When you think of facelift results, do you imagine tight-faced celebrities? Do you associate this popular cosmetic surgery with older men and women? You might be surprised to learn that facelift trends in 2022 reflect a subtle, “pro-aging” aesthetic and a younger, age 35 to 50 demographic.
People seeking a facelift in Toronto at Dr. Cory Torgerson’s Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centre include increasingly younger men and women who want to age gracefully rather than dramatically alter their appearance.
With innovative, personalized surgical planning, it’s now possible to appear refreshed, toned, and more youthful without significant scarring, a lengthy recovery time, or the dreaded “overdone” result.
We’ve also seen the rise of custom, specialty facelift techniques such as the mini facelift that appeal to people who wish to target early signs of ageing in precise, localized ways.
We predict that facelifts in Toronto will continue to trend younger in 2022, and here’s why that’s a good thing.
Early Facelift Benefits
In the past, cosmetic surgery patients often waited until they reached their 60s or 70s before deciding that the wrinkles and excess skin had to go.
Certainly, some of the most dramatic facelift before and after results come from smoothing and lifting signs of age away from older complexions.
The drawbacks to waiting may include a longer procedure and recovery time, delayed healing and scar maturation, and the tendency to appear dramatically different after a full facelift at an advanced age.
Comparatively, benefits for early intervention include precise, targeted changes involving only the facial areas where we see skin laxity issues first. For example, the neck, jawline, or mouth may begin to develop wrinkles or signs of gravity years before changes appear elsewhere.
Also, the skin of middle-aged people will retain more natural elasticity and the ability to heal quickly. That means less dramatic interventions are needed, and recovery times can be relatively quick.
An important benefit of early intervention is often the subtlety of results.
Increasingly, facelift patients don’t wish to look like their 20-year-old selves or even show any signs of cosmetic surgery.
Thankfully, it’s entirely possible with today’s facelift techniques to create beautifully subtle improvements that help people age more confidently without ever giving their secrets away.
