Everything old is new again. You may be familiar with this often-true saying. In the field of cosmetic surgery, it’s common to see a new resurgence of traditional procedures. Innovative techniques improve standard methods and bring us ever closer to safer, natural, and impressive results. Below we reveal the top facial plastic procedures for 2019.
When visiting a facial plastic surgeon in Toronto this year, there’s a good chance that many people will consider a facelift. The process, recovery, and outcomes of facelifts have evolved leaps and bounds. Last year may have been the year of injectable Soft Lift facial transformations, but both surgical and non-surgical options are going strong for 2019. Patients are requesting eyelid surgery, facial injections, and revitalizing lifts to shave years off their appearance. Here we’ll look at the new and not-so-new treatments that our Toronto clients love for 2019.
Here’s why you should visit the Torgerson Clinic this year
Dr. Cory Torgerson’s priority is his patient’s individualized comfort and satisfaction with each procedure, no matter how small. The Torgerson clinic is a facial cosmetic surgery and aesthetic centre focused on delivering a significant array of leading treatments for the face. Because of Dr. Torgerson’s in-depth head and neck, facial reconstructive, surgical, and non-surgical methods for treatment, he can genuinely offer each patient the most comprehensive and appropriate care to deliver on their goals. No matter what your concern is, we can help you choose beautiful solutions.
What do your eyes reveal about your youthfulness?
When you meet someone’s gaze or speak with them, do you see the wrinkled skin around their eyes? Do you notice if their lids are hooded, puffy bags cast shadows under them, and they appear tired or angry? Our eyes convey a lot about us, and as we age, they may outwardly express something we don’t feel on the inside.
A blepharoplasty procedure, commonly called an eyelid lift, delivers dramatic improvements with just a few minor, well-hidden incisions. Imagine removing your bags – no more miracle creams that disappoint. Then picture revealing smooth, taught upper eyelid skin so that makeup glides on effortlessly again. You can appear rested or years younger with a fast, straightforward procedure. Blepharoplasty is becoming more popular and the techniques so advanced that it can be completed without any apparent telltale signs.
Some people worry that their eyes will look “too open” or they won’t feel like themselves after making this change. The truth is, if you select an experienced, skilled facial plastic surgeon in Toronto who focuses entirely on facial rejuvenation procedures, your appearance will be in the hands of someone who understands subtlety and artistry. Less is indeed more when it comes to facial alterations.
Laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation
Lasers came long ago out of the high-tech, sci-fi world to offer real, effective everyday use for all people. Whether you need complex reconstructive correction or gentle remodelling to look your best, lasers can achieve incredible results. As research and medical engineering advance, so do the options for the cosmetic application of laser technology.
We now have ablative and non-ablative devices to stop sweating, remove hair, tighten skin, restore collagen, erase dark spots, fade scars . . . and the list goes on. Ranging in strength from dramatic resurfacing to light afternoon refreshers, more people are seeking laser treatments simply because lasers can do more now than ever before.
With miraDry new to the market this year, men and women who suffer from debilitating excessive sweating can now quickly and painlessly stop the problem without surgery or downtime. Likewise, laser treatments are allowing us to melt and remove fat cells without surgical liposuction, which was wishful thinking just a few years ago.
Laser skin resurfacing overseen by licenced staff or a facial plastic surgeon in Toronto is safe and can be performed with or without a facelift to transform your look. Melasma (uneven pigmentation) is a common issue for people of all skin tones, yet laser treatments were once limited for use on lighter skin only. Now varying wavelengths and scientific advancements have made certain devices safe for treating darker skin and revealing a beautiful, smooth, and even skin tone for all patients.
Do you have acne scarring, sun spots, visible pores, or fine lines? You can treat all of these without harsh abrasives and without surgery. We predict that the wider range of application and greater accessibility will make laser treatments even more popular in 2019.
The liquid facelift (facial injectables)
This growing trend has gained traction in recent years, and we don’t see it slowing down. While surgical facelift procedures are also renowned for what they can achieve, injectable treatments that accomplish some of the same objectives provide a non-surgical alternative for people who are not yet ready or not considering a facelift.
How does a liquid facelift work?
In Toronto, facial plastic surgeons with experience and a full breadth of tools at their disposal often combine a variety of effective techniques to meet a client’s goals. A purely injectable makeover suits many people and comes at a lower cost than surgery.
Through the use of neuromodulators (which temporarily diminish muscle movement) and hyaluronic acid fillers, we can sculpt, smooth, lift, and restore the face. Fillers are not all created equal, and there are various types and consistencies of fillers to utilize in the different facial regions. These form a combined lifting effect through building up structural support and replacing fat and collagen volume that have diminished over time.
Safe, natural, and temporary dermal fillers enable Dr. Torgerson to minimize facial deformities and scars, reshape and balance features, smooth away wrinkles, and restore youthful volume. After the age of 30, many people note a loss of volume in the cheeks, lips, and under-eyes. Add to that the persistent furrows and forehead lines created from years of dynamic muscle movement in the area. With an injectable facelift, we can smooth away those lines while preserving full animation and the use of facial muscles required to smile and appear relaxed and completely natural.
In the hands of a skilled, experienced surgeon, you can rebuild what has sunken or shifted on your face without looking as though you had a procedure. The gentle and fine-tuned adjustments work together to erase signs of ageing, but people will ask only why you look so healthy and rested, not what you had done. Because patients see signs of aging that they’d like to reverse in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, yet aren’t ready to undergo surgery, liquid facelifts will continue to be in demand, and more people can experience what’s possible with this technique.
Facial plastic surgeons in Toronto offer advanced facelift options
The popularity of facelift surgery may never fade away. That’s because the demand will always be present, while the methods and outcomes are continually improving.
If you’re considering a procedure to smooth away facial sagging and other signs of ageing, you may have questions about the pros and cons of each treatment. Dr. Torgerson prioritizes detailed consultations with his patients to understand their concerns and aesthetic goals, then recommends a completely personalized plan.
Your appearance has plenty to do with the face you present to the world each day. You need a highly experienced facial specialist when aiming for flawlessly natural results. Well-done, modern facelift procedures have patients looking refreshed, younger, and consistently rejuvenated for years after they’ve healed. Tightening the underlying muscles and ligaments of your face, strategically positioning volume and cushion, carefully balancing features, and removing excess skin allow Dr. Torgerson to masterfully reverse the signs of aging without lending a “plastic” look.
Toronto facial surgeons who specialize in the latest advanced facelift techniques are attracting a growing number of clients who realize that there’s no longer a stigma attached to surgical cosmetic procedures. And with recovery becoming faster and easier than ever, this solution is more appealing each year.
In 2019, if you’ve considered revealing your more youthful and confident side, why not start with a complimentary consultation at the Torgerson clinic to begin the conversation, learn more, or take steps in the right direction? We value patient education and will supply you with detailed procedure information to ensure that you have the facts you need to make an informed decision. Whether surgical or non-invasive, dramatic or a subtle boost, the new facial cosmetic treatments will enhance lives for a growing number of people just like you this year.
