Investigating the Toronto Face Lift: What It Can and Can’t Do for You

It is important to understand what a procedure like this can and can’t do for you.

When it comes to facial surgery, people are often misinformed about what they can and cannot achieve. For people considering a Toronto facelift, it is important to have realistic expectations going into the procedure to avoid disappointment.

A Natural-Looking Improvement

Toronto Facelift Results

With advances in modern medicine, the days of dramatic facelifts with a “pulled” look are gone. Surgeons are now shifting focus to more natural-looking results by tightening deep structures of the face and gently redraping skin. This results in a more natural outcome.

What a facelift often cannot do for you is dramatically improve wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Since these are imperfections in the superficial layer of the skin, they typically require different treatment to address them.

Combining Botox or fillers with a Toronto facelift is the best way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. In some cases, it may also be possible to combine the face lift with a chemical peel to address repairs on the surface of the skin.

Another important factor to account for when considering a face-lift is that it typically addresses the lower face rather than the mid-level features and the eyes or forehead. The most dramatic improvements are usually seen in the neck, jowls, and cheek area. For people looking for changes in the upper part of the face as well, it may be prudent to consider the option of a brow or eyelid lift to be performed in conjunction with the facelift.

Tightening and Lifting the Jowls and Jawline

Types of Facelifts

For patients looking to reverse the visible signs of aging, a face-lift can help. This cosmetic procedure is an effective way to tighten and lift the jowls and jawline, tighten the skin on the neck, as well as lift structures of the face such as the cheeks that have begun to sag with age.

Some patients are intimidated by adding other treatments onto a Toronto facelift, it is actually advantageous, as patients can usually save on costs as well as reduce two potential recovery periods to one.

It is also important to understand the different results delivered by different types of facelifts. Although some patients may opt for a mini lift instead of a full face lift due to the shorter recovery period, they should do this with the understanding that smaller incisions often deliver less dramatic results. Although the bigger incisions made with a full facelift require a longer recovery period, the results to the lower face and neck are more dramatic.

For those contemplating a Toronto facelift, the single most important factor in determining its success is the surgeon. Choosing an experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in the head and neck is the only way to guarantee you are satisfied with your results.
