Age is inevitable for everyone. Each year brings new experiences and wisdom, but it can also take a toll on our facial appearance. The natural elasticity and resilience our skin once enjoyed fades as we get older. This leads to crow’s feet, forehead lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, eye bags, and an overall loss of tone. Undergoing a Toronto facelift is an effective way to smooth out the skin and restore a more youthful appearance to your face. However, talking about a cosmetic procedure is easy; figuring out if now is the right time for one, can be tricky. Here are a few signs that you might be a good candidate for a facelift.
The pictures we use on our Facebook, LinkedIn, or dating site profiles are a form of first impression. These images are the face you want to present to the world. If that face is five, ten, or even fifteen years younger than you actually are, it may be worth considering why. If the reason is because you miss that youthful appearance, free of lines and bags, or simply don’t feel comfortable around cameras anymore, then a Toronto facelift could be just the thing to revitalize the face you show the world.
Everyone’s skin experiences aging differently. Some people look over a decade younger than their actual age and others are less fortunate. Sagging skin and wrinkles can make a person appear significantly older than they actually are and become a frequent point of insecurity and self-consciousness. Alternatively, you may simply not feel as old as you are and wish for your outward appearance to reflect your inward person. In both cases, getting a facelift in Toronto will help you achieve your goal.
There are a wide variety of non-surgical anti-aging treatments available from Botox to dermal fillers to chemical peels. All of these can address the signs of aging but their effects are relatively short-lived and need to be repeated every few months or on an annual basis. A facelift offers a significantly more long-term option, with results lasting for over a decade on average.
You may be fine with anti-aging products or getting annual treatments, but find that the effects aren’t as strong as they used to be. As we age, the lines and furrows in the skin become deeper and more pronounced, eventually reaching the point where they can persist through common anti-aging treatments. If you find this to be the case, then it may be worth considering a direct approach through cosmetic surgery.
Skin doesn’t just develop lines and sags as it ages. It also loses volume, which is why people’s cheeks tend to have a more hollow or sunken appearance, as they age. Facial volume has fewer treatment options available than skin tone, but a Toronto facelift is one of the top ways to restore fullness to the cheeks. This is done through directly repositioning underlying fat pads that have begun to shift over time and restores plump fullness and definition to the cheeks.
