Erase Wrinkles for good with a Facelift in Toronto

If wrinkles and sagging skin are some of your biggest aesthetic concerns, injectable fillers can be a good solution, but they aren’t your only option. Many patients with noticeable signs of aging can enjoy long-term results with facelift surgery. A facelift is very effective for tightening up loose skin and smoothing out wrinkles. It is a complete facial re-contouring and rejuvenation procedure that can restore your youthful face shape and help you maintain results for years to come.

Am I Ready for a Facelift?

The best candidates for facelift surgery in Toronto are those between the ages of 40 and 70 years of age with relatively good skin elasticity. Even though surgery can correct loose and sagging skin, the patient does need to have some degree of elasticity for optimal healing. Having skin that is very thin may not respond well to the procedure and poses inherent risks. Dr. O’Grady can determine whether you are a candidate for this procedure during your consultation.

Some of the signs you may be ready for a Facelift Toronto include:

  • Loose skin around the jowls
  • Deep wrinkles around the eyes
  • Creases and wrinkles along the forehead
  • Sagging skin and tissue around the cheeks
  • Lack of definition around the jawbone and cheekbones
  • Deep folds around the nose and mouth

Even though many of these problems can be addressed with fillers or laser treatments, results are temporary and may even be unpredictable. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures are typically performed as a series and some will provide gradual results. Injectables can only treat smaller areas and you may need to undergo several treatments of different injectables to achieve desired results.

What a Facelift Can Do for You

Most of our facelift patients are very satisfied with the results because they no longer need to rely on injectable fillers and skin tightening treatments to maintain a youthful look. Whether your skin has been damaged from excess sun exposure or you have excessive wrinkling and sagging of the skin, surgery can reverse many of these problems in a single procedure. Dr. O’Grady can use special techniques to perform a forehead lift, neck lift, facial fat transfer, and other procedures as part of your facelift. Eyelid surgery can be another addition to the treatment plan.
