Pros and Cons of Facelift Surgery
It is natural for some people to feel intimidated about “going under the knife” and receiving facelift surgery.
This operation can be delayed longer than ever before due to the amount of non-surgical treatments and procedures now available at facial cosmetic surgery centres. Although going under general anaesthesia may not be a frequent occurrence, the truth is, more rhytidectomies are performed each year than ever before with minimal complications.
Face And Neck Contoured & Adjusted At The Same Time
More Vibrant And Alive Look
There are some definite pros and cons about any facial plastic treatment, and facelift surgery is no exception. One of the most positive aspects that should be considered is the fact that, with just one surgery, many facial imperfections can be dealt with. All areas of the face and neck can be contoured and adjusted at the same time. Dr. Cory Torgerson is able to incorporate other procedures into the facelift that would normally require another surgery. For example, a necklift or the insertion of facial implants can be done during the facelift surgery. It is the most comprehensive facial plastic surgery addressing the upper, mid, and lower sections of the face.
While non-surgical procedures require the individual to return for follow-up treatments, to maintain the desired result, a rhytidectomy usually lasts for as long as 10 years. The greatest feature of facelift surgery is the fact that most recipients look 10 years younger – not to mention more vibrant and alive!
All facial cosmetic surgeons, including Dr. Torgerson, agree that facial features are able to be contoured and re-shaped more successfully with this operation than any other procedure.
Commitment To Achieve Best Outcome
2 Week Recovery
Anyone considering a facelift needs to be able to book 2 weeks out of their schedule to heal properly. The most facial swelling and bruising occurs in the first week but the majority of people require the full 14 days before feeling comfortable enough with their appearance to return to public.
A realistic outlook is necessary before deciding to undergo a face-lift. This surgery will not change your personality or suddenly transform you into a Hollywood legend. The truth is, a good plastic surgeon’s goal is to make you look natural and fresh, not overdone or like someone else. This is the result you can expect after receiving facelift surgery from Dr. Torgerson and his professional operating team.
A positive outlook is also necessary to understand that a commitment on your own part is necessary achieve the best possible outcome from the surgery. Following pre- and post-op instructions is a requirement on the part of the recipient, and good skin maintenance following surgery is a must. The most discomfort will be experienced in the first 3 to 4 days, but the pain medication prescribed by the surgeon will allow the patient to be as comfortable as possible.
Booking an appointment with Dr. Torgerson at his private surgery facility in Yorkville will allow him to address any further concerns you have and answer any questions you would like to ask.
