What Should You Ask During Your Toronto Facelift Consultation?
Once you have chosen a surgeon for your Toronto facelift, the first step will be an in-depth consultation.
The consultation is a vital component of the procedure, as surgical planning usually depends upon the content and outcome of the consultation. But what should you ask during your Toronto facelift consultation?
Candidates for a Facelift Surgery
The Most Important Parts of a Consultation
One of the most important parts of a consultation is to determine if you are indeed a candidate for a facelift surgery. During a consultation, the questions a surgeon will ask you are just as important as the questions you should ask them. To ensure that the treatment can address your goals, it is important to be forthcoming with all aspects of your medical history as well as any alcohol, drug, and tobacco use.
The surgeon will perform a detailed assessment of your medical history to determine if there are any pre-existing health conditions that may interfere with the surgery. A history of previous medical procedures and recent medications is also an important component of the consultation.
Based on the information you give during the consultation such as your age, weight, skin type, and skin laxity, the surgeon will be able to recommend if a facelift should be performed as a standalone procedure or will be more effective in conjunction with another procedure.
Approaching your Toronto facelift with confidence requires the detailed discussion of your personal goals during the consultation. Some patients may want dramatic results, taking several years off the face, whereas others may be looking for a subtle change to simply look refreshed. To set realistic expectations and ensure optimal results, a surgeon must understand clearly exactly what you want to change.

The patients who are the most satisfied with their Toronto facelift results are those who have had in-depth, open, and honest discussions with the surgeon beforehand regarding their aesthetic goals.
It is also important during the consultation to bring up any other concerns you may have regarding the procedure, including cost, the surgeon’s credentials, or the clinic itself.
