better, without an operated look,” says the dedicated, veteran surgeon. His Rapid Recovery Program™ promotes faster postoperative healing for both body and mind. The process includes hyperbaric oxygen to speed healing, Cynosure Photogenica® V-star laser applications to reduce redness and light-only Omnilux™ treatments to assist in skin regeneration.

About My Practice

What about your experience sets you apart?

I limit my practice to the face and neck and have performed more than 10,000 facial cosmetic procedures. I have also been featured twice in People magazine and was chosen as Denver's 'Extreme Makeover' facial plastic surgeon.

What is unique about your approach?

All of my procedures are performed under local anesthesia. No general anesthesia is required.

How does your staff contribute to the care you provide?

My staff and I develop ongoing patient relationships through multiple preoperative meetings. We work hard to establish a supportive environment.

About Me

What fascinates you most about the human face?

You'd think that with several billion people in the world, you'd get a great deal of patients with the same aesthetic concerns, but everyone is different.

What is your favorite part of your job?

The hugs and smiles I get from patients after surgery are very rewarding.

How would you like to be remembered?

I'd like to be remembered as a man of integrity and excellence.

A Minute With

  1. Career-defining procedure

    My career hasn’t been defined by
    one single procedure, but rather
    the ability to combine procedures
    to achieve harmony and the most
    natural-looking results

  2. Three words that best describe you

    Compassionate, humble, humorous

  3. Your patient care philosophy

    I meet with each patient at the beginning of the process, starting with the consultation and staying connected until the last visit post-surgery

  4. Your greatest achievements

    Performing more than 10,000 facial cosmetic procedures, being featured
    twice in People magazine and being chosen as Denver’s “Extreme Makeover” facial plastic surgeon

  5. My motto

    You make a living with
    what you get, you make
    a life with what you give

  6. What sets your practice apart

    We work hard to establish a supportive environment by building relationships with our patients through many preoperative meetings

  7. What are you best known for?

    My compassion that comes through
    my faith, which plays a tremendous
    role in my life and in many ways,
    defines who I am as an individual
    and a surgeon. People are often
    surprised to learn that I begin each
    morning by praying for the patients
    that I will be seeing that day

  8. How are you helping to advance the field at large?

    The field of facial plastic surgery
    advances when we provide patients
    with consistently natural-looking
    results and compassionate care

  9. What one surgical advancement are you most excited about right now?

    Fat transfers can add youthful
    contours and extend the life of a
    facelift by offering additional
    support to the elevated muscle

  10. Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?

    The greatest fear patients have about
    plastic surgery is looking like they’ve
    had plastic surgery. All of my patients
    want to look like themselves, only
    better. This is why I insist on meeting
    a potential patient one-on-one
    during their initial consultation to
    understand their goals and help
    to lay their fears to rest as I explain
    the procedures and expected outcome


  • Mini-Facelift
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Browlift
  • Fat Grafting
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
  • Rapid Recovery Program
  • Botox
  • Juvederm
  • Radiesse


  1. What is the average recovery time for fat transfer to correct under eye hallows?
    What our experts say:

    The average time for recovery from fat transfer to the lower eyes is approximately one week.  Certainly this is variable based on ones tendency to bruise.  The lower eyelid area is quite vascular, but the fat should be placed directly adjacent to the bone and this will often decrease the chance for bruising.  We recommend that patients be off aspirin and other products that can increase bleeding for two weeks prior to the procedure.
    We feel that the procedure is quite safe when done by an experienced doctor with a good understanding of the anatomy around the eyes.  The fat transfer is semi-permanent and the results can be expected to be long lasting.

  2. About Juvederm Filler
    What our experts say:

    With regards to the question about the Juvederm:  The depression in the left check is probably an illusion because  of the filler placed nearby.  There would be no way for Juvederm to cause a loss of volume unless the area became infected after the injection.  Additional Juvederm to the area that appears depressed would likely be helpful.  As the Juvederm is resorbed, the check will go back to its pre-injection status.  This will occur over a 9-12 month period.

  3. Are nurse practioners as qualified for laser treatment as MD
    What our experts say:

    My recommendation regarding a nurse practitioner doing lasers is that I would use a nurse practitioner that has an MD on site and try to talk to other patients would have had a similar treatment to that which you desire.

  4. Does it makes sense to travel to a less expensive location for a face lift? I wonder about follow up care etc. I live in Hawaii where things are very expensive! Thank you.
    What our experts say:

    Travel to a less expensive place for surgery is fraught with potential problems.  If there is a problem, who would take care of you. I would try to find a qualified surgeon in your area and develop a relationship there.  Regarding the type of facelift that is needed, a detailed consultation with the surgeon is paramount.  I would avoid the franchise lifts where you only meet with a sales consultant and meet the doctor only after payment is made.  This is your face and you can't cover bad work with a blouse or slacks.

  5. Does a chemical peel reduce wrinkles?
    What our experts say:

    While chemical peels can be effective for removal of wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, I feel that laser treatments are more predictable and offer the chance for the best results.

"I am SO happy we went to Dr. Smith. Our daughter had a procedure, and when it's your kid, you want everything to go as well as possible. We'd seen 4 other surgeons but it didn't just click. But Dr. Smith was so kind, he took lots of time, he showed us pictures (even during-surgery pictures), he gave us a realistic version of what could happen. He talked with our daughter like she was an adult. His staff is so kind, patient, knowledgable. They want to make sure you know everything you should about what you're doing. It's not a decision to take lightly. We had the surgery done there, I called the office 3 times that evening to ask questions, they were so patient and understanding. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Smith and his staff."
