What Are the Common Misconceptions About a Toronto Facelift?

While an increasing number of patients express an interest in Toronto facelift surgery, a number of common misconceptions about this procedure remain.

A rhytidectomy, commonly referred to as a facelift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that works to restore a more youthful appearance to the face. This is achieved by smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while removing excess, loose skin, sagging jowls, and laxity beneath the chin. Because of the multiple problem areas this procedure targets and the dramatic transformation it yields, Toronto facelift surgery is rapidly gaining popularity among both men and women

A Facelift Is A One-Size-Fits-All Procedure

A Facelift Is A Skin-Stretching Surgery

One of the biggest misconceptions about Toronto facelift surgery is that this procedure eliminates fine lines and wrinkles by tightly stretching the skin. This erroneous belief is a result of the outcome that some patients unfortunately achieve from cosmetic surgeons who perform rhytidectomy surgery without the experience and training necessary to carry out this complex surgical procedure. While pulling the skin taut will erase unwanted wrinkles, it also delivers results that are often unnatural and that consequently change the patient’s face rather than restoring a more youthful appearance. However, when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, a facelift repositions and tightens the facial muscles to return them to their original position, thus refreshing the patient’s face without stretching or distorting their appearance.

Another common misconception about facelift surgery in Toronto is that it is a one-size-fits-all procedure and all patients end up with similar results. The reality is that this procedure is carefully customized to suit each individual patient. During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Torgerson will listen to your concerns and goals for the procedure and develop a personalized treatment plan that is designed to meet your objectives.

A Facelift Is For Patients In Their 50s And 60s

Techniques Which Are Used For The Procedure

A variety of different techniques can be used depending on the patient’s needs and what they hope to accomplish. For example, some patients want to focus on loose skin in the neck, while others are more concerned with the heaviness of the jowls. Customizing the procedure to your individual needs ensures that you will achieve results that are both natural and beautiful.

A facelift is an excellent option for patients in their 50s and 60s, as it works to turn back the hands of time, bringing about a dramatic transformation. However, it is also a suitable procedure for younger patients who hope to make small improvements or corrections. For example, a mini face-lift is an excellent option for patients in their 40s who are troubled by jowls along the jawline, as a less-invasive short-scar technique can be used.
