Facelift Facts You Should Be Aware Of

Home / Cosmetic Surgery Procedures / Facelift Toronto / Facelift Facts You Should Be Aware Of

Proper research should be conducted before moving forward with any facial treatment or surgery. This not only protects you, the patient, from any surprises, but also ensures that the procedure you have chosen will accomplish the goals you desire. If a facelift is what you feel is necessary, it should not be embarked on without proper consultation with a Canadian-certified, experienced facial plastic surgeon.

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.

During surgery, many blood vessels are also disturbed.  Because wounds will tend to heal more slowly when there is excessive bleeding, Dr. Torgerson and his experienced operating staff take special precautions to ensure that all blood vessels are properly sealed to minimize the risk of bleeding.

Facial scarring is a huge concern to most people prior to undergoing facelift surgery.  This is where Dr. Torgerson’s years of experience and artistic ability are invaluable.  He studies his patient’s face to determine the best location for the minute incisions that have to be made.  They are normally hidden  along the hairline of the forehead or in the facial creases just in front of the ears, making them as inconspicuous as possible.

All of these concerns associated with a rhytidectomy are minimized greatly if the correct surgeon and facility is chosen.  Dr. Torgerson’s private surgical facility consistently maintains the highest possible standard when appraised by the CPSO.  His qualifications and skill can be proven by viewing the before and after photos of satisfied facelift patients, either on his website or during a private consultation.
