A Toronto Facelift - Still The Safest Way To Achieve Long Term Facial Anti-Aging

Cosmetic Surgery Procedure: Facelift

“Facial aging” is the collective term for the loss of tone, loss of fatty tissue, and the emergence of wrinkles and excess skin that happens over time. The exact causes are a mixture of many factors including genetics, sun exposure, skin care (or lack thereof), smoking and even the force of gravity. Although there are many methods to restore your face to its youthful appearance, few can match the long-term effectiveness of a Toronto facelift with a skilled cosmetic surgeon.

What Does A Facelift Do To Counter Facial Aging?

A facelift will remove excess skin, creating a more contoured jawline and more youthful facial appearance. The underlying muscles are also tightened to further help restore the natural contours of the face. The effects are easiest to see along the jawline and neck, two areas that frequently see sagging skin from aging.

Involvement Of The Neck

Your neck and face are part of the same continuum and a “face and neck lift” refers to the same type of procedure as a facelift. Most concerns about facial aging involve the neck in some way so both are treated as part of any facial anti-aging procedure.

How Long Do Results Last?

As mentioned above, a Toronto facelift is one of the better ways to achieve long-lasting anti-aging effects. More specifically, the results of a full facelift can be expected to remain for an average of 5.- 8 years. The same factors that influence how fast skin ages, the nature of your individual facelift, and aftercare can all affect how long the results of a facelift will remain visible.


There is more than one type of facelift in Toronto, and although each can produce anti-aging effects, not everyone is in need of the same procedure. Depending on which areas of your face are showing the largest signs of aging, you may find one of these to be more to your liking.

Who Qualifies?

The ideal candidate for a facelift is someone who has specific concerns about their appearance, either has no other medical issues or has their issues under control (for instance, that they regularly take blood pressure medication, if any), and is a non-smoker or can at least refrain from smoking for several weeks before the date of the facelift.

SMAS Facelift

This targets the SMAS (superficial facial muscle) layer of the skin to tighten and support the muscles of the lower face.

Deep Plane Facelift

As the name implies, this targets a deeper layer of the skin than the typical facelift and works on the lower face and cheek area. This type of facelift goes deep enough that it can reposition the fat pads of the cheeks to create a more contoured and youthful look. Deep Plane Facelift results can last longer than those of a normal facelift.

Neck Lift

Sometimes, a person’s anti-aging concerns are most focused on their neck area. A neck lift removes excess skin and fat and re-tightens the muscles in the neck region to produce a natural, youthful, and smooth neck, but does not go higher than the chin.


This is a relatively new option compared to some of the other face lift variations and is short for “minimal-access cranial suspension”. It is a more minimalist facelift that focuses on addressing sagging skin in the mid-face, jawline and neck regions. As it is a more minimal and gentler approach, this type of Toronto facelift can be good for people who are looking at cosmetic surgery for the first time.

Facelift Toronto Surgery FAQs

  • What Is The Difference Between A Deep Plane Facelift And A Regular Facelift?

    The Deep Plane Facelift Technique is the most advanced technique in facial rejuvenation. Dr. Philip Solomon is one of the few surgeons in Canada who uses this technique, as it is a highly specialized procedure in Facelift Surgery. The Deep Plane Facelift technique repositions the deep structures below the skin, often providing longer lasting and more natural results.

  • How Long Does A Deep Plane Facelift Last?

    There are many variables that contribute to the longevity of a Facelift.

    A Deep Plane Facelift is a more invasive Facelift that can provide longer lasting results compared to other less invasive Facelift surgeries. A Deep Plane Facelift can last anywhere from 10-15 years depending on the individual. While a Facelift can help people look 10-15 years younger, it does not stop the aging process. Genetics, lifestyle including diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and sun exposure, all contribute to the aging process.

  • Should I Lose Weight Before Facelift Surgery?

    It’s always best to be at your ideal weight prior to your Facelift surgery. While Deep Plane Facelift surgery is intended to remove excess skin of the face and neck while also addressing underlying muscles, there is an increased risk for skin laxity following weight loss. Weight loss often eliminates the appearance of a “double chin” caused by excess fat, leaving behind a “turkey neck”. This turkey neck can only be treated effectively with Facelift Surgery after you have achieved your weight-loss goal.

  • What Age is Best for Facelift Surgery?

    The average age of the Facelift patient has changed over the years. What was once a procedure commonly sought out by patients in their 60’s, is now regularly desired by those in their 40’s and 50’s. The aspiration to age ‘gracefully” has shifted to the desire to hold on to that youthful look for as long as possible. Patients in their 40’s and 50’s will can often have achieve great results and an easier recovery due to their age.

  • What is the Downtime for a Facelift?

    Recovery from Deep Plane Facelift surgery can vary from patient to patient. We recommend 2 weeks downtime to rest, recover and allow time to heal. Suture removal can begin as early as Day 7 and continue through to Day 14. Patients can often return to work as early as 2 weeks following their Facelift surgery. The incision, however, will take longer to heal, up to one year for most scars, and should be well concealed if performed by an experienced surgeon.

  • How Do You Sleep After Facelift Surgery?

    Having restful a restful nights’ sleep is very important following your Deep Plane Facelift surgery. We recommend sleeping with your head elevated on 2-3 pillows for the first 2-3 weeks following your surgery. Keeping your head above your heart can help minimize swelling overnight. You may also want to use a travel pillow for increased support if you’re a restless sleeper.
