5 Helpful Ways to Know If You’re a Great Candidate for Toronto Facial
Cosmetic Surgery

If you’re one of the many people considering facial cosmetic surgery in Toronto, you may be wondering how to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Today we’ll explain 5 helpful ways to find out if you’re a good candidate for a facelift. When it comes to surgeries such as facelifts, there are several factors to consider that can ultimately impact your satisfaction with the procedure.


Factors to Consider Before Undergoing the Procedure

Although there is no perfect age for a facelift, it’s generally a good idea to have some rejuvenation done before the visible signs of aging are very severe. When the facial signs of aging are too advanced, the likelihood of achieving the best results is reduced. Opting for a facelift in your 40s and 50s is generally a good idea, as it can help prevent physical changes before they become permanent. Another advantage is that in their forties and fifties, people generally have few medical issues, if any, which means they are healthy, stable candidates for surgery.


The majority of patients who’ve traditionally undergone a facelift have been female, but the procedure is equally as effective for men. Among clients opting for facial cosmetic surgery in Toronto, there has been a steady increase in the number of men turning to facelifts for improved confidence in all areas of life and to match the outside with how young they feel on the inside. Although men are usually just as good candidates as women, there are specific considerations to account for when it comes to male facelifts. For instance, since men tend to have broader faces with thicker skin and stronger ligament structures, the procedure can be more complex. For this reason, it’s extremely important to choose a highly experienced and Royal College-certified plastic surgeon with specific expertise in male cosmetic surgery.

Skin Elasticity

The Best Candidates for a Facelift

The best candidates for a facelift are typically people whose skin has retained some of its natural suppleness. Suppleness is important, as it affects the skin’s capacity to adjust to its new contours once it has been tightened and the wrinkles have been smoothed. Generally, a patient’s genetic background, diet, degree of acne scarring, and exposure to the sun will influence their skin elasticity.

Bone Structure

Strong facial bone structure can make all the difference when it comes to the results of a facelift. Well-defined facial bone structure can enhance results and ensure that they last longer. That being said, patients lacking strong bone structure can have great results too. In some cases, those patients also opt for facial implants to support the surgery.


Since a facelift is a significant surgery, being in overall good health prior to the procedure is paramount when it comes to achieving the best surgical outcome possible. Aside from general physical health, giving up unhealthy habits such as drinking alcohol and smoking a few weeks prior to the procedure can positively influence both the results and the recovery process.
