Toronto Facelift – You Have Many Options
The main types of facelifts are mini facelifts, deep plane, and full-face lifts.
As with any plastic surgery, Dr. Torgerson is a firm believer that a Toronto facelift should also be tailored to a patient’s individual needs. Many patients are surprised to learn that there are different options when it comes to this age-defying procedure.
The Benefits of Facelifts
Types of Facelifts
Mini facelifts have been gaining recognition in the plastic surgery industry in recent years. They are a less extensive version of the full lift, and they target only the areas that require attention. This type of facelift is typically suitable for skin that shows minimal sagging. The most common areas treated in a mini facelift are the jowls, cheeks, and nasolabial folds.
One of the major benefits of a mini facelift is that typically only one week of downtime is required. Since the surgery is also less invasive, using smaller incisions than a full facelift, it can usually be performed under local anaesthesia. The ideal candidates for a mini facelift are usually people who have just begun to exhibit the visible signs of aging around the cheeks, jaw, and neck area.
A deep plane facelift is a surgery that involves repositioning the sagging facial tissues involved in facial aging. This type of facelift is typically most effective in restoring midface and nasolabial folds as well as recreating a smooth neckline. A deep plane facelift is an advanced version of the traditional full facelift where the entire face is essentially lifted by repositioning the deep tissue layers. Since there is no pulled skin involved in this type of procedure, it often delivers more natural-looking results. Normally the results are also longer-lasting than other types of facelifts.
The Optimal Age for a Face-lift
A Full Facelift
Following a deep plane facelift, patients are usually able to return to work and their regular day-to-day activities in around two weeks.
A full Toronto facelift traditionally addresses all areas of concern on the face. During a full facelift, the skin is tightened and repositioned in the upper, middle, and lower sections of the face, and excess fat is also removed, if required. This procedure is more invasive than a mini lift and is performed under general anaesthesia. Although bruising and swelling typically minimize in around 7 to 10 days following the procedure, two weeks of rest are recommended to allow the body to heal.
The optimal age for a full face-lift is generally around 45 to 50, as it aims to address the visible signs of aging as soon as possible for patients to enjoy long-lasting results.
In addition to the different types of Toronto facelifts you can choose from, many patients also prefer to add other procedures to the surgery to enhance their results. For instance, lip augmentations, lip lifts, brow lifts, and chin augmentations are all types of treatments that can be combined with a facelift to achieve optimal results.
To determine which Toronto facelift is right for you, the first step is to schedule a consultation with an experienced facial plastic surgeon. At Dr. Torgerson’s Facial Plastic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, all treatment plans are customized with patient comfort at the forefront to ensure that your goals are met in the safest way possible.
