Facial cosmetic surgery in Toronto usually refers to the aesthetic surgical improvements that men and women choose to make to their face. The term is sometimes used interchangeably with facial plastic surgery that involves reconstructive and cosmetic procedures to the face and neck. Structural cosmetic surgery describes all those procedures that come to mind when you think of beautiful celebrities who look young and refreshed with lifted features and smooth skin that seems to defy age and gravity. Today, more than ever, we see evidence of advancing facial aesthetic techniques all around us.

What does Facial Surgery mean and what qualifies as facial cosmetic surgery in Toronto?

Facial surgery may include intricate changes to the nose, jawline, cheekbones, ears or neck. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a common addition to various facelifts designed to turn back the clock on drooping eyes. Through meticulous trimming, tightening and adjusting of facial tissue, smooth, youthful features are revealed.
When it comes to a rhinoplasty (nose job) or chin implants, age isn’t always a compelling factor. Instead, people of all ages desire more balanced facial proportions and improvements like refined nasal tips, straight bump-less nasal bridges and narrowed nostrils.

Conversely, the term plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery are used most often by medical professionals to describe the correction of congenital, post-surgical or traumatic deformities and reconstruction. The most in-demand facial cosmetic surgeons in Toronto are adept in both facial plastic and cosmetic procedures, with a specialization in the enhancement of the head and neck. Those surgeons with advanced training in these fields can deliver a wide variety of impressive and challenging results for diverse patients. They can beautify and balance, improve, repair and reconstruct.

In Canada and the USA, facial plastic surgeons are subspecialists in the field of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. They have both advanced training in cosmetic, and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. These surgeons only perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery from the neck up. A general plastic surgeon is certified to perform both body and facial procedures. In Canada, plastic surgery residents train in plastic surgery for the entire body.

Who will be the best surgeon for your facial cosmetic surgery in Toronto?

Dr. Phillip Solomon has the unique distinction of holding certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, which means he completed the approved residency in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery in the United States. That makes him double board-certified, both by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and the American Board of Medical Specialties.

It is facial cosmetic surgeons trained in Otolaryngology who are considered leading experts in reconstructive and cosmetic procedures of the face and neck, and they’re the top choice for discerning clients who want experienced, dedicated facial expertise. Also, the professionals who perform the most rhinoplasties tend to be otolaryngologists, and Dr. Solomon is a leading rhinoplasty expert.

Facial cosmetic surgery is on the rise in Toronto- and not just for women

Dr. Solomon’s male patients represent a growing demographic. Overall, more people are seeking cosmetic surgery to enhance their appearance than ever before, and there are some accepted theories as to why.

The aging population

We now have a significant number of active, relatively wealthy seniors in Canada who belong to the “baby boomer” generation. These folks are aware that they have options to improve their appearance, and they have time, money and awareness unlike previous generations of their age bracket.

Increasing numbers of females entering and staying in the workforce

Some would argue that society is less forgiving of aging women than men. Those who wish to be socially accepted and taken seriously want to appear attractive, youthful and radiant. Cosmetic surgery is allowing a new generation of women to feel confident about how they look in a competitive workforce.

Surgical innovations improve results and recovery time

Many facial cosmetic surgeries, including facelifts, nose jobs or eyelid surgery, allow for rapid recovery and minimal scarring- if any is visible at all. The fine-tuned and atraumatic techniques used by experts mean minimal bruising and swelling, less discomfort and less time off to heal.

Greater social acceptability

Social media, television, movie stars who share freely, and even a few people in your peer group who’ve had cosmetic surgery, may change how you perceive it. The public is more aware of the treatments available and more accepting.

Increasing availability

More physicians and surgeons are entering the field, making numerous cosmetic surgery practices available, especially in large city centers.

More men are choosing surgical and non-surgical procedures to improve their appearance

Fourteen percent of all anti-wrinkle injections, 20 percent of laser hair removal (LHR) 24 percent of rhinoplasty and 15 percent of liposuction or eyelid surgeries, were carried out on men in the US in recent years. That trend is expected to grow as men, just like their female counterparts, are staying in the workforce longer and simply want to look younger. Men and women are also re-entering the dating scene in midlife or senior years, and many of them take these milestones as an opportunity to make improvements they’ve always wanted.

Whether clearing acne-scarred skin, removing unwanted hair, smoothing forehead wrinkles or restoring hairlines, men are getting a little help from facial cosmetic surgeons to feel better about how they look. In Dr. Solomon’s Toronto facial cosmetic surgery practice, standard procedures selected by men include rhinoplasty, facelift, chin implantation, blepharoplasty, Botox, otoplasty, and laser resurfacing. Dr. Solomon offers computer imaging to help patients explore the possibilities before undergoing treatment.

Facial cosmetic surgeons in Toronto do much more than operate

As our society becomes more appearance-focused, the trend toward maintaining good looks with aesthetic interventions is expected to grow. This doesn’t always mean selecting a facial surgical procedure in order to look better. When choosing to seek a consultation with an experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in otolaryngology head and neck surgery, that means you’ll have a wealth of experience and tools at your fingertips.

There are numerous non-surgical options to make the changes you desire, and often a combination of possibilities achieve the perfect harmony. The best way to determine how you can make the changes to your face, is to meet with an expert like Dr. Philip Solomon for a detailed, personalized consultation. Your Toronto facial cosmetic surgery expert can advise a custom treatment plan that ensures natural-looking outcomes to help you reach your goals.
