Cosmetic Surgery Procedure: Facelift

Each of us will inevitably experience it; the dreaded facial sagging the result of gravity, that comes with age for all of us. Depending on the elasticity naturally present in your skin, fine lines and then deeper wrinkles and sagging may begin to appear on a person’s face as early as their 30’s or 40’s. Men and women often seek non-surgical solutions to combat the appearance of aging with non-surgical and non-invasive face lift methods such as laser treatments and facial injectables.

These cosmetic treatments used to treat aging skin can be very effective for many people during mid life, however over time, natural hydration, collagen and elastin in the skin will fade drastically so the neck and facial skin will form lines, excess fullness or sagging.

What Is The Ideal Age To Get A Facelift

When changes become severe enough to bother the patient as they look in the mirror each day, it may be time to address these concerns with a surgical face lift procedure. The most common ages for people to seek a facelift in Toronto are between the ages or 40 and 60.

A facelift surgery can restore a youthful and rested look, but the aesthetic goal should always be to look like yourself, not drastically tight, pulled or “fake”. The SMAS facelift, also referred to as a rhytidectomy, is a complex procedure used to significantly lift and restore the firm, smooth appearance of the skin.

SMAS Facial Muscle Tightening

The superficial musculo-aponeurotic system under your skin can atrophy and sag over time. Our muscles have great impact on the appearance of our features and on our perceived age. Dr. Solomon can use this meticulous technique to lift and tighten underlying structures first, then gently redraped the facial skin over with precise tension for a firm yet natural look. Unnecessary tension is taken off of the overlying skin using this method, so that incisions heal more flawlessly, and the look achieved is natural.

Improved Facial Features & Contours

A mid face lift can elevate the cheeks creating a fuller, rounded look and smoothing the under-eye area. A lower facelift will eliminate jowls and hanging or excessively full neck contours which reveals jawline bone structure and separates the chin from the neck. Liposuction can assist with this transformation and the effect is to create an overall slimmer, more refined look to the face and neck.
