Many of our patients coming in to discuss a facelift in Toronto, often end up choosing to combine the surgery with other cosmetic procedures. In fact, facelifts are one of the most common procedures to be performed in conjunction with another cosmetic technique. The reason for this growing trend can be mostly attributed to the benefit of saving money and reducing recovery time by combining multiple procedures.
The number one procedure patients opt for to accompany a Toronto facelift, is eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is a dermal rejuvenation surgery in which excess skin, fat and tissue is removed from around the eyes. This type of procedure can address both the upper and lower eyelids to give patients a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Another common surgery to combine with a facelift is a brow lift. In this procedure, the brows are elevated to reduce the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows and give the appearance of “brighter eyes”. A brow lift is a relatively simple procedure, of which the effects can last up to ten years, making it a popular choice to address signs of aging around the eye and brow region.
For those looking to add more definition to their jawline, a chin implant can also be inserted at the same time as a Toronto facelift. A chin implant can help to tighten neck muscles as well as improve the contour of the chin, resulting in a better facial balance.
Although facelifts are an effective means to tighten sagging skin, they do not address wrinkles and fine lines in the skin. For this reason, patients often choose to add laser resurfacing treatments, microdermabrasion or injectable fillers to their facelift. These types of treatments are generally easy to perform in conjunction with a facelift since they are all in the same general area.
It is also possible to combine treatments for other parts of the body with a facelift. Breast implants, Breast lifts or Liposuction are all common treatments than can be included with a facelift. Although there are many treatments that safely be performed in conjunction with a facelift, more complex and extensive procedures such as a tummy tuck, thigh lift or arm lift are usually best performed as separate procedures.
Combination procedures are a great way to not only avoid going under the knife more than once, but also to consolidate the recovery period and reduce surgical costs such as operating room fees and anesthesia.
Although it is always important to choose a reputable and highly skilled cosmetic surgeon, it is even more crucial if you are choosing to undergo a combination procedure.
