You might consider a facelift if your face shows signs of aging including:
- Sagging in the mid-face region
- Creases that run deep under the lower eyelids
- Creases along the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Displaced or fallen fat
- Jowls due to loss of muscle tone in the lower region on the face
- Fat or skin deposits in the chin and jaw
In Toronto, Ontario, these age-related conditions on your face and neck can be remedied with a variety of facelift procedures, including the traditional method, neck lift, or the limited incision procedure. The traditional procedure begins at the temples in your hairline, going around the ears and ending in the lower scalp. Fat is repositioned or removed from the jowls, neck, and face. The underlying skin and tissue is also repositioned and the deeper layers of the muscles are lifted. The skin is then re-draped over your uplifted face and any excess skin is trimmed.
Am I the right candidate for a facelift?
If signs of aging in your face bother you, you may be the right candidate for a facelift. Facelift surgery in Toronto is a good option for men and women who are physically healthy, are non-smokers, and who have a positive outlook with realistic goals regarding enhancements to their appearance. Discussing your desires with Dr. Plant can help determine your eligibility for a facelift in Richmond Hill or Mississauga, Ontario.
What can you expect from your facelift procedure?
Once the bruises diminish, you will see a youthful appearance to your face. You can ensure this rejuvenated look is long-lasting by avoiding any sun damage with the use of sunscreen. Toronto residents can also prolong the life of their new look by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
What is facelift recovery like?
Once your facelift surgery in Toronto is completed, a bandage may be placed around your face to decrease any swelling or bruising. There might be a drain used for draining excess fluids or blood that may collect under the skin. Your recovery instructions will include caring for the treated area, oral or local medications to reduce any potential infections and aid healing, as well as any specific concerns you must look out for. You will also be informed when to visit Dr. Plant for a follow-up visit at his Toronto office.
A neck lift procedure involves making an incision from the start of the ear lobe to the lower scalp going behind the ear. Any excess skin is removed and the fat and muscle is repositioned in order to lift the jowl and neck. Some patients, in Richmond Hill or Vaughan, may require an additional incision under the chin for the most effective results.
How can a neck lift help me?
It is not an exaggeration that your neck speaks more about your age than your face. Any bags present on the jowls, loose skin on the neck, and fat on the chin could be due to a number of factors. These factors could include aging or weight loss or even genetics, and no amount of exercise or diet can change the appearance of these problems. A neck lift in Toronto, Ontario, alone or accompanied by facial liposuction, could help you improve the shape of the jawline, neck, and chin.

He can answer any questions, address any concerns, and talk more about the benefits of surgery during a consultation at his Toronto office. Residents of Richmond Hill or Mississauga can also call his office at (416) 907-4704.
