Cosmetic Surgery Procedure: Facelift

Are you ready to finally undergo a facelift in Toronto? Planning to rejuvenate your look with this effective, advanced procedure is exciting. A facelift can erase years from your appearance, yet leave you looking naturally refreshed and still very much yourself.

At the Toronto Rhinoplasty and Facial Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre, Dr. Phillip Solomon is renowned for his facelift and facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Double board certified, he specializes entirely on the head and neck making him a much sought-after expert who delivers incredible results.

Toronto facelift patients are prepared with detailed instructions and guidelines before their OR day; however, this helpful guide will remind you about necessary steps to take beforehand.

Avoid Nicotine A Month or More Before

Because it affects your circulation and healing process, avoidance of all nicotine before and after surgery helps ensure beautiful outcomes. Eat a well-balanced diet, stay hydrated and avoid cold and flu germs as much as possible.

You’ll need to take a couple of weeks off work. Though light desk work from home could be comfortable for you after 1 week, most people find that swelling and bruising don’t resolve until 14 days, so you’ll want adequate time to lay low.

Two Weeks Before Facial Cosmetic Surgery

Medications which affect how you clot will be discontinued, and these include Aspirin or other pain relievers. Talk to your surgeon if you aren’t sure about any supplement or OTC medication.

You’ll need to pause your gym membership and arrange for pet or childcare post-procedure. Since you won’t be able to drive yourself anywhere after your facelift, this is a great time to ask friends or family to help you get home and comfortably settled once cleared to leave. It can also be useful to ask someone for help getting around, taking medication and preparing food for the first few days.

One Week Prior

If possible, fill your prescription for pain medication or antibiotics this week, so it’s ready at home when you need it. Arrange for some easy to prepare meals, quick snacks and drinks, so you don’t need to run errands for a week or two.

The night before your facelift in Toronto

At this point, try not to spend any more time reading about your procedure online, unless on a site recommended by your surgeon. Many people worry needlessly, seeking invalid sources for info at the last minute. Being a little anxious is normal. If you have questions, your patient care coordinator or surgeon will be happy to put your mind at ease.

Prep your bedroom and livingroom with lots of pillows and you may even want to elevate the head of your mattress.

Gather up your favourite music, books and movies. Don’t eat or drink after midnight. Set your alarm, and try to get some rest.

We welcome you to contact us with questions or to arrange your personal consultation with Dr. Solomon. A facelift can be a gamechanger for confidence in one’s personal and professional life.
