Dr. Cory Torgerson has conducted successful facelift surgeries in his state-of-the-art, surgical centre in downtown Toronto for many years. He would be able to assess whether this type of surgery is the best solution to rejuvenate your appearance or whether there is another treatment that would best suit your needs. For example, many young people convince themselves that a facelift is necessary, whereas Dr. Torgerson would probably recommend a non-surgical facial treatment to offset the aging process.
Once it has been determined that a face lift is your best solution, it is essential that you are aware of the risks associated with this type of major surgery. The most prevalent risk with any surgery is infection. Dr. Torgerson’s private surgery centre takes every precaution to ensure that the strictest guidelines required by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) are adhered to. His professional staff go above and beyond to maintain the highest standards regarding cleanliness in the facility, the operating theatre, and the sterilization of equipment. Medication is also prescribed to minimize the risk of infection in the client as well. It is important to note that it is in the patient’s best interest to follow Dr. Torgerson’s post-op instructions explicitly.
Many facial nerves are agitated during surgery. If nerve injury occurs, it can result in impairment when chewing, talking, or blinking after the operation. Although permanent nerve damage is extremely rare when conducting facelift surgery, Dr. Torgerson employs the “open technique” to ensure optimal safety, so no damage should occur to facial nerves.
