Are You a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
Some people panic when the first wrinkle appears on their face, thinking they’d better book a facelift surgery as soon as possible.
Other people, who could definitely benefit from undergoing a rhytidectomy, or face-lift, put the surgery off for far too long and opt for only non-surgical methods to maintain their looks. So what are the facts? When are you a good candidate to receive a facelift?
No Set Age For The Surgery
Offset The Signs Of Aging
The first important thing to understand is that there is no set age when people should “undergo the knife”. Genetics play a significant role in how quickly we age; therefore, everyone matures at a different pace. By the time two people reach the age of 40, one may appear to be 8 to 10 years older, whereas the other person looks 30. There is no sense beating yourself up if you are in the category of looking older than your peers, because it is definitely out of your control. A consistent skincare regimen as well as the plentiful non-surgical treatments now available can offset the signs of aging significantly.
As a general rule, most people will require facelift surgery between the ages of 50 to 60. By the time they reach this age category, facial cosmetic treatments are unable to maintain the fresh, youthful vitality of your face or the bright complexion you once had. Sun exposure, the effects of gravity, the loss of elasticity in your facial tissues, and the ramifications of smoking are now evident.
Excellent Candidate To Receive A Rhytidectomy
Prevent Loose Skin
Two areas that usually experience deep wrinkles are nasolabial folds – the lines between the nose and the mouth – and marionette lines, which are found from the edges of the mouth down to the chin. Smile lines around the eyes may have gotten deeper over time as well. If weight gain has occurred in your body, it usually results in excess fatty tissue in your face. This builds over the years and can cause loose skin, such as double chins or fat deposits in the cheeks and jawline. Loss of muscle tone occurs over the entire facial regions, causing sagging and folds. These sags are normally most evident in the lower face, causing jowls to form.
If any or all of the symptoms listed above are occurring in your facial features, you are probably an excellent candidate to receive a rhytidectomy – commonly known as facelift surgery. The great news is that in one fell swoop, all of these indications of ageing can be dealt with. By undergoing just one face lift surgery, you will enjoy the results for many years. Although the financial outlay is more at the time, patients who choose a facelift do not have to continually make visits to Dr. Cory Torgerson’s private clinic in Yorkville to receive as many non-surgical treatments.
Facelift surgery is definitely the most comprehensive facial cosmetic procedure that addresses the most concerns. This is the reason it is known amongst plastic surgeons as the “gold standard”. If you would like to restore a firmer, smoother appearance and turn back the clock on your aging process, please book a facelift consultation with Dr. Cory Torgerson in Toronto!
