What is the Best Alternative to a Toronto Facelift?
A rhytidecomy, or facelift, is a highly sought-after facial plastic surgery procedure that restores a more youthful appearance to the face by tightening the skin and underlying muscles.
Given their ability to eradicate wrinkles and tighten loose skin, face lifts are frequently requested by patients in their 50s and 60s. However, more and more patients in their 30s and 40s are expressing an interest in the mini facelift, the best alternative to a Toronto facelift surgery.
Benefits of Mini Facelift
What Is A Mini Facelift?
As its name implies, a mini-facelift is a less-invasive facelift surgical procedure. During this procedure, the plastic surgeon makes several small incisions to lift the mid-face or neck, smoothing wrinkles and reshaping the patient’s facial contour. To achieve this goal, the skin is separated from the underlying fat and muscle. Any excess skin is trimmed or removed using liposuction. The placement of the incisions vary slightly depending on your facial structure and goals for the procedure.
The mini facelift has a number of benefits, including:
- A shorter recovery time
- Reduced discomfort following surgery
- A shorter, less invasive, and less complicated surgery
- Smaller incisions
- Fewer associated risks
- Reduced swelling and bruising
- A more subtle change
- Specific areas of the face and neck are targeted
- Possible improvement of the jaw line’s definition
- Lower cost than a full facelift
How to Schedule a Consultation
Who Is a Suitable Candidate for a Mini Facelift in Toronto?
Unlike a full face lift, a mini face-lift does not necessitate incisions behind the ear. Sutures will then be used to keep the layers of tissue in place and close the incision. In most cases, this procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia with sedation.
A mini face lift is a suitable procedure for healthy men and women in their 30s and 40s who are troubled by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the mid-face area but do not have excessive loose skin around the neckline and jaw. This procedure can effectively turn back the hands of time, restoring your appearance in a way that is subtle and incredibly natural. Unlike a traditional Toronto facelift, a mini-facelift is a preventative procedure, as it effectively prevents the development of loose, sagging skin. If you have moderate to severe sagging skin in the neck or jawline, you may be a better candidate for a full face-lift.
To learn more about this procedure and determine whether a mini Toronto facelift is right for you, please contact our clinic to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cory Torgerson, a leading facial plastic surgeon in Toronto. During your private consultation, Dr. Torgerson will listen to your concerns, thoroughly answer your questions, and evaluate your facial anatomy to determine your candidacy for this procedure.
