Strategies to Avoid Regret and Choose the Best Plastic Surgeon in Toronto for You

It’s no secret that cosmetic surgery procedures can be pricey. Depending on your aesthetic goals and the approach you take, physical and psychological rewards can be immense as well, which is why people flock to enhance their faces. The best plastic surgeon for Toronto patients is always someone who combines a high level of expertise with the ability to listen to patients and communicate comfortably.

Disappointment after an expensive, transformative procedure will usually relate to expectations. If a patient believes they are getting one thing, and their result is another, regret can be understandable. Most plastic surgeons do their utmost to avoid unrealistic expectations or incomplete preparedness before surgery. It benefits both the surgeon and the patient to ensure that they are on the same page, with clarity and fully informed understanding about the recovery and outcomes. You have significant power in this situation. You can choose the professional who fits best with your needs and goals.

Looking for the best plastic surgeon in Toronto?

What are your specific goals?

Facial plastic surgery involves facelifts, eyelid surgery, neck lifts, nose jobs, and more. It’s common to admire celebrities who appear magically refreshed overnight and wonder if their “procedure” would also do the same for you. The customization and combination of methods that benefit each face is highly unique.

It starts with your consultation

The best plastic surgeon for one person may not be ideal for another. Analyzing someone else’s result isn’t the right way to determine what you need. Instead, visiting a facial plastic surgeon in person for a detailed consultation is the place to start. At that crucial first meeting, the questions your surgeon asks you will be as essential as the questions you ask. Toronto’s best plastic surgeons have a knack for figuring out what interventions you’ll benefit from the most. They understand the face, aging, asymmetry, and proportions better than anyone, so their insight will help unlock the source of your concern.

They’ll ask what bothers you, such as appearing tired or having an angry look. You may state that your eyelids are sagging, then find that the surgeon suggests a brow lift. They might recommend a type of facelift that is different from what you expected. When seeking rhinoplasty for a smaller nose, you may find the surgeon recommends a chin augmentation to balance your face.

These suggestions will be based on the in-depth knowledge of facial balance and proportion. Those things are easy to see for facial experts, but less so for you. The choice of what to do is entirely yours. However, the consultation and assessment are a valuable tool to gather expert feedback about changes that can deliver what you seek. Let your chosen specialist help you narrow down which specific procedures will give you the overall improvement you desire.

Choose the right facial procedure at the right time

Dr. Cory Torgerson – Facial Plastic Surgeon

An ethical and qualified facial plastic surgeon will want you to choose treatments appropriate for your goals, age, budget, and timing in general. For instance, do you need a deep plane facelift, or will a mini facelift meet your price and aesthetic goals?

There’s often more than one good solution to enhance features, and a good surgeon will explain all of the options so that you can choose what’s best. Plastic surgeons in Toronto are often highly experienced in both surgical and non-surgical approaches, so they may offer alternatives or a combination of interventions. They will even tell you honestly if now is not the best time for surgery.

A few reasons you may not be an ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery include:

  • You have an untreated medical condition that would impair healing or make surgery unsafe
  • You’re not prepared for the required recovery restrictions
  • You’re interested only in fast solutions with minimal downtime
  • If the price of facial surgery is higher than you’re comfortable with

Other contraindications are unique to each individual and are best discussed in person during a consultation. Ultimately, your plastic surgeon wants to set you up for success. That means choosing a procedure that’s likely to deliver what you want and ensuring that you’re informed of the risks and considerations, that you feel confident about your decision, and that you can be patient for the results. The better prepared you are, the more likely you’ll be happy and stress-free during recovery.

Due diligence tips for surgeon selection

The many credentials, terms, and marketing claims you come across may feel overwhelming or confusing. Starting with referrals from friends can be helpful because you’ll have a chance to ask what your surgeon is like in person and gauge whether you’ll click.

Once you’ve created a shortlist, verifying specific practice experience and talent becomes a priority.

We recommend that you choose a plastic surgeon in Toronto who best matches your particular area of interest. That means if you want to revitalize your appearance with an anti-aging facelift, you should not go with the top-rated body procedure surgeon. They may provide flawless breast implants but have minimal hands-on experience with the head and neck.

As well, your surgeon should be fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. You can expect to see plenty of reviews and before-and-after examples of their work in their clinic.

Ask direct questions and expect direct answers

You can ask, “How much does a facelift cost?” or “Would I be better off with a liquid facelift?” A reputable facial plastic surgeon will advise you of the real risks, pros, and cons for each procedure.
