Rhytidectomy, more commonly referred to as a Facelift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to fight the signs of facial aging, creating a fresher, more youthful appearance. Due to its ability to turn back the hands of time and restore self-esteem, this procedure has quickly gained popularity.
In fact, in 2016 alone, over 120,000 rhytidectomy procedures were performed in the US. Due to the fact that a facelift is a cosmetic procedure, it is considered an elective surgery, therefore insurance will not cover the cost. However, more and more patients believe that the cost of a Toronto facelift is well worth it, due to the amazing physical and emotional results it yields.
Over time, as your skin loses elasticity and its collagen production slows down, the face begins to wrinkle, crease, droop, and even sag. As a result, many individuals are troubled by undesirable changes such as the development of sagging jowls, a droopy double chin, and wrinkles. Luckily, a facelift in Toronto can effectively address these problems, which makes it a worthwhile investment for many patients.
During a facelift, the facial plastic surgeon makes incisions around the face to lift and pull the skin, tightening loose skin to correct bothersome features such as drooping jowls and a sagging double chin while also smoothing wrinkles and eradicating fine lines.
When performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon, a facelift can help patients look 5-10 years younger. Although patients will continue to age after the procedure, in most cases they will appear younger than their age for many years to come. In fact, one study found that five years post-operatively 76% of patients continued to look younger than they did prior to the procedure.
In addition to its physical benefits, a Toronto facelift can bring about incredible emotional results. Unfortunately, women tend to feel less confident than men, particularly as they age, largely due to the emphasis our society places on the importance of youth and beauty.
As a result, as they begin to show signs of aging, many women feel that they are overlooked or even invisible to society, which has a detrimental impact on their self-esteem. Since confidence often plays a significant role in one’s success in both their personal and professional lives, low self-esteem has a negative impact on the lives of many women.
However, the changes brought about by a facelift can help to restore a woman’s confidence while also helping the patient to look as young on the outside as they feel on the inside. The changes brought about by this procedure are often life changing, as many patients feel a new sense of confidence, which frequently results in greater happiness, peace of mind, and success post-operatively.
Depending on the patient’s needs and goals for the procedure, the cost of a facelift in Toronto ranges from $13,500-$20,000 Although it is a large investment, patients find that it is worth the cost, as you cannot put a price on happiness.
