Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Facelift?

There is a myth in society that facelifts are reserved only for women.

The truth is, both men and women are interested in their appearance and desire to look as youthful as possible. Both genders are potential facelift candidates. Most people who investigate the options available to them are unhappy about the aging process and the changes that are occurring in their face. Because the skin and the underlying tissues lose their natural elasticity as we age, sagging inevitably occurs. These changes and outcomes can result in anxiety and low self-esteem in some people. Others simply want a change on the outside to more closely model the youthfulness they still feel on the inside.

Booking An Appointment With Dr. Cory Torgerson

Facial Plastic Surgery Consultation

Anyone interested in facelift surgery should begin by booking an appointment with Dr. Cory Torgerson. In a private, discreet setting at his downtown Toronto office, the patient can discuss their concerns and discover the amazing results a facelift provides via the Yorkville clinic’s 3-D VECTRA Imaging System. The client’s pictures are taken, and images of possible post-op results are studied and can be decided upon. Many factors are taken into account at this facial plastic surgery consultation such as the amount of sagging and laxity of the skin, the quality of the skin, the age of the client, and the length of time required to heal after a facelift. If a person is not able to take 2 weeks off of their busy schedule for the healing process to take place, perhaps a mini-facelift would suit their needs. It is necessary to balance the results a client desires with a realistic understanding of the healing process. Basically, if there are less issues, only minor correction is necessary, requiring less downtime. If there are more concerns, a full facelift is likely to be recommended, requiring longer downtime. During the consultation, Dr. Torgerson can review before and after pictures of his previous facelift clients. This allows a complete understanding of the outcome a facelift can provide.

Dr. Torgerson And His Staff At The Toronto Surgery Centre

Ideal Candidate

It is necessary for the ideal candidate to be in good overall health and to be prepared emotionally to undergo surgery. Dr. Torgerson and his staff at the Toronto Surgery Centre will have any potential facelift candidate take some medical tests such as blood tests, a chest x-ray, and a possible ECG just to ensure that the patient is in optimal condition to undergo general anaesthesia. It is essential that the patient is prepared to rearrange their schedule in order to allow the recovery time prescribed. For best results, clients who undergo facelift surgery should also be prepared to follow post-operative advice, which Dr. Torgerson’s office will go over with any client in great detail.

Lastly, the ideal candidate for facelift surgery should have realistic expectations. It is irrational to think that an operation will turn the clock back and make them look 20 years old. The truth is, this facial plastic surgery operation will definitely take years off, make a client look more youthful, and most of all, restore self-confidence. Dr. Torgerson’s operating skills and years of experience in facial plastic surgery allow him to produce incredibly natural-looking results. His facelift patients are always very pleased they made the decision to entrust their face to his hands.
