Have Fillers Replaced the Toronto Facelift?

Fillers, which work to plump the skin, temporarily erasing wrinkles and facial folds, are growing in popularity and increasing in effectiveness.

Many patients wonder if fillers have replaced the Toronto facelift. Although both fillers and facelifts have many of the same objectives, there is no comparing the two procedures. Fillers are an excellent short-term solution that can delay signs of aging in younger patients, but only a Toronto facelift can dramatically turn back the hands of time. Face lifts address all signs of aging in the face. As a result, despite the prevalence of injectable fillers, more and more patients are requesting facelift surgery to counteract the tell-tale signs of aging.

The Changes in the Face

Five Signs of Aging in the Face

  • The skin begins to change as wrinkles and age spots develop
  • Dynamic lines such as crow’s-feet caused by overactive muscles become more pronounced
  • The cheeks and temples begin to lose volume
  • The skin loses its elasticity
  • Gravity pulls the skin on the face downwards, causing the face to sag or droop

Botox can effectively fill fine lines in the forehead and between the brows, and fillers can be used to restore volume to the cheeks and soften nasolabial folds. However, the corrections offered by these products are temporary. Fillers are a suitable option for younger patients who desire a less invasive, often preventative treatment. But a Toronto facelift is the only procedure that can effectively treat all 5 signs of aging in the face. In addition, at a certain age, fillers are no longer able to counteract the signs of aging.

Which Procedure Is Right for You?

Types of Facelifts

Depending on the patient’s goals for the procedure, there are a number of different types of face-lifts, including the traditional full facelift and the mini facelift, which is an excellent option for patients who have minimal loose skin. The mini facelift is a less invasive procedure that targets the mid-face and jowls, while the full facelift also addresses the neck to deliver more consistent results. In some cases, to achieve your desired outcome, a facelift can be combined with a neck lift, brow lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), or CO2 laser. The advantage of combining procedures is that it brings about a dramatic transformation without the need for additional recovery time.
