To give yourself the best possible opportunity to achieve the results you are looking for, it is extremely important to do your research and select a well-known, board certified surgeon who specializes in facelifts. The number one cause of unnatural and obvious looking results following a facelift, is an under qualified plastic surgeon.

What Should Your Toronto Facelift Planning Involve

A surgeon with extensive experience and the necessary credentials will be able to customize your facelift to suit your individual features, and use a variety of techniques to get you to your desired goals.

When it comes to getting a facelift in Toronto, Dr. Philip Solomon is a well-known and highly experienced surgeon in Canada with 20 years in Facial Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Solomon, an Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeon, practicing Facial Plastic Surgery has specialized in Facelifts and Rhinoplasty Reconstruction to his patients of all ethnic backgrounds and ages. With an exclusive focus on facial procedures, Dr. Solomon has extensive experience in the various facelift techniques that can be used to provide patients with the most natural looking results.

Given that a facelift is a complex, invasive procedure, it is not surprising that many people are apprehensive about going under the knife. If you are interesting in a Toronto facelift, but don’t feel ready for a surgery, dermal fillers could be a good option to start with. Facial fillers may be able to give you a glimpse of what you can potentially achieve with a facelift, however it is important to remember that the results from dermal fillers are temporary.

Planning ahead for your recovery is one of the best ways to ensure that you achieve the results you are looking for without a lengthy and uncomfortable healing period.

Dr. Philip Solomon provides all facelift patients with comprehensive pre and postoperative care instructions that will help with the planning process.

In the days immediately following your procedure, you will need rest to allow your body to heal. It is important to plan ahead as well to take a couple of weeks off from work, as well as put a support system in place to help with household chores, childcare and pet care for a few days. Filling the prescriptions for pain management medications provided by Dr. Solomon ahead of time will also help you have a stress free and smooth recovery.

When preparing for your Toronto Facelift, it is also helpful to continue to exercise regularly and remain active, as this will help with your recovery. Avoiding smoking and alcohol for the weeks leading up to the procedure is also highly recommended.

Smoking increases the risk of complications during surgery as well as hampers the healing process. Alcohol can also interfere with the anesthetic required for the surgery and should therefore be avoided.

If you are considering a Toronto Facelift, the best way to get all the information you need to formulate a plan, is to have a consultation with a facial plastic surgeon.
