What is a facelift? Have you been considering a facelift?

A facelift can rewind the effects of time, age, and stress on your face or neck like nothing else! Among popular facial rejuvenation procedures, a facelift in Toronto is the definitive solution for sagging and wrinkled skin that both men and women choose for lasting results.

The aesthetic goal for top facelift surgeons is to reveal a natural-looking, graceful improvement to your appearance that helps you look like your best, younger self. Not pulled or altered in a surgical way.

That’s a goal that most people like you share as well. So if you’re considering a facelift in Toronto, you’ll need to seek out skilled, experienced facial plastic surgeons to begin your exciting transformation!

In Toronto, Dr. Cory Torgerson’s facelift clients can choose from a variety of advanced, bespoke facelift surgery options to lift and smooth their brow, midface, jawline, and neck.

The customizability and age-appropriateness of facial rejuvenation procedures today is part of what makes them increasingly appealing. While cosmetic surgery has become much more socially acceptable for people of all walks of life, it remains truer than ever that Toronto facelift patients want to give a vibrant, young, and healthy impression, yet still look like themselves, even if they’ve had a little help.

Why is a facelift in Toronto the best choice for some?

A facelift is often the right choice, because surgical intervention to remove loose skin and revive lax facial tissue can achieve what no amount of laser tightening or cosmetic injection ever can.

Facial fullness diminishes naturally over time. As well, collagen, elasticity, and muscle tone dwindle. The effects of ageing are an unstoppable force, leaving many people over the age of 40 with deepening wrinkles, neck sagging, and facial hollows.

Facelift surgery comprehensively addresses multiple signs of wear and tear on your face, from the forehead down to the neck. Rather than mere surface smoothing, temporary volume replacement with dermal fillers, or wrinkle injections, surgical facial tightening can help put multiple layers (skin, deep muscle, and fat) back to where they once were.

The results also last much longer than any non-surgical treatment because of the meticulous, deep work that is done. This factor makes the cost of a facelift in Toronto a long-term investment in yourself.

It’s critical to work with a facelift surgeon who will tell you when it’s time to progress from lighter, temporary treatments to a procedure that will fast-track your confidence goals.

Dr. Cory Torgerson is a highly specialized facial plastic surgeon. As an MD, Ph.D., and FRCSC with extensive training, he chooses to focus his expertise on only the head and neck area. Few Toronto facelift surgeons have the credentials or experience level to create the consistent, stunning facelift results that he is well known for. Dr. Torgerson’s safety record, innovative techniques, and customized approach to each patient make him a leader in the field of facelift surgery.

At our modern, downtown Toronto surgical centre, you’re invited to a welcoming environment where your concerns and goals are understood. Every day, we help empower people like you to make changes that kickstart a more beautiful life.

Are you a good candidate for a facelift in Toronto?

The best Toronto facelift patients tend to share the same facial concerns, including:

  • Sagging skin at the jawline and lower face due to loss of muscle tone and elasticity
  • Loose, crepey skin around the eyes and mouth
  • Creases, lines, and wrinkles, including deep nasolabial folds or marionette lines at the mouth corners

When you meet with your surgeon to discuss a facelift in Toronto, they’ll ask you questions about your concerns and expectations. They’ll also assess your skin and consider genetics, lifestyle choices, weight fluctuations, and age. If you have been using dermal fillers for some time, they may suggest that it is time to stop adding volume and instead reduce the tissue laxity and downward movement that cause your signs of age.

There is no “right age” for a facelift. However, more than one of the above factors converge to alter facial appearance for most people between the ages of 40 and 60. Many people use cosmetic injections and dermal fillers to soften lines and replenish volume, beginning in their 30s or 40s. These treatments are safe and produce instant results. But they are limited in what they can achieve and will not reverse skin thinning and stretching.

Dr. Torgerson’s plastic surgery motto is “Do the right thing at the right time.” When your affordable, safe, and effective solutions are non-surgical, he is happy to recommend a plan utilizing the many powerful aesthetic devices and medical-grade skincare that he offers.

However, if your age concerns are more severe and you’re tired of combatting the unwanted changes in your face, it may be the perfect time to book a consultation for a natural facelift in Toronto.

The cohesiveness of a full face lift is something to be considered.

Targeted focus area

With a mini facelift, the costs will be less, because the focus area is much more targeted and less time-intensive. A full facelift runs higher in cost, because it generally includes the entire head and neck region so that there is smooth consistency and flow in appearance for all of the skin that is visible from the neck up.

The cohesiveness of a full face lift is something to be considered, although it does require more downtime. The mini face lift is just as popular, as different areas of a person’s face may age faster than other areas, and a mini-lift can target those zones specifically. A mini-facelift also requires slightly less recovery time, so busy people on the go find it more ideal.

When you are quoted a cost for your facelift or mini-lift, be sure that the quote includes all aspects of the surgery, such as anaesthesia fees, facility costs, and any other miscellaneous costs associated with the time when you are being cared for by the medical staff on the day of surgery. The quoted cost should also include all your post-operative care and follow-up appointments for the year post-surgery. The only extra costs would likely be the prescription drugs and antibiotics that will be prescribed for you to take following surgery. If you have an insurance drug plan, these will likely be covered.

the technique of facelift

The cost of a facelift varies from surgeon to surgeon, depending on the geographic region and the technique that is being employed for the facelift. In Toronto, the top facelift surgeons will charge upwards of $8,000 to $16,000 for a mini-lift and between $19,000 and $30,000 for a full facelift. What is of utmost importance is that you choose your facial plastic surgeon based on training, quality of work, rapport, and experience, not cost. After all, it’s your face, and you will be a visible, walking testimony of the cosmetic surgeon’s work.

Choosing a facial plastic surgeon (expert in head and neck surgery like face lift and rhinoplasty) over a general plastic surgeon (expert in body surgery like breast implants and liposuction) is the best place to start. Consulting a face lift surgeon will help you clarify whether you’re a candidate for a face lift and what a full face lift versus a mini face lift could do for you. Dr. Cory Torgerson offers private consultations to help patients identify their goals and receive a personalized, tailored quote for the face lift cost.

There are also various Toronto credit agencies specifically designed to provide financing for cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery, so this can be an option for patients seeking to have the facelift done sooner rather than later.
